Why The DaVinci IQ Vaporizer Should Be Your Next Purchase
The DaVinci IQ represents a shift within the portable vaporizer market. No longer are consumers satisfied with power alone, they also want intelligent, discrete, and intuitive devices. The DaVinci IQ ticks all of these boxes.
- The “Precise Mode” setting is the most basic way to use the DaVinci IQ. It allows input of a temperature with no added features.
- The DaVinci IQ offers four preset “Smart Paths”. These settings, or heating profiles, are custom DaVinci presets that heat up gradually over a 10-minute session. Using the DaVinci app allows full customization of your own “Smart Path” characteristics.
- “Boost Mode” is ideal for those who are short on time. This mode boosts the DaVinci IQ to its maximum temperature while inhaling, a perfect way to vape quickly.
With the IQ, DaVinci has set out to construct a market-leading dried herb portable vaporizer. This means no concentrates feature. As a result, the IQ vaporizer is focused on doing one function at a very high level. The portability of the Davinci IQ is another feature that allows for easy transportation.
Although there may be a learning curve for some to get the most out of their DaVinci IQ, this vaporizer performs exceptionally well. Flavourful vapor from the IQ vaporizer is one aspect that sets it aside from its contemporaries. The IQ vaporizer takes approximately 180 minutes to charge from a dead battery, but it is usable while charging. As with most conduction vaporizers, long and slow draws reign supreme.
To conclude, The Davinci IQ meets all expectations for the price. A very similar unit to the high-end Pax 3, this vape holds its weight as an ultra-elite unit. Also, major media outlets are not the only ones praising the IQ portable vaporizer. Others such as Business Matters, PC Mag, and even men’s style magazine GQ also recommend this portable vaporizer.
How To Clean The DaVinci IQ
This portable vaporizer is especially simple to clean and manage. Cleaning is an extremely important part of vaporizer ownership.
After every session with the DaVinci IQ, empty the oven thoroughly and use the included cleaning brush. A quick swish around the oven after each session will ensure efficient sessions. The cleaning wipes, also included, will wipe any residue off the ceramic pearl and mouthpiece.
For deeper cleans, isopropyl alcohol and a q-tip work well within the oven. Remove the flavour chamber from the vaporizer and clean with isopropyl alcohol. Below the flavour chamber resides a silicone gasket. This area can accumulate debris over a long period of time. Using the DaVinci cleaning brush as well as the q-tip/isopropyl combo is highly recommended.
Upkeep of the DaVinci IQ portable vaporizer is markedly important to enjoying amazing, flavourful vapor every single time.
All DaVinci IQ portable vaporizers sold by City Vaporizer are 100% authentic, backed by a 10-year warranty from DaVinci.
