DaVinci as expected has outdone themselves once again in the creation of a new state of the art dual use vaporizer. The DaVinci IQ2 is compatible with dry herbs, solid and waxy concentrates while properly vaporizing each material individually as it should. The internal material is made from glass and ceramic, which allows vapor to pass through with pure herbal flavor without any impurities as seen with most vaporizers on the market. With perfection like this, you gotta to pay to play. The DaVinci IQ2 is not designed to break the bank as it isn't as pricey as vapes made by Storz & Bickel but it most definitely is a direct competitor of theirs.
The flavor chamber has a zirconia ceramic vapor pathway, the oven is glass glazed ceramic using heat-not-burn tech and the pearl (interior) portion has a zirconia ceramic insulative spacer. Also, the mouthpiece is made from zirconia ceramic. This allows the flavor to remain pure. The vapor produced at any temperature chosen is on average 50% cooler than any other vape, resulting in a consistent smooth draw. One of the major changes the IQ2 has is the simple adjustable airflow option that you can change at any moment. It also has increased insulation from the battery for better performance.
Ease of Use
The well known IQ vaping mode options such as Smart Paths and Precision Mode are upgraded to work better than ever. Specific temperature can be chosen through the APP and presets can be used via device buttons. In under 30 seconds, the vape will reach your desired temperature and be ready for vaping.
An awesome feature which is rare to vaporizers is the removable 18650 battery. This means you can go travel with pre-charged batteries and never run out of juice. The tool/pick is carefully hidden in a compartment within the IQ2 so you will never have to carry a separate bag for tools.
Difference between IQ1 and IQ2
- With the IQ2 you are able to use both dry flower and extracts
- Significantly better heating system due to technology upgrades
- Improved battery life due to increased efficiency
- Air dial that allows you to customize airflow and draw resistance on the fly
- Improved design, sturdiness, durability and overall quality of material
Overall, DaVinci makes incredible vaporizers where either one that you choose from will satisfy your needs. At the end of the day, you just need to figure out your budget and understand that DaVinci specializes in "Dry Herb Vaping" so the fact that some of their vaporizers allow you to use concentrates, that should not be the primary reason of purchasing their vapes. Their vaporizers are known for being some of the best dry herb vaporizers on the market.
