DaVinci IQC Vaporizer
The Davinci IQC Vaporizer is a new product that is truly in a class of its own. This dry herb vaporizer elevates the vaping experience to a whole new level, and today we’ll look at some key factors that help it to do so.
The manufacturer’s website describes the Davinci IQC Vaporizer as such: “Highlighting Clean First technology, Temperature Control, App Connectivity, Replaceable Battery, and USB-C charging, this dual use vaporizer has it all.” The IQC is the successor to previous Davinci products, the IQ and the IQ2. While the IQ2 improved upon the original design of the IQ, the IQC represents a leap in quality and design over both of the devices.
The Davinci IQC Vaporizer has an aluminum body, and a mouthpiece that can be opened up to replace batteries and clean out the airpath. Speaking of batteries, the IQC is powered by an 18650 battery, which can be charged internally or externally if the user does not want to replace it. The bottom piece of the device can also be opened up to expose the heating system, which consists of a glass lined ceramic oven and a zirconia pearl.
The front of the device has a user interface consisting of LED lights, while the side has a few buttons used to activate the IQC. This LED interface will be used often, as the lights will flash and create numbers and symbols to show user important information. For example, when choosing your temperature, the lights will display the temperature that you have chosen.The device comes with two mouthpiece options that can be switched out depending on the users preference. One is a flat mouthpiece, while the other is an extended tube. The vapor path of the IQC sees it flow through one small chamber. Just like the heating pearl, the chamber is made of zirconia and does an excellent job of cooling the vapor as it travels through, ensuring that it will not burn you when it makes contact. The chamber can also be completely removed from the device, which is super helpful when trying to clean it out.
The IQC works with two different ways of loading: directly loading your dry herbs into the oven, or by loading prepacked dosage pods and extract kits. Dry herbs are loaded directly into the oven, which is a very easy process due to the user-friendly design of the device. Dosage pods can be slotted right into the oven as well. Having the capability to work with both methods is definitely a plus, as different users will have their own preferences.
As previously mentioned, the heating system of the IQC consists of a zirconia pearl and a glass lined ceramic oven. The zirconia pearl is a very important part of the device, as it is responsible for providing consistent and even heat distribution and ensuring that you won’t encounter any hot or cold spots while using. The pearl can also be moved in or out slightly, meaning users can adjust the amount of space in their oven depending on how much herb they have loaded into it. The device is also extremely accurate when it comes to temperature, as users can control the temperature + or – in single degree increments. Many other vaporizers have set temperature intervals around 25 degrees, so potential buyers will likely be pulled in by this feature. However, the IQC also has a smart path heating mode, which lets the device take control of the heating to provide a much easier, hands free experience while still being high in quality.
The IQC Vaporizer fits into the palm of your hand, and is lightweight while still being sturdy. The device does not ship with any sort of travel or carrying case, but most will find that a case is not needed to take the IQC around with them. This device does not have any fragile points on the exterior, so users won’t have to worry about potentially damaging it if you put it in a purse or bag while going out. The IQC is also on the smaller side and is inconspicuous looking, so many users will be able to use it in public if they desire.
How the DaVinci IQC differences from the IQ2
One of the first things potential buyers might notice about the IQC is the new price point. This model happens to be $70 cheaper than the IQ2, as it can be purchased for $229. This is huge for many people, as $70 is a very large price drop, especially for a vaporizer that many would consider to be an upgrade over the IQ2. Some may think the models are the same, as their designs have the same basic look. However, there are many differences between the two. The lid around the mouthpiece of the IQC is now made of heat resistant polymer, while the DaVinci IQ2 had an aluminum lid just like the body of the device. One major change, and one that will be a big selling point for many people, is the change of charging method. While the IQ2 utilized micro USB charging, the IQC utilizes USB-C charging. USB-C charging is becoming significantly more popular, so many will welcome this new change. This new way of charging allows the device to fully charge up in around two hours, and users can charge other devices from the IQC if they wish. The IQC takes the already great IQ2 and makes it a much more user-friendly experience. It is definitely an upgrade that has an even better price.
The Davinci IQC Vaporizer is a top of the line device in every way. The IQC builds upon the successes of the IQ and IQ2 while also improving upon both of those vaporizers in multiple ways. For a fair price of $229, anyone who is in the market for a new vaporizer should definitely check out the IQC.
