Hands on with DaVinci's IQ Vaporizer

Next on the list of product reviews is the IQ from DaVinci, a new, compact, and beautiful vaporizer. The IQ fits in the palm of my hand and is made up of aluminum, ceramic zirconia, and a removable rechargeable battery. Outside of the looks, the IQ come loaded with temperature options such as precision temperature control from 250 to 430 degrees, boost mode, and smart path, which has four temperature settings that heat to a consistent range. The display does not use a 
screen but consists of 51 LED lights and vibrates when powered on/off and when heated to the desired temperature.
The flavor in which the IQ was able to provide was the great, consistent, and smooth. DaVinci was able to provide this by way of the ceramic zirconia air path, flavor chamber, and mouthpieces, that’s right mouthpieces. One is a flat mouthpiece which is best for taking on the go in my pocket and the other is a 10mm which happened to be my favorite. Another feature that needs mentioning is the smart path heat settings and boost mode, the smart path setting heats to a specific temperature and gradually increases so temperature is not lost, while boost does just that by increasing the temperature as long as you hold down the power button.
The IQ would have had a perfect review but I did have a little trouble with the app. I was able to register the device to my phone but when I turned on the device and opened the DaVinci app, my phone was unable to connect and the lights turned off while the vaporizer continued to get hot and would rapidly discharge the battery.  DaVinci claims up to an hour and a half of use between charges, but in my usage it was closer to an hour before I got the low battery notification, luckily the IQ has a removable battery so buying a spare is an option if needed.
I have reviewed a number of vaporizers, many of them good if not great, but this device is far and away my favorite due to the flavor it never failed to deliver, whether freshly loaded or reheated, it’s consistent and easy to use. While the IQ comes with a heavy price point of $274.99, it’s build, size, and performance had me coming back to the IQ over my other vaporizers. Lastly, should you decide to go with DaVinci’s IQ, I would suggest taking a look at the accessory and aromatherapy pages to see the many additional options for this mighty little vaporizer.
