The vaporizing industry is now one of the biggest and most competitive out there, so when we combine it with the cannabis plant it takes things to a whole new level! Over the past decade or so we have seen a rise in the number of marijuana smokers choosing to consume their herb with a vaporizer, as a healthier alternative to the more traditional method of smoking.
There is some tough competition out there, but the DaVinci IQ has to be up there as one of the best, if not THE best dry herb vaporizer on the market. In this article, we are going to look at the DaVinci IQ in detail to see if it is, in fact, the number one vape that you NEED in 2018!
An Overview Of The DaVinci IQ
Released back in 2016, the DaVinci IQ is actually the third vaporizer to come from DaVinci, with their first unit (known simply as the ‘DaVinci Vaporizer’) being released in 2012 and their second, called ‘Ascent,’ just a year later, these guys aren’t new to the industry!
That experience is obvious when we look at the DaVinci IQ, which is much more innovative than it’s predecessors. This vape not only looks great, but the high-quality materials and high function ability makes it arguably one of the best we have ever seen!
Coming in at a premium price of $274.99, though, this is certainly a luxurious purchase, but if you ask is it worth the money, we would have to say yes! Not only is the DaVinci IQ highly customizable, but it’s super portable, great to look, at and smokes (well, vapes) like a dream!
Key Features of The DaVinci IQ
So, what makes the DaVinci IQ so great compared to its competitors? While there are a lot of great features to discuss, perhaps the first thing we HAVE to talk about is the unit’s zirconia ceramic build. If there is one thing we have to take note of here, it is the super sturdy, luxurious choice of materials – it is slightly heavier than many of its competitors, but the feeling of quality and durability adds to the luxury feel of this vape.
The zirconia pearl in the oven chamber not only enhances the experience by ensuring an even heat distribution, but also guarantees a consistent temperature during the entirety of your vaping session.
Also, along with the quality design of the device itself, the guys at DaVinci have re-vamped and improved their mouthpieces, making them longer for a cooler vapor that won’t be harsh or burn on inhaling.
With awesome lighting and a sleek brushed aluminum exterior, the DaVinci IQ screams high-quality from the get-go. That’s just on the outside, though; the inner workings of both the vape itself and the high-tech app takes this machine above and beyond so many of the other vapes available at the moment.
With the option of a removable battery (which makes it great for travel), smart paths technology (which allows for customization of everything from the temperature to the amount of battery you wish to use while vaping), and a host of other nifty features, it is hard to find fault with the DaVinci IQ.
Here is a quick lowdown on all the features that the DaVinci IQ has to offer:
- 51 LED Light Display

Pros Of The DaVinci IQ
When we take a look at the great list of features, it seems obvious why someone would want to purchase the DaVinci IQ! However, with such a high price point compared to many other great devices, we feel it is worth looking at the main arguments for this device.
While many other vapes are now extremely customizable, none up to now have come with such a high quality of build. The Zirconia Pearl is the star of the show with this device and is what sets it apart from its competitors. With the material allowing for exceptional flavor that goes above and beyond many other cheaper devices, it is one huge plus for those unsure whether to part with their money.
The chamber will also double as a storage chamber, allowing you to get the very most out of your herb, with zero wastage! This along with the fantastic heat insulation makes the device incredibly cost effective in the long run!
The amount of customization with the DaVinci IQ is great, but what we love is that it is all optional which makes it a great choice for both veteran smokers and newbies alike! If you are likely to feel daunted by a host of options, stick with the pre-set settings and enjoy getting to know your vape at your own pace. Likewise, if you get bored easily and want to make the most out of your experience, the device allows for so much customization that you are unlikely to be disappointed!
The Smart Path mode allows for a gradually increasing temperature during the session so that you can get the most out of your session. Also, for those less experienced you can use the default smart path, or customize it to your preference!
Finally, while it may not be the most important aspect, one massive plus here is simply the way this vape looks! It is sleek, small and weighty for a high-quality grip, but discreet enough for those who don’t want everyone to know what they’re doing. The unit comes in copper, blue, gunmetal grey or stealth, and all come with a brushed finish.
Cons of The DaVinci IQ
While there isn’t a great deal to find fault at with this device, one thing to note is that while the battery can last a good hour per session, the charge can take up to 3 hours if you’re going from 0 – 100%. This isn’t an issue for those who won’t be using their vape constantly, but can potentially be a concern for those who are traveling around a lot with it.
Also, while this vape is heavier than many (which may be an off-putting feature for some) the weight allows for a real quality feel and most will love how it feels in the hand.
Final Thoughts About the DaVinci IQ
There are so many things we love about this vape, from its unique build quality to its phenomenal technology and smart capabilities, the DaVinci IQ is up there as one of the best devices on the market for 2018!
While the price point is quite high here, the versatility of the product means it can be used, altered, customized and enjoyed for years. Not only this, but DaVinci has managed to deliver a unique high performing vaporizer that is suitable for anybody – beginners and experienced vapers alike. This is the perfect choice for anyone looking to upgrade!
