DaVinci IQC Dry Herb Vaporizer Review

The DaVinci IQC vaporizer is the fourth vaporizer that the company has released in their five years on the market. As a top industry brand, the IQC is no different than its predecessors and has improved upon past models. This is a product that is sure to give users the ultimate experience no matter their experience level. This is a high-level vaporizer that won’t break the bank. It is in-depth, portable, and has dry herb and concentrate abilities. In this review, we will be going over the overall upgrades to the vaporizer, as well as the full range of settings and answering any common asked questions about the vape.

DaVinci Vaporizer Quality and Precision

With the new and improved IQC, users can look forward to having much more control over their sessions. With the addition of Smart Path settings, there are three pre-set options: Flavor, Rest, Body, and Mind. This is a great addition for users who can quickly swap to their favorite setting, or for beginners looking for a bit of guidance when it comes to hits. On the other hand, there is a precision setting which allows users to control the temperature down to single degree. In the application itself for the IQC vape, you will also have control of session durations and frequency, as well as any general information. The design has been streamlined to bring vapers an incredibly slick design that is still very comfortable to use.

What are the differences between the IQC and the IQ2?

When it comes to the upgrades, there are many for possible buyers to consider! The design has been overhauled to a black aluminum shell that is durable and stylish as ever. The oven has been equipped with a ceramic top-coat to allow for no possible metallic aftertaste. DaVinci has also added an optional Zirconia flavor chamber. This can used to add any type of fruit rind or aromatic flowers you’d like to add a unique flavor and smell to whatever product you choose to use. The battery has been significantly upgraded in this model compared to the IQ or the DaVinci IQ2 – a much-needed quality of life change. The charger has been upgraded to a USB-C charging port, reducing charge times.

What are the IQC Key Features?

One of the first things that comes to mind that makes the IQC unique is the price point. The IQC vape comes in cheaper than older models. However, it hits all of the major quality points you’d expect from a great vaporizer at a very comfortable price. Compared to units such as the Mighty, the metal exterior is a very sleek and welcome design and is very comfortable in the hand while hitting or while carrying around in your pocket. The heat up time has been significantly reduced and is now very competitive for the market. The lid has been upgraded to be an anti-microbial polymer, meaning better safety when it comes to bacteria and ease of cleaning.

The dimensions are 1.75 inches wide, 3.6 inches tall, and .97 in length, plus It only weighs 1/3 of a pound. Because of this, it is one of the smallest vapes on the market.  As well as this, the size means it is very portable and great for parties to share clouds with friends.

What is the IQC vape heating system?

The DaVinci IQC vaporizer relies on a conduction-based oven in the chamber. This means that bowl will always be heated. Unlike something like the Mighty, this means it is best practice to fully finish the entire session once started. With the convection oven however, the IQC vaporizer’s high air flow will prevent any product from burning. Based on our personal findings, each session will take roughly twelve minutes.  Besides the four pre-set temperature settings, vapers can also raise the Fahrenheit to a maximum of 430 (221C) – More than enough to hit any of your favorite concentrates. With an average heating time of thirty seconds, this is a very competitive time!

What is the IQC battery life?

Despite the 18650 batteries being the same as the IQ2, the battery will last you two hours on average compared to one on the IQ2. For most, this will mean about six to eight sessions on average before needing a recharge. However, this battery is both easily removeable and replaceable if you run out of juice on the go and would like to continue. As far as charging goes, the micro-USB has been upgraded to the USB-C, taking the charging time from six down to two. As an added bonus, you will now be able to charge your phone with the IQC vaporizer with the reverse charging feature!

Warranty / What’s in the Box?

A five-year manufacturer’s warranty is included in the purchase. The box comes with:

  • DaVinci IQC
  • 18650 Battery*
  • Users Manual
  • 10mm Water Adapter
  • Extra Pick Tool
  • 3x Alcohol Wipes
  • Brush Tool
  • 3ft Braided Nylon USB To Type-C Cable
  • Color options of blue, red, green, and black

*Users will have to purchase replacement batteries separately

Is the DaVinci IQC easy to use?

At the top of vaporizer is the soft polymer mouthpiece and on the underside is the ceramic oven and an adjustable zirconia pearl.  It’s very easy to figure out how things work, and the temperature control with the help of the app is sure to please even the newest of beginners. The boost function can be activated by holding down the power button during an active session. This will raise the temperature to max for as long as the power is held. Toggling between Fahrenheit and Celsius can be achieved by pressing down on all three buttons. And lastly, the current temperature can be displayed by simply clicking the power once during a session. All other relevant information can be found on the easy-to-follow application!

How is the IQC vapor quality?

Just like the IQ2, the IQC will produce vapor that is easy to hit at the perfect potency based on your own preferences. The zirconium pearl will help you to get a full and lasting session by gently compressing the product towards the heating element. For better airflow, you can choose to pack lightly or for more potent hits you can pack densely. Either way, the vapor quality will be top notch for the majority of the session as the conduction heats up your product in the funnel shaped bowl.

Best IQC recommendations?

As always, we recommend the prime temperature of 380 degrees Fahrenheit. As a session comes to an end, the boost function can help you get the most out of what remains in the ceramic bowl without burning anything. For beginners, they will most likely enjoy the pre-set option two for an enjoyable hit each and every time. As well, we can also recommend the purchase of DaVinci Dosage Pods Refill Kit to speed up packing on the go and make the whole process cleaner as well. An additional battery purchase will help you to keep your device going on the fly as well.

Pair these tips with either a 10mm Vape Bubbler or the 10mm Curved Cooler for a very smooth and enjoyable experience.

For beginners that are used to lighter sessions, they may find the use of DaVinci glass spacers help while packing in the .5-gram oven. They can reduce the size down to .3, and make it so that they can use as little product as they’d like while still getting a good vapor quality.  A DaVinci vape carrying case can also help keep everything you would need for a session in one convenient spot.

Is the IQC easy to clean?

Even with a ceramic bowl, it is always recommended to clean the bowl immediately after each. This helps to prevent any sort of buildup that would have a negative effect on vapor quality. From time to time, the rest of the parts should be cleaned with cleaning sticks and cleaning wipes. Make sure you do this process with the vape upside down, so that no debris is pushed further into the device by accident.  For any annoying debris that won’t come off with the brush, the included metal pick will help you out.

DaVinci IQC Criticism

The included silicon mouthpiece is a slight downgrade from the metallic one included on the IQ2. This can be upgraded back to metal, but we feel it should have come equipped with one. The silicon is more prone to buildups in the air holes and can’t be soaked in an alcohol solution to help with cleaning. It does have it’s benefits though, as its antimicrobial material can be shared without having to worry about bacteria. It also warms slower for anyone that might be worried about mouthpiece heat.

Who is the DaVinci IQC vaporizer best for?

The DaVinci is a great purchase for anyone looking for a reliable and portable dual-use vaporizer with great vapor quality. The battery life and charging time are both very competitive for the price range and the app is very immersive. These features plus the efficiency and reliability of the vape are great attributes to the IQC. If you are looking for a vaping experience that gives the user full control of their session, then this vaporizer is perfect for you. We hope you enjoyed the IQC review!
