The DaVinci IQC vaporizer is the fourth vaporizer that the company has released in its five years on the market  & as a top industry brand, the IQC is no different than its predecessor’s stylish looks but has improved upon vapor quality. This is a portable dry herb vape that is sure to give users the ultimate experience no matter their experience level. For its price point, It has a lot of great features, is portable, and is compatible with concentrates. 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 commonly asked questions about the vape.

DaVinci IQC Temperature Control

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.

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 also been upgraded to a USB-C charging port to reduce charging time. You can read more about this comparison in our Davinci IQC vs IQ2 Review.

What are the DaVinci 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 but with all of the major quality points you’d expect from a great vaporizer. 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 at just 30 seconds. The lid has been upgraded to be an anti-microbial polymer from the previous metal design, 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.

DaVinci IQC Conduction Oven

The DaVinci IQC vaporizer relies on a conduction-based oven in the chamber. Unlike the Mighty+, this means it is best practice to fully finish the entire session once started. Based on our personal findings, each session will take roughly twelve minutes for a fully packed bowl clear.  Besides the four pre-set temperature settings, vapers can also raise the Fahrenheit to a maximum of 430F / 221C – More than enough to hit any of your favorite concentrates. For better cloud extraction on your dabs though, you might consider picking up a Utillian 5 v3 wax pen.

What is the IQC vape 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!

What’s in the DaVinci IQC 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?

As previously mentioned, between the new soft polymer mouthpiece, the ceramic oven, adjustable dosing zirconia pearl compressor, 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!

Just like the IQ2, the IQC will produce vapor that is easy to hit. 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. The only real downside would be that the flat mouthpiece will get hot just as the metal one would on the IQ2, but you can just swap it out for the raised mouthpiece to help with that issue.

For best results, you’ll want a tightly packed bowl with finely ground cannabis to get the most out of the conduction oven. You can either opt for the full 0.5g bowl by tapping down with your finger, or use less and then adjust the zirconia pearl so that it will firmly compress your dry herb into the chamber. Another thing you should know is that you definitely need to take long and slow inhales to get the best vapor quality. Short sips simply will not work on this vape. If you’re looking for more of a cigar style vaporizer, consider checking out the Flowermate Slick.

Best DaVinci IQC vaporizer Tips and Tricks

As always, we recommend the prime temperature of 380 degrees Fahrenheit which will give you the best combination of flavor and cloud production. As a session comes to an end, the boost function can help you get the most THC extraction 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 IQC battery purchase will help you to keep your device going on the go if you’re a heavy user.

Since the raised mouthpiece is a 10mm male part for bongs, you can pair it with either a 10mm Vape Bubbler or the 10mm Curved Cooler for more smooth vapor quality, or extra session customization.

For beginners that are used to lighter sessions, they may find the use of DaVinci glass spacers which can reduce the bowl size down to 0.3g 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.

How to clean the DaVinci IQC?

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.

Is the DaVinci IQC worth it?

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.
