Is the DaVinci IQC worth it?

In this DaVinci IQC review, we’ll be going over the fourth model that DaVinci Vaporizers has released in its IQ lineup to see what they’ve done differently.

While it might look the same as the previous model, the DaVinci IQ2, the IQC aims to be a more modern upgrade despite sacrificing some manufacturing quality to bring down the price of the kit.

For its new price point, the IQC has a lot of cool key features that we’ll be sharing. Keep reading as we go over all of the changes and upgrades to the classic DaVinci design, as well as who we think the IQC is best suited for – Let’s get into it.

IQC Vape Key Features

One of the first things that come to mind that makes the IQC unique is the lowered price point compared to the IQ2.

  • The IQC comes in significantly cheaper than the IQ2 model but still keeps most of the design features
  • Compared to the plastic body on units like the Mighty+, the metal exterior is a nice touch on DaVinci vapes that makes them feel premium in the hand.
  • The heat-up time has been significantly reduced to thirty seconds compared to the IQ2’s one minute
  • The lid has been changed to an anti-microbial polymer compared to ceramic

LED User Interface

The IQC uses a bright LED screen that will display your set temperature. You’ll have precise control over the temperature, which you can use the up and down arrows to adjust.

  • There are also four pre-set options, which are aimed at users who want a simpler idea of what kind of temperature they’re on

The bright screen is also quite nice to look at while at home, but it might be an issue out in public for discreetness especially at night since it will get some attention.

Ceramic Conduction Oven

  • The DaVinci IQC vaporizer relies on a 0.5g ceramic conduction oven underneath the bottom side’s chamber lid.

This means the as ceramic glazed oven heats up, it will gradually cook your weed and produce vapor for you to inhale through the mouthpiece.

It’s not the most powerful oven, and because of the large capacity, each session took us about twelve minutes to clear a fully packed bowl during testing.

Conduction ovens often work best with a finely ground and tightly packed bowl, so that the oven’s heat can transfer better to your herb.

A tightly packed bowl prevents empty spaces which can lead to cold zones and inefficient THC extraction

DaVinci IQC Extraction Rating

At the end of a session, your ABV will have a nice dark brown color which indicates a very good THC extraction.

As we said before though, a full clear will take around 10 minutes which won’t be the best for people in a rush or for heavy users. Those people might be better suited with an Arizer Air MAX which has come to be known as a ‘Ripper’ in the vaping community.

The boost function can be activated by holding down the power button during an active session. This will slowly raise the temperature to the maximum for as long as it’s held down & it’s a great way to get all the maximum extraction possible if your herb is starting to produce less vapor.

Can the DaVinci IQC do concentrates?

  • The IQC can reach a max temperature of 430F / 221C, which will be more than enough to hit any of your favorite concentrates.

However, one of the downsides of the cost-cutting efforts on the IQC is that they didn’t include a DaVinci dosing capsule or DaVinci extract cup, so you’ll have to buy these accessories separately.

I wouldn’t recommend using the sandwich method of placing two clumps of herb over a dab, as cleaning it up can be a real hassle cleaning burnt resin out of the IQC oven.

How’s the battery life?

  • You’ll be able to get just over an hour of battery life, which is similar to the IQ2’s performance – This equates to about six to eight sessions on average before needing a recharge.

However, the 18650 battery is both easily accessible and swappable if you run out of juice on the go and want to keep the party going.

When your IQC is charging, you can see the remaining battery to be charged as indicated by what is flashing. When the light has turned fully solid, you’ll know that it is fully charged.

As far as charging goes, the IQ2’s micro-USB port has been upgraded to USB-C charging the IQC, taking the charging time from six down to two hours.

Is the DaVinci IQC easy to use?

Beginners will have no problem learning how to get consistently solid vapor quality.

It’s very easy to figure out how things work on the IQC, especially with the help of the smartphone app.

Between the new soft polymer mouthpieces, ceramic oven, and adjustable chamber compressor, every part is straightforward to use.

Here are some simple commands to help you get started with the IQC vaporizer:

  1. Five clicks of the power button will turn the unit on or off
  2. The up and down arrows will allow you to adjust the temperature
  3. Cycle between Fahrenheit and Celsius can be achieved by pressing down on all three buttons
  4. The current temperature can be displayed by simply clicking the power once during a session.
  5. On the lid, there is an extendable zirconia pearl which you can use to compress smaller packs of weed for when you want to microdose

Is the DaVinci IQC portable?

  • The IQC comes in with some portable specs at just 1.75 inches wide, 3.6 inches tall, 1 inch tall, and only weighing 0.3 pounds.

Because of this, the IQC is one of the smallest portable vaporizers on the market.

You’ll be able to slip it into any pants pocket and bring it out whenever you want for a discreet session. Since the 0.5g chamber is also large, you’ll be able to get a ton of puffs in if you prefer just having a few tokes at a time.

For even more portability, we recommend picking up a Vape Case to help them keep all of your 420 vape accessories in one convenient place.

DaVinci IQC vapor quality

Just like the IQ2, the IQC will produce consistent vapor quality from every puff that you take through the session.

The only real downside in terms of vapor quality would be that the flat mouthpiece will get very hot, which is why we suggest using the raised mouthpiece which is also more comfortable to inhale from. Whether you are taking short puffs or longer inhales, the IQC will work well. For overall better vapor quality, we recommend checking out the AirVape Legacy Pro these days.

DaVinci IQC Tips and Tricks

  • As well, we can also recommend the purchase of DaVinci Dosing Capsules to make chamber reloading and maintenance easier
  • A spare 18650 battery purchase will help you to keep your device going on the go if you’re a heavy user
  • As a bonus, you will now also be able to charge your phone with the IQC vaporizer with the reverse charging feature!
  • After loading the bowl, you can tap down with your finger to make sure that it’s tightly packed

How to use a bubbler with the IQC

Since the raised mouthpiece is a 10mm bong adapter, you can easily pair it with either a 10mm Vape Bubbler or the 10mm Curved Cooler for smoother vapor quality.

  • To swap the flat mouthpiece to the raised mouthpiece, all you’ll need to do is open the top lid, and then push the mouthpiece down before putting the raised mouthpiece in place of it.

By using a bubbler, you’ll be getting an extra layer of water filtration which can help to cool down the vapor that you inhale.

DaVinci IQC Vaporizer App

With the DaVinci Vaporizer App, you’ll be able to pair up with your IQC to play around with some extra customization.

Some of these extra settings and control include:

  • Temperature control + Customizing the pre-sets
  • THC usage graphs
  • Stealth mode
  • Vibration settings
Davinci IQC Mobile Application

Simply download the app and pair via Bluetooth while your IQC is turned on

DaVinci IQ2 vs IQC

When it comes to the upgrades, there are many for possible buyers to consider! The design has been overhauled to an 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.
  • The battery has been significantly upgraded in this model compared to the IQ or the DaVinci IQ2 USB-C charging port to reduce charging time.
  • The IQ2 has a much more inclusive kit but also costs more
  • The IQC does not have an adjustable airflow dial while the IQ2 does

How to clean the DaVinci IQC?

Even with its durable ceramic bowl, we recommend that you clean the bowl immediately after every use to prevent any sort of resin buildup from forming that would eventually decrease your vapor quality or airflow.

  • From time to time, the rest of the IQC including the airpath and mouthpiece 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 like burnt resin that won’t come off with the brush, the kit’s included metal pick will help you out.

DaVinci IQC mouthpiece criticism

  • The included silicone mouthpieces were a slight downgrade from the ceramic ones included on the IQ2.

While both parts are cross-compatible, we feel that the IQC should have come with ceramic.

The silicon is more prone to resin buildups in the air holes and can’t be soaked in an alcohol solution to help with cleaning. It does have its benefits though, as the antimicrobial material helps for sharing and gets slightly less hot than the scorching IQ2 ceramic mouthpiece. Overall though, the rubber mouthpieces just feel cheap compared to most other Cannabis Vaporizers.

DaVinci IQC Review Conclusion

The DaVinci IQC is a great purchase for anyone looking for a reliable and portable dual-use vaporizer with consistent vapor quality.

The battery life and charging time are both very competitive for the price range and the app is very immersive & it’s definitely earned a spot on our list of the Best Portable Vaporizers for Flower.

These features plus the efficiency and reliability of the vape are great attributes of 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 if you don’t mind paying the premium price tag.

We hope you enjoyed our DaVinci IQC review! Feel free to leave any questions or concerns in the comments.

What’s the best temperature for the DaVinci IQC?

We recommend the mid-range temperature of 380 degrees Fahrenheit which will give you the best combination of flavor and cloud production.

Beginners will most likely enjoy the pre-set option two for an enjoyable hit every time.

How to microdose with the DaVinci IQC?

For beginners that are used to lighter sessions, you might like using DaVinci glass spacers. These can reduce the bowl size down to 0.3g to use as less flower but still get good vapor quality.

Why is my DaVinci IQC not charging?

If you haven’t used your DaVinci IQC in a while, it may require extra time charging before it comes responsive again.

Does the DaVinci IQC have pass through charging?

Yes, you’ll be able to use the DaVinci IQC after 20 minutes of charging.

How do I know the battery level on my IQC?

The battery charge level will display when you first turn the IQC on, or you can check by pressing the up and down arrows at the same time.
