  • DaVinci IQ Feedback Please!

    @Davinci Vaporizer I just got my Davinci IQ, I used it two times and now it is not working, as soon as I turn it on it turns off. It is not working at all, I have reseted it and it is still not working I am worried, what could I do?
  • DaVinci IQ support

    Davinci IQ apps seems not to be working for many months. My IQ was not heating up after 3 months, contact IQ for warranty on the website. Send my IQ photos with the serial number and proof of purchase. After a day, received an email from IQ that device is valid for warranty.

    Send Davinci a video as requested by them. After a day or two they emailed to send the IQ in with RMA no provided. 2 weeks later it was fixed and ship back to me. No charges at all except for shipping to them.

    Overall, communication with IQ is easy and each communication is kept within a ticket number.
  • DaVinci IQ turns on then straight off

    DaVinci IQ turns on then straight off, all i get is the battery indicator then nothing,
    anybody had this prob
  • DaVinci IQ App: Love it or Leave it ?

    DaVinci says it's developing a new app for the IQ. How many out there have trashed the current version
    and who still uses it ? I'm thinking of trashing it but would like to know of any consequences if I do so.
  • DaVinci IQ Feedback Please!

    Davinci rep: Is the gasket between the flavor chamber and the oven removable? If not mine is covering 2 of the vents at the top of the oven impeding the draw. Please advise. Thanks.

    DaVinci has listed their glass oven spacers on their website. This is their solution for those who feel that the oven capacity is too large for their style of use:

  • DaVinci IQ Feedback Please!

    @davinci, my IQ makes a buzzing noise when I use it, and almost every time I turn it on, it shows 2 battery levels. For example, I just put a NCR18650GA battery, which is the same type shipped with the IQ, into it straight from my batter charger so I know it was full. The IQ showed the full battery symbol, then vibrated and showed a 2 dot battery level. Why does it do this?
  • Davinci IQ Help

    DaVinci is much better via fb messenger for support or email. Vape Critic does a nice review that covers using the device well. Anyone who owns an IQ and runs at a higher heat like I do will be happy to know there is a case coming shortly for it. I have spoken directly with the designer of the IQ. and that case information came straight from him.
  • DaVinci IQ issues

    Davinci products are horrible. I paid over 275++ only used a couple of months and went through a horrible experience with warranty. They will not honor their warranty. I recieved back a broken device. I filed a complaint with BBB. They dont care about customers only margins. Im sorry I couldnt inform sooner but I was hoping that they would have made things right which they did not. Please consider my experience before purchasing a product that will not honor warranty but instead will waste your time and money.
  • DaVinci IQ or Mighty

    I've been a Crafty, Mighty believer since Bud's review and purchase man. The liquid pads I use for my half packs and either of the two while not out being replaced were my daily drivers. If they had a ten year warranty, I'd say the Mighty is better than the IQ. It's just that damn defect rate man. I went through three crafty units and I'm on my third mighty. My warranty is out in March. I think now that I'm using it a whoooole lot less, I won't have to worry about replacing this unit for yeaaaarrss..
    Not having user replaceable batteries is a big deal. When power issues start occurring, whole damn thing needs to be sent in which is annoying. Especially if the vape is your primary. It did open me up to the other vapes that are out there though. Each time I'd send one in, I'd buy a new vape.
    The Mighty and Crafty are pretty damn effortless to use and simply don't clog like the IQ does sometimes to me. Sucking a marble through a straw type nonsense.
    Dosing capsules add to the value of the Storz line for me. No fussing with loading tools, just reload and play. Dosing capsules are maaad cheap and you can preload dozens for ease of use later.
    Mighty is easier to manage for people unfamiliar and you can go much longer without cleaning. I was simply switching out cooling units every month and cleaning them all every four or five months in one shot. Davinci you can't get away with doing that.

    However, the MV1 now has taken over as my daily. I'm getting crazy good consistency right now with crucible bakes and it's just as dark and darker than what the Mighty and IQ puts out as far as AVB. Mighty is a lighter AVB at 410f, Davinci a darker at 430f. MV1 is darker still with speckles of darkness throughout. Extraction is greater. The MV1 has turned into the daily right now, I'm agreeing about the punch. It'll punch you harder initially and much much faster. Figure the lack of real heat up time makes it a quick two to four minute affair and it doesn't smell like the other vapes.I mean the physical body of the unit after a session or couple of pulls, it doesn't f'in reek. My bloodhound narc wifey knows when I vape depending on what's in my pocket. So far this hasn't set her off yet. Being able to get off four quick pulls off of 410-428f with the quickness is something I'm still getting used to. This is a great thing...

    At any rate, I like all of these vapes. If stealth is required, davinci can't be beat, get spacers too. It's damned efficient. If stealth isn't required, Mighty all the way. It does fully heat from all angles so it does feel like it's blowing through the bud a little faster, but the amounts really are what.. .15-.3 tops? You can get a room of people lit with a full .3 mighty. Davinci too, but it's not as free flowing..your getting lit with less overall effort than any of the other vapes with the Mighty. If you want an on demand personal vape that also is damned efficient and kicks ass, can't go wrong with the MV1.

    Mighty > Davinci Group Session

    Davinci > Mighty Stealth

    Davinci > Mighty Features, more vapes need smart paths

    Mighty > DaVinci Ease of draw

    Davinci > Mighty Flavor
  • "DaVinci IQ" search for tips and tricks (rookie)

    Hi guys,

    my davinci has arrived and i had the first session with my davinci, wich is a great vaporizer, but i‘m a idiot and dropped my flavor chamber and it brokes. xD I wrote davinci, and i have to say, the customer service is amazing! They send me directly a new flavor chamber to Germany, for 0,00€. Wow, and they recuest my mail in just 15hours. But i think i will give the Crafty a try. The new 2017 modell have a better battery life, wich is 90min, and i think they developed further this advice. My friend will buy the Davinci too,
    so if anyone have some questions about the Davinci iq vs Crafty, ask me for my experience.
    I think he will get his IQ in November. :)

    So, peace! ;)
  • Davinci IQ mouth piece lid pops open

    Hey guys, first post! Finally decided to comment. I just got the Davinci IQ and I am experiencing a few design flaws as you guys have pointed out. I've found a few peculiariaties I wanted to mention for those who have not purchased an IQ.
    1) The silicon gasket expands after a session, causing the Flavor Chamber to come up a little bit. This causes difficulty removing the battery. All you have to do is push the F.C down gently with one hand and the other gently pushing back the battery door to remove said battery. Make sure it doesn't scratch on the way out.
    2) The top lid sometimes gets difficult to pop back in because of factors like the weak magnet, expanding silicon gasket, among other things. Luckily I just have to push it down a little and it pops right back down.
    3) The Flavor Chamber tends to pop out if you have both lids open and are not paying attention. I've dropped it a few times but it has not broken luckily. There should be something that locks in the F.C.
    4) Sometimes the IQ just turns off while in the middle of a session, with a charged battery using the included external charger. I don't know why it does this sometimes but if it continues I will have to start a Return for Warranty.
    5) IQ does get hot but the Glove works to keep it cool. Should be an included accessory honestly since the Vape without it is not recommended for people who are temperature sensitive. I believe as the consumer we can in a way force Davinci to give it to us included with the vape, I say we write a strong woreded letter!!! (JK) It tends to slip when IQ is hot.
    6) Glass spacers help a lot since the ceramic heater of the IQ consumes a lot compared to other vaporizers like the MFLB or EVO. This is due to the big bowl and having to lightly tamp down your buds to make sure it is fully contacting the conduction ceramic heater. Stirring is necessary for big bowls but not so much with the glass spacers. I bought them from the website to make sure they're really glass; I performed a scratch (with a metal nail cutter) and bite test (with my teeth) to see if it was real glass, it is.
    7) Another flaw I see with the IQ is the short distance between the heating element and battery. I messaged Davinci asking about any worst-case scenario testing (Like running the IQ at 430 degrees Fahrenheit for extended amount of time) but apparently I must speak with a technician. I was afraid of the 18650 battery of overheating and possibly venting (exploding), which should never be heated to the temperature of the IQ. I believe they could have possibly tried to widen the design a few millimeters and see how the temperature of the battery differed with the original design.
    8) In Davinci's website they advertise a battery with full specifications, showing you where the positive and negative sides are, etc. The extra batteries I purchased from Davinci do not show this important information. I don't trust too much the quality of the batteries and had to chat with a representative to get some information on the device. Here are the specs the rep gave me but even he is unsure. Who the hell gives me information then says that his answer is inaccurante (WTF)? He has a afterhour representative, but all this info should be PUBLIC on website or at least ON HAND for every employee. At the end there's some advice for you guys who have units that are very hot.
    Gayle: Capacity: 1200mAh.
    Nominal Voltage: 3.7V.
    Continuous Discharge Current: 7A.
    Max Discharge Current: 10.5A.
    Dimensions: 34.7±0.3mm Length, 18±0.2mm Circumference.
    Operating Discharge Temperature: -10 to 60 Degrees Celsius.
    Standard Charge: 0.2C CC/CV to 4.2V, current ≤ 0.02C cut-off.
    Gayle: This is all I got but of course, I don't want to disclose this as I want to be accurate on the resolution I will be giving
    Gayle: As it could harm your device and you if I made a mistake.
    Gayle: The device must be in constant use while it is on, otherwise it will become very hot. If you have to pause while vaping or set the unit down at all, we recommend putting the unit in standby mode so it ceases to produce vapor. To do this, press and hold the power button so it heats up. You can then take a hit and release the power button so the unit cools back down until you are ready to vape again.

  • DaVinci IQ Feedback Please!

    Hey guys! If you bought a DaVinci IQ please post here and let me know if you like it or not, even if it's brief, and be completely honest.

    I've been getting some rough comments on my review page: https://www.vapecritic.com/davinci-iq/#comments

    If issues are widespread I'll need to address this immediately, but if these are isolated and/or there really is no defect with the vape I want to make sure people don't get the wrong idea.

    I'm definitely aware that DaVinci the company is not doing well right now with service and responsiveness, and I want to make sure that nothing is wrong with the actual vape itself also.

    Like the complaints about it getting too hot, are these units really faulty or do these users maybe not realize that all portable vapes will get pretty warm when used for a while?

    I hope you guys know that I'm always looking out for you and I've never been doing this to make a quick buck so I take all of these comments very seriously.

    Also, I hope you're having a wonderful holiday 8-)

    Thank you for your help!!

  • DaVinci IQ on order

    In my opinion owning the Pax 2 and the IQ, The Pax 2 for whatever reason gives off a noticable odor that lasts around 30 minutes. Not a heavy smell like from a joint but a bit of odor that eventually goes away. With my IQ, theres a barely noticable odor.

    The IQ has taken aim at the Pax vapes and too me its not even close. The main thing going for the Pax has been the best looking ultra portable, with the best warranty, that works very well for it intended purpose. The problem is... Pax hasn't been updating their line as much, too me the Pax 2 or Pax 3 isn't much different than the origional ,,, lets say the origional Davinci to the Davinci Ascent, and then the IQ, all were major upgrades.

    With the IQ< its a HUGE upgrade from an already popular Ascent. Watch Bud's video on vapecritc.com the IQ (in my opinion) is even above the Arizer Vapes, which to me is pretty darned good.

    DAVINCI took aim at the Pax as the best ultraportable, It has beaten Pax in every category. Now the Davinci IQ has a TEN-year warranty as well. It has also beaten Pax at its best suit which is style and being ultra portable. Depends on your fashion, but the IQ, is the coolest looking gadget I have. That says a lot because I am a consumer electronic's geekl.

    Next week the Ghost MV1 comes out and I think that will give mid-size portable's a run for the money. But the Ultra Portables are safe for now.... Its great to say that all of this cutting edge tech coming out in a competitive way, is a consumers dream!~.

  • DaVinci IQ Customer Service Expierence

    Hey I'm sorry to hear about your DaVinci, it's crazy especially when it's rather an expensive, new vape. It's really great to see that they are standing behind their product thou. I'm interested in knowing DaVinci's official stance and reasons for the malfunction. If they've found an area for improvement for the product or maybe this was just an isolated case? So please share all the details. I've been interested in the IQ for sometime now, trying to keep up with how DaVinci handles product issues, conflict/resolutions. Currently there's a host of inferior vaporizers on the market, luckily there's also several potentially good vaporizers along side them, just to be let down by a preventable poor customer service experience when a problem arises. As time moves forward I see a point people will consider investing in these companies such as DaVinci, the perceived customer experience carries a lot of weight, so business practices matter. Please do continue to keep the community informed, thank you in advance!

    Happy With it? How do you say HELL YEAH!! Times 100!!!

    Mark it down. I said, get the IQ while they are still available. Get the Ghost MV1 while you can. These 2 vapes are the best pocketable and portable. The Ghost MV1 has replaced my Extreme Q (My desktop) and replaced the Mighty (Portable). and the IQ has replaced my Pax 3 and Crafty. Great Vapes.

    The Pax really has done so much for the portable vape industry. I respect them for that. They make a great vaporizer. I have one and use it every once in a while. I got bored with it, and needed to look to other vapes and I came across the Davinci IQ. I can't speak of the genius of the IQ without mentioning the Pax which on its own merit is a great vaporizer. The Crafty also a great vaporizer. I just am stating that the IQ is the 2017 pocketable vape of the year and The Ghost MV1 the best portable. Both of these vapes are the shit and it's going to be very difficult for companies to compete with the IQ or the Ghost MV1.

    Simillarly to the Ghost MV1, I did a lot of research. The Vape Critic gave it an excellent rating. The video review was excellent. I was still upset about getting burned on an expensive pocketable. But I needed to move on. And came across the IQ.

    I tell my VapeLife Brothers and Sisters. Get The Ghost MV1 and if you can do a pocketable get the IQ. You will be set for many years. Just like the great vapes that came before it.

    The IQ, obviously took on the Pax Vapes. The IQ didn't reinvent the wheel they crushed it.
    It has a wow effect. I like showing it to people and everytime its a holy shit type of reaction. This factor is the cool factor. Its cooler sleeker and filled with much more features than Pax. The Pax also has super customer service and can be bought in most smoke shops. (Davinci is getting there now).

    ***The IQ matched the Pax 10 year warranty. That is Off The Charts. Unfortunately, if you buy a Pax now, to get the 10-year warranty you have to pay extra.

    ***The battery is incredible. 1 hour - 1 hour and 15 minutes of 390 Degrees (F). Off The Charts.

    ***Micro USB - It should be standard in all vapes. ultra convenient. I don't think I would buy a vape without a Micro USB. Charging options and power packs are endless....

    ***The battery is a replaceable 18650 battery. - Off The Charts.

    ***The unit will work while charging the same time the device is being used. Off The Charts.

    ***The display is state of the art. The buttons light up to show battery connection. The entire device can be operated without the app. The entire unit feels great in my hand. It looks good and feels good.

    ***Thanks to Kakarot I have been using my Davinci with a water tool. The Vape Production is as good as the Crafty or Mighty. Its powerful but the airflow is excellent my vapor is very smooth and temp is excellent.

    ***It's made with a lot of vision and genius. The Ceramic Zirconia is the one the durable ceramic surfaces. They make the entire mouthpiece of the Ceramic Zirconia. It top-notch taste, quality, and feel.

    ***The oven lid is a ceramic zirconia pearl. It retains and reflects the heat from the bottom of the heating chamber. This is what makes this vape the super productive. The entire oven is heated and it's not just on top like many conduction vapes.

    *** The oven is not old-fashioned conduction. I noticed the 4 The top of the oven is a ceramic disk with four holes. Those holes are the top of the air path. With the airflow, it is considered to be a hybrid. I agree because I have used many conduction and many of the convection vapes. It just doesn't feel like conduction. I called the company and they verified that it was a hybrid. I heard it once before but they confirmed it. It is a BIG deal that its a hybrid. The latest in tech.

    *** It has a built-in pick. I love it.

    *** The Flavor chamber. Amazing, I can store 2 more sessions in it. At the same time the flavor chamber is a removable air path tube. So while having a vape session the air path is infusing the stored herbs with flavor and effects from my vape session. I have vaped the flavor chamber storage. And that is an AMAZING experience.

    *** The Accessories. The Vape came out in November and I have been awaiting the accessories. The nectar collector (hand sized water tool) is probably the best accessory for any vape. Kakarot has pictures on his post. Let me tell you that is amazing. Its 70$ so I am not there yet, but I will be. The glass spacers (get them while you can).

    *** With the hybrid heating tech, the boost mode goes straight up in heat and when it reaches let's say 390 Degrees (F) when it hits 390 Degrees (F) I start my draw, it quickly drop's in temp all the way to 100 Degrees (F). This is a very similar experience as on-demand vaping. I love this part, and although not being anywhere near the MV1 in that category it is in the ballpark while being a pocketable vape. (Whew).

    *** This unit is powerful enough to work as well as any vaporizer I have ever used with a water tool. It comes with a 14mm adapter.

    ***Very easy to clean like new every time.

    *** Extremely good tech service and customer care.

    *** It comes with a classy keychain with an extra pick tool built into it. It comes with a ket attachment that stores herbs. It's a cannister and it matches the exact color of my Gunmetal Davinci. (First Class). It comes with a very useful cleaning brush.

    *** I am going out for the day. I pack the oven with a session's worth of herbs. I put 2 sessions into the flavor chambers. The Cannister key chain holds 3 ovens worth. Put an extra 18650 battery I have 5 long sessions with vapor infused herbs. Its an experience not just a vape.



    1. This unit does not work with concentrates. Big Strike.


    Peace Love and Vape
  • DaVinci IQ olive green issues

    That's weird. In our family we have a total of 4 Olive Green Davinci IQs! We beat the hell out of ours too and they just keep puffing along!

    My first Davinci was the Olive Green and I loved it so much I bought 1 for my fiancee and 2 more for my brothers last Hanukkah. I don't like the other colors so everyone got the green. I have the Firefly 2 and the Pax 3 and 2 Mighty's but after the past few months I'm convinced the newer IQ is the best portable vaporizer on the planet. Now it does get hot (especially on IV) and if you're a thin-skinned pansy, well it maybe too hot to hold on IV setting, but put on a glove and keep vaping (the Davinci can take EXTREME heat and COLD). When I took it to Alaska in February, it fired up in -20 degree weather even though the battery was frozen into place. My phone wouldn't turn on, but at least I could get baked. I've also had a group session with it where we used it several times in a row and it got so hot that we were holding it with gloves and legitimately worried about the battery. Remember that stainless steel iPod that they used to make that you could drive over with a tank and it would still be fine? It's like that.

    If it's getting really hot, just clicked it down to II or III or manually adjust your paths you should've been good to go. And it can produce a decent amount of vapor but not to combustion. If your stuff combusts, Davinci will probably replace it for you. We've never had trouble with anything other than the latch on one of them needed a screw tightened a bit.
  • DaVinci IQ issues

    Hey baron23, thanks for the info! I understand what you mean, I’m speaking on behalf of those who do not know about batteries and the importance of battery safety, etc. For example, the batteries you posted have some specs listed; the red wrapped ones from Davinci do not. I believe Davinci should make sure their customers know exactly what kind of batteries they’re buying with all the info pertaining to them. Also I find it strange that Davinci did not include a wallplug! If a wrong plug is used it can be bad for the batteries. I think davinci assumed that everyone has a 5V plug in their home. My guess is that it wouldn’t have fit in the packaging of the small box the IQ comes in. Vape on my friends!
  • DaVinci Update

    Hey guys, thank you all <em>very</em> much for your patience, I truly do appreciate it. I spoke with DaVinci and have some information for you regarding their delays and nonresponsiveness.

    In short, the extremely high demand for the IQ and the sudden influx of outreach from customers caught them off guard, they weren't properly prepared. They still needed time to make some small tweaks to the unit before final production, and they didn't yet have enough people on staff for customer service.

    I want to let you guys know that I'm just as disappointed as you in how this has gone, I know how frustrating it is, but I do feel that they will soon catch up and make this right. They're good guys who are very passionate about the product, and they're really trying their hardest to make things happen as quickly as possible.

    Here are some quotes from my correspondence with DaVinci:

    "Acknowledging the issues from our side, we leaped into action and ramped-up efforts in the manufacturing process. That wasn't as easy as it could have been because there was still a level of quality control that we were not willing to sacrifice just to meet [sudden] demand."

    "A lot of the feedback being received required more time than usual with careful approach and it set us back for a short moment. We are expanding our customer service teams as we speak."

    "Please assure those who are awaiting their devices or need assistance and want their voice to be heard that we will help everyone get to a resolve."

    ----

    What I'd like to do to hold DaVinci accountable is gather a list of those of you who are displeased with their service. If you have been waiting too long for your pre-order, or if you have tried contacting them and haven't received a response, I would like to hear from you.

    Please send me an email at bud(at)vapecritic(dot)com with any and all information you would like to provide about your experience.

    I sincerely appreciate all of your support and patience, seriously! And I will do everything in my power to get you all the service you deserve.

    Stay up!

  • Davinci IQ or Crafty

    I'm a fan of your videos and I like how professional you are. So I've been wanting the Crafty for a bit, and I've seen reviews and even used my friend's Crafty and I really enjoy it. It's easy to use, it can heat oils, and it has good things like you its ability to turn off when it's not being used after about a minute or two, plus it's also great to tell what stages it means like red for warming up, green for go and blue for off. I was also told that the Davinci IQ was another vaporizer to use. After seeing videos on it, I like it with its cool features like the smart paths where you don't need to push something to supercharge it like the Crafty but you can do that already by holding the power button and building up the temperature as said in your video. One of my questions is what which would you recommend a best option to go with, the Crafty or the Davinci IQ, and my other question is how do you know on the Davinci IQ if your drag is long enough to take, is there an indicator or something to show you? Thanks for taking the time to read my thoughts and questions.

    Hi I bought Davinci iq the first problem does not work bluetooth (can not be paired) another problem I have damaged my silicone ring under the aroma chamber. No support for my bluetooth problem. On the internet I have now found a lot of information about the awful support of Davinci. Should I deal with a fix or try another brand? Davinci is 3 months old.

    Your reviews and info are the most helpful place for me to choose my vapes.

    Day 2 with the Davinci IQ. It looks perfect next to my iphone 7 Plus, but so does the FF2. Sleek, Display, Ceramic oven mouthpiece, airplane grade aluminum, The app is amazing and there are lots of ways of customizing my session. It is extremely efficient, It is extremely powerful, Their is zero vape resistance, It is very small and ULTRA portable, Ultra durable, Flavor path very unique technology, the 3 buttons on the side, There is zero vape loss, there is nothing left it completely vaporizes the herbs, very cool that the bottom is magnetized and stands straight up on any metal surface. This vape is made very well.

    My favorite vapes of all time are the Arizers, Flowermate, Magic Flight now have company. I will be using the Davinci IQ as my main "go to" vape. Its the modernization of all the great portable vapes. It takes things to a different norm. The other vapes I love, have been upgraded by the Davinci IQ. I feel like the $275 I spent on it is steep but worth every penny. I think its better than the Crafty / Mighty. I was not a fan before this, but its safe for me to say this is the best Portable Vaporizer in the market as of today. Most importantly, the effect is out of this world. I think that as far as effect is concerned some of the other vapes I mentioned above will give the same outstanding performance, but the Davinici IQ has modernized the great vapes by the way it reaches the effects.

    I am very happy with my investment!


    I would not buy the FF2 for 99 Cents.

    I hope my experience of buying the FF2 will help you. Before I got it, it was everything you can want in a portable vape. I shelled out $329. Its great except for....

    1. It doesn't vaporize my material well. I have to put it in my Arizer to finish it off.
    2. The batteries out of the box are defective and they will be replaced after going through support.
    3. It gets hotter than a hot cup of coffee, from the battery not the oven.
    4. Its not really convection but is only a little bit.
    5. The customer support is horrible.
    6. The mouthpiece is plastic, and midsession gets clogged up its real junk.
    7. The App Sucks.
    8. Its very awkward to hold.
    9. Draw resistance, the mouth piece is odd the entire path until the part where the mouthpiece is weird and I find I am pulling a lot harder and am exhausted trying to meek out a decent output.
    10. The effect is nothing to write home about.

    I would not buy this Vape For 99 Cents.

    You Have Just Been Vaporized By The Vape Master!
  • DaVinci IQ Feedback Please!

    Ah, fuck...here we go again.

    So, just my view but I have no real sympathy for people who write to you and say things like "Because of your review, I spent xxx", "Your review. Bud, made me spend $284", and similar comments that basically blame you and absolve the buyer from any responsibility whatsoever for their purchase decision. We have all bought vapes. We all know to read all available reviews, to look over the tech design info available, and read reviews by other owners if it had been out there long enough, and to judge whether this is a mature product or if we are willing to be early adopters. Yes, reviewers are very influential, need to maintain their credibility, etc, etc.....but a review is just a review. It is one persons impressions and findings on one unit they received. This is particularly true for a pre-release or pre-order item that's being reviewed without a large population of devices in the market place.

    If you bought a Chevy based on a Consumer Reports review and got a lemon, I don't think many people would blame Consumer Reports (although who knows in our modern society where everybody just MUST be a victim as it couldn't never ever be because of their actions and decisions, yeah!?)

    So, fuck people who come on your review site and post things like "You suck". Just my view of it.

    Now, I don't own an IQ but I nonetheless do have something to say (right, Bruce?).

    1. Apparently they have squandered huge amounts of good will by launching this product with enormously inadequate customer service infrastructure in place. Its not just on your review site, Bud, but all over other forums like FC. There is a DaVinci rep coming on to FC to help address people's customer service issues (which is basically that there is no customer service response). Might want to see if they would do that here or on The Vape Critic site. But bottom line is that they fucked up and its not easy to recover customer trust after a CS cock up like this.

    2. You only reviewed the one device that they sent you. Was this a normal pre-order or did they know it was you? I ask because your unit may have been pre-checked for proper function (cherry picked, if you will) if they knew it was a review unit while general production may not have. So, you used it, you liked it, you gave it a good review. I'm sure that this was true for the unit you used. Problem is that apparently not every unit is shipping in this good of condition and doing a review on an early pre-order unit just sort of comes with significant risk that general production units may not be to the same level of quality.

    3. On your site, and other sites, there are a good number of people complaining about very hot units. Others don't find their unit to get hot at all. Either some folks are very sensitive to heat in their hands or, more likely, some of these units are indeed getting very hot.

    4. DaVinci's issues with their website, warranty registration, and the $51 credit that you can't really use effectively (or perhaps at all) at the moment just pisses people off unnecessarily. If they didn't have product and process in place for owners to effectively use this $51 credit, they would have been better off from a customer satisfaction perspective if they never offered it at all.

    5. Almost all reports from owners seem to support this device working well. But some seem to definitely not. Consistency is key and it would not appear that they have this in place completely. QA variance will kill a company and a product's reputation

    6. No instructions or documentation when they launched? Really? If so, that's just too stupid for words. I don't care how "committed" they are as I really don't care about their personal emotional state. But like all potential customers, I do care very much about what they do and if they couldn't recognize the need to have full customer facing docs up and running before first shipments then I'm not sure what I would trust them with.

    7. I have seen, on your site but mostly on others as well, that they are still have fit and finish issues including things like shipping a unit out with a pearl that had an obvious chip taken out of it somewhere along the line and similar issues. QA is NOT an after thought. To be effective it must be built into the culture, product, and processes from the very start. Not at all clear that DaVinci didn't cut corners in order to get xmas shipments out. Just a suspicion but there it is. Again, very hard to recover customer trust when people read about some of the issues being found with individual units.

    P.S.: On consideration and re-reading my post, I thought I need to add an addendum to be very clear that from my reading on this and other sites there are many, many folks who are perfectly happy with their IQ and its performance and quality. Lots of folks out there with good experiences.

    I doubt that this was at all helpful to you but its what I could offer from my travels on the vape related internet.
  • Davinci IQ advice.


    There should be a way to make it a bit more quit I think, but who knows what Davinci thinks :D

    So I don't need to worry about the battery life? My Flowermate did that too but not out of the box.
    I think it's because the heat that makes the indicator less accurate.
    And thank you very much for your Review! I liked the Pax 3 but it's amazing that its possible to change the battery on a small device like the Davinci IQ. Didin't know that there is a vaporizer like the davinci.
  • Rating The Davinci (IQ) Customer Service

    Davinci rep on another forum has been great to me so far. Prompt responses and have gone above and beyond. If/ when I need warranty work , I know this rep will be on top of it.
    Pax never got back to me with a simple question, so Davinci pretty much got the sale cause of quick responses from Davinci rep
  • DaVinci IQ Feedback Please!

    @Willy55
    Nope but I noticed if I put it a bit stronger on the desk the device turns off.

    @T
    So I use my Davinci IQ since march and really don't know what to think about it.

    The size is perfect, they used every space, you can change the battery, flavour chamber, cool led's, many extras in the delivery box.

    To the negatives
    buzzing noise(after a few months it dosen't bother me)
    battery status not accurate
    chamber could be bigger and better

    After a session with my flowermate v5 pro the herb is completly brown but with the davinci I need to mix the herb and smoke again to get everything out of it.

    I'm wating for my new davinci iq because it died without any reason. The display showed me the charging animation all the time and after pressing the power button it showed me the turning on or off animation and changed back to the charging animation.
    Hope that it won't happen again.
  • Davinci IQ mouth piece lid pops open

    Hi Protectenator,
    I tried your solution but it didn't work. A quick way to see if it will work for anyone here is to take the top off the flavor chamber and then put it back inside.....without the top of the flavor chamber the lid still couldn't close. It's a look that Davinci should really sort out as it takes away a lot from the usually sleek good looks.

    I had to change my first Davinci IQ after 4 months when the pearl post broke off. I can't state enough that the pearl is best left alone as I found that once I'd taken it off (for cleaning) it was never quite the same and the actual post wears quite easily. Customer services was a long thing but once I'd been waiting a couple weeks I got in touch with them on Facebook and a rep there sped everything through......I have the feeling I just chanced upon a lax representative initially which may have slowed up the process. Be aware though that you have to hit them up on the Davinci website first.

    Would I recommend it? Yes I would although it has it's quirks which I'm sure many other vapes do as well. But the good by far outweighs the cons and I'd happily buy another.

    Btw seen a couple of people saying their LED were not working or fading.......try a little iso on a brush as that worked for me.
  • DaVinci IQ heats up but no vapor and no impact

    im not disagreeing with you but @420vapezone mentions on the video that this is done by the DaVinci workers (9.05m on the video) to deep clean the device so although is clearly a design flaw (everyone with an IQ have problems with Satans anus) it is a recommended method so if i would go for advice obviously IQ staff have to be N1, Troy can you step in on this and share your thoughts?
    I only did this method once because i think @tripertronic point of view is valid and that was what kept me doing that before, i went to see @PuffItUp teardown of the IQ to see if this space is sealed but i couldn't see if clearly, maybe they could also share their thoughts? https://blog.puffitup.com/2017/08/da-vinci-iq-teardown/ " "Da Vinci did a great job isolating the airpath" "The airpath is properly isolated and easy to clean" easy to clean??? :rofl: :lol: :rofl:
    My method is cleaning every 10 sessions (having more than 1 vape helps here or else i would spend more time cleaning this anus than actually vape... :lol: ) and not let the build up become a huge problem, (6,7 months Troy? dam thats nasty :lol: :rofl: :lol: ) i use cotton tips and pull a bit on the tip and soak with ISO before i go thru the butthole pass the silicone gasket and try to clean the best i can while its hot after a session...i would not take out the flavour chamber its meant to use with it...
    Dont know if this problem was fixed when they launch the Micro but if i knew before i wouldn't get any of these vapes @Davinci Vaporizer and im just being honest here... its time DaVinci to step up and make their own deep clean video... We the people demand it!!!!
    Ok now that i invite all these guys to this shitstorm i will step down and let the big boys talk
    :lol: :rofl: :lol:
    P.S. the airflow suxs, maybe a wider chamber would be one solution...
    Cheers
    :cool:
  • DaVinci IQ support

    ...I passed on the Davinci behind a story a sales person told me...

    ...he said he had the Davinci and at first it was good but it's heat sink or something shorted out and the battery would only last one session...even putting in a new battery would not change this...

    ...Davinci pretty much blew him off, with their best solution being to "plug it in"...

    ...some "10 year warrrenty"...
