    I have a Davinci IQ but even after replacing the battery, it doesnt last for more than 3 or 4 sessions and takes a long time to charge.

    So Im looking to get something else for home use - using only flowers. I like portable still because I have a big property and take it with me when Im outside. I havent looked into vapes since I bought my IQ a couple years ago so Im not sure currently what is best out there. Has anyone used a Utlillian 721? I cant find it in the vape subforum here...

    Ive always looked at the Arizer products (solo, air) as solid workhorses for good long sessions. This is what Im looking for and also this:

    - decent battery
    - large oven
    - good clouds
    - fast charge
    - good long sessions
    - decent price (so not storz/bickel)

    Can someone recommend something for me? Thank you

    All the Pro points without the Pricetag is difficult....

    The obvious recommendations for a "Home Portable" would be the Mighty or the Minivap - both great Vapes but also quite expensive.
    The Solo / Air is decent and reliable, great taste, long sessions but for me not the hardest hitting ones.

    You could take a look at the Splinter / Splinter Z (with a big Mod for your useage)
    Another Option could be the Sticky Brick Vapes if you are ok with useing a torch but they are pretty fast and not session vapes.

    Just my :2c: - YMMV

    Arizer Solo II would be my answer to your question.

    Thanks guys. I figured Solo 2 was a solid option. Just didnt know if anything has changed much since I was hanging around this board looking for feedback on my last purchase. Looking at reviews for the ARGO. I think I like it. That or the Solo, we shall see....

    I have got Solo 2 for the same reasons and it is good. But take a look at HealthyRips Fierce too, it is new and promising.

    Fierce over the Solo II. I have both and a half a dozen other vapes. The Solo II is indeed a workhorse. The draw is still a bit restricted and the inserted glass stems aren't ideal for outdoor use. The Solo II also uses a special charger that you'll be pissed if you lose.

    The Fierce has a built-in mouthpiece for times when the glass stems aren't convenient, usb-c charging, and a removable battery with an optional charging dock. Most importantly it has better vapor quality than the Solo II with what feels like more of a hybrid convection experience to me.

    You picked a good time to start shopping.

    If the Fierce is mostly a bigger Fury 2, then I would debate it being better in terms of vapor quality than the Solo II, but we all know that personal taste is not debatable... ;)

    Yeah, it's not like you'd think and I do prefer the vapor quality of my Solo II to my Fury 2, especially with the native mouthpiece.

    I forget what if anything they changed about the heater design and placement but the Fierce isn't just a bigger Fury 2 even though that's exactly what it looks like.

    I mean your main negative point is that the DaVinci battery doesn’t last more than 4 sessions I have a DaVinci iq also I have a replacement battery and a separate charger. So your battery can charge when you use a fresh one. I have a mighty also I would recommend it but it is out of your budget I believe. Your cheapest option is to get another batter for 10 dollars and a charger for 18650 which you can find for like 20 dollars. This is all if you like your iq.

    My solution would be a 'Plenty' With a long Extension Cord! LoL!
    Really, I would suggest the 'Solo II' or the 'Mighty'!
    Great performing Work horses!

    The Haze, Fierce, or Lil'Bud, I would I would recommend first for your purposes-among the vapes batteries I either have or am planning on getting.
    -That said, I also absolutely love the firewood 5, though I find it more finicky for portability, then my earlier model-I would still recommend it though, cannot say enough good about customer service from Marc-are you only considering battery vapes? I think there are a few puking once it would really suit your needs as well.
