    It took longer to full heat tha extra can, usually once i saw green, it was good to go, if i used an oil can i usually let it warm up little longer. I did use my rubber caps. Battery life suffered just because it took longer to heat. Other than that, i dont remember a single negative.. I did like having my non spillable prefilled cans.. I also suggest trying their prefilled eo cans. I saved mine for herb filling.

    @KidFated. Use a syringe or similar with a 75/25 mixture of 70% iso/salt. Remove the draw stem from the DaVinci. Then fill syringe with the solution making sure you've sucked up some salt. Hold the draw stem over the container that you mixed the solution in. Insert the syringe into the end you draw from (non-threaded end.) Spray mixture through draw stem. Repeat as many times as necessary. After it is clean use the syringe to rinse the inside out with fresh warm/hot water. Repeat as needed till smell of iso disappates. Dry threaded end very well. Allow to air dry for a couple of hours before reattaching. Hope this helps. :tup:

    hey guys,

    So I bought a Davinci recently (not the Ascent, but one of these) primarily to use with Hash Oil (I am blessed to live in Colorado where I can now just buy the stuff) but my first experience wasn't as good as I was hoping for.

    I had half a syringe of stuff and put a chunk into the oil canister and heated to 360 F (or so, I don't exactly recall) but what I inhaled not only didn't get me noticeably high, but also tasted pretty nasty (although I might just be spoiled by the Arizer Solo's glass pipe and this might just be "the taste" of a Davinci). After one or two drags, the oil canister seemed to be empty and overall, it wasn't a very satisfying experience.

    I have another syringe that I am sort of hesitant to use until I can figure out how to use it to it's potential. FWIW, I also have an ExtremeQ, an SSV, a MFLB and the aforementioned Arizer Solo - if there is a better way to use this oil, I'm open to suggestions :)

    Thanks in advance,
    Bojanglez

    Try Higher temps 390-405F and put a few drops on cotton in the bowl instead of the oil can.
    Oil on bud or cotton will work in most vapes.

    hello fellow FCners i bought my Davinci about 7 months ago. I must say that this unit is my first vaporizer so I don't really have much experience with what else is out there. But, before buying it i did extensive research including reading these forums. The unit has been great to me and does an exceptional job at sending me to the moon. Now just recently i have begun to have a problem which wasnt there initially. The temperature that i set on the vinci is constantly fluctuating when it reaches that temperature, it goes three degrees up and three degrees down. I was wondering if anyone else has had similar issues and if i should try getting a replacement unit? O and i broke the straw which ive read does tend to happen so If there is any solution to perhaps glueing it back to the metal component that screws on the unit it would be much appreciated if someone could tell me :)

    Take some time and read the thread backwards or use the search for the straw issue. Some have done some self fixes. As far as the temp fluctuation that is perfectly normal as the unit is trying to adjust to the temp you set it at. When you take a hit you are cooling it so it has to get back to temp and over shoots.

    Thanks for the reply. I did a quick search on google before and found and epoxy method but i will look through this thread too. I guess i shouldve mentioned that the tempreature fluctuation happens whether or not i take a hit, so before even my first hit the fluctuation is taking place. Say if i set it to 100 it will go to 101 102 103 and then 100 99 98 97 than 100 again in this type of repeated cycle. This continuously happens through out my session on any temperature. So do u still believe its normal?

    thanks for the reply guys. Right now it does the job when i get the time i am going to think about fixing the nozzle. I bought the unit off ebay the guy said it has warranty. Seemed like a trustable thing because of the guys rating. Anyways i have time on warranty so if something does go wrong ill just send it back.

    Someone elsewhere reported successfully fixing the straw using an epoxy called JB Weld. Read here.

    @buddha_mind Ummm... JB Weld is toxic and putting that into the airpath isn't somthing that I'd recommend. This is the link to download there MSDS. Please review it first before you decide to use it. Personally I would buy a new one. Here is a link to a new draw stem that doesn't cost much more than the JB Weld. Good luck.:tup:

    Thanks for the heads up man. The reason i wanted to fix it is cuz this stem is something that seems like is gonna keep breaking on me even if i buy the new one. cuz i think its just how its built. I think thats why they have replacement ones readily available cuz maybe they know its a problem.

    Modnote: back to back posts merged. Please use the edit feature.

    Guys any idea what davinci puts in the lil cans they sell for the vaporizer. The energy and relax smokable stuff. Ive tried essential oils in the vapo and its just too strong for direct inhalation.

    The mouthpieces dont break if you treat them kindly. My snorkel lasted through thick and thin. They put essential oils into some cotton, their of oils depends on the type of oil can you buy. They are made for this use, i wouldn't recommend making your own mixture with EO's unless you know what you're doing. EO's can be very powerful

    I still have my original. The base lifted once but hasn't again. I will admit this is the last vape in my line up just for a change of pace.

    It smells way to much for my liking, hard to load and unload and gets way to hot. We won't even talk about cleaning.

    Remember I have the original with that stupid lid not the new one that opens more. You can't get jack down there. I have found easier ways to load. I throw the herb anywhere in the top and then just push it in. I just don't like doing it. Over all it was my first vape after the mflb and it didn't do it's job to get me to stop combusting. The INH gets that honor.

    Mine was tha older version also, and we had similar technique for loading, toss it wherever and push it in.. It was my first real vape, and it made me stop combusting. I never went over 387 and i wish i didnt trade it but then again i got a Mflb for it, so i cant complain..
