    If you heat up the DV you should be able to get it off. Good luck.

    Yup, what she said. Then wipe the threads with ISO for easy future unscrewing pleasure.

    Not to worry, it happens a lot. First off, take it apart hot, much easier. Secondly get in the habit of using some ISO on a q-tip or something to keep the thread areas cleaned up. It's easy and fast if you keep after it.

    Good machines, aren't they? Good luck.

    I was going to answer..but failed to read the rest of the thread...which said the same thing I would. Sorry, now you guys are stuck reading a useless message because it wouldn't let me delete it.

    I entered but where is our personal contest to win. It better not be a tweeter again.

    I used my DV today after weeks of not using it and it is just toooooooooooooooooooo good. It happened to be clean too which made it that much the better. I think it would be my to go vape if the lid was movable and if it didn't get so hot. I think I would like it more then the INH believe it or not. I did put the INH tip so I could put the smoothflow on it. It makes for better cooler hits for me.

    I am leaning very strongly to purchase a Davinci. Are there any serious drawbacks in terms of the vapor production?
    It's this or the Arizer Solo, which, from what I have read on this site, is bulkier than as a portable. I also think the stealth is much better here.
    I still get what I consider incredible product delivery from the Iolite so would not want something lower than that standard wise, you know how it is when something's missing?

    I don't have any drawback as far as vape production. It just all depends on your needs. I prefer different vapes at different times. I enjoyed my DV all morning and the solo now and may or may not switch later who knows.

    the solo is a bit easier to clean and repack, but at the cost of stealthiness. Vapor quality is pretty even imo but i've only used the solo a few times

    Hello Im a Vape Noob my self. Please Read and help me!!!

    My first vaporizer was a Magic Flight Lauch box knock off called the Dragon Lite (http://compare.ebay.com/like/221146914314?var=lv&ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar) it was only $30 and it was a great introduction to the vape world.

    However, I immediately saw the need for temperature control so this (along with the storage compartment, the ability to do oils and herbs and the ability to smoke and charge) was my reason to purchase the Davinci. Ive had mine for about 2 weeks and I like it alot. But I have a few questions/concerns.

    MY REVIEW of the Davinci Vaporizer:

    The Battery life isnt that great, I find my self charging it when ever i can to avoid running out of juice. But i need to do the same with my laptop so its not too much of a hassle. I get about 4-5 sessions.

    If you put the herbs directly in the chamber, its hard to empty while saving your ABV. So I decided to grind my herbs using the credit card grinder until its a nice almost-powder. Then i load it in the oil cans. I purchased 4 more cans because i smoke about 5 cans a day, and having preloaded cans help save time. I just pack them all in the morning or the night before. (Im a programmer who works on the go). One problem i found is, I dont get much vapor this way, untill I TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN to allow the oil can to fall on the top chamber forming a seal... the vape is STRONG AS HELL then (375F). However, I am a NOOB, so this may not be the best way to vape with it...Thats why im posting here, i need feedback.

    It smells. The reason I wanted a vaporizer is because my girlfriend kept making me smoke my blunts on the balcony because of the smell, but it January...Very cold!!!! Even though the DV doesnt smell nearly as strong as a blunt, she still complains. I hear that the top chamber (that unscrews) can be used to load Material to help mask the smell... but what material?? Any Tips to help me vape odorless?

    I still love it, it does the job and has all the bells and whistles, but I really need tips on how to use it more efficiently.

    Though im a veteran blunt smoker, champion roller lol...Im new to the idea of oils, paste or butter that you can vape. Do you have any tips on where I can learn about these types of THC products? Id like to make my own?!?


    One thing I can say about vaping is I love that I save on material, I went from Reggie to LOUD packs where 7g for $120 doesnt seem so bad anymore. Because that was an average of $15-$20 a blunt. But now, I can get 50-58 cans out of 7g and be high as hell at the end of each one. Not to menton cooking with your leftover AVB.

    Anyway, Id love to hear what you guys think about this. And please, give me some tips. Better yet start a thread called Davinci tips

    Date rape drug in her tea. She'll pass out and you can vape in peace. Hell, go crazy and watch SportsCenter while you're at it.

    You're welcome.

    Don't invite friends over when you do this.... trust me. :disgust:

    Thanks for coming forth with that. I was in the camp of those who had written this one off due to the reported offgassing and lack of explanation from you. I had even stopped checking the thread and didn't pull the trigger on one for $80. ($80!!! Can you believe that? And that's even after Max's recommendation, which is usually a must have.) So this issue was enough to steer me away, through no fault of your own as we have seen some wierd shit on this here web, and an airpath is a precious thing that is to be inspected, protectd and cherished!

    How I felt about your silence on this issue didn't match everything I inferred from your presence on here as one of the good guys. So thank you for clearing all that up. I find your next endeavour interesting and will see you over there....

    Regarding mica...please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it goes like this: Yeah, the msds sheet says it's safe, but it can fragment. And while it won't offgas anything, I've seen it kind of crumble in some circumstances and forms. Arizer has weathered the storm after having it in the Extreme vape and even kept it in their Solo...both favorites of mine. They argue that even if it could splinter off, it won't in a static design. (Again, if any of you know I'm wrong, jump on in...I'm feelin good!) So if it's not in the airpath, who cares.

    Try loading it after it heats up. The most smell it makes is while heating and if you load after you will be taking it in instead of the smell leaking out the vents strong.

    Wow, the Ascent looks very interesting. I might need to add that one to the arsenal.

    I've been using my davinci quite a bit recently. It is my go-to vape for going out and about, hiking, etc. The only things I really don't like about it:

    1. Taste is not as good as the solo
    2. It is a royal pain in the ass to load, unload and clean. A real design flaw in my opinion.

    I've no complaints about the vapor production and I love the small size and easy draw.

    First I'd like to say welcome to the Da Vinci thread. I know it's a lot, but there is much wisdom and experience in the previous 68 pages so try to give them a quick once over.

    When using the oil cans, I found that not screwing the upper chamber all the way on,
    leaving a few threads visible works to take up that room.
    [​IMG]

    I found opening the bottom hole up on the can a little bit helps. As described earlier in this thread. Not a lot but enough for just the tapered end of the brush to pass. I first pack the can then put the brush through the middle of the load. [​IMG]
    If you do a sharp draw at first it will lift the can up some to seal and then you can adjust your draw to your desired draw speed.
    A lower temperture may give you a lighter smell in combination with earlier suggestion from Dreamer to pre-heat empty may take care of it.

    Hey I bought a davinci and it never stops charging. Never indicates its fully charged. It dies on me very quick too. I'm only getting about 20minutes of continous use and my temp setting is around 390. I've tried to contact davinci on their homepage contact us tab and a week later no reply. Any help?

    Is it that your bars never stop cycling while it is plugged in? Do you have it switched on while charging right? Have you ran the battery excessively low? When charged my battery shows 4 bars and does not cycle anymore.
    Where did you purchase this?
    You could try calling them 800-336-7224

    Yea it keeps charging. The little icon keeps blinking from one bar to two bars to three to four back to one and then two etc. I didn't buy from them directly I bought it from a head shop. Would that be a problem?
