    I have been looking at the davinci and kept coming across the sonic. Its the same price as the davinc it but looks better. But i havent heard how it preforms. So how is it? Better than the davinci?

    well... worst vape I had in a long time. the plastic smell from within (and the rubber taste from the mouthpiece) is really terrible! still don't know if it is just mine, since there are people who seem to like theirs. my full review is here if you like to read it

    mrweed my DaVinci only had a slight new product smell when I took it out of the box that went away in days it never had a plastic taste nor was there any off gassing, that was only a problem with a few very early units. I recommend the DV often now that you can readily pick one up for $130 or less, good deal IMHO.
    PEACE all.

    mrweed was posting on the Sonic.

    I've had a DV since the model was introduced and it's still the portable I use the most. Battery life isn't what it used to be, and I'll be interested to find out how much they charge to replace it/them, but other than that I've been happy with it. The Sonic is obviously a copy of the DV design, yet they claim that "The Sonic Vaporizer is a revolutionary device". I seriously doubt that it's a better buy than the DV.

    I know he was and should have acknowledged that. My post was more in response to his review on the link he provided. I should have made that clear.

    there is one difference I know about at least and this difference is definitely one of the problems sources: the rubber mouthpiece. i don't think the dv's one is made of (cheap, stinky china) rubber, too

    The consensus is no. It's a ripoff copy.

    When you start an Ask FC thread and get responses, it's a good idea to post some kind of response yourself, before 5-6 days go by. Otherwise we consider the thread to be abandoned and it gets closed and archived.
