    Good choice, have you noticed a difference between the two? IMO, the Sony VTC6 makes the unit run cooler than the Panasonic NCR provided by Davinci, let me know your opinion.

    The higher amp batteries fix the problem of pre mature low battery alerts on the IQ as well. The higher amp battery's handle the power draw better when the units oven is heating up. You'll notice if you use your 10 amp battery, you will have a low battery alert after your second or third 10 minute session. A higher amp battery won't alarm until the third or fourth 10 minute session.

    DISCLAIMER: I am not a scientist. I'm sure anyone with some basic knowledge of science and/or batteries could find faults here. What I do know is that the variables were the same for all the batteries tested. Make of it what you will.

    I was really hoping for cooler results from the lesser mah rated batteries. From a subjective viewpoint, the VTC6 didn't feel warmer than the others until about the 25 minute mark. I've got plenty of other batteries here I can test, like the VTC4, some samsungs and LGs, but I don't know when I'll get to it. I bought these two for this test since I didn't already have them.

    I also don't know what DaVinci is packing in with the IQ these days...same or different. My IQ is an early model from one of the first runs and has always worked well for me.

    What battery do you think can make the IQ run cooler while still providing plenty of smoke sessions?

    Anyone making 3d printed cases, like a phone case for the davinci iq, i cant find anyone. Someone could make some seriously good money, there is a guy making them for the grasshopper, he is propbably making a killing.

    That would help to make it more comfortable to hold in the hand.

    Exactly, and also keep it from scratching. They could make it with vents, slits, or holes with different designs so to let some heat escape. Different colors would be cool too

    I have no idea...it's not my expertise. I was really hoping we were onto something here with the higher amp batts with a lower mah, but my side by side didn't support it. The stock battery is only 10 amps, so I'm not sure where else we can tweak it from here. Someone who knows more than I could maybe point us in the right direction. I'm happy to acquire and test some more batteries if it makes sense.

    I've even tried a 20A battery (Samsung 25R & LG HG2) and still no luck.

    I was trying to use a mini canister but the ball is in the way...

    anyways.. I've gotten it off and found that using the canister made it a less efficient vape and have since screwed it back on

    it was a little tricky... it's better to hold onto the ball and rotate the vape... you never lose "tension" of the threads biting...

    Does it matter how much sessions per battery you can get when having enough spares? I think after testing a lot af different batteries they al are about the same. Device isn't for abuse sessions. Device should be working and not put away for a minute or 2 then it's heating up excessively. Just hold and use it.

    My spacers are beyond black from multiple sessions per use to the point where my material is charred brown. After I scrape out the holes and soak it in Iso with the rest of the removable parts and wash it off with water, It's good. I guess It's a superficial something where I want it to look as pristine as the day I got it, which it won't, but I clean it and it works, I'll just have to get over my hang up.

    I posted that before I resorted to just putting the pearl into the oven ontop of my material and found that I still got consistent vapor and the unit pretty much works like normal. I was just very afraid of the inevitable happening, which was the post breaking since I already damaged it in the earlies when I kept removing the post and spinning it around (post). It was hanging on by a thread and a small fall done it in and I got scared.

    The only problem I have with the pearl being detached is that I got to remember (Hard to do when high lol) to be extra careful when I dump out the material or go to stir the bowl 'cause often times I'm vaping in a secluded spot (Bush, dark room etc..) where I could lose it easily and would have to risk using a light and advertising my position. I'm just glad my Vape still works, especially since smoking joints with my ulnar nerve aggravation has started to give me this weird heart shock that has me scared to all hell when it happened 8/10 times I burnt.

    I guess this is the reason I should consider getting a companion vape to go along with this incase I knock it out of commission and can't blaze at all.
