    It's best just to dial in the temp and enjoy the flavor of the flowers!!!

    I only used the app.to change my smart paths. It crashed a few times but in the end I changed them to the following in celsius
    175-185
    180-190
    190-200
    200-210
    And all within 6 minutes
    After that uninstalled and done
    You give up privacy by using it.
    You can do all without the app except change and tailor your smart paths.
    Everything else can be done on the IQ.

    Hi Tiny88, I did have the team look into this. What we ran into was that we had to ship the spacers in a box instead of an envelope, and this is what caused the price to be high. They kept cracking, because we all know how careful postal workers are with stuff.

    However, I made them lower the pricing on that particular accessory down to $7. We are actually charging less than it it costs us to ship them at this point...not to mention that international shipping rates are much higher anyways.

    Thanx for you response, I am planning to pick them up in late Nov when I make another trip to the US. I will then be able to have them send within the US to keep the shipping cost to a minimum.

    How do you know how charged the battery is? Or when it’s fully charged? Nothing in the manual explains this

    I also can't log into the app despite being able to log into their site.

    Not a great start...

    You're lowered the cost of shipping but raised the spacers $1.00
    It's best to buy a Nitecore D2 battery charger and not charge the battery in the unit.

    So this thing gets pretty damn hot to the touch, huh? Almost hard to hold after a smart path 3 cycle. Also makes an odd like digital noise when I am close to it.

    Yeah, got mine today and exactly the same observations. This thing gets really hot to hold and press your lips against, uncomfortably so. And I have no idea if the battery is fully charged or not, but unit keeps buzzing and saying only one bar left...annoying...really annoying...

    Use the 10mm mouthpiece and buy a lower amperage battery to resolve heating issue.

    Buzzing is normal
    Best tip i can give is use it for 3 minutes at a time, then let it cool

    Thanks.

    Already using the 10mm and will consider getting another battery but my first instinct is to exercise my consumer rights and return the unit. The key will be whether the battery indicator works or not. Leaving the unit on charge for extended period to see if things operate correctly.

    This thing costs top dollar and hits a lot of targets but overheating and battery indicator are not things I can live with.

    The buzz is irritating as well. But I can live with that!

    For me, the battery indicator is not that great on any vape I've owned. On the vapes where I can remove the battery to charge, the nightcore always seems to indicate a bit more than I'd expect left based on the indicator. The IQ, with all its bells and whistles, is no better.

    As to the "overheating", it is a hot vape. I've heard using lower amp batteries will help with that, but I've not found that to be true to any marked extent.

    I'm not sure either reason is a defect in the product that gives full right to return to davinci. (If another seller, your remedies are there.) If you do have rights to return under the seller's return policy, I'd bet your unit is operating pretty much as most of them would without defect, so would return without trying too much else.

    You check battery by pressing both up/down button together. I use the flat mp at the beginning, and then switch to 10mm after it gets too hot for my lips. it's never to hot for my hands, but I vape at low temps, plus I do keep a black "Broccoli" type rubber band on my IQ. Also holding it sideways helps....

    I heard from other fc members that using a lower amp battery helps with the hot vape issue; using a 18650 3500mah vs a 3600mah.
