    I only get 10 good hits, then even when i raise the temp to 400 it produces low vapor
    I just tried the crafty and it produced much more vapor then the IQ ever has, twice as much
    Is it a good option to try the mighty or crafty for bigger hits?
    Im looking to get stoned not really low temp hits

    First ever post in FC, been lurking for a long time though. I quit smoking tobacco with e-liquid vaping and decided to give this side of vaping a try and I'm glad I did. I have had 2 other portable vapes (Pax 2 and OG Firefly) and then I discovered DaVinci. Absolutely love it, it's small, it performs flawlessly, is efficient, and was worth every penny to me. Never have needed to stir my material, it always comes out a nice, consistent dark brown. That's a big plus for a portable vape. Pack it, vape it, dump it, and start again LOL!

    10 to 15 good hits is a good percentage!
    That number of hits should not be discounted!!

    Really its around 10 max, but none of the hits produced comparable vapor to the crafty, the iq is very minimal in terms of thick smoke
    I did notice that the crafty finished the bowl much faster then the iq

    However I have a Crafty also, and the IQ meets it's vapor production evenly....
    Though the crafty is convection, and the IQ conduction... so they should not be compared.
    Nonetheless, other than the pure convection of the crafty, the IQ tastes and performs equally.

    I thought the crafty is hybrid of conduction/convection like the boundless cfx. I'm glad to hear the iq is on the same level as crafty, that's a big complement for a 100% conduction unit.

    Hey all chiming in and hoping for some help. When the Iq 1st released i had a few problems with my Og unit but Davinci had taken care of my warranty issues and got a new Iq out my way. It has seen some use but is still like new, i do regular cleanings but recently ran into the weirdest issue and it will not stop happening. I am wondering if anyone else has had this is issue or if @Davinci_vaporizer may know what could be causing it. So mid way through a session now my lid will always pop open , it will not stay shut when this happens and its only happening mid way , once everything cools down it closes and is fine. I cleaned and inspected everything and just cannot figure it out. It is like the flavor chamber is starting to raise up causing the top with my Mouthpiece to pop open on its own and has become a problem for me. I even inspect everything after cleaning and it all looks fine. So if anyone at all can help out i'd really appreciate bc i happen to enjoy using this vape and traveling with it and now i cannot .

    Make sure the magnet is in place well, and has not come loose.
    The silicone seal that attaches to the mouthpiece can be problematic and not fully seated (especially right close to the hinge)... so check on that, then very carefully place the mouthpiece assembly back through the hole, and inspect visually and with touch whether the entire gasket is seated well in the "flip top".

    Thank you Vitolo. That was the 1st thing i had done was check all gaskets and seals and even took a flashlight to the flavor chamber area with it out , than cleaned and reassembled. I don't see anything wrong. It could possibly be something to do with that rubber gasket below the flavor chamber between it and the oven as this only happens mid session when in use and the heat starts building up. Than all of a sudden the flavor chamber will pop up causing it to not seat back down fully until everything is cool again.

    I somehow do not think it is the flavor chamber, unless the flavor chamber lid is not pushed in all the way.
    The metal hook for the flavor chamber, sometimes also gets out of position and can block closure.
    My unit has done this once or twice.... but each time I would adjust that black gasket carefully and it fixed it.
    The way I fixed it was to reinstall the mouthpiece assembly, but carefully lay and tuck the gasket in at the inside (end with the little tabs) first... then once in place visually and by touch level and snug, I hold it in place and slowly tuck the rest of the gasket in moving toward the front.
    Locally a couple of friends have had this issue too.
    They used the same fix, and I am sad that the fix wont work for you....
    It is a great little vape.

    I hope you are lucky but for me this is a big problem. I start with one iq and its pearl got broken. The next one with only one week had a crack in oven but cs told me it was only the seam that got dirty. After some months (the vape is 8 months old now) started to have the raised up mouthpiece problem. No explanation except they can fix it( i think silicon gasket gets inflated for something and pushes the flavour chamber). When i was deciding to start my RMA because this the metal parts of the bottom door where the pearl is got degumped because it glue got broken and also the same problem in the other side with the metal part where the flavour chamber sits. I told cs and they said me again the crack its only a dirty seam, the glue degumped it s normal because use (moderate use only 6 months) and that I can use my own glue to fix it (wtf) and that they can fix flavor chamber raised up with no more explanation. For me this is unacceptable and the unit is defective because anything about heating. So I can t trust davinci iq is a healthy unit and now I have a modern and cool paperweight because the only moment I m going to use this is if they change my unit for one new. Of course after saying this cs got dissapeared and no answer to my mail (I don t kmow if the problem is I m in Spain but storz and bickell and ploom changed my mighty and pax with no problems). So I hope you don t start with all my problems because the truth is the vape gives really good vapor but if it has heating problems can be literally a bomb exploding in your hands

    My problem is not as severe but still drives me nuts. When I turn on my Olive IQ (same as IQ) it goes straight to the smart path and I'm looking for my precise temp, which is supposed to happen with the 6th click(5 to turn it on
    then 1 for precise temp) Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    I too agree, recently got the IQ and i also can say it does meet my Craftys vapor production, right now i kinda like my IQ better because the taste is lasting longer

    Hi There! I sent you a PM. Have you checked the flavor chamber cap? Sometimes that has to be screwed in all the way or else it will cause a pop-up. I've had it happen. Once I double check the chamber and screw it down it always does the trick. I know it feels like it's screwed in there but at times it's not and I've had to redo.

    Press and hold all three buttons on the side of the device, while it is on, for about 10 seconds until it vibrates.
    :)

    Now that's what I call good vibes!

    The flavor chamber cap screws in? Was that a change from earlier models? (Or, vice versa.) I don't have my IQ with me, but, I don't recall screwing in or out the cap. I've just hooked the tool though the hole and pulled up to get it off and pushed it down to put it on.

    I'm with OldNewbie on the flavor chamber cap not screwing in unless you guys made a revision but i can assure you that mine is down all the way. After trying several more times to see what the issue may be, it has to do with that rubber piece between the flavor chamber and bowl chamber expanding when it gets hot enough pushing the flavor chamber up and popping my top open. I have cleaned it as best as i can but unfortunately there is not much you can do with the way it was designed to clean inside the area where that rubber gromet is.

    I clean the inside of the flavor chamber with a qtip and Iso.. then run an Iso pipe cleaner through grommet, and wipe down outside exposed tip then wipe dry.

    Me too, but stuff gets pushed to the sides most likely that would not come out unless i literally plugged both ends, filled with iso and shook it and i am not willing to take that chance.

    I tried reading through the pages; there is just too many. Does anyone know if there are aftermarket dry herb or dosing pods for the IQ?

    Is it true that the oil cans from the original unit fit in the IQ and if someone has experience with it does it work effectively? I'm not a fan of the spacers as I like to clean out my vape while it's still warm. For smaller loads I just pack it a bit tighter at the bottom of the chamber. Just looking for a better option.

    With this vape the app actually works for me and I use it to turn on my is at a very low temp while in my pocket and I boost it and take a quick hit while walking to a public restroom. Honestly the boost is my favorite feature and with the app makes stealth hits on public a breeze!

    As always 420 in the 204!

    So i had cleaned it all last night for 1 more go of testing and no luck. I contacted Davinci support and was told it is definitely a known issue. Something to do with moisture getting in or around that gasket causing it to expand. Support has been really nice so far and said to send it in so they can take a look at it.

    At least you know the response of vaporizer concerned persons are being listened to.
    Presence here on FC is paramount for establishing the "human connection" and customer relations.
    I am glad @Davinci_vaporizer has their eye on our concerns.

    I had that same issue happen to me today, after unit got hot, the flavor chamber rose up and pushed the lid open. When pushing down on flavor chamber to ensure it was seated properly it was very spongy feeling. I fashioned a scraper tool out of some old steel shim stock I had and scraped out a huge glob of tar that was not visible from under that rubber seal. No more problems, working great now. Maybe I ought to make more of these, it's just a long thin .020" thick strip of stainless steel 3 inches long by 1/16" wide bent into an "L" shape. The bottom of the "L" extends about 3/16". Stick it down through the hole, sligthly angle it and rotate. Watch the globs come out. There was so much that I had to work a bit to get it all back up through the hole LOL.
