    Davinci allegedly fixed my IQ. And then sent it back by incredibly cheap shipping. Been in transit for over a week and still not here. And they used such crappy shipping that I can't even track it anymore, the version of UPS they used "handed it off to USPS" and considers it delivered, now I just have to hope USPS eventually gets it to me. And my local USPS loses stuff a lot.

    Between how long it took for them to fix it and how long return shipping is taking, I will have not had a working IQ in over a month. And for me this is medical, NOT for fun.

    That is not the kind of service I expect with a product that cost just short of $300, purchased a couple months ago, and claimed to have an excellent 10 year warranty (the main reason I bought the thing). Never had a vape take this long to be fixed and returned to me. VapeXhale and Arizer are both much faster when servicing a unit and shipping it back. And they included tracking until the vapes were actually delivered to me, not just til they were handed off to a 2nd shipper.

    I 'liked' this but I don't like it. Does feel like they could do better. I'm sorry this has happened. Hope you get some support.

    Just going to sit on the patio with my IQ and enjoy the evening. I'm in Texas and it's too damn hot out during the day. The IQ, by the way, continues to impress as a take anywhere vape. Very easy to live with, I've found it to be the portable I reach for every time I just want to get medicated, not play around stirring after every hit LOL. Pack it, vape it, dump it, refill it...once a week I do a thorough cleaning which takes me about a half hour but that's it. With as much use as it gets...that's not bad.

    The IQ is a great vaporiser but like so many other clients i still find it really too hot, hopefully they'll find a solution to that overheating problem (even if i understand that this is a form-factor issue, and once you heat the chamber at >380 F you can't expect it to be cool on the outside... but neither that hot i'd say...)
    The other problem is really easy to solve: get rid of that gasket on which the savour chamber is resting.
    It's truly impossible to clean and there must be a solution without that gasket, or at least making it removable to access the dirt underneath it.
    I really like the stealthy aspect but it can/must be perfected (and some other slighter things like the buzzing sound and some leds that seem to die after 3 weeks...)
    p.s: sorry if that has already been said too many times, it's my first comment on this great forum ;)

    So I just bought another IQ...
    This time directly from the Davinci website.

    So if there's any issues, the warranty better work.

    I'm in Canada by the way.

    Thanks for the suggestion, i may try it one of these days.
    Talking about the Da Vinci shop online, you should do something about 2 things:
    1- you can't sell the IQ glass spacers for 11.37€ and charge 12.78€ more to send it to Europe. Some clients could really be angry, 14.94$ to send something that weighs around 1 or 2 grams...
    2- When you put those glass fillers in the cart and forget to buy it (or forget to delete it, because 15$ for shipping is outrageous ;) ) you receive an email that says "with the coupon SMILE10" save 10% but here comes the joke: "offer not valid with Da Vinci IQ Vaporizer or IQ Accessories".
    So you end up brewing over that ludicrous shipping price for something that weighs nothing.

    I just wanted to call your attention on those 2 facts because that's not very business-minded (those glass fillers should be in the box when a vaporizer costs more than 200€, just my 2cents ;)

    That's why you order small parts like this directly in Europe (and still pay something for postage):

    //Edit: I just saw... EUR 15,- minimum order. Fucked again...

    oh thank you for that tip! (even if 15€ for that kind of accessory is excessive)
    i know that shop but forgot to look for those glass fillers!
    On ebay i found a lot of sellers but they usually don't send it out of the USA.
    Will definitely add those fillers in my next order on Vaposhop!
    Thanks again ;)

    We have an EU Warehouse which is where European customers can order. We also have authorized vendors who have the products in store. You can locate them here: https://www.davincivaporizer.com/authorized-resellers/ https://www.davincivaporizer.com/store-locator/

    To those interested in the IQ glass spacers i found them on Vapornation at 10.99$.
    I ended up following Dynavaper's tip and bought it from Vaposhop.
    I took the IQ glass spacers+ Mighty's capsules and some O-rings for my Sticky Brick Junior and because of the 50€ limit i had the pretext to buy the Magic Flight grinder too :evil:

    The IQ for little draws, long session on 175-190C (not too hot), like sipping your favorite juice/pop soda.
    (i can already imagine how much the glass spacers will improve that tiny beast)
    The Dynavap for 3/4 rounds: 2-3 good hits, and the first one airy and flavourful.
    (and i can usually end up my IQ bowl with a 2 Dynavap sessions, from the same IQ bowl as i don't like pushing the IQ too hot there's some light brown/greenish that remains)
    Waiting for the E-nano and the Sticky Brick Jr, that should cover all the moods.
    Have fun this week-end (too)!!!

    I also bought the IQ Glove and Glass Spacers with my IQ order since shipping was free over a certain amount.

    IQ Glove reviews say it's too big though.
    Already planning a way to fix it by stuffing something to cushion it...

    Any Glove owners have suggestions?

    It's not too big, it fits ;-). I'd recommend trying it first before modifying it. First time hearing about that. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. Going to discuss with product dev team! Happy Monday.

    Yeah, on your site, a lot of reviews say it slides around on the IQ.

    Took a chance as one of the reviews said they stuffed double sided tape to stop the sliding.

    Though yes, I'll try using it normally when it arrives.
    Should be this week. :)

    I've spent some quality time with my IQ and have a few comments.

    1. My flat mouthpiece doesn't seem to work at all. I have to pull way too hard to get even the slightest of whispers of vapour. I emailed Davinci about this last week but didn't receive a response. The 10mm version works fine, but I'd rather use the flat.

    2. I'd rather the pick be located where you use it most; by the bowl

    3. Why does it cost $10 to ship $10 worth of glass spacers

    4. Compared to the Crafty, the IQ is more nit picky about the pack and draw

    5. I'd really like a pod/capsule system

    6. I don't see the point in the pearl extending. I feel it'd be better fixed

    All that side, I really love this little guy. Build quality is fantastic, I don't feel ripped off by the price at all. Smart Path is great. Boost mode is great. Replaceable battery is great. Just a few little annoyances stop it from being brilliant, for me.

    1- I didn't know there were 2 versions 10mm or flat.
    2- good point, and opening the mouthpiece is always like dismantling the whole thing...
    3- Greed, it's called greed. :goon:
    4- I must admit that i sometimes have difficulty finding the same quality from one pack to another, but i only have it 4 weeks ago.
    5- yeah, that would be neat for the IQ2, i'm using the Mighty's capsules with my Sticky Brick Junior and it's really convenient.
    6- better for cleaning, but it could be something fixed on the magnet door.
    As far as taste is concerned the IQ is very impressive, only big annoyance for me is the over heating (and it could have been 20% cheaper too...)

    1. sorry - I meant the extended vs flat (I referenced the extended as the 10mm adapter)
    2. Yeah that's it, the bloody mouthpiece always manages to come just loose enough so that you have to take that extra buzz killing step to realign it.
    3. got it (the point, and the greed)
    4. Same here. Crafty in comparison is very forgiving.
    5. IQ2 whoa mate let's hope they make something that fits IQ1! I just bought this pup! ha
    6. makes sense
    7. is it strange to converse in bullet point form for more than one response?
