DaVinci IQ2

I MUST buy a new vape for 4/20 because well, VAS.
I already have the Miqro, will be cool to try out the bigger size. And now that my state is legal, any day now I will be able to go into a dispensary and CHOOSE strains and this will be fun to be able to track dosage.

Question for you fine folks...
For accessories, I am getting the spacers, the glove (I use it on Miqro often) and... do I need anything else? Is the flavor chamber worth getting?
Is the consensus to get the ceramic over glass spacers?
Thanks for any advice.

It comes with the chamber, it's not a flavor chamber anymore, don't add anything to it, no need to buy a spare... And yes stick with the zirconia spacers! Up to you if you want to get spares of the dosing capsules, it only comes with one, I still have not tried mine actually those some people here love them... I don't think there's anything else you'd need?

Hi Jill NYC,
From what I understand from early user reports, the rubber sleeve was NOT updated to properly fit the slightly larger IQ2. I put a thick rubber vape band around mine, mostly to add more grip. Hopefully, they will eventually add an IQ2 glove.

The dosage thing is something I have not bothered with, not sure how accurate it might be. You might enjoy it.

Get the Zirconium spacer set, better then the OG glass ones.

You don’t need an extra flavor chamber, unless you want a backup, or plan to put flavored herbs in it, and want to swap. I have never tried that either, I leave it empty, as it’s main function is too cool the vapor. Being ceramic, it can break or crack if dropped, but it’s pretty tough stuff. I bought a spare extended mouthpiece as I don’t like the flat one, just to have a spare. Same with the ball spacer in the load end, the accessories were fairly priced so I bought a spare ball too.

The base IQ2 unit comes with one white ceramic dosing pod, so you can try it, and buy more if you like them. For me, too much extra work, so I don’t use them.

The most used accessory for me are the Zirconium spacers. If you have the extra cash, their new bubbler works great, useful for IQ2 and Miqro. I own both, so if you have any other questions......

Oops, once again, out posted by “you know who”...

Batteries. Get two or three extra batteries.

Thanks @Shit Snacks , @RustyOldNail and @Surf Monkey - so glad I asked!
okay, so I won’t bother with the glove or flavor chamber.
The dosing caps look cool, but I have dosing caps for several of my vapes and never use them, so probably not worth it.
But extra batteries, I will get. Although I assume the battery life is a lot better than the Miqro (Rhetorical question - it HAS to be better!)

Indeed, a 18650 3000mAh VTC6 will last almost 3x as long as the Miqro 900-1000mAh 18350 batteries. My IQ2 came with the YDL Chinese factory brand, and the specs are very similar to a VTC6, so it’s in my battery rotation too.

Has anyone experienced this:

I had a 5 minute session yesterday, at 380 degrees. Full oven. Got done and thought I turned the unit off. Set it down. 5 minutes later, I notice that I smell a burning smell. Pick up the unit and it is burning hot, very uncomfortable to hold. The control button and up/down arrows were illuminated in a white/pale light. None of the buttons would work to do anything. I couldn’t turn it off and it felt like it was getting hotter. I had to take the battery out to get it to turn off.

Once the unit cooled, I checked the oven. All the herb had turned to black dust. It was fully incinerated. Unlike anything I’ve ever seen In a vape. I cleaned the unit but it still stinks. Not sure that smell will ever leave. Which is a deal killer if so. I really liked this vape, for the flavor. So much so, that I ordered a backup last week. Now, I just don’t know......
This is interesting. Unsure what would have caused it and most importantly glad you brought this to our support team to diagnose. Please DM us to you need any more movement on this, happy to help!

Hi there, thank you for your post. I have been out of town for a few days and will be sending the unit to you on Monday. My ticket number is 146415.

I surely hope you will be sending me a brand new unit. With what happened to this one, I really doubt that the smell is ever coming out of it, which will obviously have a significant negative impact on the flavor. I only had the unit since February 2021 and it might have been used 10 times (probably also cleaned it twice, at least) before this happened. The picture below shows the oven contents after this issue occurred:

OK Davinci_vaporize I've got a question. How come Australians don't get free postage? If that is not bad enough we get ripped off on postage. It would cost me $30us to post a parcel to you but I pay $60 for you to send one to me. When I ask the question about free postage I know that you protect Aussie suppliers but It stops me a customer that has been buying your products off your site from not long after your company started getting explorer deals. So why are Australians being treated different to the rest.

I picked up another IQ2 direct during their 420 sale. This one does not exhibit the low-battery-shutoff-during-heating that we've talked about in this thread and that Davinci reports is expected behavior. With my new one I can have even just 2 lights of battery left and it will still heat up to smart path 4. My other ones would shut off midway and I'd have to turn them on again.

Hello, I am a new member here who experienced almost this exact scenario with my iq2 within 14 days of buying. I had reached out to DaVinci and even sent them the unit to “repair” but it arrived back to me and has ever since started turning itself off intermittently and I never trusted it again. I had thought that this unit turned itself on at one point as well. The interior of the unit has never been the same and does smell and taste bad. The material that had been in it was black coal like powder by the time the battery was removed. I though it was going to explode honestly when this happened but never really felt DaVinci’s customer service took any of this seriously and multiple times denied to exchange the unit. Did you end of having any luck or gathering further info?

I started a “ticket” yesterday. They got back to me today to confirm my address. I suppose that means they are going to send me another unit, although they already had all my contact information. I want to find out why they think this happened. I will report back as soon as I get more feedback.

I had an issue with a small Davinci accessory. No help from the Davinci rep. here. So I tried a Davinci customer service email address, NO RESPONSE. Opened a TICKET, on their website.....

..... same response you got, “can you confirm your address”, which I did. NOTHING after that. I responded to that a week later, just asking if they received my response, and was there any resolution? So far, NOTHING....
So, I wouldn’t assume you are getting any help, let alone a replacement.

I identified the issue to them via a “ticket’ on 4/11. I wasn‘t able to ship the unit until last week. They acknowledged receipt on Friday. I haven’t heard anything else since then. Prior to receipt, they said they had submitted a “request” for shipping me a new unit but I have heard nothing more about that. I have made it clear that I am not expecting to receive the old unit back. As far as I am concerned, it is fouled and ruined. I do not believe the stank will ever come out and that is a non starter. Frankly, I am very surprised that they have not already shipped a new unit to me. I sent them the picture of the blackened material and the situation should be clear. The unit was purchased in February.

Shocked that they would be capable of doing this, I have to vape a bowl like 4x on max (430) to get it fully brown.

I don’t know what the temp was but it sure seemed to be far in excess of 430. Whatever it was, it didn’t register on the display. The unit was basically too hot to handle and seemed to be getting hotter until I got the battery out.

Davinci told me yesterday that a new unit has been shipped to me. So, that’s good.
