I haven't that problem on the IQ and the IQ2. But many people have stated it has been an issue with IQ. The IQ 2 is much more precise device.

If what you described happened or happens, there is a solid 10 year warranty. They are a very customer friendly company.

does the IQ2 pop open and randomly shut off like the IQ?
Never popped open for me but has shut off out of nowhere when the battery is low serveral times. The battery is not flat (still 1 or 2 bars) and I'll turn it back on and get power again for another few minutes or so then it will randomly shut off again, it must be where the battery is low the voltage doesnt push enough amps through momentarily causing it to turn off. New battery in and it starts working as normal.

@Kid Lightning We noticed the same issues with the IQ battery life, the issue is with the Bluetooth feature not shutting off. With the IQ2 unit, we solved the issue by turning the Bluetooth feature off, when the battery is at 3.5%. This is also a reason as to why the unit will shut down, to protect the battery.

Check the contacts on the battery and the iq. Give them a good clean. My e-cig mod failures were commonly due to dirty terminals or poor electrical contact somewhere in the loop.

Excellent tip Cooper! It is good practice to clean those battery contacts and will help to prevent issues going forward. ;)

my IQ shuts down even with a full charge if I even move it an inch or, what usually happens, when I push down the popped up lid. Just shuts it off lol
 
Randy Lahey,
Hi all,

I own the original IQ and I'm tempted to take advantage of a black Friday deal to 'upgrade' to the IQ2.

However, despite reading numerous reviews online and in this thread I cannot seem to find a definitive answer to my question of how easy it is to clean the IQ2 both in general and when compared to the original model.

In particular the infamous 'satans anus' of the original IQ is such a pain to clean that despite how much I enjoy using the device it often drops out of rotation for a few months once it becomes dirty until I can be bothered setting aside the hours it takes to clean it thoroughly.

I would like to know if there are any cleaning issues with the IQ2 from current users of the device and particularly from those who owned the original.

Cheers

I never owned or handled the original, BUT I will say I hate cleaning in general and I dont find the IQ 2 to be noticeably annoying to clean.

Of course its not nearly as convenient as a stem based vape for cleaning, there are a few more parts to clean here, but if somebody is to get frustrated with cleaning it would be me. I didn't have too much of an issue cleaning it once or twice a week depending on usage.

Trick is to do it just after a session when everything is nice and warm and cooperative. Apparently they made the "satans anus" part much easier to clean compared to the original, but again, can't confirm.

I have a difficulty in removing the flavor chamber. There must be a easier method that I'm not aware of. Either way it's not a deal breaker.

Its been a while since I used it, but mine popped out really easily. Just use the short end of the pick, the bent end, and kinda slide under the chamber lip and just work it back and forth with some pressure. Should pop out relatively easily? If I remember I'll mess with it later tonight and see.

I dont have the best memory by any means, but I think I would start basically with the pick on an angle, work the short end back and forth until its under the lip a bit more, rotate the pick so it was more vertical, and then pull up and out.

Also if you pull the lid of the chamber off first it gives you a little more of a spot to put your finger to kind of pinch the tube if you wanna pull it out that way.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Brian, it's much appreciated.

I think from what you and others have said and from what I can make out of the schematic image in the official video, I'm right in thinking that there is still a gap between the flavour chamber and the top of the oven in the IQ2.

Owners of the original device know what a pain in Satan's ass that area is to deal with so I'd still be interested to hear views from people who have owned both.

Overall most people seem to be suggesting it's not as difficult to clean with the IQ2 but haven't really explained in what way. If it's now as simple as swabbing with an ISO soaked cotton bud then i'm happy enough with that.

I reckon I'll prob end up picking the IQ2 up over the weekend anyway as an early Xmas present to myself.

Cheers

no, it latches much better snd doesn’t come open as easily.

With the IQ2 unit, we solved the issue by turning the Bluetooth feature off, when the battery is at 3.5%. This is also a reason as to why the unit will shut down, to protect the battery.
How do you shut the Bluetooth off? Does this require an app? I’m on iOS
