DaVinci IQC First Look

We just got the IQC in hand. Here’s what we think after a couple sessions.

We just got the DaVinci IQC vaporizer in hand and ran a couple sessions through it. Expect a full review in the coming weeks, but we know you need some details now! Here’s what we know so far.

Best of both vapes

It’s immediately clear that the IQC is a blend of the IQ and IQ2. The IQC is the size of the IQ2, but with the sandblasted finish of the earlier model. And while the IQC doesn’t have the IQ2’s Air Dial, it does have a stylish logo in its place to fool you. There’s a lot more to the IQC, but we’ll save that for the review.

No Air Dial from the IQ2.

USB-C charging and a new mouthpiece

Something neither of the earlier models had is USB-C charging. The IQC reportedly charges in under two hours now. In what were surely cost-cutting moves, the mouthpieces are now made from antimicrobial polymer instead of ceramic zirconia, and the doors feel like some kind of PEEK material.

Mouthpieces are now made from antimicrobial polymer.

Is this the mainstream IQ?

This could be DaVinci’s most popular IQ yet. The IQC has that distinctive DaVinci vapor, and its design incorporates much that was learned from the first two iterations. From the IQ perspective, it’s full of upgrades. From the IQ2 perspective, it lacks some features. And from your wallet’s perspective, the $229 price point is easier to swallow.
