Davinci IQ Review – 1 year later – How has the IQ held up?

I beat the hell out of my vapes and the Davinci IQ has survived more abuse than almost all of my other dry herb vapes. In this Davinci IQ review video, I follow up on my original IQ review and address how those issues persisted after 12 months of testing. I also go over points of wear and tear on the vape and provide some tips on how to keep the Davinci IQ running smooth.

Where Can I Buy The Davinci IQ?

To avoid counterfeits I recommend buying directly from Davinci. Other authorized resellers are Puffitup and PlanetoftheVapes.

Davinci IQ Review Update

After more than a  year of daily use here are some of the issues I’ve encountered and how the vape has held up:

Cleaning – In my original review I had mentioned a brown discoloration on the bowl. After a year of heavy use this has unfortunately gotten worse. This isn’t an isolated issue either. It’s worth noting that this hasn’t really affected performance, it’s just more of an annoyance.

Point of Failure – This section could be combined under cleaning, but I wanted to highlight this specific part of the vape. Not only is it prone to getting clogged, but it’s also fairly challenging to clean. Over time the reclaim tends to build up and harden at this spot.

Mouthpieces – I’ve unfortunately lost the flat mouthpiece. It was bound to happen as every time I would try to change the battery, remove the flavor chamber, or the stir stick that sucker would pop out. One fateful day it popped out and fell clean into a street vent.

Flavor Chamber – I’ve tried sticking everything I could think of inside the flavor chamber: lavender, herbs, weed. In the end, it was too much effort to clean vs the benefits of flavor enhancement.

LEDs – After a year of heavy use some of the LEDs on my device have unfortunately started to fade out.

  1. I just woundering, after a year, looks like the cleaning is a little bit of issue.

    will you say that pax 3 in this matter is better than the IQ?

  2. At 3:20 in the YouTube video you bring up the impossible to clean area under the gasket and then at 3:38 you’ve added an Oct. 2018 note about how this is now “easy to clean with the new info!” Where is this info? I’d love a good tip on cleaning under the gasket!

  3. Hey I need the link to where you say its easy to clean the ring that gets really dirty and is hard to clean. AKA Satan’s Anus as you say. At around the 3:38 mark theres a popup mentioning how to clean it!

  4. Davinci products are horrible. I paid over 275++ only used a couple of months and went through a horrible experience with warranty. They will not honor their warranty. I recieved back a broken device. I filed a complaint with BBB. They dont care about customers only margins. Im sorry I couldnt inform sooner but I was hoping that they would have made things right which they did not. Please consider my experience before purchasing a product that will not honor warranty but instead will waste your time and money.

  5. Hi Troy!

    A caption in your IQ Revisited video says that cleaning “Satan’s anus” is now easy. I can’t find any info on your web site however. Can you point me in the right direction?

  6. Brooooo you have the best vape reviews. I really want to get the davinci iq mostly for its curb appeal, also I’m tired of every one of pens and pencils getting coated in vape resin so the stir rod, I’m tired of the pax 2(the battery on mine is starting to fade and the pos is seemingly always dead or dying when I want to use it so pass through or vape while charging is nice), and the ability to use it with my rig for when da ladies come by and need a very non harsh option.

    Anyway I’ve been patiently waiting for your 2 year review before I buy >.<. Where it be at broski. Love you man, stay up.
