There is a slight change in the build of the device when you consider DaVinci IQC. The design improvements are so little that you cannot see them when you see both the devices. DaVinci IQ2 had a problem with the lid where a ball was placed under the lid to hold it tight.
This ball did not do the intended work and as a result, the lid loosened. DaVinci IQC has a tighter lid where you will see the least or no amount of vapors escaping. Moreover, the IQC lid is made of antimicrobial material to keep the smoker safe from infection.
DaVinci IQ2 is definitely the best vaporizer when we talk about the vapor quality and material. The company did add the airflow control feature to adjust the amount of air you want flowing through the herbs.
This feature is missing in DaVinci IQC and most people still ask whether this thing makes a difference or not. For all such questions, the simple answer is that the IQC has the same vapor quality because the chamber is made of ceramic and the vapor path is equally insulated. The airflow control is not much of a loss.
IQ2 vs IQC: On-device dosage
DaVinci IQ2 had a very convenient feature where the device showed the dosage analysis. This incredibly unique feature allowed you to simply turn on your device, fill the chamber, draw vapors, and then analyze the strength and concentration of your draws over a time period.
The DaVinci IQC lacks this feature as it focuses on reducing the burden laid upon the battery. It tries to focus on the core feature i.e., producing vapors for an extended period of time.
IQ2 vs IQC: Charging time
Charging time is one of the main reasons why people hated DaVinci IQ2. It took around 6 hours to charge while the battery life was miserable as compared to the time user had to invest while waiting for the device to charge.
Now, since the company has worked its way out of this situation, DaVinci IQC has emerged as a winner in this aspect as the charging time has been reduced to almost 2 hours. This makes the IQC more portable and convenient to use as you need to wait less and vape more.
Another key aspect that DaVinci IQ2 lacked was the battery life. The charging only lasted for an estimated duration of one and a half hours. This duration, if you compare it with other products in the market, might feel fairly competitive.
A more relevant analysis is to compare the battery life with charging time. It took almost one-fourth of the charging time to fully consume the battery.
DaVinci IQC has improved this battery life and it works for 2 hours none stop at average settings. Moreover, the battery life is two-thirds of the charging time which is pretty solid as compared to DaVinci IQ2.
IQ2 vs IQC: Type C charging cable
A very simple yet convenient feature to love about the whole charging system of IQC is the Type C charging cable which allows the device to charge faster than IQ2.
It is less prone to struggle while plugging the cable into the port. IQ2 did not support the reverse charging mechanism which is one of the things to love the IQC model more.
IQ2 vs IQC: Warranty
DaVinci IQ2 had a very secure set of warranty terms where the customer received a 10-year long financial buffer. This long warranty period was evidence of how good the overall build and technology are.
On the contrary, DaVinci IQC has reduced the period to half. This reduction might be seen as a minor change because you still have 5-year security at your disposal, right?
However, this reduction means that the quality of components and system is foregone to achieve better performance, especially the battery life and charging time. It is an indication that the convenience which you have desired was achieved by lowering the quality of components.
We wanted to discuss price at the start of our comparison but it would have been of no use because other features decide the relevance of price. DaVinci IQC has a retail price of $229 which is market competitive. It is hard to find a vaporizer for this good at such a low price.
DaVinci IQ2, however, has an unexpectedly higher price of $279. When you consider the battery life, the price might sound unfair but the quality of the whole system and 10-years long warranty backs the increase.
DaVinci IQC vs IQ2: Which One You Should Buy?
There is no doubt while agreeing on the fact that the DaVinci IQ2 vaporizer is still one of the best vaporizers in the market when you talk about the flavor and quality of vapors but the battery features daunted the utility of this device.
The company did well in overcoming the flaws and introduced a highly efficient DaVinci IQC. This device has a shorter charging time and the battery life is increased.
When deciding a better option among the two, we can confidently opt for DaVinci IQC. The obvious reason behind our suggestion is the battery feature. Though DaVinci IQ2 is still a good choice for those who smoke on weekends.
