As soon as I opened the box for this limited-edition Carbon IQ2, I could tell I was in for a treat. This definitely looks and feels like something special.
I’ve never seen a carbon fiber vaporizer before. I’ve used other DaVinci vapes and have always appreciated their designs, so this particular model was icing on the cake.
The IQ2 Carbon vape is easily one of the most stunningly beautiful vaporizers I’ve ever reviewed. And it’s not just good looking, it works very well. It’s packed with feature that allow you to really personalize your vaping experience from precise temperature control to the exact degree, airflow control, dosage control, and more.
Each vape includes a carbon fiber keychain engraved with your exclusive model number to match your limited edition vape which is pretty cool.
You can see in the photos below that I received model 23 out of the 1000 models that will ever be produced. This vape is an instant collector’s item for any lover of vaping cannabis.
It’s incredible to think how far we’ve come with vape tech since the early days of vaping out boxy shaped, pencil sharpener-looking vaporizers. All my OG vape enthusiast know what I’m talking about with the classic Vapor Brothers device.
Because this vaporizer is jam-packed with so many features and optional accessories, the Carbon IQ2 can be overwhelming at first.
For this review, I’m looking at the Carbon Fiber collector’s kit, which is the exclusive version of Davinci’s top-sellering IQ2 vape.
I’m testing just a few features at a time. I’ll need to circle to updating this review when I’ve had a fair shot to test Carbon IQ2 to its full potential and all its accessories.
To kick things off, I tested the IQ2 with some delicious dry herb grown locally, here in Los Angeles. I wanted to see how this vape performs at the low end in terms of temp and bowl size.
I packed a small bowl (about 0.2g) and reduced the oven size as much as possible. The heating chamber is adjustable thanks to the built-in “pearl” attached to the oven lid.
Because I care about a smooth toke and big flavor over massive hits, I tested this vape on the lowest vapor path preset. At this setting, the vape will reach around 360-370F by gradually increasing in temperature over an 8-minute session for a smooth and even burn all the way through.
The first few hits were absolutely amazing. The flavor transfer on the IQ2 vape is outstanding given its direct, zirconia air path and ceramic oven. There’s no metals or plastics to tarnish the flavor from my fresh, tasty flower.
With precise temps and an airflow control dial at the bottom of the device, you’ll have to experiment to find your perfect combination.
I found the vapor density desirable with the dial set to just one click before being completely closed off. At this dial setting, the airflow allows maximum flavor paired with the perfect vapor cloud density. It’s nice and light – and super tasty!
When you rotate the dial to let in more air, you’ll sacrifice vapor density in exchange for cooler vapors. But this should be a lot easier on the throat and lungs.
Once you strike your perfect balance of airflow and temp, you’ll be blown away by the vapor quality.
I was excited to use the DaVinci app with the IQ2, but found it to be buggy and more trouble than its worth.
After installing the connect browser and creating an account, I was able to connect to my carbon vape once. Then, after turning it off, I wasn’t able to reconnect again.
Eager to use the device, I said to hell with the app. I’ll circle back to testing the app later.
Fortunately, you don’t need the app to use this device and it works perfectly fine without it. You can access most of its features without the app. The app provides some additional goodies which I’ll dive into when I update this review.
If you’ve used the DaVinci vape app before, please share your experience in the comments below. I want to hear about it.
Next, I’ll be trying out the spill-proof, hydrotube glass attachment. This works as a bubbler to filter and further cool down your vapors. Apparently, it’s also spill-proof.
Then I’ll test out how well the IQ2 vapes extracts using the included dosage pods.
The IQ2 seems it was primarily designed with dry herb vaping in mind. You can easily pack flower into the chamber and get going. But with concentrates, you’ll need to use a few accessories like the dosage pod and cotton pads or a ceramic insert.
In addition to concentrates, these pods can also be used vape dry herb in small amounts. This is a great accessory using the IQ2 for micro-dosing.
While this vape comes with a hefty price tag, it is a stellar, limited edition vaporizer to add to your arsenal. The IQ2 Carbon is unique, its beautiful to look at, and its an absolute pleasure to use.
This probably isn’t the best vape for those just getting into vaping, but if you’ve been around the block and it fits your budget, you’ll want to get your hands on this rare piece of vaporizer technology.
