There are some seriously big names in the world of vaporizers, names that stand out as hallmarks of quality and excellence. Two such names are Pax and DaVinci. Pax have essentially set the standard for portable dry herb vapes. The Pax 1 and 2 each raised the bar for the portable vape market, and clearly you can see that Pax aren’t ones to rest on their laurels.
DaVinci, on the other hand perfected the technique for getting the purest flavour out of your herb. Their flagship vape, the IQ, is a futuristic and sleek vape that lets you enjoy a huge amount of pure, untainted flavour.
However, which is the better of the two. This is the internet, there’s nothing we love more than arbitrary competition for us all to fall out over. So, let’s get into it.
The Pax 2 vaporizer was built upon the innovation and improved upon the stellar design and function that made the Pax a popular favourite among those looking for portability and stealth.
The Pax 2 is 25% smaller and lighter than the Pax. A larger heating oven and higher capacity battery ensures improved efficiency and vaporization capabilities while providing up to 30% more usage time than the original Pax.
The handy magnetic USB charging station makes recharging the Pax 2 much easier, too. Simply attach the USB cord to your computer or wall adapter and place the Pax 2 down on the dock. You know that your Pax 2 is totally charged when all 4 petals on the LED display light up. The Pax 2 has two swappable mouthpieces, with a brand new flat mouthpiece and a raised mouthpiece. Both mouthpieces feature lip-sensing technology that adjusts the unit’s power and temperature when you draw. We made a guide to the two must-have accessories for the Pax 2.
The Da Vinci IQ truly earns its name. It is without a doubt, one of the smartest vapes on the market jam-packed with high tech features that make sure that you get the best flavour and the best vape experience possible. With a grid display of 51 LEDs arrayed into a clear display and a precision temperature control.
The IQ’s chamber is easy to load with herb, make sure to grind your herb first. Doing this exposes more of your herb’s surface area and helps ensure a better vape experience. The ceramic zirconia air path makes sure that the flavour won’t be ruined by any nasty plastic tastes. If you think that the IQ is too large for you then why not try the Davinci Miqro bundle which we reviewed.
The IQ also combines three different functions so you can adjust your vape experience. The first mode: Smart Path Mode allows users to select four different temperature settings which sets the vape to automatically switch to the best temperature for your vape sessions. The second mode: Precision Mode, allows you to fine-tune your heat settings with small adjustments. Finally: Boost Mode is there for when you want to take extra deep hits.
To unlock even more settings you can use the IQ’s Bluetooth connectivity to hook it up to its companion app. With the app you can track your smart path usage and see other important information from your device, the app makes your IQ smarter and more powerful.
