Davinci MIQRO Review and How to Use
When it comes to buying and enjoying small vaporizer units, the wide range of choice is staggering, but the Davinci MIQRO is making a big impact. This vaporizer for dry herb is not only well designed but it's also very small; it is the smallest dry herb vaporizer currently on the market.
But how small is small? Well, the Davinci vaporizer will easily fit into the palm of your hand (1.34" W x 3.13" H x 0.91" D). This makes vaping dry herb more discreet when out and about and weighing only 3.5 ounces, it's not a burden to carry around. The unit consists of the vaporizer, the USB cable, the cleaning kit and also the extended mouthpiece. There's also an extra battery, carry case and the addition of a grinder card (technically in the shape of a coin).
How Does it Compare to It's Predecessor? The Davinci IQ
Davinci Vaporizers also makes the excellent Davinci IQ which has been available for two years, and while the new version resembles the older one, the interior is different. The changes include using a different battery and the conduction oven size is much smaller (no surprise there).
The general look of the MIQRO is similar to the larger model along with the LED lights on the front—though not as many as on the IQ. The unit comes with a mouthpiece with a silicon seal to keep things air tight. There's also a flat mouthpiece available. Without taking a measuring tape to the Davinci MIQRO, the company claims it is 33% smaller than the IQ and will slip into any pocket—even with the extended mouthpiece.
How to Use The Davinci MIQRO
- Open the chamber, fill with your choice of herb, then close
- To power-up the MIQRO simply click the power button 5x
- Once powered, use the power button for switching between the Smart Path, precision heating, and Boost modes
- Use the up and down buttons for selecting the Smart Path/temperature modes
- Once the heating of the chamber is completed (roughly 40 seconds), begin inhalation!
There are three buttons on the unit: one is the power button, and the others offer the up and down controls for the smart paths and temperature. The settings make it easy to customize the vaporizing temperature to your preferences, and there's also a standby and boost mode—excellent for increasing the temperature for the last few hits in a vaping session.
There's no doubt that the older IQ is a great vape and delivers nice clouds and smooth flavors. The new, smaller MIQRO version builds on these positives to create a really impressive unit. While some users may encounter some draw resistance, the small unit is sure to impress.
Pros and Cons of The Davinci MIQRO
There are four preset heat settings (called Smart Paths) to choose from on the Davinci MIQRO vaporizer and there is a small rechargeable battery on board to deliver the power to the unit. You also have the ability to disengage the temperature presets and choose your own precise temperature (called Precision Heating mode). The different Smart Path settings are detailed in the chart below.
The temperature control is easy and simple to use and the option of easily removing the rechargeable battery will attract users as well.The battery is around half the size of its larger sibling but should deliver up to 50 minutes of vaping. In reality, we expect this to be much less before the battery needs replacing. That's one of the issues for small vaporizers so you will have to get used to carrying a spare battery or have the USB cable on hand.
The MIQRO takes around 40 seconds to heat up and for a conduction device delivers great tasting vapor. One thing to keep in mind, because the MIQRO's oven is roughly 50% smaller than the IQ, you can probably only pack in 0.25g of herb—we'd recommend a smaller amount for best results (basically just make sure you don't over-pack the chamber).
There's no doubt the MIQRO is a sturdy creation with an anodized aluminum body which should deliver a long useful life, especially if well maintained.
How Small is the MIQRO?
The smaller size of the DaVinci MIQRO oven means it's certainly a personal vaporizer as the unit's chamber will only hold enough herb for one person. Instead of sharing, your fellow vapor enthusiasts should buy their own unit (or be prepared to re-load the chamber for each person)! If you like to be social when vaping, then you're probably better off going with the larger Davinci IQ.
The Davinci MIQRO certainly builds on the sibling's best features but in a smaller, more portable unit and the result is a successful creation—particularly for those who want the best vapor from a small device.
The MIQRO is a premium vaporizer for those who are looking for ultra-portable devices. Currently, this is one of the best small dry herb vaporizers available and it's an excellent step into the world of vaping for novices. This unit is equally well suited for experienced consumers looking for an extremely small vaporizer that delivers an excellent vaping experience.
Essentially, the Davinci MIQRO is a well-designed and well-built miniature model of the tried and true IQ that's been priced to sell. It delivers a nice smooth vapor stream with full flavors. With its stylish and sleek good looks, the MIQRO is certainly a great addition to the vaping world's small vaporizers line-up.
