The DaVinci MIQRO is the latest device from DaVinci’s lineup. It offers some sweet features despite its small and compact form factor. In its essence, the DaVinci MIQRO is kind of like a small DaVinci IQ because it brings to the table relatively the same features which makes it quite the ideal dry herb vaporizer to have whether you’re roaming at home or when you’re out and about. The DaVinci MIQRO offers a 900mAh battery that’s also removable like the aforementioned IQ. This allows you to take portability to the next level when vaping with the DaVinci MIQRO. The reliable battery supports the DaVinci MIQRO’s precision temperature settings which allows you to enjoy your select dry herb strains almost anywhere you are. The precision temperature control is paired with the DaVinci MIQRO’s ceramic herb chamber and zirconium air path to ensure that the quality of the herbs is translated to the vapors and are faithfully preserved. Some other features unique to the DaVinci MIQRO is the adjustable pearl oven and the smaller LED display feature which kind of makes the DaVinci MIQRO a device that’s more discreet compared to the larger IQ.
However, some of the features the DaVinci MIQRO offers may not fit everybody’s needs. First, the lack of a proper display features may leave others confused when they start vaping with the DaVinci MIQRO when they’re out and about. Some consumers rely heavily on a display screen to keep themselves on the loop of what’s going on their device and some LED lights flashing on and off might not exactly sit well for others. Furthermore, the use of a precise heat setting to vaporize your herbs with the lack of a proper LED screen can also scare some off. Precision temperature control vaporizers are typically the stuff of advanced consumers and it could make beginners and vape novices shy away from the opportunity of using the DaVinci MIQRO. That said, if you find yourself in the same spot, our detailed review is here to help you understand the DaVinci MIQRO more and make a better decision in purchasing your next vaporizer. The DaVinci MIQRO is an affordable option it’s not in any way cheap. So, having enough information behind you before splashing the cash helps. That said, here’s our in-depth review of the DaVinci MIQRO and how it’s like to use this portable dry herb vaporizer on the daily or as an occasional vaporizer. Let’s begin.
Let’s start with the battery. For experienced users, seeing that it can only hold 900mAh of battery capacity means that the DaVinci MIQRO is good for a few short sessions before it demands to be recharged. Typically, dry herb vaporizers using a 900mAh battery will usually last or yield an average of 3 to 5 sessions, which is what we got from the DaVinci MIQRO. However, the duration and the length of your sessions depends on the temperature level you’re running the DaVinci MIQRO on. Say, you’re vaping with a low-temp session, the DaVinci MIQRO will most likely yield an average of 5 sessions in between charges. Should you vape with it using a high setting, then you’re going to have to lower your expectations to about 3 sessions per charge. This allows the DaVinci MIQRO to yield decent sessions for when you’re out and about. For those who consume their favorite herbs for recreational purposes, the DaVinci MIQRO allows them to enjoy sessions of decent duration with significant performance. For those who use it for medical purposes and are microdosing, the DaVinci MIQRO can give them more of those quick and short sessions on-the-go. Overall, the DaVinci MIQRO’s battery capacity is ideal for personal quick hits on the fly and not those long and grinding sessions with friends as it’s not ideal to pass the DaVinci MIQRO around because of its somewhat limited battery life.
Should you need more of what the inclusive battery has to offer, the DaVinci MIQRO allows you to swap the batteries and change them for a fresh new set of batteries. Pretty much like how you change your batteries on your Gameboys to continue on your quest on becoming the very best that no one ever was, all you need to do is to take out the used battery in the DaVinci MIQRO and swap it out with a new one. What this means is that for as long as you have pre-charged batteries to spare, you can literally vape on your favorite botanical plant matter without having to plug the DaVinci MIQRO in a power outlet a single time. So, the DaVinci MIQRO makes for an ideal device you can take with you when you plan to have your sessions in places where there’s other portable dry herb vaporizers dare not go – a place where there’s no power outlet. Just make sure to plan your sessions accordingly and bring with you the necessary number of pre-charged batteries and you’ll be good to go.
While this is a great feature to have, it requires you to shell out more money to enjoy this feature. Not only will you have to but spare 18350 batteries, but it’s also advisable that you invest in a good external battery charger as using the actual DaVinci MIQRO to recharge your spares will take its toll on the device and add to its potential wear and tear. So. If you don’t mind spending a few more dough, the DaVinci MIQRO will make for a perfect on-the-go device.
As we briefly covered above, the DaVinci MIQRO offers precision temperature control allowing you to enjoy sessions to your liking. Compared to other devices that use only preset temperature settings, the DaVinci MIQRO allows you to dial down on your sessions to the smallest detail. The temperature range goes from 350° F to 430° F or 176° C to 222° C. This gives you a decent spread of the temperature level so you can easily select the temperature level that suits you and your botanicals the most. Beginners typically prefer to use vaporizers with preset temperature settings because it’s easier for novices to select a preset temperature level compared to adjusting the temperature setting on your own, especially if it can be adjusted in small increments. The dilemma of most beginners here is that deciding what temperature setting works best with your materials can be a challenge. Especially if you’re new to vaping botanicals and dry herb strains, knowing what temperature level is best for your herbs could prove to be difficult. If you have no idea what you’re doing, you can end up with a half-baked chamber or with burnt weed – and both are not good. That said, the engineers that worked on DaVinci MIQRO equipped it with the same level of customization as the DaVinci IQ allowing it to enjoy preset temperature-like settings with the DaVinci MIQRO Smart Path.
The Smart Path allows DaVinci MIQRO users to select a pre-determined temperature level that starts from a low temperature level and climbs until it reaches the set temperature level. The DaVinci MIQRO offers 4 Smart Path settings with various levels targeting specific effects so beginners can enjoy the DaVinci MIQRO pretty much without having to tinker with the settings a lot. Below are the Smart Path settings:
Smart Path 1: 348°F to 370°F
Smart Path 2: 370°F to 390°F
Smart Path 3: 390°F to 410°F
Smart Path 4: 410°F to 429°F
These Smart Paths are ideal for beginners who want to experience what each temperature level feels like and what active ingredients are released and extracted when exposed to what temperature level. It’s a great way for beginners to be trained and be familiarized with the different effects of various heat settings to their select herbs. Of course, it requires some level of learning curve but it pays off. The DaVinci MIQRO’s Smart Path settings was designed for beginners to experience how it is to vape like a pro. If you’re a beginner who doesn’t mind having to learn a few new tricks, the DaVinci MIQRO could be the best place to start.
As we’ve mentioned above, the DaVinci MIQRO has a few features unique to itself and separates it from other devices offered by the DaVinci brand. One of them is the adjustable oven pearl that lets you adjust the capacity of the herb chamber depending on how much herbs you want to pack and how tight you want to pack the chamber. It’s the key feature that allows the DaVinci MIQRO to function well when microdosing. This prevents too much heat and too much air circulating in the chamber which may result in an uneven burn. The adjustable pearls also work by providing the DaVinci MIQRO with heating from both below (from the heating element) and above (from the pearl) because the adjustable flavor pearls help conduct heat.
Overall, the DaVinci MIQRO makes for a great device to have with you when you’re out and about. Of course, there are compromises like the added budget allotted for buying batteries and an external charger and the slight learning curve but overall, it’s a great device that can keep up with your needs.
