The DaVinci MIQRO is a tiny portable herb vaporizer that offers the signature DaVinci great tasting vapour.
The DaVinci MIQRO is the smaller and younger sibling to the DaVinci IQ which was already a pretty compact vaporizer. DaVinci have ironed out many of the issues that I had with the IQ but thankfully they kept several of its redeeming features; such as the gorgeous looks and wonderful vapour quality.
DaVinci MIQRO User Friendliness
The MIQRO is very easy to use, thanks to DaVinci’s Smart Path technology.
The MIQRO loads from the bottom. The entrance is smooth, clean and provides the perfect funnel to ensure that all your ground herb finds its way into the heating chamber. You can easily scoop it off the palm of your hand. I’m surprised that other brands out there don’t integrate this kind of design.
– Setting Temperature
The default setting for the MIQRO is to use the predefined Smart Paths. These are a range of temperatures that rise over the duration of your session. There are four paths in total and you select it using the up and down buttons on the side. It’s really simple.
If you wish you can control the temperature directly to the exact degree. However, the display is so small it only displays one number at a time. You have to concentrate as the numbers flash by to see what the actual temperature is. Luckily, for a casual vape such as this you’ll probably stick to the Smart Path system.
– Ease of Use
The MIQRO is easy to load and easy to select the temperature. It starts to heat as soon as you turn it on. I can’t think of a more simple way to operate a vape – top marks to DaVinci for nailing this experience so well.
DaVinci MIQRO Performance
You may be concerned that such a small device does not perform so well. It performs great but not for very long. Such a small size means that the battery is tiny. This means that you’ll need to recharge more often. For casual users – or people for whom this is a second vape – this should not be a major problem.
– Heating time
Despite the small battery the MIQRO does not take so long to heat up. It’s not instant but it’s not frustratingly slow. They include haptic feedback which gives you a handy buzz to let you know when it is ready to go so you’re not forced to stare at it whilst it heats. On the topic of heat – it’s worth noting that this unit can get quite hot to the touch. I highly recommend picking up a DaVinci MIQRO Glove that will keep it less hot to handle. If you opt for the explorer pack you get a glove and a much needed extra battery.
– Vapour Quality
The excellent vapour quality of the IQ remains in the MIQRO. You may lack quantity of hits due to a smaller battery but you definitely do not lack quality of those draws.
DaVinci MIQRO Build Quality
Build quality is excellent. It has the same gorgeous finish as the IQ but tidies up a lot of the fiddly design issues. No more fiddly puzzle in putting it back together after cleaning or opening up. It’s as solid as it is beautiful.
DaVinci MIQRO Maintenance and Cleaning
The battery can be replaced adding to the longevity of this vaporizer. You may want to pick up a second battery to avoid it running out on you. Kudos to DaVinci for keeping the ability to swap out the battery. Everything that can be removed can be soaked in alcohol for easy cleaning. Even the zirconium air path can be removed thanks to a handy concealed poker within the device.
DaVinci MIQRO Value For Money
At €159 the MIQRO sits at quite a sweet price point. It’s a little more than the entry level vapes but offers premium vape quality. It’s the perfect price for a Christmas or Valentines gift for a loved one who likes to micro dose their herb. If you opt for their explorer pack you get a second battery and glove and a few other useful items.
Who Is It Good For?
The DaVinci MIQRO is the perfect size to drop in your pocket or handbag before heading out with friends. It’ll give you a little something to spice up your evening or take the edge off your day. To get an idea of who this vape is best for the clue lies in the name – MIQRO – this is the perfect portable vape for those who like to micro dose their herbs. It could also be a great buy for an experienced vape enthusiast as a second vape for times when they fancy a cheeky draw but bringing a larger portable vape is not an option.
