The DaVinci IQ and DaVinci MiQro are from the same family with the IQ being the big brother. The IQ has been around since 2016 and is a preferred choice for many herbal vapers. The MiQro, which was released in Summer of 2018, has some classic features that could give you a customized vaping experience.
The DaVinci IQ Vape is a feature-packed premium dry herb vaporizer, but the MiQro is a mini, ultra-portable version with similar features of the IQ.
What’s the Main Difference Between the DaVinci Miqro and the DaVinci IQ?
Both vaporizers have the same features. The main differences are the size, battery life, and maintenance. Any time, any day the DaVinci MiQro Vape would beat the IQ for portability. Despite featuring an extended mouthpiece, the MiQro can fit into any pocket without a bulge. The MiQro is actually 31% smaller than the IQ. It will be a lot easier to clean and maintain than the IQ just as the producers want it.
What’s Still the Same
Just like the IQ, the MiQro is compatible with only dry herbs. Both vaporizers also feature Smart Path technology. This tech helps to gradually increase the temperature as you vape, allowing you to explore different heating levels. For efficient heat distribution both the IQ and the MiQro feature a zirconium pearl chamber and conduction heating systems.
The IQ has a smartphone app - the DaVinci app, which is available on Google Play store and Apple App Store. So it can actually pair both Android and iPhone. You can navigate through the settings, keeping a close tab on the overall performance of the vaporizer with a few clicks on your phone. Looking at the reviews, it seems like the app is not so useful as it sounds good. But this does not mean that you must run the app to use the IQ. The app is just a bonus feature.
The MiQro is designed for a more customized experience. It comes with a few special features that are lacking in the IQ such as the shrinkable chamber which can be adjusted to about 50% to conserve your herbs.
The two vaporizers maintain the same shape. Both are made out of anodized aluminum which allows an ergonomic, elegant, and lightweight design. Even though the MiQro can be gripped much easier, they both fit into your palm nicely.
The MiQro features 15 LEDs that display the timer, temperature, and heat modes while the IQ uses a 51-Light LED grid display for the same purpose.
When it comes to herbal chambers, it is expected that the IQ would have a larger oven, so the big brother accommodates packing more herbs than the MiQro.
The IQ and the MiQro feature four preset temperature settings ranging from 250°F to 430°F and 300°F to 430°F respectively. They're both very accurate with their heating temps.
The DaVinci IQ has been around for some time now, so its reliability is tested and trusted. Just about all DaVinci vapes are backed up by one of the best services and products. A ten-year warranty is a pretty fair deal given that the only user complaint has been about some careless folks accidentally breaking off the zirconium pearl.
The DaVinci MiQro, on the other hand, is still very new to the market and has features which shows that it could last almost as long as the big brother. A five year warranty is also a fair deal and worth the trial.
Both devices use a replaceable battery and can be charged with a USB cord. The IQ comes with a 18650 Li-Ion battery that can last for about 90 minutes. The MiQro features a 18350 Li-Ion battery that can last up to 60 minutes on heavy use.
The smaller device takes about 1 hour to get to full charge while the big one takes about 2 to 4 hours to charge. Using an external charger can reduce the charge time of the IQ to about 1 to 2 hours.
