Within the cannabis vaporiser market, the portable vaporiser sector is experiencing an enormous growth in popularity. Brands are acutely aware of this and as a result there is lively competition among them to produce compact vaporisers, which are growing increasingly smaller over time, and offering even higher performance.
DaVinci is one of the vaporiser brands that haven’t missed the opportunity to come up with new models in this vibrant portable vaporiser market, so today we present their new gem, the DaVinci MIQRO. This ultra compact portable unit with elegant, discreet and functional design can be purchased on its own or bought together with all its accessories in the complete DaVinci MIQRO Explorer Kit.
The MIQRO vaporiser, the new gem from DaVinci
The DaVinci MIQRO is the result of excellent work by DaVinci, fruit of a design process that has led to a 33% reduction in size of one of its flagship products, the DaVinci IQ vaporizer, and all without any decrease in performance, and even increasing it in some cases.
This new DaVinci portable vaporiser has an elegant design and at the same time great simplicity of operation, with all the functions of the vaporiser being configured with just three buttons located on the right hand side of the unit. On the front, 15 LED lights display the configuration, temperature and charge status of the vaporiser’s battery. This sleek and stylish portable vaporiser is available in 5 colours: blue, silver, black, orange and purple.
The DaVinci MIQRO maintains all the quality of materials as its ancestors; the body made from highly resistant anodised aluminum, and the zirconium ceramic that forms the bowl and the ducts through which the vapour passes. The zirconium ceramic airflow system ensures every puff of vapour tastes clean, enabling you to enjoy all the aromatic nuances of your herbs. These details, together with its compact size, distinguish this device from the rest of the portable cannabis vaporizers on the market.
The DaVinci MIQRO measures 3.5cm x 8cm x 2.3cm, with a weight of 100g (33% smaller than the DaVinci IQ). After testing it, we can say without a doubt that the DaVinci MIQRO is a premium portable vaporiser of compact size and discreet design, a truly excellent device that’s ideal for on-the-go use as a pocket vaporiser.
How to use the DaVinci MIQRO portable vaporiser
DaVinci MIQRO heats via conduction: the herb is heated by the heat radiated from the walls of the bowl. An interesting and innovative new feature of the MIQRO compared to the DaVinci IQ is its bowl with adjustable capacity.
The maximum capacity of the bowl is 0.25g, but can be adjusted, reducing the load amount by up to 50% using a ceramic zirconium pearl that easily screws up and down. This adjustable piece regulates the capacity of the bowl, allowing the herbal dose size desired by the consumer, and ensuring that the vapour does not lose quality or flavour.
To inhale the vapour, the DaVinci MIQRO includes two mouthpieces, a very discreet flat mouthpiece, and a conical shaped ceramic mouthpiece, very pleasant and comfortable for vaping. This conical mouthpiece also doubles up as an adaptor for any bubbler or bong with a 10mm female joint, enabling users to filter and cool the vapour with water.
One of the strong points of this small vaporiser is its speed in reaching minimum temperature, getting up to 177ºC in just 10-15 seconds. The temperature settings have different selection modes: Smart Paths, Boost, and Standby.
Smart Paths is a mode with 4 variable temperature programs (from low to high). The gradual increase in temperature provides a comfortable vaping experience, in which all the aroma and flavour of the cannabis can be appreciated. Depending on the use we give to the vaporiser (therapeutic or recreational) we can select one of the 4 temperature settings to vaporise cannabis. The temperature setting ranges are: From 175ºC to 187ºC, from 187ºC to 200ºC, from 200ºC to 210ºC, and from 210ºC to 220ºC.
The two other temperature settings are the Boost Mode, to rapidly raise the temperature from one degree to the next with the push of a button, and the Standby Mode, which is simply a quick cooling of the vaporiser bowl to better preserve the remaining cannabis for your next vape session.
Batteries, autonomy and charging
The DaVinci MIQRO comes with two 18350/900mAh type batteries, one that is fitted in the vaporiser and an additional spare battery. The batteries are interchangeable and each one has an autonomy of about 30-50 minutes, depending on the power settings of the vaporiser.
Due to the small size of the device, DaVinci has also had to reduce the size of the batteries, for this reason the unit is supplied with two interchangeable batteries, managing to maintain a very respectable autonomy (15 to 20 vape sessions of 5 minutes each).
It is highly recommended to have a battery charger for vaporisers to ensure both batteries are always fully charged, although the vaporiser itself has a USB socket for battery charging. Batteries take about 90 minutes to charge.
The device includes two energy-saving modes: the Stealth Mode, which reduces the intensity of the LEDs, achieving lower energy consumption and greater discretion when vaping, while the Auto-Off Mode is activated when the vaporiser is idle for two minutes.
