Product Review: DaVinci MIQRO Vaporizer
We have a new review!
You might remember that earlier this year I reviewed the DaVinci IQ, a handheld portable vaporizer that I fell madly in love with. Well let’s introduce you to it’s younger sibling that is 31% smaller, but just as powerful!
The DaVinci MIQRO is a mini handheld vaporizer unit clocking in at about 3 inches. Like the IQ it features a zirconium ceramic vapor path, but the MIQRO is 31% smaller and it includes an adjustable oven for MIQRO-dosing.

Open the lid and load your product and pack tight before you close it. Press the control button 5 times and your MIQRO will power up into Smart Path mode. Press once to switch through the heating modes or 5 times to turn your device off. You can use the UP/DWN buttons to to change through the Smart Paths or to change the temperature.
The MIQRO features 4 Smart Heating Paths that offer a range of different vaping experiences. You can switch between the Smaprt Paths with the UP/DWN buttons:
SMP1: 350 – 370 SMP2: 370 – 390 SMP3: 390 – 410 SMP4: 410 – 430
Precision Mode heats your bud to a specific temperature, to get there press the Power/Control button to switch through the different modes. You can increase the temperature by pressing the top button or decrease with the bottom button, your device will quickly flas the temperature and vibrate when it’s ready.
For Boost Mode press and hold the control button to activate, holding to stay at the maximum temperature. You can also set your MIQRO to standby when you release the control button, this will cool your device down to conserve your bud and battery life, press any button to resume your sesh or wait 2 mins and your device will shut down.
There’s also a Stealth Mode where you can dim the lights on your MIQRO, to do this click the control button and the down button, to go back to full brightness just press the control button and up button.
To check on the life of your MIQRO press the up and down buttons to see how much battery life you have left. Your device will vibrate when there’s 10% life left. You can charge your battery while it’s still in your device via USB and you can also use it at the same time. It should take about 90 minutes to charge. There’s also the extra battery that you can charge via an external charger and that should take anywhere from 60 – 120 minutes.
As with the previous vaporizer I got from DaVinci, the packaging was amazing. It came in a smaller wooden crate than before and their name was etched on top, their branding really is top notch!
What I really love about the MIQRO is how easy and portable it is. While its predecessor was already a decent portable handheld vape they took things further and made this one 31% smaller so it really is easy to just stick in your pocket. I can easily hide the vaporizer in my hand for a discreet toke. The unit does get a little hot, but the glove helps keep you from any discomfort.
With a regular handheld vape whatever material you put in there will get heated up, but with the smaller oven size you can opt for a single, smaller session and save some of your bud. Of course you can make it bigger to share with others, but it’s nice to have the option not to waste.
The battery life is a little short, but as long as your backup is charged you can easily get more usage out of it.
I really enjoyed using the MIQRO and I had no doubt since I loved the IQ. Now that I have the pair I have the option of having a vaporizer I can have with me all day, or one for shorter outings.
The MIQRO has the same polished look as the IQ. The anodized aluminum body gives it a luxurious aura to it, mine came in Amethyst. You can get the MIQRO device for $149 which includes the cable, accessory kit and mouthpiece or get the Explorer’s Edition, the kit I was sent with all the bells and whistles for $199.
