Davinci MIQRO-C: Small but Mighty
This is Nug and Stem for SaveOn Cannabis and today we’re going to be reviewing the powered portable vaporizer Davinci MIQRO-C. This is the third Davinci vape that we’re reviewing for Save On Cannabis, but we’ve used Davinci vapes as far back as the Ascent. Davinci is a very well renowned brand and incredibly well trusted by cannabis aficionados all across the World, and we’re excited to see what this little portable dry herb vaporizer MIQRO-C has to offer.
Unboxing the New MIQRO-C
Davinci’s, well known for their fantastic packaging. It’s never over the top, always incredibly informative. You can see all the details about the product on the package itself. Some cool 2D visualizations of the entire product like shown below.
The orange part of the packaging is an outer sleeve, and then there’s always well trusted, fantastic and sturdy box on the inside that’s going to keep your product safe until it gets to you Davinci really stepped up when it comes to protecting the device and making the unboxing a premium experience.
This is very much the same here. Now when we open it, the first thing we see is the MIQRO C is actually a very, very, very small format vape compared to any of their other products.
We’ll pop it out of its little safe housing. Now I’m very interested to see if it operates in quite a similar fashion because the other Davinci vapes that I’ve used, they all have a rechargeable removable battery that can actually be removed. You can also buy extra rechargeable batteries for the units at Davinci.
Within the MIQRO-C provides a vapor chamber in there and if we look at something like the IQ or IQC (the IQC is actually our favorite go-to vape), there’s a full size battery and a flavor chamber. The flavor chamber in the IQC is a larger compartment to add your own flavorings.
So let’s take a look at the Davinci MIQRO C. When you open the top of the unit under the mouthpiece, there is the rechargeable battery and the vapor chamber. The MIQRO C is unlike the IQC or the IQ Carbon that we recently reviewed, the MIQRO C does not have the option of adding flavor directly into there for their little vapor chamber, but for a much more portable product, that’s a sacrifice that I’m willing to make.
Just a little reminder that we have verified Davinci coupon codes that can save you immediately at checkout when you get the MIQRO C or any other Davinci vape, save with a coupon here.
So let’s get right into it. There’s a little latch on the battery compartment, if this is your first Davinci product, you might struggle with that a little bit. You must push down the little bar that goes across the compartment for the battery to open. On our first usage out of the box, we have to remove the piece of the back sticker they placed on the unit that blocks the battery connector in the compartment.
As I pull the piece blocking the battery connector off, it’s actually going to pull off all of the instructional details on the back of the unit. If this is your first-ever vape, probably worth reading that there’s a little you can see there’s a little QR code that’ll probably take you to their app and let you read some instructional information.
I’m going to turn it off for now and I’m going to turn it upside down. I want to see what the filling chamber looks like. Immediately on opening the filling chamber I see that this is awesome, really cool, since it’s actually a very nice size chamber for the size of vape.
So basically the way all Davinci vapes work is you open the bottom, you fill it, you close it, you turn it on, and it starts to heat on its own.
Davinci MIQRO C – Powering On and Display Comparison with IQ
Let’s power on the MIQRO C and compare its display with the IQ. The device has an LED indicator with four lights on the front, and five buttons to turn it on. Unlike the IQC, which has a large grid, the MIQRO C has only four LED lights. The LED flashing three means that the device is heating up and has 75% of its battery remaining. Check out the video below from our Davinci IQ review to see the larger display in action on the IQ.
See the video below from our Davinci IQ review of the larger display in action on the IQ.
Davinci MIQRO C – Accessories in the Box
Before we test the device, let’s dive into the box and see what else is included. Inside, we find an instructional manual, a customer support contact card, and an awesome set of stickers to rep the brand.
And then three boxes, where you can immediately see how much thought and effort is put into packaging everything professionally. The package also includes a 10mm water tool adapter, similar to the one provided with the IQC. The charging cable is a regular USB to Type-C. Davinci did not provide a wall adapter for the power of the USB cable, which is fair. You can either plug it into another USB outlet or your computer, or purchase a separate wall adapter if needed. Extra batteries for the device are extremely affordable at the Davinci website.
Now this is the 10 millimeter water adapter tool.
We actually prefer using the water adapter as our everyday mouth piece. To us personally, it just feels more sanitary. You’re really only getting a smaller part of the device dirty. If you’re vaping with the standard flat mouthpiece pictured below, you put your mouth on the whole thing where instead with the water adapter we can easily wipe where we used.
The box labeled “Accessories” contains replacement parts for the elements that attach the pearl that pushes the cannabis into the filling chamber at the bottom of the device. It includes Pearl Post & Pearl Gasket, alcohol swabs, and an extra pick tool used to pull the vapor chamber out of the device. The device also has a little storage area for the Pick Tool within the device.
So there is one Pick Tool always right there on the inside of the device, very well designed. I love these. I’m an engineer myself, so I geek out about how well designed these vapes are.
What is the Pearl in the MIQRO C?
The Pearl is designed to increase vapor density by pushing the cannabis down in the chamber. It is adjustable, allowing you to twist the Pearl to increase or decrease the oven chamber volume by 40%. As you twist the Pearl, it increases the height of the ball, making it further down on the Pearl Post. The larger the bowl, the less you will want to twist the Pearl, otherwise, the chamber won’t close. During a session, as it burns down, you can increase the compression by extending the Pearl, which will then compress the cannabis that you put in there. During our session, we kept it in the standard position and filled the chamber up.
Smart Path Modes for the MIQRO C
The MIQRO C has three different “Smart Paths,” which are preset temperature options profiles that gradually increase to the desired temperature over a 5-minute session. They have a few different heating profiles that are very interesting and work well to gradually increase the temperature over the session. If you want to learn more about what temperatures to use for your vape, you can read our article best temperature to vape weed.
Stealth Mode, Battery Status, and Vapor Path
The MIQRO C has a stealth mode, which allows you to operate it without any of the LEDs visible. If you need that extra piece of discretion, this feature is very helpful. This tiny device is already discreet on its own, which makes it attractive to anyone who wants that. It still has a nice-sized bowl, but it definitely would be a discreet product as well.
The battery life is indicated by the LEDs on initial startup, and it will vibrate when there’s only 10% remaining. Our display previously showed 3 dots on startup, indicating 75% battery out of the box.
The Vapor Path cools the vapor as you inhale, but does need cleaning every so often. To clean, you are able to use the pick tool to remove the vapor path. No discussion about it being a flavored chamber, so don’t try to stuff it with any other herbs that you might like. In comparison, you could fill the “Flavor Chamber” of the IQC or the IQ.
First MIQRO C Vape Session
Okay, let’s just get into this. I’ve got some Acapulco Gold, this is some nice stuff and potent stuff. I’ve already got a little bit left in my grinder. We’ll use that as well.
So I find that loading the Davinci is usually incredibly easy. All of the Davinci vapes we have used have been very efficient and will use all of your flower and they’re pretty easy to maintain.
So basically just everything I ground I just drop in the filling chamber. In fact, I think that’s one of their best bowls because all around it, it’s kind of a smooth coating and it kind of pushes everything into the bowl.
With a full bowl, I close it and click 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 times and it tells me, “Hey, I’m on” with some flashing of the display and then that I’ve got three of my four batteries.
So let’s see what smart path we’re in by pressing the control button three times, so we’re in path four. At the fourth Smart Path, we start at 410 Fahrenheit precise temperature and it’s going to end at 430 over a 5 minute session.
It’ll vibrate to let us know that it is up to our starting heat and I’ll time how long it takes to get to this temperature. I can already feel it is definitely warming up the chamber.
I didn’t, but would think that it could be worth running the device once without anything in it just to clear out any of the possible debris or dirt or residual material from manufacturing.
Now the one complaint that I’ve always had about Davinci products is they get hot in your hand. It’s a small little metal device chamber so the heat emanates from the metal. I could already feel that this is getting quite warm. At the time of this review it does not appear they are selling a sleeve yet for the unit, but if they do I eventually would recommend purchasing.
And there we go it vibrated to let me know that it’s ready. It took 1 minute and 25 seconds to get to the beginning heat of the hottest Smart Path technology. Now over five minutes, the session is going to gradually increase the temperature. Let’s go. Cheers.
First Hit Impression
Not bad. Maybe I overpacked it a little bit. The resistance to the pull is great despite the fact that it’s pretty warm in the hand and currently it’s about 410 Fahrenheit.
It is incredibly smooth in the throat. No issues whatsoever. I mean, you can’t complain about that.
Incredibly portable. Heck, you do not need stealth mode. If you want to be stealthy just use your hand to cover the display and it doesn’t look any different than maybe a tobacco vape, but forget that stigma. Just hit it.
I mean with four, five second light pulls it is hitting beautifully.
What can I say?
Go get it. If you want a small little vape, that’s going to be top of the line quality, sleek, and portable…I dunno what else to tell you. I think you should get this. This is fantastic. Another fantastic product by Davinci and at an incredible price point. At only $99 the only thing that can make it better is using a Save On Cannabis verified Davinci coupon to save even more, get a coupon for checkout now by clicking here.
Scoring After a Few Weeks Using the MIQRO C by Davinci
All right, so now that we’ve been using the Davinci MIQRO C for a couple of weeks, we just want to go over some of the Pros and some of the Cons and give an overall score for the product.
- DISCREET AS POSSIBLE: The number one thing that it’s got going for it is, it’s as discreet as it can possibly be as any product can possibly be. And at this price point, it’s going to be your best option if you need to be as stealthy as possible.
- NO COMPROMISE IN SIZE OF BOWL (FILLING CHAMBER): It hits great despite its small size. So really you’re not going to feel like you’re using a smaller product.
- ULTRA EFFICIENT IN BUILT HEATING PATHS: The in built heating paths allow for a very efficient use of flower. We never found that it was leaving our flower unburnt or that any parts were more burnt than others.
- INCREDIBLY WELL DESIGNED: It’s really effectively designed. The bowls really incredibly designed, and that’s what you’re going to expect with Davinci. That’s something that we’ve come to know them for incredibly well designed products.
- ONLY SMALL 4 LED LIGHT DISPLY: Given that it’s small, it really only has those four LED lights which we found out to be a little bit limiting. So it’s going to take some time to get used to compared to some of the much bigger LED grids that their bigger products have.
- GETS HOT IN YOUR HAND: As always, with Davinci products, it really does get quite hot. A sleeve would help if you use it repetitively, it’s going to become hard to hold without the sleeve.
So those are two things that you really do have to keep in mind but there’s no way that they overshadow all of the pros that we’ve listed.
Scoring our of 100.
PRESENTATION • 80
When it comes to presentation it’s an 80, right? Eight out of 10 we can say. Now there’s nothing wrong with it, but obviously it’s a simple little product.
RELIABILITY • 90
It’s very reliable, sturdy little device and works as expected.
QUALITY • 90
Again, we give it a 90. We don’t ever want to give anything 100, especially when it comes to Davinci because we really want to keep seeing them continue to push the boundary and continue to improve their product. So we don’t want to make them think that they’ve hit the peak yet.
EASE OF USE • 85
In terms of ease of use, we gave it an 85 out of 100 simply because we did have a little bit of trouble understanding exactly its functionality based on the limited LED grid. But overall, it’s not really that difficult to use. It’s pretty much load and go, which is what we really like about Davinci products.
So if you’re looking for a small portable vape that you can just kind of take with you and go, then this is definitely a product that we recommend. It’s sleek, it’s well designed, it’s incredibly efficient, and at the end of the day, it’s a great value for the price point that it’s at.

Overall, the MIQRO C by Davinci is an impressive device. Its compact size and sleek design make it a great choice for those who are always on the go. The smart paths and pearl feature allow for customization and a unique experience every time you use it. The vapor quality is great and it is incredibly easy to use and maintain.
However, the device does have a tendency to get quite hot, which can be uncomfortable for extended use. Additionally, the battery life is not the best, but it is to be expected given the size of the device.
Overall, I would highly recommend the MIQRO C to anyone looking for a high-quality, portable vaporizer. With its affordable price point and top-of-the-line features, it’s a great value for your money.
