WISPR vs DaVinci Vaporizer

1

Introduction

Since we are currently in the middle of summer, and fellow connoisseurs are enjoying the great Canadian outdoors, we have gotten many inquires about high-end portable vaporizers. Two units that perfectly fit that bill are the very discrete and portable Iolite WISPR and DaVinci vaporizer. Today we will compare the two.

WISPR Vaporizer by Iolite

WISPR VaporizerThis unit is very portable with a sleek looking retro design. It is very easy to use with the signature dual click operating system. The first click will get purified butane to rush through the catalytic converter and the second click will ignite the heating process. This is super-easy and convenient. What we also like about the new model is the visible fuel level window. Now you can actually see the level of butane that is left in the unit, no more guessing. In terms of vapor quality the unit is good as it produces visibly smooth vapor. The vapor quality is only average among portables. However, in terms of portability the unit is awesome. It looks very discrete, the materials are all very sturdy and the fold away drawing stem allows you to put the unit in your pocket right after use. Overall, it is a very convenient and easy to use handheld vapourizer, which has about 2 hours of continuous vaporization. That is about 60% more than the Da Vicni!

DaVinci Vaporizer

DaVinci VaporizerThis gadget is highly portable and has a great design. The unit looks like a walky-talky and is very easy to use as well. It beats the contender when it comes to temperature flexibility and vapor quality. This means perfect temperature control. The unit is truly made for portability. It even comes with a small storage compartment inside the unit, which allows you to store 2-3 rounds of botanicals. We really loved the composite material drawing whip. It is bendable and very robust, so you can put it in your pocket and don’t have to worry about anything breaking. One charge will allow you to vaporize for around 1.2 hours. In terms of vapor quality the unit produces nice and thick vapor as the temperature can be increased to 220 degrees Celsius (at this time a record high among portables). In comparison the IOLITE unit that only burns at 190 degrees Celsius.

Summary

So who wins? In terms of design and manufacturing quality both units are excellent. For vapor quality and smart design, we have to give the nod to the Da Vinci as the vapor was smoother and cooler. Also, we were able to set the temperature to our personal preference. This is very important, because some people like thick vapor (high temperature) and some others prefer thinner vapor (lower temperature). However, if you are camping or you are not near an electricity outlet, a unit that works with butane, coupled with a can of purified Colibri butane will allow you to vape for days. So the unit is perfect for the remote Canadian outdoors.
To sum up, if vapor quality, discreteness and temperature control are important to you, the Da Vinci would be a better choice. If you are looking for portability and do not want to deal with the hassle of charging your unit, the WISPER is a great choice.
We hope this will make the choice between the two units a little easier and would welcome the comments of anybody that knows these two units.
Thanks for reading,

  1. The WISPR is a very well designed unit. The heat distribution and airflow system are second to none that I have seen. The main drawback with the WISPR is robustness. I have now had 2 units, both of which have failed within weeks of purchase. The first unit started getting weaker and weaker after about 6 weeks of use (4-5 times daily) to the point where it failed to start up completely. Iolite replaced the unit under warranty (excellent service, there) and my second unit worked flawlessly for about 3 months until it suddenly just quit – just wouldn’t turn on, no gas-flow. I also have an IoLite, but that has been getting gradually weaker and weaker and harder to start over time (about 4 months.) I have been using the recommended Colibri brand butane exclusively in both models.
    Excellent design, but just not robust enough for continuous use. If this was a $50-60 unit I wouldn’t mind replacing it every few months, but at the current price that isn’t an option.
