DaVinci Vape VS VaporBLUNT 2.0

One of the new kids on the block, the VaporBLUNT 2.0 improves on the original design in almost every way, but how does it stack up against the DaVinci?

Price/Aesthetics

So basically you’re looking at a $50 price difference with the Davinci edging out the VaporBlunt 2.0 at $199.99 vs. $249.99. Of course then this begs the question, which will be most worth the value? That my friends, is what we will find out together below. But of course it’s always nice to pay less for a product of equal or greater quality, so at the outset, the DaVinci leaves you with a nice chunk more of change in your pocket. Aesthetics-wise, we can approach from two separate angles.

Is it more hip to have a little palm-size vape with what looks like an old-school antennae protruding out of the top for super DL use, or would it be better to rock more of a serious, powerful, official-type vape. The VaporBlunt looks very sharp in its dock, and definitely demands to be taken seriously while the mini Davinci, seems like a neat little trick you pull out of your pocket, but just what can it really do? For me personally, I have to go with the mini, as it just seems cooler to pop a vape out of nowhere that doesn’t even look like a vape, and is just as easily disappeared back into whatever little nook on your person is concealing it.

Construction/Durability

While both the Davinci Vape and the VaporBLUNT 2.0 are very durable and can easily survive a decent fall, there’s a unique compactness to the Davinci’s feel in your hand that tells you it was constructed a bit tougher than it’s rival here. A lot of people worry about the plastic shell on the VaporBLUNT 2.0, but when you feel it’s heft in your hand, you quickly ascertain that this is no shoddily constructed piece of equipment.

I will say that with the larger size and heavier weight of the Vapor BLUNT 2.0, it seems a bit more of a worry that you’re going to chink or smash it in a moment of clumsiness. The Davinci is just so ergonomic and graspable, one just has much better control over it’s use and transport. Easy win here for the second generation VaporBLUNT.

The DaVinci's digital temperature display is much more convenient than the VB2 heat level lights.

Portability

This aspect is an instant K.O. in favor of the DaVinci and quite honestly, would be up against just about any vape out there. Not only do you truly get a handheld size with the 3″x1.5″ miniature specs, but the flexi-straw seals the deal, as it is virtually indestructible, and allows for easy pocket stashing and on-the-go convenience.

Now in defense of the 2.0, it has been pared way down from it’s predecessor to a moderately compact 5 inches, and is definitely in every sense of the word portable, but it’s bulk and heft do not allow it to fit into a pocket or small compartment, which makes it ideal for a backpack or small travel bag instead. I have traveled with both and would say that the VaporBLUNT 2.0 is stealth while the DaVinci is ultra-stealth.

Can't deny that the completely straight vapor path on the VaporBLUNT 2.0 makes cleaning extremely easy.

Ease of Use

The great thing about the Davinci, well, there’s a few. First off, the lithium-ion battery will give you some of the longest battery life of any vape on the market, and that’s a statement you can count on. They both have the nifty feature of being functional while they are in a charging mode, but extended battery life of the DaVinci really is a huge advantage here, especially because we are in the realm of portable vapes.

The other uber-nifty feature is a built-in compartment for the cleaning brush on the DaVinci and space to store oil cans or surplus vaping material for future sessions. Yowza. I will say that cleaning the VaporBLUNT seems to be a bit easier, as well as its screen, and this is despite its larger size. I’ve heard of a few issues with the DaVinci’s door hinge to the herb chamber, and while picking an exact temp is definitely more functional than the VaporBLUNT’s 5 pre-sets, it also creates a bit more of an effort rather than just settling on a setting and not constantly playing with numbers of exact temperatures.

The flavored mouthpiece for the VaporBLUNT 2.0 also has the advantage over the rubber mouthpiece for the DaVinci, though to be fair, the taste really doesn’t suffer on the DaVInci  in any terminal way because of this. Also, you don’t have to worry about where you hold the VaporBLUNT 2.0 when using but for the Davinci, it being such a tiny model, the heat does escape to the surface in certain areas of the unit, and so hand position is something that needs to be thoughtful at times.

When I consider all of the factors, and stick strictly to the criteria of the category, it almost comes down to a draw, but I myself always seem to have difficulty with smaller devices and getting inside them to get them clean or pack them, so I will have to give a slight edge here to the VaporBLUNT which really is a cinch to use.

The oil cans you use with the DaVinci are far less involved than the VB2's oil set up.

Vapor Quality

We’ve got to go with the bigger of the two little dogs in this round. It just comes down to size and power really. The DaVinci produces quality vapor hits, but just can’t compete with the bigger muscle of the VaporBLUNT 2.0. You just don’t have to pull as hard, as it seems to do the work for you, and the same usually cannot be said for  very small vapes like the DaVinci. This was always a minor annoyance to me, as I like to just gently tug, and so I duly appreciate the greater efficacy of a larger unit.

The still-small VaporBLUNT 2.0 finds a nice little middle ground between portability and power, and that is an ideal place to be when it comes down to actual vapor quality. And it simply crushes the DaVinci when you put the DaVinci’s extended tube snorkel attachment($19.95) up against the water pipe attachment(~$200). Of course that’s a heck of a lot more to pay, but as the old adage most times holds true, you get what you pay for. A very wise albeit less practical investment if you ask me.

Verdict

I really like both of these units, and I really like to vape out of each of them for differing reasons. But for me personally, the extreme portability of the DaVinci makes up for the minor shortcomings and the power that it lacks. There’s nothing like a true pocket vape that is of genuine quality and construction and in the end it just equals more versatility than the VaporBLUNT 2.0 can contend with.

Now on the other hand, you may be a person who’s more apt to hang out at the homestead, and just take it easy while vaping the day away. In that case, the VaporBLUNT 2.0 may just be the perfect cross-over that you can chill with at the coffee table on it;s stand with the waterpipe attachment affixed, and then decide you wanna detach the base and go take a load off in the hammock out in the backyard. It really comes down to preference, but for the city-goer like myself, hopping the train with the DaVinci in tow simply cannot be beat.
