The top latch opens to reveal the battery, the flavor chamber, and a small pick tool. The bottom lid of the IQ has a Zirconia Pearl connected to the bottom lid that slides right into the oven. It reflects heat back into the oven, resulting in an efficient and even “roast” of the herbs.
The Zirconia Pearl can be adjusted to reduce the size of the oven, but I suggest just leaving it in the default position and not messing around with it. The reason is, when screwing it out too much, it sticks out, and the latch doesn’t close smoothly. When it is screwed all the way in (or up to halfway), there is no problem at all. Just like the previous IQ, the IQ2 features a “flavor chamber,” which cools down the vapor, and can double as a small storage container. The flavor chamber sits under the top lid and can be pulled out and opened with the small pick tool that’s tucked right next to it. You can place enough herb there for about a session so you can have an extra bowl in the device, ready to vape. The flavor chamber is made from Zirconia, and it cools down the vapor as it passes through.
Adjustable Airflow (5 levels) The bottom lid of the IQ includes a new airflow control dial that has four levels of airflow. It can be turned to reveal one to four holes that will increase and decrease the amount of air that can pass through. This is important and has significant implications for the type of vapor you can get. Increasing the airflow will cause air to pass through the oven faster, resulting in cooler, less dense vapor. Closing the dial and reducing the airflow will result in a warmer, thicker vapor. The IQ2 features the same LED display we’re used to from the original IQ. It is a small LED grid, that can display temperature levels and various settings. The IQ 2 has a “stealth mode” that can be activated by pressing the power button together with the down arrow once to dim the LEDs. The IQ2 has two modes: Smart path or Precision mode. Smart Path mode gradually increases the temperature by 20 degrees as you vape, and you can choose from four preset Smart Paths or customize your own. Doing so is very simple, and it is an excellent option for anyone who likes to adjust the temperature as they vape. Basic operation: Click the power button five times to unlock and activate the device Select one of the four preset Smart Paths. The IQ will automatically heat up and vibrate when the designed temperature has reached. When on smart path mode, the IQ will gradually increase the temperature over an Eight minutes session. Mode 1: starts at 350F and increases to 370F Mode 2: starts at 370F and increases to 390F Mode 3- starts at 390 and increases to 410F Mode 4: starts at 410 and increases to 430F. Temp check & Precision mode : Pressing the power button once will display the current temperature when in smart-path mode. While the temp is displayed, you can enter precision mode by pressing the up or down arrows, and set a precise temperature between 350-430F. Other functions: Boost mode : Pressing and holding the power button will quickly boost the temperature to 430°F. The LEDs will show up arrows, and the temperature will increase. When the button is released, the IQ enters a “stand-by” mode that will cool the device and conserve herb and battery life. To return to the previously set temperature, press the up or down button once.
F °| C ° Toggle : Click all three buttons at once to toggle between Fahrenheit and Celcius. Factory reset : Turn off the device and press all three buttons together for ten seconds. The IQ2 will vibrate and reset to factory settings. As with any other vape, I highly recommend maintaining your vaporizer and cleaning it when required. You should empty your oven and remove derbies after every session. Every 8-12 uses the IQ2 needs a deep-clean which includes cleaning the following components with ISO alcohol: The “flavor chamber” and the mouthpiece.
Any latches or moving parts that collected residue.
