Vape Review – DaVinci Ascent

DaVinci Ascent Review

You may have been using a perfectly good portable vaporiser for years, and have no technical problems with it, however you’re likely to be limited to using it for either dried herbs or oils. The DaVinci ascent is the latest of our featured vaporisers, which totally erases this problem, letting you vape dry herbs, wax and essential oils with great comfort, convenience and if required discretion.

The outer casing of the Ascent screams luxury. The unit is compact, with a comfortable, curved shape, and available in a variety of gorgeous finishes – the “burl wood” is my personal favourite. It has an OLED display built into one face, which shows you the current temperature (ranging between 3 and 221 degrees Celsius) and has an easy to understand control interface, letting you customise how the whole thing works. There’s a retractable glass mouthpiece, though this isn’t necessary for use, which pulls smoothly out of the top of the unit. This mouthpiece is an extension of the Ascent’s vapour pathway, which is all glass, leaving no room for that god-awful artificial taste you get with a lot of cheap vapes. The other end of the model swings out to reveal the heating chamber, which is compatible with dry herbs, concentrates, waxes and oils through the use of a glass insert. Two of these come with the box, but you can order more from our site.

Using the Ascent is easy and pleasurable. DaVinci have managed to create an exceptionally functional unit, combined with the simplicity of being able to operate it with just one button. If you really hate having to fiddle around all the time with vaporisers, you can configure the Ascent to bump up its heat bit by bit at certain intervals of time. The power button, located near where the mouthpiece retracts, turns the unit on and begins warming up towards your set ideal temperature. Like many modern vaporisers, the Ascent comes with an auto shut-down feature, though refreshingly it allows you to set how long it needs to be idle for before turning itself off.

When drawing the Ascent, you can either use the retractable mouthpiece, or simply put your lips to the opening at the top (check out our video!). Each of these options puts up different levels of resistance, but never so much that you have to put everything down and clean the vape out. The stem of the Ascent is only fixed into the bulk of the unit by rubber, which I was slightly wary of at first, but it’s a snug fit and doesn’t show any signs of delicacy. While the Ascent is reportedly designed to stop heated concentrates being drawn through the mouthpiece, this part can get sticky fairly quickly, but this is a minor hitch in an otherwise solid model.

In conclusion, the DaVinci Ascent is an excellent portable vaporiser, with huge concentrations of style and functionality, sacrificing neither. The comfort, usability, and aesthetic design all show that DaVinci certainly cares about their customers’ satisfaction, and are determined to improve everyone’s vaping experience.
