The DaVinci Ascent vaporizer is probably one of the hottest vaporizers on the market right now. It produces some of the most delicious tasting vape I have ever come across, is made with real quality, and is easy to use.
Let’s have a look into the Ascent a little more closely.
My biggest problem with the older DaVinci model was that loading was a bit of a pain in the you know what. Because of the design, a part of the basic unit was covering the heating chamber, making it really difficult to load without spilling your herbs all over the place. That’s no longer an issue with the new DaVinci Ascent, which has its heating chamber in the bottom of the main unit and makes it easy to swing it out and access. Moreover, this bowl is actually about 30% larger than the other one.
Like the other DaVinci model, this one also comes with oil canisters that can be filled and dropped into the heating chamber. They can get really hot in there, so be careful and use the tools DaVinci provides, but it’s fantastic to have that option.
Actually using the device is really quite nice. It has an all glass vapor pathway, which I didn’t think would make too much of a difference, but it really does produce an excellent, even, and great tasting, thick vapor!
The glass stem slides into the unit and can be taken out when you want to use it. You can add additional stem if you really like, but it’s not necessary in most cases. It’s the first glass on glass portable vaporizer to be made, and I hope more models follow their lead because the pull was great and the flavor wonderful.
There’s not a whole lot to charging it, really. Like other, similar models, you plug it in and wait a few hours (around 5 full hours) for it to go from empty to fully charged.
Again, if you read my reviews, you know that I love it when I can pick the actual temperature that the vape heats at, and the DaVinci Ascent vaporizer lets me do just that. It has an LCD screen with a few animated icons to let me know when it’s ready and what temperature it’s at, and I like that it holds a consistent temp once I set it. This unit maxes out at 430°F.
Another great thing I love about it is that you can set it to your vaping style and it’ll remember it. In other words, you can set it to begin at a certain temperature for the first few minutes, then have it automatically adjust. Super cool!
The battery on the Ascent will last you about 3-4 hours, however, it will obviously depend on what temperature you are using. Obviously the higher the temp, the more battery you’ll use, but from our tests, you’ll get at least 3 hours out of it.

Looking out for your investment on the DaVinci is very simple.
As per usual, make use of the cleaning tools that come with it, and clean out the heating chamber after every use. You’re also going to want to be careful of the stem, the LCD screen, and the glass inside.
While it does provide a great vapor, it is glass and the right drop with the right shock could crack the whole vapor column, so be very careful and don’t leave the stem sticking out of the device when you’re not using it.
All in all, I really like the DaVinci Ascent Vaporizer.
Compared to the previous DaVinci model, they have made some decent improvements – it looks awesome, I love being able to control the temperature, it’s easy to use, and it creates some incredible vapor, and will last you anywhere from around 3-4 hours.
There’s very little not to love and I’d give it 2 thumbs up.
