The IQ is a pure conduction vape, which means it utilizes radiant heat from the hot walls of the oven to vaporizer your herb, and the FF2 is a pure convection vape which means it vaporizes your herb or concentrate solely with super-heated air.
How they’re used is going to differ quite a bit, as is the ideal situations to use them in.
I would say that the IQ is an excellent choice for supreme portability, it’s one of the best performing vapes that can fit in your pocket. This is a “session” vape though, meaning you fill it up, turn it on, and then take 10-20 draws before it’s spent and you turn it off.
With the FF2 it’s an “on-demand” convection vaping experience, so there’s a little more manual labor and technique involved with this one. However once it is mastered (which doesn’t take long) there is no other vaporizer quite like it in terms of vapor taste and smoothness.
