Alas, the trials and tribulations of a new vaporizer launch have struck again. The highly anticipated May 15th release of the Ascent Vaporizer by DaVinci has been delayed. In an email sent to the pre-registration list for the Ascent yesterday, the folks at DaVinci expressed regret that the product needed to be pushed back due to "unforeseeable circumstances in our supply chain" but assured customers that the delays were necessary to insure they will be able to "bring to market, a vaporizer, that will surely exceed all expectations."
A tweet from DaVinci a few hours earlier also expressed their disappointment at not being able to launch on the projected release date:

Here is an excerpt from an email we received about the delay:
Dear Valued Customer,
It is with the greatest regret that Organicix/DaVinci announces yet another delay in the arrival of the Ascent Vaporizer. Due to unforeseeable circumstances in our supply chain, the release date is being pushed back from May 15. We thank everyone for their patience in this matter, and we hope that you do trust that we are striving to bring to market, a vaporizer, that will surely exceed all expectations.
Rest assured, we are very close to a launch date, but simply cannot and will not release a product that is not 100% ready to come to market. We at Organicix/DaVinci pride ourselves on our workmanship and attention to detail and want to make sure we give you, the consumer the best product available.
Although we know many of you are eager to get your hands on this hot new vape, it's nice to see a company that is willing to take a bit of heat in order to make sure their product is 100% ready for market. Better to delay it now, than release a product that might not live up to the high expectations many of us vapor enthusiast have set for the Ascent. Be patient... good things come to those who wait.
We will keep you posted about the Ascent launch as more info becomes available. In the meantime, keep calm and vape on!
