Focusvape has rolled up their sleeves and promises top engineering and sophisticated products! Behind the scenes many changes are happening over there. So be ready to see some other great units hitting the market in the spring of 2019.
The first new vaporizer to hit the market is the Aero a dual chamber full convection unit. Yup you read it right , a dual chamber!! Why two chambers? Not quite sure why they came up with this option but so far I am loving it. Fill both ovens before you step out of the house and your set for a great afternoon of pure flavourful vaping.
Ok enough talk about the dual chamber let’s get down to the unboxing and first impressions.(my unit was a pre-release so there has been some changes to the look of the box as well as some minor updates to the unit)
Upon looking at the box you can tell its a Focusvape product with its bright green writing as we seen in all there pre released vaporizers. Then when you open the box the Aero sits nicely in a plastic raised piece that looks a bit cheap. Then under this plastic piece you will find the typical accessories from usb cable, a loading funnel (love this) , cleaning brush , alcohol wipes and instructions .There will also offer a bubbler and wpa as accessories. I am hoping that Focusvape will add to its presentation on the final release.
*** Focusvape has contacted me and said the boxing has been update! Here are pictures of the new boxing. It is 100% improved , I really like what they did with the new packaging.
Now to the part that is really important…….the vaporizer itself! Its black, shinny and man oh man it feel like quality once you hold it in your hands.You can tell that they put lots of engineering into this one. Yes it does have a familiar look but trust me its no Solo knock off!
The mouthpiece is pure zirconium and its very comfortable. When unscrewing the top part of the mouthpiece it then reveals a nice longer then expected airpath to insure cool vapour. The long airpath along with the zirconium mouthpiece you know this thing is going to push out some seriously smooth vapour! Then mouthpiece is in two pieces making for easy cleaning of that airpath hidden in there.
Also at the bottom of the unit there is a stir tool tightly tucked away . This is a great idea as with a convection you will definitely need to stir that bowl during a sesh.Thanks Focusvape I really love this little option. The stir tool is really well designed with a scoop shape making for a great loading tool as well.
Before using the unit
Enough talk about the build and looks let’s get down to using this new vaporizer! But before that you know the drill……Plug the unit in over night to get a proper first charge. Then you will want to do a couple burn offs at max temp to rid the unit of any unwanted oils left from manufacturing. I also take some Q-tips dipped in ISO and clean the oven, mouthpiece and the air path. Yeah it’s probably overkill but hell it makes me feel better knowing I did it.
Loading the ovens
Now that the unit is cleaned and fully charged. It’s time to get it loaded so we can see how it performs. A nice accessory they have included is a loading funnel, so just insert it on top of the oven to load your cannabis. Make sure not to over pack as this will affect its performance. From my testing a light pack almost as if you want or could add another scoop. Go ahead and repeat this as this unit has two ovens! Now that both are loaded lets get this session started.
Let’s start vaping
To turn the unit on you need to click the on/off button 3 times rapidly and the same if you would want to turn the unit off. Then it will automatically start heating up to the last temp.After dialing in the temp just wait and the unit will vibrate once its ready. The heat up time takes around 40 seconds but I tend to hold off a a bit before taking that first hit.
Now this is a pure convection unit so ideally take nice long draws. This unit has an adjustable air flow but from experience fully open is best. Convection units tend to need lots of air to work properly so I leave mine wide open. The first hit is always my favorite on all vapes as its the best tasting IMO. As the heater gets warmed up more you will notice the vapour get thinker but the flavours stay nice and bold. The sesh time is set for 5 minutes so when it ends I recommend stirring the bowl and give it another sesh. The second sesh you will notice the vapour will be much thinner as the cannabis is getting spent.
Now that the first bowl is spent we can move on to the next one. All you need to do is twist the top ring firmly and that will switch the bowl. No harder than that! You are now ready to start another bowl , it’s that easy!
After using this pre-release for a few weeks it quickly became a favourite but like everyone new units always get all the attention!
So far the unit has met my needs, but would like a silicone sleeve to be included if not sold separately. The outer casing does get hot if you are going to vape two bowls in a row , but not has hot as the IQ. The biggest reason for the sleeve for me is for protection against the clombsyness of my stoner self! Cause with its all black body and somewhat shiny finish scratches will show up easily.
The spent cannabis in my testing did not have any crazy dark or charred bits. Seemed very even and properly spent getting a full extraction from the bowls loaded.
I would say Focusvape is on the right track ! The Aero should be a great unit to add to your collection if looking for a pure convection unit.
The Aero will be released December 17, and to make things more interesting Focus-V are giving away 3 units the week before its release!! Make sure to check out the details on my Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/p/BrGqHebgt-4/?hl=en
