It’s true that the Focus V Carta took eRigs to a whole new level. It showed the industry, the consumers, and even other manufacturers what the platform was capable of and that it could be done at an affordable price point. However, one of the Focus V Carta’s best feature is in its unparalleled portability. At the time of its release, eRigs all had integrated batteries. They were built in on the eRigs themselves and there was no way to separate them from the device unless maybe if you strip down the unit and void your warranty.
That said, the use of removable batteries gave the Focus V Carta the advantage of taking portability to the next level. A removable battery meant that you can use the Focus V Carta without the constant fear of running out of batteries and without the constant need of searching for a power outlet because you need to recharge your batteries when they run out. With removable batteries, you can easily remove the used-up battery and swap if for a fresh one. That said, as long as you carry pre-charged batteries and if you just plan your sessions carefully, you can bring the Focus V Carta with you during trips and when you go for vacations without ever having to plug it to a wall outlet. We’re talking about places you never imagined dabbing concentrates and vaping your favorite botanical strains was possible. We’re talking about camping trips in the mountains and on the beach, visiting places where no power is available, and so much more.
It made the impossible, possible. It was such a milestone in the early years of eRigs that it was constantly branded as the Puffco Peak killer. Apart from the advantage of portability and potentially never running out of power, the Focus V Carta made it possible to care and maintain your eRigs easily. Another example. Batteries, like atomizers, are one of the parts of the eRig that’s susceptible to wear and tear. That’s because the constant cycle of draining the battery and recharging the battery weakens it until it eventually breaks and can no longer hold charge. When you’re using an eRig with an integrated battery, you have to replace the whole unit when the battery breaks down. With the Focus V Carta, all you need to do is to remove the battery and exchange it with a new one. Simple, straightforward, and cost-effective.
Another benefit of using the Focus V Carta is its ability to personalize your sessions. It can be done through the preset temperature settings or through the interchangeable buckets. As we’ve briefly covered above, the Focus V Carta comes with four preset temperature settings right out of the box. Although the temperature profiles are your average low, medium, and high settings, they still offer decent personalization allowing you to get the best experience without having to go through too much trouble of setting the eRig up. With just a few clicks of a button, you can easily toggle through these settings and find the best temperature profile for your needs. The lower the temperature level, the more flavorful the vapor is although it would appear to be less dense and less visible. On the other hand, vaping on the highest setting allows you to extract the potent active ingredients from your herbs and wax concentrates. While we’re in the topic of temperature flexibility, the Focus V Carta shows that it can live up to its name as a smart eRig. It connects to a downloadable Bluetooth application that opens up a wider range of temperature settings giving the Focus V Carta more temperature settings that it can already be likened to that of using a device with precision temperature control. The application also gives the Focus V Carta the ability to monitor your sessions and provide you with other imperative information like your average sesh time and the duration of how long your sessions are.
Apart from the temperature settings, you can also personalize your sessions via the Focus V Carta’s inclusive atomizers. The Focus V Carta comes with a titanium and a quartz atomizer that allows for superb vapor production without having to reach the point of combustion. First, let’s talk about the quartz atomizers. Quartz has been known in the vaping industry as a heating element that quickly and almost instantaneously transfers heat. This also allows for the immediate extraction of the potent active ingredients found on your wax concentrates. The Focus V Carta’s quartz atomizers pairs well with its higher temperature settings allowing you to easily reap the benefits of quartz’s fast-acting properties which makes it a great atomizer for both medicating patients seeking quick relief from pain and anxiety as well as for causal consumers who are consuming wax concentrates as a form of recreation. On the other hand, the titanium atomizers are great for maximizing the flavor of your wax concentrates as the titanium atomizers can reach high temperature levels but still preserve the taste and the flavor of your extracts.
Overall, the Focus V Carta offers more than decent personalization and customization making it the ideal eRig for many consumers.
The beats many eRigs in the platform not only because of the features aforementioned but also because it has the capability of vaporizing both wax concentrates and dry herb strains. The Focus V Carta is designed and engineered to vaporize wax concentrates straight out of the box. The two inclusive atomizers; the titanium and the quartz atomizers are all intended for the consumption of extracts and wax concentrates. However, an additional herb atomizer can be purchased for the Focus V Carta. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of consuming select botanical plant matter with your eRig. There are a lot of eRigs on the market, some are more expensive than the Focus V Carta, but does not have this feature and capability. The Focus V Carta could just as well be the only eRig you’ll ever need.
Having to switch from herbs to wax concentrates is easy and requires you only to change the atomizer. That said, you can still take advantage of the settings found on the device itself and on the Bluetooth application when using the Focus V Carta for dry herbs.
The Focus V Carta performs quite well with both wax and dry herbs thanks to its superior heating element as well as its integrated water attachment. The water bubbler is made from high-quality borosilicate glass and does a good job of filtering the vapor. The glass attachment offers superior water filtration as well as moisture conditioning which makes the vapors cooler and easier to inhale. That said, the vapor you get from using the Focus V Carta won’t hurt nor will it irritate your throat which makes it more of a necessity if you don’t like inhaling warm vapors that make you cough and bark your lungs out.
Overall, we would recommend the Focus V Carta for both beginners and advanced consumers looking for a means to consume both herbs and wax concentrates without breaking the bank.
