The Focusvape Pro S is the successor to the Focusvape Pro, a dry herb vaporizer made and manufactured by China-based company iFocus Technologies. The Focusvape Pro S has some striking similarities to the Focusvape Pro. These features make the Focusvape Pro S more of a familiar device allowing many of the brand’s consumers to easily pick up the Focusvape Pro S and use it without having to go through a lot of steps and procedures. This makes the Focusvape Pro S a worthy upgrade as it lets you enjoy the same features only in a more premium body. That said, what sets the Focusvape Pro S apart from the standard pro version is its high-quality aluminum shell that protects the technology hidden under the Focusvape Pro S’s hood. For the uninitiated, aluminum is a metal that’s both durable and lightweight which places the Focusvape Pro S in a better position to be used as an on-the-go vaporizer. That said, the rest of what the Focusvape Pro S has to offer is similar to its standard pro version. These include the same beefy 2300mAh battery capacity that allows you to easily squeeze in significant sessions for when you need to consume your select dry herb strains when you’re out and about. And in classic Focusvape fashion, the Focusvape Pro S’s battery is removable and replaceable allowing you to take your sessions to another level in terms of portability and in maintaining your device. What’s more, it also boasts the same precision temperature control setting allowing you to set the temperature level of the Focusvape Pro S based on you needs and on your preference. This way, you get to make your sessions truly yours and not based on the preset temperature settings dictated by the manufacturer. There’s also the ceramic heating chamber which ensures that your herbs are heated and vaporized without reaching the point of combustion. All of that in a durable and stylish body that does not only make the Focusvape Pro S hold up well against wear and tear but also make it look as sleek as a vaporizer could.
However, the Focusvape Pro S may be too much for most beginners to handle. The Focusvape Pro S’s precision temperature settings may not exactly work well for beginners as it does require some level of understanding about temperature and how well your select dry herb strains react to it. Beginners typically go with vaporizers with a single temperature setting or one with preset temperature profiles that have been designed and engineered to extract sprecific results. Moreover, those who are still testing the waters may find that having to invest in spare batteries and an external battery charger might not be the best place to start if you’re just making the transition from smoking to vaping and may be overwhelmed with the amount of accessories involved in vaping and how much they cost. If you’re here for the same reasons, don’t worry, this product review is for you. We’ll talk about some of the Focusvape Pro S’s relevant features so you can make an informed decision whether or not the Focusvape Pro S is the right vaporizer for you before you splash the cash. So, if you’re ready then let’s get started.
Aluminum alloy has always been one of the top choices for many companies when designing and developing cases for many devices. That’s because aluminum alloy, as we’ve covered above, boasts a lighter weight and more durability making it an ideal choice for when you want to build a vaporizer that’s meant to be carried, slid in and out of a pocket, and used almost anywhere possible. Instead of the normal raw materials used in the standard pro version of the Focusvape portable dry herb vaporizer, the Focusvape Pro S focuses in improving the housing that holds all the intricate technology it hides under the hood. The aluminum alloy body allows not only for some level of resistance against wear and tear but also some level of elegance you’ll find only on expensive devices. This brings an element of sophistication to a device that’s sole purpose is to provide impeccable function. That said, you can expect the Focusvape Pro S to look well whether you’re rocking a casual look in jeans and shirts or for when you’re in a formal attire in suit or in a tux.
In terms of grip and ergonomics, the Focusvape Pro S is still surprisingly a joy to hold. It feels substantial in the hands thanks to the weight provided by the large 18650 batteries tucked underneath the aluminum shell. The smoother surface may not be as grippy as the silica rubber used on the standard pro version, but it makes sliding the Focusvape Pro S in and out of your pocket a little easier without the inherent traction you get from the silica rubber. The new aluminum housing also offers better battery ventilation found at the bottom of the battery’s cap allowing better airflow in the battery compartment which could prevent battery overheating. This is in line with the Focusvape Pro S’s battery capacity as it can let you enjoy significantly long sessions and having to use the Focusvape Pro S in constant succession may cause the battery and the inside of the Focusvape Pro S to build up unwanted heat.
That said, because of the new aluminum build, the Focusvape Pro S can sometimes be a fingerprint magnet. Especially if you’ve got somewhat sweaty hands, the Focusvape Pro S’s surface may gather unwanted prints when used overtime. Luckily, it’s easy to clean but having to wipe the Focusvape Pro S every now and then could be a hassle.
The Focusvape Pro S, like its standard counterpart, does sport a 3200mAh battery. What this means is that it can yield longer vaping sessions in between charges allowing you to enjoy more time doing the thing you love the most instead of having to wait for the battery to get charged. The Focusvape Pro S gives at least an hour of continuous use which averages at 10 sessions with varying temperature settings. We opted to keep our consumption methods the way it is which makes testing the Focusvape Pro S’s battery life a little bit more realistic. That said, if you’re on the heavy side of consuming herbs, the Focusvape Pro S can give you lasting sessions leaving you with having to plug the battery in about once or twice if you’re consuming heavily and frequently. However, if you’re on the lighter side of consuming your ground herbs, you will find that the amount of use you get from the Focusvape Pro S can last you a day especially if you give it a good spread in short sessions with smaller doses of ground botanicals. Of course, it helps if you keep the temperature level at the lowest setting as using higher temperature profiles demands more power from your battery.
And pretty much like its predecessor, the S version of the Focusvape Pro has removable batteries allowing you to swap used and depleted ones with a fresh new pack of fully charged batteries. This lets you take portable vaping to a whole new level, the kind that lets you use it even when you go to places where there’s no available power outlets. Imagine having to go to island escapades and even when camping, you can literally use the Focusvape Pro S your whole trip even without having to plug it a single time. That’s if you bring spare batteries. It also has its benefits when it comes to maintaining the device. Instead of having to replace the entire unit when the battery dies, which it would eventually. All you need to do with the Focusvape Pro S is to remove the battery and swap in a new one.
The only downside of using the Focusvape Pro S, battery-wise is that you may have to purchase several spare batteries and even an external charger so you can take full advantage of this feature.
The Focusvape Pro S also boasts an improved ceramic herb chamber. Although upon stripping the Focusvape Pro S the ceramic herb chamber may look the same as the standard pro version, the Focusvape Pro S’s ceramic herb chamber is supposed to heat faster. That said, we still got a 20 to 30-second heat up time with the Focusvape Pro S. That said, it still gets the job done by making sure that the herbs are heated without having to reach the point of combustion which keeps the vapors smooth and clean despite the changing temperature levels the Focusvape Pro S’s precision temperature setting has to offer. This means that the vapor quality remains the same even though it does heat your herbs a little faster.
The Focusvape Pro S is a great device if you’re looking for something sleeker. It may offer virtually identical features (with the same downsides) but the Focusvape Pro S’s new aluminum housing makes it a great device to flaunt to your friends during group sessions.
