Made and manufactured by vaporizer company iFocus Technology, the Focusvape is not only their flagship device but also their first entry to the portable dry herb vaporizer category. iFocus Technology is a company that specializes in designing, marketing, and manufacturing different kinds of vaporizers. And while the company’s main headquarters is situated in China, they’ve managed to set up various offices all over the world including the States, an in different regions in Europe. That said, they have effectively infiltrated the world market, and thanks to the Focusvape, iFocus Technology has made a significant mark in the vaporizer industry. And we’d understand why. The Focusvape is backed by a beefy battery rated at 2500mAh capacity allowing its users to enjoy a significant amount of sessions in between charges. What’s good about it is that the battery is also removable and replaceable which does not only allow for more portability but also makes is so that you get to extend the device’s longevity. The battery delivers power to the device’s ceramic-based herb chamber allowing your herbs and other ground botanical plant matter to be heated without getting to the point of combustion. This only means cleaner and smoother vapor production throughout all your sessions. Speaking of pure vapor production, the Focusvape also have all sorts of features geared to improve the quality of your vapors. It’s got an isolated airpath which means that the vapors generated by the Focusvape does not get into contact with other corrosive components. The adjustable airflow also helps you control the density of the vapor – all so you can personalize your sessions depending on your likes and your preferences. All of that packed in a portable dry herb vaporizer with a battery that can keep up with your needs.
That said, the Focusvape might not appeal to all types of consumers. The lack of precision temperature controls in a dry herb vaporizer may cause experienced and advanced consumers to stop and step back before making a purchase. Plus, the removable and replaceable battery means that you will have to shell out more money in order to take full advantage of this feature. That said, if you’ve been eyeing the Focusvape for a while but are concerned whether or not it’s the right vaporizer for you, this product review will help you out. Here, we’ll talk about some the relevant features of the Focusvape so you can get to know the device better and in turn make a better decision before you splash any cash. We’ll also let you in on some of its real-world advantages and disadvantages when using it as your daily driver or as an occasional dry herb vaporizer for when you’re away from your desktop rig. So, let’s not waste any time and let’s get right on with the review.
First, let’s start with the Focusvape’s strongest asset – the battery. Having been outfitted with 2500mAh of battery capacity, the Focusvape can really put out some strong and significant sessions allowing you to reap the benefits of your favorite botanical plant matter when you’re out and about. Let’s face it, most of today’s dry herb vaporizers aren’t nearly as capable as the Focusvape, especially the ones that use convection ovens because they tend to demand more power from a portable rechargeable power source. During the time we tested the Focusvape, we were able to use it for a full day of vaping divided and spread out into short sessions with small doses of herbs. That said, if you use it frequently or even participate in a group session with it and pass the Focusvape around, you might find that you need to recharge it at the very least once or twice a day.
On that note, longevity isn’t what exactly what Focusvape’s battery has to offer. It also is removable and replaceable which opens up a whole new level of portability and reliability. In terms of portability, you will be able to use the Focusvape in places where there’no available power source. We’re talking about for when you travel and go island hopping or camping out in the wilds. Because the battery can easily be removed and replaced, the Focusvape can technically go to places where other portable vaporizers can’t. As long as you plan your sessions ahead and carry a pack of charged batteries, you can literally use the Focusvape over and over without having to plug it in even once. Just as soon as your battery dies, swap it in with a new one and keep on going. In terms of reliability, having a replaceable battery makes the Focusvape more appealing to those investing in it for the long run. Portable vaporizers that use integrated batteries will tend to require the entire unit to be replaced when the battery dies out – and batteries are the first ones to wear out especially when it reaches its charge cycle. With the Focusvape, all you need to do is to replace the battery and you’re all set. Moreover, when you use your vaporizer to recharge your batteries, it tends to tax the device and add to the wear and tear it has to put up with. When you’re using removable batteries, you can just recharge your batteries with an external charger and save your Focusvape from the added stress of having to recharge your batteries, especially if you have spares. That said, you will have to purchase several spare batteries and an external battery charger to get the most out of this feature.
iFocus’ Focusvape uses preset temperature settings to add some level of temperature flexibility to your sessions. Thatn said, Focusvape’s preset temperature settings could work for you or against you.
Having preset temperature levels allows one to easily select and toggle through a set of pre-determined temperature profiles which can make it easy to find your sweet spot. Especially when you’re using a vaporizer on-the-go, having to select from six temperature settings is easier than having to select from a wide range of temperature levels determined by small increments. That’s why devices with preset temperature settings like the Focusvape are more appealing to beginners and newcomers because it allows them to easily choose a temperature level that are more often than not, compatible to a wide variety of dry herb strains. On the other hand, this may not sit well with more advanced consumers primarily because of the lack of personalization and customization its six presets offer. Unlike beginners, experienced consumers will have a deeper understanding of how temperature works and what kind of active ingredients it extracts when they expose their herbs and ground botanicals to it. Having this much confidence and knowledge about vaping temp puts them in a better position in using a device with precision temperature controls.
The Focusvape offers a good amount and a good spread of temperature settings that are designed not only for the needs of beginners but also for experienced consumers. Here are the available presets.
Preset 1: 320° F
Preset 2: 338° F
Preset 3: 356° F
Preset 4: 374° F
Preset 5: 392° F
Preset 6: 428° F
As with most vaporizers with preset temperature settings, the lower presets are great for flavor and aroma while the higher presets are perfect for when you need to experience the intensity of the potency of your herbs. Just make sure that the Focusvape’s preset temperature settings falls within your preference before committing to use it as your main vaporizer.
The Focusvape is a portable dry herb vaporizer that’s not only known for its beefy battery but also for the quality of vapors it can put out. As we briefly covered above, the ceramic herb chamber does help a lot in making sure that the herbs are evenly heated and that the ground botanicals in it does not get burned. For the uninitiated, ceramic is an inert material that does not transfer heat quickly. For that same reason, it’s been handpicked and used by the engineers who worked on the Focusvape to ensure that it facilitates a low and progressive means of heating. By that we mean that it starts out with a low temperature and climbs up at a steady pace instead of blasting your herbs with a wave of high temperature which could result in combustion. In that way, the Focusvape keeps the vapors pure and reduces the production of irritants and impurities that might cause you to cough vehemently even during your first draw. This also keeps the vapors appealing for medicating patients as it does not have any significant effect you typically get from combusted plant matter.
Focusvape also has a few features that help it preserve vapor quality including the airflow control system which lets you decrease air intake which improves the vapor’s flavor and potency but significantly reduces its density. Or by letting the airflow increase which does otherwise.
Overall, the Focusvape is a great entry-level dry herb vaporizer and could be a great side vape for advanced consumers looking for a device that can give them good quality vapors without the fuss.
