    Check out @puffitups IG stream today for a preview. I couldn't stick around to watch.

    The Aero is a full convection device that houses two stainless steel chambers which rotate & has a zirconia top -- mouthpiece??? I read that it's due out in 2 weeks. $170.

    They get the texture right on the bottom 90%, then they go and put a bright, shiny, smudge magnet on top :shrug:

    I like the fact that it has such modern features as a session clock. Wonder why this feature is uncommon?

    I hate session clocks. It's my biggest complaint about my Fury 2.

    So, I watched the stream in it's entirety. It appears to be styled after the Solo just smaller. And Randy said that it reminds him of the Haze 3 where you can have 2 bowls packed. And I believe that there is a rod in the bottom airpath that is adjustable. The shiny top doesn't bother me.

    So Randall Elkins joined in most of the stream. He's apparently back in Austin, TX & I don't know how he's affiliated with Focusvapes -- he's just may be beta-testing the Aero for them over the past 3 months. He said that FV has several really nice vapes coming out in the future.

    It was a nice stream. If puffitup doesn't remove it, t should be up for like another 14 hours from now for viewing.

    Lol. Ya think? I'm surprised that Airizer doesn't have rights to sue them over it.

    Just for the sake of clarity, the two bowls are used one at a time?

    Is it possible to vape two bowls at the same time and if not ... Why not ? Abusers will be in delight :D..
    Btw i really like that Zirconia as a moutpiece material,altough i think it conducts a bit more heat than glass. Looks really sleek and feels nice in the mouth.I have the FOG but its moutpiece is too low in mass and gets too hot,this one looks like will do a far better job.

    From what I understand it’s not possible to vape both at once. You have to turn the entire section to place the chamber over the convection path.

    Thx for clarifying @-dab8- So it has one heater/heating chamber but two bowls which rotate over it,kind of revolver style.

    Welcome! And nice job on the Aero!

    So this is a pure convection unit, that heats session style? Hot when on waiting for a draw? Or does it heat on demand only when you are pressing the button? Seems likes a nice design either way

    It’s a session style unit so when you turn it on the heather starts.

    Thanks for the comment! haha being an abuser myself I could certainly see the benefit to 2 chambers working at the same time!! but in this particular vape its more meant as a convenience factor!

    For the Zirconia top ill post a pic of the mouthpiece inside. It stays very cool to the touch because of our maze like air path built in!

    [​IMG]

    (Excuse my mess of a mouthpiece haha I just noticed I never put my MP screen back on before using it)


    Thanks! Yes it is a full convection unit and is session style. Although if you are not puffing on it little to no conductive heat is being built up.

    @FocusV That mouthpiece maze looks great,i've seen something similar but very poorly executed in crappy vape named(VIE revolution) . Is the waterpipe adapter also made of ceramic zirconia ? Is ceramic zirconia harder than glass,maybe the grinding on the glass joints would leave marks/scratches if one is not careful ?

    The WPA is a coated metal (Aluminum if im not mistaken) very sturdy. keeps the aero on a bong without having to hold it up by hand.

    I wonder what kind of connection is used to charge the battery?
    With USB-C I would be in love!

    Unfortunately the Aero is our last vaporizer still using USB Micro,

    The Focus 1 and the Carta which release early 2019 all use USB-C!

    Thanks for the fast reply!
    The Focus 1 looks really interesting! Will the temperature settings be user customisable via Bluetooth?
