    I bought 2 of those from KR Dank, yes they solve the melting lid issue, better to be safe than sorry, some glass attachments are hardened to fit though since it is custom made but hits very nice!


    I can second for two dollar tuesday it really does happen, I won one of the custom glass pieces with a succulent/plant attached to it, it is really badass, and I am keeping the lotus plant which is part of the attachment watered!

    Got my crimson version today. Looks great! I find the lid becomes unspeakably hot when using the SiC so I'll wait for the glass top to use it. However the quartz works great with the ever-last atty.

    Dear Carta Owners and Experts :-)

    Any thoughts or advice if i should get the crimson carta set or if i should prefer a standard Carta plus eventually an everlast Atomizer?

    As i am in europe i have not so much interest in having to do warranty etc....

    Thanks in advance :bowdown:

    The glass tops from Focus V are starting to get sent out this week, I got my notification.

    As always you should message support to see if you're on the list to receive them just in case.

    Beta buyers should get a glass and ceramic top once that one comes out.

    He seems to be more active these days on the subreddit so I'd head there for any communication with the actual company, either there or through IG DMs or of course the official website support system.

    Ok, iOS guys. My app stopped working which I guess happens weekly? Do I need to do the whole process over again or is there a shortcut?

    Just keep the app password you got from the apple web site in a text document in your impactor app folder. Each week load up itunes, plug your phone to your PC, wait for it to sync. Run impactor.exe and then drag and drop the carta app to the impactor window. It'll ask for your email and password but the password is the APP pass you saved to a text file.

    It gets pretty quick doing it every 8 days. At least it's not every 7 days.... :(

    I also bought a cheap android tracphone from Walmart. The app downloads to the phone but won’t connect to my base. Same base I use to control by the app on my iPhone. Direct from android phone Bluetooth Carta rejects the connection

    Is the Crimson a limited release it will it be getting a wider release eventually? Does the white one come with the new Everlast atomizer? Or do I need to buy that separately?

    I believe the Crimson is the only one currently coming with the EL atty and a SIC as well as Ti, quartz and ceramic. But only 1000 were made I think. A blue one is coming soon but not sure of the details.

    Base Carta and Rio above.

    iOS users can now search "Carta Browser" on the app store and download a beta of the new webapp.

    Once you download it click the top url bar and change the website to focusvcarta.com.

    I like the temperature layout on this one better than the old style temp control and the one on the Android app.

    Give it a go works great on my iPad so far.

    What’s this thing like with tacky concentrates and live resin? Is it difficult to load properly? I’ve seen stuff about having the load creep up the walls and onto the heating element? It’s particularly for live resin I want it.

    If need be you can unscrew the lid and take out the cup to make loading it easier. I have never had anything go over the top of my cup but others have. I don’t draw real hard though.

    The Eternal Quartz v2 Carta insert is actually pretty good!

    I've not been using SiC still until we get better tops but LOL at the glass tops that were sent out and showing up on Reddit.

    So now I'll probably just be looking foward to the ceramic ones.

    But the EQ v2 is nice a little bit thicker than stock quartz insert and it has the wider base with the Splash guard it will definitely help with spillover I haven't had any problems with that yet!

    The EQ inserts are awesome! Cleanup with one side of a qtip, no sharp corner where it meets the bottom. Sic cleans up great too, I just prefer the quartz at the moment. Also, I like the EQ marble cap better then the EQ hollow bubble cap for the Carta, heavier so it sits on top better and slightly more restrictive as I found the bubble cap needed more finger carbing. All that being said, the stock cap works fine, lol.

    I've been using my MJ Arsenal bubble cap with mine as I have some of their mini rigs and the bubble cap they made for them is a good size for the Carta.

    But yeah clean up on the EQ is real nice hasn't chazzed or discolored on me yet, the stock quartz gets a bit cloudy after awhile.

    Also clean up is ez pz to on the SiC, I haven't been using them in the Carta but I have been using the SiC as a banger insert on one of my rigs and I can say the flavor and heat retention is really good far better than just Quartz but not too Carta related besides the insert itself.

    The teased ceramic cap looks great on the subreddit with the frosted stock glass as well, my only concern is they need to include a silicone style grip or ring around it because that thing will get mad hot using the SiC insert.
