    Ok, so I just got the Focus Vape in the mail and have only used it a couple of times. I love it, but the video in comment #9 showed a metal bong attachment piece that did not come with the one I received. Does anyone know where I could find/buy one?
    I was really hoping to use this with my glass, and I can without that attachment, but im sure it would be much smoother and easier if I had that attachment.
    Thanks!

    Ok so I've been using my Focus for about 5 days now and it has already become one of my favorite vapes. It heats up to 200C in about 28 seconds on a full battery. The airflow is excellent and I love that you can adjust it. I have an Arizer Air and I think I like the Focus better. It heats up faster than the Air and produces more vapor. I find the Focus produces almost as much vapor as the Mighty which I also got last week. The only thing that I don't like is that the little mouthpiece screen gets clogged pretty easy. It's easy to clean though and only takes a second.

    That is somewhat improved by replacing the screen with a standard mesh, although it still clogs more than you'd want.

    I love my Focus, have been using it daily since January.

    I picked up the water pipe attachment and its awesome!

    I just leave it on all the time and use it instead of the glass mouthpiece.

    It is actually more functional to carry around as I found the glass mouthpiece to always come off in my pocket.

    I find it easier to clean (dunk it in a cap of ISO) , no scooby snacks have gotten through the holes,no screens and filters to deal with and clean, and it doesn't heat up all that much.

    Check it out!

    I think I'm going to pick up a WPA for the Focus soon too. It should hit really nice out of my fbomb. I think this vape could be the new flowermate.

    I think most of us have experienced the same MP issue with any number of the PEN form factor vapes....I've found a useful solution with these:

    Just purchased this vape. Im very new to vaping. Had a MFLB and lets just say it was cool for a week and i went straight back to a bong. Im hoping this thing is nice. Was on the Grasshopper buy and wait game but canceled it until they get it together.... Im gonna use it in Hvy Glass straight tube with shower head perc when at home and obviously without the tube when out and about. Any suggestions to a rookie vaper?

    When you use water .... Do everything at Max Temp plus 30 seconds and wait at least 15 seconds between hits.

    When not using water....find your sweet spot, plus 30 seconds and wait at least 15 seconds between hits.

    What do you mean "plus 30 seconds"?

    After fully charging - With nothing in the oven....set it to high temp, and allow it to turn itself off after running at high. You could occasionally blow into the mouthpiece to force any bad air out. I would do 2 or 3 heat cycles like this and then do a few more cycles while mouth pumping inwards like a cigarette until you no longer taste anything like new electronics. This vape has little smell to begin with.

    I mean...once the temp is first reached (Temp being either your sweet spot temp or max temp for water use) wait an additional 30 seconds to allow a heat soak of the herb.

    Like most conduction vapes of this type reaching the initial requested temp so quickly means the herb itself is not optimally heated. I'm not saying it won't produce vapor upon reaching the initial temp selected but waiting at least 30 seconds more will give the herb a chance to optimally absorb the oven's heat and should increase vapor production.

    Since @Crow is new to vaping my suggestions are meant to give him a high end baseline to compare against when learning to dial in his own needs. Waiting the extra few seconds will give him a taste for the top end production at that temp and he can then scale the wait back as he sees fit ....... or he may decide he likes the extra production enough to wait the extra seconds.

    For example...my Solo can produce decently at level 4 once it reaches and stabilizes the temp. The first hit will be decent but the second hit will be stronger by having absorbed more heat via the first hit and additional oven time.

    Another reason for the wait is that I was able to overrun the oven temp at times. Especially when I used a bubbler. By waiting the extra seconds there will be more initial heat applied to the herb and this may lesson the overrun of the oven temp.

    I was tryin hard to buy a focus a few months ago but there was NO one shipping to the states. I have an air and this looked like a better version with the air path. The bottom layout on the focus looks so sketchy lol.

    I have the battery charging and decided to take a look at the vape. I unscrewed the mouth piece. A tiny metal screen, a piece that looks like a pencil eraser(not sure its rubber) but white with holes and a gold or copper piece with threads fell out. I assume they go into the mouth but which order? Lol sorry if this a dumb question

    The white piece with the 7 holes fits inside the brass looking piece. The brass piece with the screen facing downward and with the white piece facing upwards is screwed into the mouthpiece you screwed off.

    I wrote to the guy at PIU and he's putting accessories on the site as they get them in stock. There should be a bunch of stuff there now.
