Anyone having different heat up times using the app vs no app? Almost instant with app and like 3-5s without.
App bug or falty base?

Havent used my carta in a few months since my attys died. Wanted to get some replacement coils, but wanted to check if I might have to send it in.

Managed to get in contact on ig.
Seems that they are just trying to fob me of.
They are just suggesting I clean my rig and keep trying it until someone from support emails me back.
So frustrated by this whole process... How can a company charge 300 dollars for a product including warrenty, then not honour that warrenty :bang:.
I saw they also changed the warranty, the everlast is only warrantied for 1 year now

Little update:
Another fc member told me that he had the same issueand had to send his unit in to be fixed.
Today I finally get an email answer by focus v support telling me that they have never heard of that problem before, but will tell their app team to fix the bug..yeah

Not sure if its been posted but Randall apparently bought out sourcevapes a while ago and that is his new company... the new carta or The Sourcevape orb versa seems to be a combo of the peak and carta. Looks like the same shitty atomizers the carta used, with the glass similar to the peaks cone.

Additions not on the carta or peak: digital display, temp control, NO Bluetooth or app, and a removable airpath

And still using plastic caps? He never learns, having issues with plastic since being in boundless and still doing the same...
 
b0,
I received an email from a company called high five who I purchased an enail from a couple years ago. I will preface by saying I've never had any issues with my enail and have thoroughly enjoyed it so my opinion is probably biased. I've had 3 Cartas so far, I'm on my second warranty replacement so to say my experience has been bad is an understatement, hopefully this thing is better than what's currently on the market and people won't have to suffer anymore. I just wanted to share with you guys and see what your thoughts are on the device. I also think they only sent emails to people who've purchased from them before as I couldn't find any other info online. There's a video in the email of them measuring out a gram of wax and this thing handles it like an enail but I can't seem to download the video. Per their email it says releasing early 2020 so not sure when it's going to drop as it says they're still working on some of the design/programming. I copied the specsfrom the email

Hi there. What is the size of the bowl in mm? The outside diameter and height, ideally measured with calipers? thanks!

Man, I screwed up. I ordered the emerald Carta thinking it would naturally come with the extra buckets and such that the crimson one did being as they are both special edition. I was too baked and just bought it. The next day when I went back to read, the Crimson was sold out, and I realized that I didn't really get anything extra besides a green paint job. Sad day in my world.

Well my Carta arrived today and the atomizer won't heat up after using it a handful of times. This was the emerald green so came with the Everlast atomizer. I guess they have duds coming out here and there. Hopefully they take care of me and I don't have to go too long out if commission.

Anyone find any replacement glass for these guys? I dig the spaceship look but wouldn't mind seeing other options.

No mate, still waiting for a reply. Shame really, they would of had a lifetime customer here
Same here. I finally gave up on the Carta now and am waiting for my Switch to be delivered. Really was my issue as I should never have been an early purchaser and waited a couple of years (like now) to buy. So many cracked caps, busted attys after 1 dab (1 had a wire cut waaaay short from factory and burned the thing up on first hit applied for warranty WITH PICS within a day of delivery got nada back), 2 bases sent until I got one that worked in the first place (they DID warranty that thank goodness) SIC that gave the shittiest taste/dust so I used it only a handful of times. After my Everlast (purchased with lifetime guarantee but apparently they changed it now LOL) went a month ago and no replacements to be found unless you find one for $70 which is no bueno for an atty. I did do the warranty applications when all the "takeover" kerfuffle was going on but still.. no excuse for shit like that imo. Onward to a better more reliable unit with good CS.

Now, to answer the last question ^ Elev8 had some nice glass for the Carta when I was looking last year. Cooper's Glass had a bunch of really neat glass for it but I just checked and it looks like he might have stopped making for the Carta and on to the Peak but you could also custom order.

Contacted support and the person sent me a picture of theirs and it looks similar. I'm guessing they were just punching these holes out with out much care because it's in an inconspicuous spot, which makes sense. Wanted to be sure nothing was broken.
