If putting in one of the batteries you mentioned that was fully charged externally didn't trip the Protected Mode it's time for a repair.Done all you mentioned above - still that text "Protected" after 15 sec and you can't even set temperature after that. Only shutdown works.
That's ridiculous; too bad, man. Better get your money back, two defective units is definitely a no-no. Mine still works like a charm, although I did need to use a keyboard vacuum cleaner to unclog the bottom of the chamber once.
Never experienced this "protected mode" myself... how did you use your Focus in term of t° and sessions lenght (and back to back)?
I'm sorry sonic.... Must be frustrating as hell. I still use both the OG and Pro and never experienced anything like that. With hurricane Irma getting ready to turn my power off I'm glad I have them both along with a stash of 18650's.
Nice! Thanks for the follow-up! You gotta love FC and it's members when it comes to this kind of sharing.Hello there community!
I got response from supplier.
Both devices had scratches in chamber.
That protected mode is kind of bug or future whether PCB is checking the chamber for micro scratches.
So don't use sharp things when cleaning the chamber.
They will disable that function in new batch.
You will need uprotected high drain batteries, would recommend some that are capable of 15A current atleast. Brands LG, samsung, sony etc. , also go for flattops:It's time for me to replace the batteries for my beloved Focus Pro, I checked Puffitup.com and they didn't have any. I was going to order off of ebay but not sure how particular the batteries are. Are any 18650 3200mah batteries going to work? Is there anything I should look out for? Best place to buy them?
I saw it on Puffitup.com, they had some really great deals on the old ones, I'm guessing to close them out. I really want to get the new Pro S model. I love everything about my Focus Pro, except the amount of herb I burn through with it.It looks like a new version of the Pro is avalaible, it's called the "S":
Higher max t°, updated electronic (?), venting hole in the battery compartment, improved heating system (more stable t° and more even heat for best abv), 1mm shorter, brushed aluminium body.
I tried to ask for one but since I don't get a lot of time now and since my vas seems cured I spent less time here... so I don't know if I will make anymore reviews but i bet there will be a lot of vaporists to do it.
Just for info the Focus is one vape I wouldn't let to go, it's far to be the best but it does the job very well!
That's true, the GH does take less herb.It's a very reliable vape. I don't think it's a weed hog but a GH will offer you lot of hits even with a pinch where the Focus will need a full bowl (2-3 pinches) to work well.
It depends your usage and the money you are ready to spend. The "S" get a wider t° range which is nice if you like to vape some concentrates. But, all in all, it's pretty the same vaporizer, safer (cause the vented battery cap) and better looking design.@PPN The Focus Pro Vaporizer is <$90 right now. Is the Pro still worth picking up or would we be much happier spending the extra money on a brand new S?
If someone asked me the same about the Arizer Solo 1 vs 2 I would tell you the cost savings are not worth it. Digital display, better air flow, incredible battery, smaller size, etc.. You're going to be a lot happier with the Solo 2. Doesn't sound like the changes are nearly as drastic however.
