Commandos are able to carry a Power Generator. Power Generator main stat is Aim. This device has Tech Power.
Shadows & Guardians & Sages are able to carry a Force Focus. Force Focus main stat is either Strength or Willpower. This device has Force Power.
Shadows & Guardians & Vanguards can be Tanks & therefore all three of them can carry a Shield Generator. Shield Generator main stats are Willpower or Strength or Aim. These devices will have either Tech Power or Force Power depending upon the stats in it.
Smugglers & Sentinels carry two weapons and do NOT have the ability to carry an Off-hand Focus/Generator/Shield.

When comparing a customizable Force Focus with a customizable Shield Generator, the difference between them is the Shield Generator's 5% chance to absorb 20% of incoming damage verses the Focus (or Power Generator) which have more Force Power. They both take the same inserts giving them both the same stats.

Example: I looked at the GTN and compared Level 29 Focus/Shield/Generator.
- The Focus had 187 Force Power.
- The Shield had 143 Force Power.
- The Generator had 187 Tech Power.

Evaluation
At 28th level, one tick of Double Strike was 250 according to my tool tip. (I will be using the above 29th level off-hand devices for comparison purposes)
One attack in 20 = 5%. _ 20% of 250 = 50. _ A point of power is 0.23 damage points (no Diminishing Return).
- If I am the one getting whacked the 20 times, I am able to shield 50 points of damage if I am carrying a Shield.
- If I am the one doing the whacking, I am able to do an additional 202 points of damage if I am carrying the Focus. [187-143=44 _ 44x20=880 _ 880x0.23=202.4]
- If I am in Combat technique with the +15% shield bonus: I am able to shield +20% or 4 of the above attacks and absorb 50 points of each attack. I shield 200 points.
Surprisingly impressive how close those two are. If I am a tank I take 200 points less damage. If I am DPS, I deliver 202 points more damage.

The Sages don't have a choice, they have to use a Force Focus - but the Shadows do have a choice. But the numbers say go Focus if you are DPS.

Also of Note: If you buy a customizable Off-hand device from the GTN, you will need to be higher level than its "Required Level ##" number. You CANNOT take out the inserts and replace them with lower level ones and be able to use the Off-Hand device at a lower level :-(
