Of course it has value, but value is subjective, and that's a fact. A very expensive car, for example, is never worth the price to me. If I won mega millions in a lottery, my perspective might change. If using a vape this expensive makes you feel safer or whatever, then maybe it's worth the $ for you. But it'll never be worth that kind of price to me, unless maybe I win that jackpot. If safe materials are my prime consideration, I'm already there with the Cloud, which includes an HT I can also use with other vapes. Got it with a $100 Vapolution for that matter. What the miniVap provides, value wise, for the extra $500, isn't worth to me and won't be for the vast majority of vaporists.
