So people have paid for this and now it's a 3 month delay? I'd be asking for my $$$ back real fast!
yeah i'm gonna go cancel the order, i tried to wait patently but this is getting out of hand, another month of waiting without any guarantees.
While you're patiently waiting for this amazing vape to come out, you can pick up this handsome Vaporfection polo shirt for only $55.50 now at vaporfection.com
Yeah advertise for something we know nothing about!
with a steal of a deal like that, i dunno why we are even talking about vaporizers
That shirt looks like something they'd make the employees wear in the 'Vaporfection store' at your local strip mall. It always amazes me when people are willing to pay good money for a shirt that provides some company with free advertising. It's like the car dealer that screws you as much as possible on the price, then expects you to drive around, advertising the dealer with a decal and license plate holder on the back.
@VaporNinja - i hope that was a touch of sarcasm you were displaying. this company doesn't have the charisma, coolness and emotional connection with FC as with the cloud people. i wouldn't pay to advertise for them.
hmmmm ... that also sounds like Apple, eh? it's the power of the brand.
well I officially had it with vaporfection. the company is full of BS. I emailed them to check on the status, delayed again, so what do they do. They keep on pushing me to buy a Vivape, your mivape is delayed but hey spend another $400 and you can get the vivape shipped out today, hahah what a joke. so I finally told them to fuck off and gave me a refund and guess what, the fucking made me pay the paypal fee to get my fucking money back after they have kept it for 2 months interest free. What a fucking bunch of asshats. So don't gave in to their pretty looking website because they are full of it. I will prolly make a report to the BBB, I'm that friggin mad.
edit: full amount now showing up in paypal, so I have to take that part out.
edit: glad it was just a mix up but yeh that would've been fuct up
Much thanks dude, I will never ever buy a product from this company.
for the first few email exchanges they even called me by the wrong name, plus they never used any agents or reps name, so I don't even know who I'm talking to, I even pointed that out to them and they didn't even seem to care.
here is an example of the emails.
Sorry we've been so swamped with our focus on deliveries of the viVape that we haven't had time to respond to the miVape questions. The miVape is not available yet, and it was delayed when our preproduction testing showed that we needed a battery modification to improve time of use, unfortunately these thing can happen when your committed to being the best. As before we are only taking priority wait list orders at this time. We will have an update on the miVape for you next week. However we understand your frustration, and will gladly process an immediate refund. Or offer you special deal on the viVape for immediate delivery for only $100 more and ship free, without losing your early miVape delivery position. Just let us know whats best for you. Merry Christmas! YFAV

my name is not alex for one and $100 more is $400, which is the retail price for the vivape anyways. actually it may even add up to more.
Man thats so FAIL!
Thanks for the heads up iloveb00bs. All interest in this vape is gone.
ok I got to make a correction about the paypal fees, just check it and full amount is showing up. so I gotta take that part out. but the original refund receipt shows differently. still i'm very disappointed in the overall experience, I just really feel that they should of been upfront about everthing, instead of putting "product available, shipment begins xxx", when in actually the product is nowhere even close to being finished yet alone shipping. or atleast take pre-orders instead of taking peoples money and making them wait without any real release/ship date.
just wanna clear things up, i'm not nocking the product. its just the customer service. i feel like i'm getting these automated responses, its like they don't care. its like sorry your product is delayed yet again, so buy this other vape too since we have that in stock.
im still interested in this thing
sorry to hear about all of that iloveboobs...that's got to be very frustrating man...
has anyone heard any updates on this baby?
I talked to one of their reps a couple weeks ago (after purchasing the viVape). He called because I ordered the black viVape and they only had white in stock, so I took the white one. While I had him on the phone I asked about the miVape. He told me they were still testing battery life. They didn't want to release it until they were assured of a lengthy battery life. He gave me no indication as to how much longer it would be (their website still says deliveries will resume in March).
I haven't dropped the $$ to get on the waiting list (Alan from HI and the VXC gang didn't ask me for $$ to get on their waiting lists). And since I just ordered a MFLB, I'm going to wait until the miVape is out. If the miVape ends up working as well as the viVape does, I'll drop the $$ no problem.
Unless you burned that bridge, I might write them back on this one. The way that is written, it could be saying they're offering you the viVape for ONLY $100 more, plus you still get the miVape. That would be an incredibly generous offer, for them to make and one, I would jump on in a minute.
Think about it... you might have passed up a viVape for $100...
HIGHLY highly doubtful. I'd bet my vxc preorder spot on it!
Vaporfection is supposed to release the MiVape ( to preorders) according to their site last month. I preordered last month. Has any one received one yet? Looking forward to receiving, and adding to my arsenal of vapes?
mod note-Did you even look for the miVape topic before starting a question thread? Threads merged.
Sorry I scanned thru specific models and missed it. Ill use search in future. Thanks
I wouldn't hold your breathe, it's been delayed more times than I care to think about.
When did you preorder?
I haven't, but it was supposed to launch last November if I remember correctly.
Still in pre-production testing. It may be a few more months is my guess.
