    I just picked this and the Incendio wax pen up. I don't vape a lot of flower, but I do have the Alternate and other than the mouthpiece mine works well. I am on my first alternate mouthpiece and it is finally starting to go. If Vivant sends me another thats great, if not I'll but a crafty one.

    Af far as the Vleaf is concerned, I will let you all know!

    I also picked up a V-leaf recently. I'm a sucker for budget vapes. I must say the build quality seems very good; all aluminum vs the cheap plastic from their Alternate models. I have only exhausted one battery cycle thus far (maybe 3-4 bowls). I lost count due to the number of times I had to restart the unit.

    The 90 second shutoff timer must include the heat-up time also. I only get two draws and maybe a third before the unit shuts off and I have to restart it to continue. Where I live there is a 4 way stop sign every mile. Every mile I have to hold the power button for two seconds, wait for another reheat cycle, get my two draws and repeat. What a pain in the butt. No beep or warning to tell you it's shutting off.

    Two hits, restart, repeat... I can restart 5-6 times before the bowl is wasted. I guess that's what you get for 50.00, Interactive Sessions...

    Great vid...as always!

    I got an early build of this thing and found it unusable because the shutoff timer was 90 seconds. Did they lengthen it for your production unit?

    Thanks Man!

    the shut off timer seems to be a couple minutes...that's the only annoyance i forgot to add (i believe)...BUT if it aint melting i'm happy!

    as soon as vapor production slows, I have to remeber to power it back on.

    I never had any issues with any melting anything(I’ve always ran my Alternate with the @Ratchett mighty wt adapter). As a matter of fact I’ve enjoyed the Alternate. This thing looks like it has real good cloud production. And that cost is crazy low. Really it’s a shame that Vivant had that 1 issue that seemed to plague the company with its first product release. I am on a backorder wait list for their Incendio so I’m hoping it’s as good as the rest of their products.

    Great Video @WakeAndVape. I appreciate the no surgar coating and straight to the point reviews. It’s a great attribute for a reviewer to have. IMO. Especially when these price tags are as high as they usually are.

    I have been using mine for a while. This is my goto vape that I tell people to buy now for a budget vape. The timer is annoying as hell, but for the money, you can't find a better flower vape IMO. I have already had a few people order them after hitting mine. My alternate is still going strong too! Of course, the cut off timer is annoying, but you just turn it on 3 times per session. It's like my girl, it has to be played with CONSTANTLY but she rewards you. LOL

    Just got ob today as a backup throw aroUnd vape. The unit looks kind of cumbersome. Is it pocketable?

    This looks really cool. Nice entry level vape. In my humble opinion this is not a pen style vape, it's a jumbo marker style vape.
    Need to keep my eye on this cause if it's good, it might be a great starter vape got friends and family.
    The timer sounds really annoying, actually.

    Needed a travel vape, got this for $41 shipped. I'd be sceptical, but it's got the @WakeAndVape seal of approval, good enough for me!

    Unreleased still?

    It reminds me of a vibrator.
    But the price point has me intrigued.

    :rockon: a good travel vape...especially if you have to 'toss it' it also works well with glass/water.

    I'll your thoughts on it after you have used it for a while!

    It’s kinda funny they sale it at $49 with free shipping(any order at or over $49) They also offer a discount of %20 using “valentines” which would save you $9. BUT free shipping is removed and they then charge $10 somthing for shipping. So it’s the only discount that I remember that would cost you more to use. It’s all at their website. Vivant.com

    OK Guys, Why does't this vape get more attention??? I mean you can get it shipped for under $50 and performance is solid! I have purchased 4 of these now and I am currently giving them to combustors to convert them!
    The timer is really the 1 big drawback, you DO have to press the button for 2 seconds every minute or so until the session is over. BUT for that minor inconvenience you get a powerful hybrid vape that rivals performance of vapes 3x the cost!

    This is my go to budget vape suggestion. Does anyone else know of another contender at this price point?

    I LOVE my dynavap and all of my torch vapes, but it's not good for a multi person session and I can't hand it to my mom, or some noob. I also suggest these to people who combust and don't want to invest much because they still smoke and don't "Need " a vape yet. Although I really like the ritual of a torch vape, most girls and older people with no dexterity do not. Plus torching your little weed device in non-legal states isn't exactly stealth... Not like I care about that though, I have a freaking Rig , torch and nail in my car!!! haha

    All in all I feel an electric, regulated, hybrid vape is the best for beginner vaporists and this fits the bill for under $50. No brainer. Maybe they will fix the timer to 3x as long?

    I picked up one of these for $40... not bad! For a cheap backup it's hard to beat. The bowl is really big, it's super easy to load/clean, has a WPA out of the box, and it's built really well. No complaints here

    Hi, got one trough the Classifieds here, that's a good vape in term of performances.Taste and clouds are on pair with its big brother!

    The mouthpiece is the only one big cons I can see (for the asked price), again this cheap plastic I hate!

    Is somebody found a replacement mp to pair with the V-Leaf? That's will be my main goal in order to improve the experience!
