    Hello @mash , Sorry for the inconvenience of the missing promo code via the email sent out to our subscribers. The correct code to use will be VIV420. The promo code you supplied on here is also active, it was a promo code for the Facebook users. So either promo code is fine on our direct website. As for our authorized resellers, they are having their own promotions and it is out of our control. Thank you!


    Hello @Meach, sorry for the inconvenience. You can DM me your email and I can manually make sure it is included on our mail blasts.


    Please feel free to contact me with any questions, Thank you! -Emily

    I took advantage of the lovely discount from @Vivant today and bought an Alternate to add to my Vape arsenal (a trio of Boundless vapes and MFLBs).

    Has anyone purchased directly from them and had it shipped to Canada before? I'm wondering if I'll run into any duties or tax surprises at the door.

    Also is there a recommended source for 18650 30A batteries in Canada?

    I've been reading the thread so far to get ready for the new addition, but are there any suggestions on how to avoid the overheating lid problem? Does it get caused by multiple sessions back to back and I should let it cool between the sessions, or ?

    I just pulled the trigger on this, for $75 why not. I was about to re-buy my Mighty after it was stolen. If this can replace it for less great! If not I will give it to a friend and get a Mighty :) First flower vape I have purchased in a while.

    Oh, I knew about that - Somehow I thought those extra things were standard, I thought I saw them when browsing other retailers last night. I must be mistaken, it was late. I know it comes with one battery, but I'll be adding extras so I never run out of juice.

    What is the accessory pack actually? Is that the concentrate pad and screens?

    @Vivant , how does one activate the above mentioned discount of 42%? I've found several of the links on the vivant.com website to be malfunctioning,e.g., disallowing promo codes.

    Can you assist please?

    Thanks!

    Hello everyone, This is my first post here, so please be gentle and point out if I make nay mistakes, I mean no harm or disrespect to the community, nor do I intend on breaking any rules here.
    I switched to a vaporizer from analogs about 7 months ago now, The vivant aternate is my first herb vaporizer however(Wanted to get off of combustion completely)
    I received my Vivant Alternate on the 4th of April, purchased from heavengifts @ dhgate. My experience:
    1. No plastic smell/odor from the get go.
    2. Loved the vapor quality and the flavor, I didn't need to force myself to stay off of combustion, I was super happy with the vivant alternate.
    3. However, In about 3 days, of 5 sessions or so per day(never above 400), I started to see a couple of cracks develop on the top cap, I still continued to use it though, no issues there
    4. By the 11th of April, about a week of use later, there are cracks on both side and one on top where the vivant logo is & at this point, i could no longer use it because now there was an air leak in the top cap, so when i was drawing in vapor, some air would also come in(through the leak in the top cap) along with the vapor.

    Pictures linked below:

    https://ibb.co/cKY285 <- side of topcap
    https://ibb.co/fGFtFk <- other side of topcap
    https://ibb.co/hax7ak <-top of topcap


    I read about some people having top cap cracking issues with their alternates on here, So I didn't go beyond 400, but the top cap still cracked. @Vivant I loved the experience of the device and right now i've sort of patched the top cap with something called pidilite mseal and use it only at around 370-375 for no more than one 2minute session at a time.

    What should my next course of action be, I believe the ones purchased from heavengifts have like a 3month warranty. I'll be super grateful if someone can point me to what my next step should be, I want to stay off combustion for good.

    Thanks a ton, Please point out if I made any mistakes.

    @Vivant I asked this question previously but it seems to have been missed each time; is it safe for people to be using these units? We still haven't got an answer.

    I used my unit twice and got very sick. I haven't used it since and have been waiting for a response.

    viv420

    I tried it and it works......






    I think someone here messaged hevengifts on the dhgate site and sent them the pics of the cracks and heavengifts sent out a new one out for them for free....

    I would try to message them......

    I was told by a little birdie to remove the green flap inside the head and that would prevent any cracking from occurring. The physics of air flow!

    Anybody tried this yet? My unit is in a different state this week.

    I removed the green flap because it would kinda seal itself shut when it became coated in resin. I had to suck extra hard :brow: and the seal would finally break once it warmed up a little.

    I don't know if removing the flap is going to keep caps from cracking but I hope so.

    I have been keeping the temp at 365f, limiting use to 3 minutes, and removing the top after a session for cooldown.

    @IckiestOfTheSticky Thank you for the charger, and Emily @Vivant thank you for helping.
    I have one community member that no charger for his 2nd hand Alternate, so I was there to help with a spare!
    Best part of all is my firmware has been updated!
    I feel so new and fresh ....... an updated guy!:lol:

    Damn that is a great discount code so I pulled the trigger like 15 minutes ago! Thank you @Vivant for such a generous discount! I didn't use the FC discount since the 42% was a no brainer. for the people here who order on 420 code, do we still get the extra battery since we are FC'ers? If not, I understand, the discount code was the thing that won me over. I have been patiently waiting for a couple of the issues to get resolved, but this was too tempting! Damn you VAS! I just got a DynaVap M for my sister's birthday last week. So this baby is being delivered to work. I have a Crafty and since the Alternate is very similar I might be putting the Crafty for sale before it has the dreaded battery issues (only 8hrs on it). Now I just have to be patient!

    I dont think you can stack codes, but the 42.0% discount was too good for me to pass up also. You do get the extra mouthpiece and accessory kit though, which is nice (and insurance against cracking mouthpieces). I ordered mine at 1am on 4/20 and it arrived, in Canada, at 1pm on 4/21. Talk about speedy shipping!

    @Vivant I've read mention of new mouthpieces, were the 4/20 batch the originals or new?

    I've been lurking the past few days, while reading non-stop about portable vapes. I narrowed my choices down to the G Pen Elite, Boundless CF and Vivant Alternate.

    Like others, I've been concerned about the melting/cracking plastic and plastic fumes in the Alternate. But it seems to be the best of the 3 when you get a quality unit. And after speaking with Emily a couple times yesterday, I can say I am very confident that Vivant stands behind their products and will do whatever is necessary to ensure the Alternate works as advertised.

    Thanks to everyone here for their detailed posts. And a special thanks to Emily and Vivant for their outstanding CS. I purchased the Alternate yesterday at an incredible price and should receive it early next week. I will share my experience with the group.
