    My WPA took two weeks to arrive in Australia. There was a backlog when I ordered as well. You'll love the WPA. You can use it with the Crafty and Mighty as well.

    Look what I just got in email from Vivant:

    The time has come!

    We are excited to finally announce the release of the new V3 top caps. The first shipment of the new V3 top caps has finally arrived.

    The new V3 top caps has a newly redesigned top cap and features an upgraded plastic material called PEEK which is one of the strongest available....

    Looks like they are sending them out to customers who's top caps were faulty.

    i checked on what is Peek on wiki.
    It says

    Glass temperature 143 °C
    melting point 343 °C

    I didt not understand this , it will start changing its physical look on what, glass temperature or at melting poont

    I just noticed a weird thing with my Alternate. I set it for 388 but the temp readout went to 392! What's up with that @Vivant ?

    I still am on my original top piece/mouthpiece assembly, and using my unit daily.
    I have never yet used the improved top.
    I received an anonymous donation the other day, addressed to me at "Paying It Forward"...
    A brand new sealed Vivant Alternate.
    There was no return address on the box.
    Sadly, I charged the battery and brought the unit to a patient that was waiting, and once I installed the battery, the unit would not turn on at all.
    I would ask donor for receipt, but do not know who it was.
    Since the box and all in it are new and unused, I have contacted Vivant through the message system here, to learn how this matter can be resolved.
    Hoping to spread the Vivant Alternate love with this patient soon!

    Here I am waiting for my dhgate package. It took 15 days to ship my order to Poland.
    I'm gonna get it in a hour or two. It's gonna be my first convection able vape. My 3 fully charged LG HG2 cells, me and my weed are SOO ready to give it first shot.

    I knew the rules, but had forgottten about holding + and - simultaneously
    Yet somehow I managed to do just that... probably while I was fumbling to update the device.
    Sorry to waste your time.
    I will see that the unit goes out to patient tomorrow.

    Heaven_Gifts are still sending out the V1.0 mouthpieces. They are taking a week to reply to messages too.

    Got my V3 cap in the mail, looks like there's some sort of vent on the top for cooling. Hopefully this prevents cracking.

    Can you post some pics please? Looks you have the first one out there.
    How much did they charge you to send out the v2.0 mouthpiece?

    Thanks. You're a legend.

    Now you need to take another one for the team and test that baby!

    I'll get back to you on the performance. One thing I've noticed is that the catch on the edge of the CU doesn't line up too well with the groove on the actual unit. Meaning every time I unscrew the cap it latches on to the battery door, causing a noise and sometimes even dislodging the door on one side. Seeing that the door is pretty flimsy already I think it will break with more use.

    That's not a good sign. The door is flimsy enough.

    I agree. You just have to get used to squeezing the door a bit so it lines up better.

    Nothing, I sent them a picture of the melted MP and they sent me a new alternate. Heaven gifts via DHgate

    @Vivant How much is postage to Sydney Australia? The site says "Your cart has been modified and the shipping rate you previously selected no longer applies. Please select a new rate.

    There are no shipping methods available for your cart or destination."
