    I'm curious to know how much it actually costs Vivant to make each Alternate? $5 per vape, $10 per vape, $20 per vape?

    Are you looking for raw material costs, or costs that include packaging, advertising, facilities, engineering, internet hosting, legal, etc? It takes a tremendous effort for any of these small businesses to get product to market and support it while staying viable. There is so much competition.. just look at all the vape choices available.

    Raw material costs as well as the other costs. Yes, very competitive vape market. But really just curious on the cost to buy the raw materials and assemble the product.

    How are the V3 caps and body of the vape holding up for users? How about any chemical taste/weird smells even after burn offs? I'm very poor and have a chance to buy this off of a friend for 15 dollars

    I would have to agree that you should accept the offer.
    Look at it, and be sure it works.

    It’s a damn good vaporizer for what it is. And for $15 is just ridiculous. This thing actually outperforms my Crafty and I paid like $60 for the Alternate compared to $225 for the Crafty.

    Welcome to the community!

    The S&B Mighty is a very well designed and made vape with few equals, I like many other FC'ers look forward to a design refresh that supports user swappable 18650 batteries.

    Price and swappable batteries are two things the Vivant Alternate has going for it. @Vivant like any new company with brand new products like the Alternate is going through some growing pains. The heft, feel of quality you have in your Mighty is not echoed with the Alternate, but at a third of the cost should that be expected?

    I find the ease of use, quality of the vapor and ease of draw with the Alternate to be excellent. There are significant concerns in this thread with the quality of the plastics used and potential for off gassing. There is also discussion as with any vape about a separation between the air path and the electronics/battery. This separation is something the Mighty does very well. It's not as clear with the Alternate, but nor is it clear how much of a problem this is. The FDA regulates Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS), but not herbal vapes. Herbal vapes are not regulated. This could be one of the issues which could be addressed by removing Cannabis from Schedule 1.

    For me it may be a huge mistake, I've thrown caution to the wind. I exercise as pain permits multiple days a week, eat well and have a physician who believes strongly in managed care. Is it better that I am vaping from unregulated products over combusting, I think so. Will I be proven to be wrong at some future date, very possible.

    In the interim the Vivant Alternate was perfect for my needs. I was looking for a fairly inexpensive vape I could take and leave in Jamaica. It needed to be easy to use and not something I would have to send back for battery replacement. I could return to Jamaica to find it was stolen or damaged, but thus far it has been a champ. I've thought about buying one for use back here in the states, we'll see. Respect! YaMon

    The fenix weecke in one of his rebranded forms could be a good choice, I alternate the alternate with the fenix and the arizers.

    By replacing the screen on the 3.0 topcap with an Arizer Bucket screen you can turn your Alternate into a mean, green, convection-machine! Great effects, worth the try!

    You can find it on the Vivant website, if that's too expensive you can always check here. ;)
