I was thinking the same mwa...What really bites the big one is, about 5 years ago my best freind who was a Jeweler, was trying to sell me his Milling machine for $500...GOD I wish I would have bought that thing !!!!
chrisz-there are other vendors selling the Vivi's, a few with replacement heads in stock...
Since I live just 20 Min from "Got Vapes" Sugarland Office, I feel compeled to order from them...
Even though my order must be shipped from NY...MAJOR BUMMER !!!!

Sitting here vaping on my stock out of the box vivi's, yup thats right got two of them and been vaping them everyday all day for two weeks and cant put them down. Been following this thread from day one and hate to read the problems people are having.
I hope when the new ones come out they will be as good or better and everyone will be happy, thanks gotvapes for all your efforts.

Yeah, when they work, they work good. And, most of them actually do work. I think I mentioned it before, but out of 12 heads (I ended up with four tanks), two were bad, one was iffy, and the rest work just fine.

Taking the metal stopper off the top of the atty assembly might have worked for him but mine is still in and after replacing everything else in the atty with fluxo parts it works like a beast..I think the problem with mine and many others on this thread was the coil and the shoddy workmanship by vision/whoever on wrapping and testing the coil..ohms were almost always off..one of mine was mushed against the sidewall..then they put a ton of wick in it that seemed to do the opposite of what youd want wick to do since after taking apart the wicks were burnt from lack of liquid getting to the coil. Only using at 3.4-3.7 before anyone says high voltage.. Badkolo said he didnt have any part in the atty design on these but on the overall design and the overall design is rocking and when I use gotvapes parts inside the atty the whole unit is rocking.
My brother came over and seen me messing with it..says to me..man it seems like theres alot involved in that (ecigs) I always see you messing with something and you always have different stuff..I told him it seems that way because Ecigs can be as simple or as complicated as you want them to be..I like to tinker and modify them so thats what I do..but you can also buy simple batteries and prefilled cartos that are as simple as twist on a new carto and keep your battery charged.
Point being..I think many or at least some of you would agree its been fun following this thread and ripping apart the nova
long post i know just waking up still cut me some slack

its fun, its educational, its keeps us all busy and away form analogs and it leads to breakthroughs, it also leads to many more products hitting the pipeline at a faster rate then before. The tinkering eventually helps to improving products and to be honest I rather improve a product then let it die, you never know what it could lead too and past errors can and have lead to future winners.

Well my heads were doing OK as well, but after watching the Rocking Robin video I re-wicked one and it is now even better. Really easy to do - easier than a re-buildable, well a lot easier than some! I think this makes a good innovative product even better.
