Vivant Alternate Vaporizer is often referred to as a budget version of Crafty Vaporizer and it’s quite true. The device not only looks but also works almost exactly like the legendary, portable vaporizer from Storz & Bickel. Find out from out text how to make the most of your Vivant Alternate!
At first glance, Vivant Alternate Vaporizer looks much like the famous Crafty Vaporizer – it’s got a similar shape, size, cover finish and the cooling unit. They both work based on the same method – the herbs are heated both with a stream of hot air (convection) and the walls of the heating chamber (conduction). The main difference between these two vaporizers is the quality of the vapor and materials, as well as the price – Alternate is half of Crafty’s price. Below, we give you some tips on how to improve the performance of Vivant Alternate Vaporizer so that it’s even closer to the quality of Crafty Vaporizer.
Firmware update and settings change
Not many people know that, but every electronic vaporizer has its firmware, which is the internal operating system. In some vaporizers, you can update the firmware and improve the performance of the device. This is the case of Vivant Alternate and we strongly recommend that you use this option. It’s not a complicated process and it takes less than 5 minutes. First, you have to download the new firmware from the manufacturer’s website – you’ll find it under this link. Once you download it, connect your vaporizer to your computer with a USB cable and run the app that completes the update. Simply follow the instructions on the screen. The latest firmware lets you change the automatic switch-off time from 1 minute (which is a bit annoying) to even 5 minutes, which makes the use of the device much easier. In order to change this parameter, switch on your Vivant Alternate, then press and hold simultaneously the ‘on’ button and the ‘+’ button. Now, you can change the time with the + and –. The update gives you many more new options to change e.g. the power consumption level.
Use a higher capacity battery and get a spare one
A low power battery is the biggest problem in Crafty Vaporizer. So is in the case of Vivant Alternate Vaporizer. The main difference, though, is that Vivant Alternate is powered by a replaceable, standard, 18650 type battery. The original battery that comes with Vivant Alternate is a Sony battery, with 2100 mAh capacity, which is enough for about 30-50 minutes of constant use, depending on the temperature you set. However, a standard battery can be swapped for another one of the same type but a higher capacity, like e.g. the battery in DaVinci IQ, with the capacity of 3500 mAh. It lets you prolong the battery life to even 80 minutes, which is quite a big difference. It’s also a good idea to get a spare battery so that you can swap a used one for a full one whenever you need to do so. It’s a very comfortable solution, especially for those who vape a lot on the go.
Change the cooling unit
Vivant Alternate and Crafty are similar in one more aspect – they both feature vapor cooling units of the same size, but a different construction. However, you can swap the unit from Alternate for the cooling unit from Crafty – it’s sold separately as an accessory for this vaporizer and it’s inexpensive. This change guarantees a better cooling of the vapor so that it’s smoother and gentler to your throat. This type of ‘tuning’ really pays off because with a small investment you can improve the quality of your vaping experience.
