    Was excited when ordered but...

    I'll start with the different settings. Lo, Mid, Auto Puff, and Auto Time. None of these settings fully vaporize the material put in this device. The product can be removed from the Alfa and put in another vaporizer, and still provide full puffs of vapor. The only setting that works, partially, is the High temp setting. Which makes the device feel like it's over heating, and becomes overly hot to the touch. Some people may find the Alfa too hot to hold on this setting. Even on High temp setting, this vaporizer does not produce a full exhale of vapor. Also takes up to 45 minutes of continuous use on this setting to change the visual of the -hb- used from green to brown. Less time used leaves the -hb- green, and still useable in other devices for vaporization. For a full charge, from empty (unable to turn on due to no charge), when timed with a stopwatch (phone) it took over 5 hours to reach a full charge.Alfa lists the device can be used while charging, plugged in, which technically it can. It does not actually charge while in use and plugged in though. I was using the Alfa while plugged in, and the device drained the batter while in use and shut off. Still while plugged in. It would not continue charging until it was turned to off, and after would not turn on till the device was fully charged. Overall this is a huge waste of money, especially for a medical patient who needs a continuous supply of medication. If I could afford to buy something else at this point I would do so. Don't waste your money on product that does not work as it is intended.

    buyer beware

    The Alfa isn't ready to be sold its issues are widespread over the internet, wish I would of given it some time after release before buying.First Alfa I got didn't work out of the box new, I returned it for warranty repair. Gotvape claims they preformed a update on the software on my Alfa and returned it 3+ weeks after they received it. The 'fixed' Alfa arrives and I charged it till the light is green, go to use it even on the lowest setting and the light just flashes indicating that its trying to heat up but it never heats up no matter what setting its on or how long you give it

    doesn't charge

    My first Alfa ($199) stopped charging after about 3 mos. I bought another ($199) and it too stopped charging after a few mos. For awhile I was able to wiggle the charger and when the light came on, rubber band it in place. The connection was tenuous and after a few weeks I lost even that. Goboof told me it was probably the charger, which was only warrantied for 30 days, so they sold me another ($25 w shipping). It wasn't the charger, I gave up.
