I know the Apex Flex is in private release currently, but I havent been keeping up with everything. I was originally part of the Vivokey implant (Which has suffered the infamous bricking issue almost a year ago, still residing in my arm…) but I havent heard anything about the replacement for being a beta tester. Is there a fee that I need to pay? Or will I be reached out to accordingly to have it replaced? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Hey! We emailed flex one beta testers a while back. If you didn’t receive that email, please DM me your order details and we will confirm and ship you an apex flex.
Another one for you Amal

> I am reaching out to Flex One beta participants via email to get updated shipping details.
As a Flex One beta participant I have never received an e-mail to update my shipping details. After the announcement I waited for it, but never got anything… check-in in now again.
Can I still get the shipping details e-mail for the Flex One replacement to the Apex Flex?
I am using the username… Thanks!
how does one sign up for beta
travel backwards in time
The implants are out of beta testing buddy.
There are some out in the wild, but the official launch I wouldn’t think would be too far away.
Just a little more patience my friend
I mean… anyone can buy it now from VivoKey Apex Flex - RFID & NFC Chip Implants and Biohacking products … just not a lot of support outside this forum at the moment.
Has worked started on the x-series form factor for the apex? I want the flex but I don’t see any installers in California
You’ll have to call local shops. People will do it if you ask but will not advertise it. I had called 4 shops before finding one that would do it, and I’m in conservative Utah. So you should be able to find something.
Don’t forget the flex comes with a needle for install. Slightly different to the X series but if your installer can do an X series they will certainly be able to do the flex with the needle.
Just make sure you have a drink to steel your nerves before looking at the needle. It is bloody huge.
Don’t call to do anything but schedule a consultation. Follow the How to approach a professional - DT Info - Dangerous Things Forum

I just had my Vivokey Flex installed in Salt Lake City. There is a shop listed on the installer map. Really friendly staff although I was surprised at the install price given that they are just using the needle to make the pocket.
What was the price?
Yeah the price I got was like $250 I think. But it was the only place that would do it and a flex is more than I can self install. It was a nice place, nice people, so I was fine paying that much. I normally would go to koi in the past but Patrick the guy who did the cool stuff retired I guess.
Do you live in SLC?
They charged me $200 so maybe it was a different shop I went too although my installer used the same needle technique. Like you said though it was worth it since I wasn’t going to shove that needle in myself.
I do not. I took a week off of work for vacation and drove across the country. Since I was passing through SLC or Denver I hit up the installers listed on the map to see which one fit my schedule better and SLC was the best option for me logistically. Would definitely go back to them for a flex install if I was in the area but there is an installer who I normally go to in LA but I guess he doesn’t work consistently like pre pandemic.
I bet it was the same place and I’m just not remembering the price right. But agree, it was pretty painless, I watched the full process and felt almost nothing. I was unsure of the flattening but it worked out well.
If your ever in SLC again hit me up and we’ll grab a drink or something
