Both the 8-GeV booster and collider ring will use super-ferric magnets with fields up to 3 Tesla. We here propose an alternative cost-effective and low-risk design where the 8-GeV booster is replaced with a more compact 3-GeV booster using room-temperature magnets. The electron storage ring, which is part of the electron complex, will also serve as large booster for the ions, up to 11 GeV. We also propose two stages for the JLEIC. A first low-energy stage up to 60 GeV, where room-temperature magnets (up to 1.6 Tesla) will be used for the ion collider ring, to be later replaced with 6 Tesla superconducting magnets in a second stage of the project providing up to 200 GeV energy. In this second stage, the 1.6 T room-temperature magnets will replace the PEP-II magnets in the electron storage ring to boost the ions to higher energies (25 GeV or higher) for appropriate injection into the higher energy collider. Details and feasibility of the proposed plan will be presented and discussed.
