Ready for Liftoff…
If you name your vaporizer the Magic Flight Launch Box, you better be able to back it up. Who doesn’t want to launch themselves into a magic flight? I have to admit I came into this review pretty skeptical; T he ones I have used left me with that feeling that I just wanted…more. They worked, but never gave me that over the top Whaaa – BAM that I was looking for. Then I met the LB.
Straight out of the box I have to say this thing looks weird. A battery sticking out the side? WTF? Its size is shockingly small for a vaporizer, so small in fact that I am incredulous that its going to work well, but I think they could have found a better solution for the battery. With the use of NATURAL WOO,D Its an odd juxtoposition of nature and technology. The LB comes in a nice metal box with two batteries and a charger, glass stem and a small brush for cleaning the screen.
The LB can be used with or without the included glass tube. I found it to be the only way to used the MF, without its a bit too warm for me, but I can DEFINITELY see the advantage of not using it in certain occasions.
The batteries are a bit unique, in that they do not have stickers or labels covering them, the negative(-) part of the battery is actually the outside of the battery. They come with included rubber caps, which prevent them from accidentally discharging if say, you had them loose in your pocket or purse and something metal like your keys were in contact with both the positive and negative ends. You can use any AA NiMH rechargeable with 2000 mAh (miliamp hours) or more ..remove stickers and adhesive before use with your LB. The LB website has extensive information about batteries and chargers if you need it. It comes with two batteries, but its clear after one session that two won’t be enough.
MF recommends that you grind up your herbs very fine, not chunky in any way. A normal twist grinder should work just fine, but I found a grinder card that has a fine grade grind is the best. It works well, fits in the case or wallet easily. If you have a LB, you should definitely pick one up.
When you load the chamber its important to know that the screen is very thin and fragile. Load, but never pack tight, or you could easily damage the screen. The screen isn’t user replaceable. And also never load higher than the level of the trench, so that you can shake/stir between draws. This version has a click lock lid, but some older models might be using a rubber band.
Once your battery is inserted and the trench is loaded, squeeze or push the battery fully into the LB – there is a rubber ring inside that keeps the battery from making full contact until you squeeze – and a light comes on inside the unit seen through the draw hole. Heat up time is crazy quick, just wait just four seconds and draw on the vape. Its important not to draw to hard, just take little sips, or draw VERY slowly. You will find instantly that taking a bunch of little draws feels very familiar.
The LB tastes is very good, not woody or electronic in any way, and as long as you use the glass tube the hits are smooth and cool. This thing doesn’t make huge clouds but that is just fine with me because the desired effect is still achieved. Its works and it works well. Between hits its important to shake the box to mix up the herbs to get the most even coverage. After each load, its recommended to clean the screen with the included brush. I don’t think that is very realistic, but again, its just a recommendation. I use it about every 5 loads and that seems to work just fine.
They do offer a plug in adapter for home use and also a water pipe adapter, and have recently added a concentrate tray insert; I hope to review that pretty soon.
On the downside, The battery life situation isn’t very good. Actually, its really, really bad. “One fully charged battery per load” is what their site claims. I am getting a little closer to two loads, but still….that’s awful in my book. If you don’t spend a ton on extra batteries… you will probably wish you had. I need to get 10-20 uses out of any portable, and I don’t think that is asking too much. I also wish the glass tube somehow slid inside the box when not in use, its easy to lose. The LB did survive the drop test from 4.5ft, only the lid opened up, but it instantly fired up and is still hitting like a champ.
Over all I think this is a shockingly good portable vape that just has some slight design, and major battery issues. But for what it is, an uber convenient vape that fits in your hand and tastes great, I am willing to deal with the battery short comings in hopes that a major refresh of the LB is on the way.
is optimized for convenience — it was never intended to be “the worlds most efficient vape”. Dollar for dollar, the Box delivers more vapor in more locations more naturally.
|Magic Flight Launch Box|
|Heat-up time||4 Seconds|
Make sure you get your MFLB from an Authorized Retailer!
A great vape for yourself
The magic flight launch box is the simplest and one of the most effective vapes that I have tried, having tried volcano twice, a few pen vapes and a PAX a few times. If you have the money, PAX is an amazing vaporizer, but it works only a little better than the magic flight and has less of a craft associated with it.
The magic flight launch box is something you need to develop a feel for. The battery life, heat and getting the perfect hit all take some getting used to initially but after that it is hard to leave the launch box.
I have owned 3 and just ordered a 4th. They have a lifetime warranty but you need the launch box to return for them to fix which presents problems after losing it.
Not For All ENT's
I love my MFLB soooo much! But for a daily dabber like my self I can not get my self sufficiently vaporized with my MFLB. When I first got her back in Early 2012 and would use it all the time. It works perfectly, the first 3 hits are just explosions of taste! It takes patience and technique. I\'d get it for a first time smoker but not for the experienced. Go check out the pax, peace! (; 
While I think that the MFLB does need some minor refinement in terms of design and functionality, I do find it to be a wonderful device both for stealth and taste. I am more of a fan of smoking over vaping however I find the MFLB to be a great handheld device if you upgrade the batteries that come with it. When I am in the mood for a clearer effect, I turn right to the MFLB to deliver a great experience.
Ideal for my smoking type
Taste: I got the walnut because I heard it has a nice woody flavor. It leaves a kind of piney taste on the tongue when sipped. Shaking the box after a hit is pleasing, to be so carefree and wave your vape around.
Ease of Use- Easy to learn. You can use it without the glass wand for discretion. It works better when the batteries are amply charged, so charge them frequently but don\'t leave them on the charger when they’re done. Also, be sure to read the lovely little manual closely. I keep a small rubber band around the unit when I travel with it.
Price- There are cheaper vapes available, but none are so well thought-out and legit. I was a very light smoker, and I never finished my glass bowl. I\'d come back a couple days later to a partially cashed ashy bowl. With the Magic Flight, I can pack a trench and take a few hits once in a while and just leave it until all the material’s been toasted.
The simple wooden design feels ideal. Recommended to anyone who wants to control the amount they intake, especially light vapers. Also a good second vape if you have one at home already.
