Magic Flight Launch Box Review (MFLB)
Pros: Great tasting vapor, with pure flavor of the herbs. Simple, yet very functional design. Made out of handcrafted, renewable wood. Different choices of wood. No need for lighter or butane.
Cons: Not really discreet. No temperature control. When wrongly pulled, the vapor may be too hot. No power button. The battery can get too hot if it is not recapped.
What’s Good About the MFLB Vaporizer?
Despite its long name, the Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer has remained to be one of the most favorite portable vaporizers available in the market today. And with a number of nifty features has under its hood, it’s not surprising that most vapers consider it as their personal favorites. Flip it over to read the inspiring message, or open the acrylic lid to put in your favorite dry blend. However you want to use it, it’s one box that you definitely won’t forget easily.
What’s in the Launch Box?
This simple-looking box is made out of wood, with an acrylic lid that opens up to the heating chamber. Depending on the model, wood choices range from premium walnut, premium cherry or the original maple. Unlike most portable vaporizers, such as the Arizer Solo or the Pax Ploom, the MFLB uses an AA battery to power it up. But even though it doesn’t have a built-in battery, the package comes with rechargeable AA batteries and a battery charger. It’s also not as discreet as the Puffit vaporizer which is an inhaler vaporizer but it definitely has a certain charm to it.
Size and Power
The Launch Box vaporizer is very portable. It is 1.25 inches long, 2.5 inches wide, and less than an inch high, pretty much the same as your typical lighter. It’s very handy and fits in your pocket (pocket vaporizer) or your bag.
A single fully charged AA battery gives enough power for 15 to 30 minutes of continuous vapor. One full packed trench gives users 4 to 8 vapor draws, depending on the power of the pull.
Features and Options
Copper-plated steel rods heat the inside of the box. The temperature is fixed to just reach 380F in 4 seconds after inserting the battery. After battery insertion, adjust the rate of your draw to normalize the internal vapors incident eh box.
Using the Magic Flight Box requires taking the rubber lid off from the magic flight launch box battery, putting it in the hold, and then pressing on it to heat up the conductors inside. This might be a problem with some users who are used to simply pressing a power button.
A trough made out of mesh screen hovers over the heating elements inside this box. The trough serves as the ‘bowl’ for the herbs while being heated by the rods underneath. Unlike other vaporizers that need to be mixed, the MFLB just needs to be shaken every pull to keep the herbs fresh.
The Magic Flight Launch Box vaporizer allows users to directly draw vapor without the acrylic mouthpiece, also known as ‘Native Usage’. Most users say that this kind of drawing enhances the vapor and its taste. To reach higher temperatures, remember to slowly draw the vapor from the box.
Manufacturing Build and Quality
The Magic Flight Launch Box is one of the few vaporizers that utilizes handcrafted, renewable wood as its main material. It is made in the USA with quality wood and is very sturdy. It is one of the least technical vaporizers in the market, yet one that is considerably reliable and solid, in terms of usability.
Cleaning the Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer
The Magic Flight is not hard to clean at all. Just scrape the screen with the cleaning brush, wipe the window and the acrylic mouthpiece and you’re all done.
On the other hand, the trench area, or the heating area, needs extra care when you need to clean it. Some people blow into the trench to remove burnt herbs, while others brush it away.
Some users report that the trench/mesh inside may get too covered up with burnt gunk or herbs. This can be a problem since the screen is not replaceable and it cannot be removed for manual cleaning
Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer Warranty
The MFLB is covered with a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty, making it a very popular choice among vape users. However, the NIMH batteries are just covered with six months of warranty, but then again these ones can easily be replaced with an after-market set of rechargeable batteries.
