They're messin' with you Pak, don't fall for it......
So many devices... so much modern stuff!
I have not used the MFLB in 3 weeks, although one hangs from my waist in its belt pouch.
With all of the new devices to test, and to fidget with, I slipped away from basics.
Today I left gadgetry at home and hit the road with my MFLB.
1st hit on the move was so great tasting. It felt almost "steampunk" for a second, inserting the battery, and placing it's cap on the pushing end.
I am sorry old friend that I let you sit unused.
I completely vaped to coffee colored ABV 3 trenches that had been 3 weeks ago prepped. Prepped in the OEM Nano, followed by the MFLB Finishing grinder.....
Then, these glistening green flakes sat waiting for that time, in the pouch with my LB.
I sing praise to the simple device, that just got me to the post office and back, and then gave me 3 complete trenches on one battery...
...a battery that although now charging, felt as though it had "one last trench still in it" to give!
So if I may be direct in my sentiment......
Yay Box! (take flight)
I have had similar moments. Neglected, revisited, and then the love is back all over again! Despite advances in technology, there are several things this simple, tiny little box can do that the others simply can't!
I also recently had to do a warranty exchange for the first time. I was reminded how exceptional there customer service is. Simple procedure and I felt like they genuinely wanted me to be back up and running as quick as possible. This new box performs even better than my old one and I am loving the ball catch on the lid!
I'm with you guys. It wouldn't have been appropriate to bring my Solo to a wedding last week and I couldn't stomach the thought of breaking out my PUFFiT, so the MFLB got called back up to the majors. Kept me medicated with some mid-evening maintenance hits. It's easy to forget about the little guy once in a while - until you really need it.
Maybe I'll get mine today, I'm about 30 miles from their facility I think. Maybe +/- 5-7 miles? I wonder if they'd let me hand-pick a warranty box
I got my email too! Now, to stalk my mail-woman...
Well lets get some vids up u lucky winners!!!
Thats interesting... i imagined the WPA not be much different but i can see how it could be... thats cool.. i was going to buy a WPA a week or so ago and i decided against it because my set up was working fine... ive only used a rigged up silicone tube whip attachment and i thought it worked out w/ the power adapter good.. never tried w/ batteries actually... anayway i usually dont use any water attachment but i do like it now n then.
3 weeks!! !! I had to do a double take. and this is coming from Vito?!
You are forgiven, new techy stuff all gets to us sometimes but at least you went back to basics
Fantastic post! I can really feel the MFLB love
Now, back to the and
cant forget the
(Too many emoticons? Im feeling rather emotional today!..... bahahaha)
BDV's experience is probably exactly what the new WPA will be like. Probably cheaper too.
We the members of this forum are an innovative lot.
Many members are now gone, but over a year ago they invented stuff like mad to use with MFLB and water.
we are vaporists and us inventing stuff is no stretch.
We get to try stuff before the general public, because we live on the Vapor Info Highway....
The rest of the world (I am about to use a harsh word as a descriptive adjective) is ignorant.
They can not invent as we do.....
They do not have the spare pieces lying about as do some of us.
With an imagination that is young and unpracticed......
The WPW is a Godsend.
It matches... and it is official
it is available on the website. (many are afraid to, or do not know how to look for "after market" stuff that may/may not fit.)
Magic Flight... ya done good!
this my first post here but i been looking at this forum for over a year.i read most of the 756pages here. usually i skip batteries talk lol .i just lost my original box to the law.this incident gave me a chance to get a new bow .I got the new premium walnut box and walnut stem. let me say that my love for this box is unparalleled.The extra money is so worth it!!.The flavor and smell is quite noticeable different compare with the maple one.I find that the walnut covers the herb smell much better than maple.I get a earthy taste from the box .which i love!!I noticed my screen is a gold color.Is this a new change or is the wood making the screen look like that? I know that new boxes run hotter than older boxes.my box is making vapor with 1-2 seconds and usually i had to wait 3-5 seconds for the same results, is this normal? also i found the batteries that came with my unit are awesome compare with old ones i had.i dont know the make of them but they have the mflb logo stamped on it.i find that it gives me the same power of my pa on full.I also have a pa that solely use in my car at full power.i find lower temps take too long to heat up while i was driving and become a distraction.i take small 3-5 second hits while driving.i know most people on her dont use there pa past halfway on the dial.i understand the reasons for it. i find that at full power u just get high faster, you just have to remember to take shorter hit.also your herb will be done faster at full power but its up to you.this one reason way i love my box.
i finally made a post here lol
Aw yes!! They're sending them out now! I don't know who else on here go them, but I was asked to beta test them back in late August. They're A+ batteries, giving me 3 trenches a piece. I pretty much stopped using my PA once I had charged them up the first time. A much appreciated improvement over the ones they were sending out before, IMO.
Great news! I just pulled the trigger on a new kit for a friend, and I was hoping
that the new batts would come with the kit.
The batts with the mflb logo are more powerful than my PA.
My friend is going to love it and have a shorter learning curve.
They released the batteries... finally!
That's how I pull off those cool milk shots with batteries.
I gave one of my beta test batteries to a friend, and he actually doesn't like it because it's too powerful. He likes a slower experience.
When I finished my tests I originally thought MF had pulled off a miracle because I was sure they were LSD batteries. I did a refresh and analyze with my C-9000 and they seemed to be 2400 mAH batteries. Also, MF in the past chose to ship LSD batteries because they have an excellent shelf life. Then I tested an Imedion 2400, a Powerex 2700, and the MF battery by charging them up completely and then letting them sit for two weeks. The MF battery lost much more charge than the Powerex, 445 mAH to 122, so now I believe they are HSD.
One thing I did was compare the brightness of my light with a fully charged Powerex 2700 and a fully charged MF battery. The MF battery was noticeably brighter. It clearly delivers more power to the screen. The overall hit count was almost identical with both batteries, but the ABV from the MF battery came out much darker. The extra power is also reflected in the fact that I was finishing trenches in about 15 hits compared to 20 with the 2700.
Whip is out for delivery!
I was also one of the beta testers for the next batteries. i definitely liked them. stronger than the old stock ones. i got similar results as you Quet, 2.5-3 trenches worth per battery.
like paka, i really thought they were LSDs as well but just really strong. however, i noticed that they definitely lost the charge quicker than the older stock batts. to me their kinda like a half-way between an LSD and HSD battery but leaning a bit more towards the HSD.
all in all i think the new batteries are still an improvement and will allow new users to pick up the technique more easily while allowing more seasoned users to pull off bigger clouds with ease.
edit: in regards to light brightness using the new batteries, i found in comparison to my PA, a freshly charged new battery is equal to ~80% on my PA.
And a good post at that! Thanx for the info about the batteries too. I've been looking for a reason to get one of those walnut versions....gotta have a spare right?
Welcome to the club,I think you'll like it here!
i have learn so much from this forum and that it was time for me add something.i find ,with new batteries you have to take shorter hit or shake it during the hit to prevent burning the load.yeah the batteries are that strong.i was going to get the cherry one because i think it would taste better but i could resit the look of the walnut. its quite beautiful.
Yeah the beta batteries were pretty good. I don't know if I got three trenches, but I definitely got a good two. Mine still fit really tightly so much so that I sometimes nearly combust because they stick and I neglected to twist.
I asked MF about this, and they told me that it was somewhere between LSD and HSD. I didn't even know that was possible.
I liked them much more than the old stock bats, too.
I wonder if the ones they show on the site are the "new" batteries? The ones pictured dont look to have a logo on them. Interesting nonetheless. mflb ftw!!
I also beta tested those batteries, and they are awesome! I guess we are allowed to talk about it now? I hope so!
