magicflight addresses the new batteries. The Magic-Flight Box
Search function is your friend.
(Why is there no embarrassed smiley here?)
Lol, i saw that former post from the search function before I asked. I was just wondering if it was worth the money to invest in a premium wood box to experience the new logo batteries. I was contemplating a walnut box or a flash vape.
For an exotic wood box and drastically upgraded batteries, IMO... I'd get the kit, if the funds are available.
ya if your'e wanting to get another box anyway might as well get the exotic one w/ the new batteries... Stu set me up w/ some and they are definitely way better than the old recommended ones, big difference... i haven't made much time for messing with them lately, but i plan to in the next few days... i don't travel too much w/ my box actually, and i am happy w/ my PA at ~40 for home... so far those new batteries seem stronger than i need them to be... but again i haven't had much time to mess w/ them; i'm sure ill love them... i'm glad i have them around though...
yes i must say that having these logo batteries helps me love my MFLB even more.
Exotic wood, WPW, new batteries, matching finishing grinder to compliment your exotic LB. I would want them all .
I like to share when I vape. The only downside to this portable is that it's hard to share/enjoy with other people. Technique is key. I've used other portables - Solo, No2, Inhalater (much easier to use in a group setting) but (IMO) doesn't provide hits as tasty as the LB.
I don't have the funds to purchase a new toy (whenever I want) but would love a portable that did it all (efficient, group friendly, clean airpath/tasty vapor).
I <3 MF customer service and they do have the best warranty policy. That walnut box keeps at me .
HAPPY HOLIDAYS MFLBers!
I second that. The logo batts are as strong as my beta-PA maybe stronger.
They have changed the way I hit the LB with a much shorter waiting time
followed by a much sharper draw on the pull. In public it is just the thing
for quick hidden hits.
OH Yeah Happy Holidays
My MFLB, has actually made more vape converts, than my other vapes. I just start it, by pulling it out of my pocket, pulling a rip... and people are suddenly interested.
The new batteries, make it MUCH, easier also.
MF has the best customer service... i just had yet another good experience w/ them... there was an unexpected issue w/ my shipment that i wanted to bring to their attention because they seemed to be unaware... i had not expected to hear from them until after the holidays... i knew it would be close... i was pleasantly suprised to get an email at ~7pm from them on x-mas eve... usually takes at least few days to hear from them but i always do hear from them and that's nice to be able to count on... i can rest easy now knowing my shipment isn't sitting at some SD post office forgotten about... happy holidays
EDIT: just tried new batteries/whip through the bong, it was pretty impressive... BDV inspired me to try haa.. usually i'd use my PA... to me these batteries feel like my PA at ~60%.. just about where i like it for the bong... nice to not be tethered to the wall using the LB/bong... its was possible w/ the old batteries but not nearly as practical... i still like the power of the old ones for normal use, ATM they seem to fit my battery routine/usage style better... i'll probably use the new ones for if i want to hit my LB through my bong... also the new batteries seem to keep pieces from sticking to my screen as much...
I have found the same thing, after smoking a bit with a few friends a couple days ago I pulled out the box and by the end of the session there were 2 new mflb enthusiasts asking where to buy one.
I just measured the screen temp on mine with my temp gun. Goes to 250 in like 3 secs and stays there. Box is newer and works great! Just was curious if it would read. Although it has to be getting hotter as it vapes the stuff to dark brown.
Damn, I wish I had thought of that! I'm going to use my hubby's temp gun to test my MFLB's now.
Ill try again with fully charged batteries but at 250 no vapor would be made, or atleast very little. Not sure if you can measure it that way...but thatd be cool to see what you get also. I get nice visible vapor every hit with mflb. Even when drawing faster it cooks it nice. I dont think the actual screen temp goes down much if at all while drawing. Your just bringing in more cool air but the screen keeps baking. Real happy with it.
Not a big fan of this vape. I've had it for a year now and used it extensively and find it tends to burn the plant matter. The learning curve was kinda silly too. You shouldn't have to go to youtube to learn how to use a vape imo.
That's a shame because this is a good vaporizer, and a lot of people love it, including me. It has been my sole vaporizer for years now.
It is what it is I guess. It's been my sole vape as well for the time I've had it and really wanted to love it but I just don't think it's very well designed. To each their own. I'm thinking of buying the Cloud in the next while and trying that out.
We have a motto here at this forum; there is no "best" vape. Each person has their own needs in a vape and which vape is best for them is really based on that. For you, the LB didn't work out well. It didn't fit your needs. For many it has and is their daily driver.
However, to say that the LB isn't well designed is an opinion which is not shared by many here.
My advice to you, before you go and buy your next vape, would be to do some research. There is so much information here on most vapes. Do some research so that you don't buy another that doesn't suit your personal needs.
That may be true for most vaporizers, but the mflb is an exception. Because it heats up so fast, and it uses just regular rechargeable batteries, there is a learning curve. Other vaporizer either have a set temperature or you can control the temperature, but they don't heat up nearly as fast as the mflb. The fast heat up allows a full spectrum hit with very little difficulty, so it is good enough for me.
Plus look how small it is, it is the vaporizer version of one hitters for smokers. You can let it heat up and extract what you want, then just take a hit, and go where you need to go without taking too much time out to puff your herb or be seen like a joint or other portable vaporizers. It's perfect for outside situations where being inconspicuous is a must, but you want a nice potent puff.
Improper technique, which doesn't require Youtube. Everything I learned about using the MFLB, I learned on my own and in this thread. If you doubt the ability to pull satisfying vapor hits out of the MFLB, go to my channel. I have at least 5+ videos, pulling nice thick hits off the MFLB and water pieces.
Your herb, isn't properly cured/ground if you're constantly torching it. My guess, would be its too wet and you're having to apply heat too long. Try letting your bud sit out a 1/2 hour or so, before grinding, or do it in a batch. Glass jar, in the fridge until you see the water condensation. Remove the jar and the bud, from the jar. Let both return to room temp. Repeat, until your herb has just a slight bit of crisp to it, when you squeeze it.

It's not the vaporizer. Some vaporizers just suck, but the MFLB is not one of them. I'd check out the other variables before castigating the MFLB. Make sure your herb is dry and grind it fine and don't overfill the trench. As long as you draw slowly, the MFLB will do the job.
so i had this broken lid that was barely hanging on.. i decided to just fix it before it fully broke + add the ball bearing catch from my old warrantied(destroyed) box... i just flipped the lid around and eye balled everything(lost my calipers), had to widen the hole slightly since it was a little off centered, but w/ the ball bearing it locks into place perfectly... check it out..
I also traced the MF logo and engraved it into the lid for fun... good as new
EDIT: found my calipers, a little late though haa
What I admire is your determination to fix something that you know Magic-Flight would replace.
Thanks, saves me time and them money... i would feel bad w/ 2 warranties back to back.. if its already considered broken by MF, and i can see an easy way to fix it, whats the risk in trying... because my box operates perfectly... Just using rubber band like JSteez said, would have worked... i mentioned my breaking lid in one of my last emails to MF, asking if they recommended a fix-it solution. i was told to take a pic of the damage w/ my screen visible and take a pic of my serial#... i guess ill have to let them know its been fixed since then... its a trip how they can offer a warranty like that, i swear they'll replace a box over ANYTHING, no 100 questions either... their reputation is too legit to quit...
how many of you use your box native? i never really liked it all that much before cause i found it a bit hot and that it would somewhat burn my tongue. however, this past week i sucked it up and tried using my LB native for a few days and have been absolutely loving it. seeing a new side of my box with just a little kiss
