    You don't need a charger like that, the MFLB batteries are happy in the original charger. That is a really nice charger though, and if you use batteries a lot in your LB then you will probably benefit from having one.

    Just wanted to say that I am happy new owner of a MFLB. I am loving the vapor quality and the ease of use. Compared to the IOLITE, everything is better exception the stealthier look for the IOLITE. but this is so small that it is much easier to out of sight.
    I was wondering about 1 thing.
    The first vape of a fresh batch of Cannabis, it produces much vapor visually, rest of hiits has no vapor exhaled that is I feel some warmth in the throat, usually a dollop of warmth and then it lessens.
    I am waiting the 3- 5 seconds, more on the 5 second maybe 7 seconds not much more i fear to combust as I went thru a relative nightmare with the Pulsar 7.

    AM I doing it right? also the look of the used Cannabis has never gotten as dirt brown as with the Iolite, there is even looks like tobbacco heaven forbid. But here it is still dark green they smell the same.
    I am taking about 4-6 rounds and still not brown color. Am I doing anything wrong would u say.

    The first hit of any new trench (or bowl ort whatever) is always the tastier because the terpenoids that provide flavour are volatile and evaporate at lower temperatures. From your description of your ABV I think you might be drawing too hard. Try micro-hitting or pyronym's technique.

    And grind finer if you aren't already, as well. It works because heat is transferred from the screen to the material via contact. More surface area = more contact = more vapors.

    Right, and I also should have mentioned that it likes dry material.

    I ground very fine but I will study the techniques. I would say the quality of the experience is very good
    on a par with what I had with the Iolite. So just need to fine tune. Thank you for you help.

    your idea of the flat disks in the bottle is good however in the long run the nickle and other metals in coins are not a good thing to injest a better idea would be to use stainless steel washers

    I get to order the cherry MFLB this Friday! I did our taxes last Friday (2-1-13), and the IRS accepted it same day. They already approved our refund, and plan to deposit it this Friday (2-8-13)!!! I'm really impressed with the IRS this year! :D

    Now, I am really excited for Friday to get here. :lol:

    Is there a way to get a custom carving on the back of the launch box? Valentines day is coming up and nothing says love like a custom vaporizer.

    I'm not sure. Why don't you shoot Magic Flight an email and ask them? :)

    Where is the cheapest place to buy a Magic Flight? I'm thinking about buying one for fast self medication out of home.

    I always liked one-hits from my pipe when I combusted out of my house and I think this will be the most similar vape out there.

    Gotvape will price match it at $80 and maybe even lower. And youre right, the MFLB is the best portable one hitter vape I've seen so far. It has replaced my protopipe in that regard.

    Definitely the right choice. The box makes medicating at home without causing the whole place to reek of bud easy as pressing a button. Ebay has some very good deals with extra batteries, water pipe adapter, free spacecase grinder, shit like that. Just make sure the box you are buying has the click lock lid, it is the latest model if I'm not mistaken.

    The dirty one was my early model Box that I dropped and damaged. The clean one is the warranty replacement :)

    Nice photos. The older one is a really early LB. What was the damage? I can't see anything obvious.

    As has been mentioned before in this thread, it is common practice to mix joints with tobacco here and it's come to the point where I need to knock the tobacco on the head. My first MFLB is on it's way after being convinced by this thread! I'm all stocked up and ready to vape, the LB is due to be delivered tomorrow morning. I'll continue to read this thread to try to take in all the valuable advice here and hopefully contribute in the future.

    I was a big mixer of the tobacco and Weed in my joints for a very very very long time. Before that was blunt wraps from overpriced cigars. I got my mflb a bit over two years ago and haven't looked back. In that time, I smoked one joint... Actually half and a few hits from a disgusting bullet pipe. I have no more cravings for tobacco or anything burned. Success!!

    Good luck!

    Whoa, how did you get it that dirty? And I thought my box looked a little off because I've never done the ISO clean... damn. Did you dirty it for the photos? What have you been vaping? :p

    Thanks, glad you like the pics!

    It was the pin which attaches the lid. In the first pic you can see it pushed out a wedge of wood at the back of the unit, creating a gap around the pin. After that, the lid was very loose and wouldn't make a seal unless I held it down tightly. One side of the screen was also slightly detached (it had been that way for some time already) Technically it still worked, but just barely, so I decided it was time to retire it after many years service.

    Hahahah yep, its extremely dirty! I blame Amsterdam weed :) I was vaping the finest Dutch herbs, which are very sticky and resin coated. It got that dirty naturally, it wasn't setup for the photo.

    I did clean it occasionally, but less and less often towards the end of its life. With the volume of top quality herb I was putting through it, the Box got dirty so quickly that I slacked off with cleaning. I did brush the screen and do the 'burn off' reasonably often, because that affects the function. But I stopped bothering with aesthetic cleaning (like the buildup underneath the lid)

    so I looked at this battery push ring and how my hand hurts after about a half hour of hits and took a pair of nail clippers and took the outer edge off of the push back ring at one end only. what I ended up with was a cone shaped push back ring that requires less pressure to operate and still has a positive battery shut off in "my mflb" your mileage may vary!
    i did find that for my hands that the clear top needed some more bevel angle so that my hand pressure does not dislocate the clear top in use
    really like this box and its starting to fit and feel gooood
    i think that an exotic wood like a fruit wood would be big sellers if they were more available and talked up in the retail store. Where i bought mine, that was not mentioned, kind of pisses me off that the alternate woods are not talked about in the retail stores but live and learn

    Don't blame your LHS, they probably don't even know that exotic wood LBs exist. They have never been available from anyone but Magic-Flight's official store.
