I find the first few hits to be incredibly tasty.
a friend of mine was in a hospital for a few days because of a broken leg. guess, what he used for pain relief around the clueless staff.
"Get money huh, get money y'all"
WOW, I wasn't expecting that here. That was my shit.
Basically yeah. I used to save all my ABV and add it the weed I used for blasting or cooking. But that ABV was when I would stop vaping while it was still tasting good. Nowadays, that is the only abv I save, the fully vaped dark brown stuff I dump.
Just had my first multi MFLP/PA/WPW sesh with my buddy that I talked into buying it.
He couldn't be happier and I am extremely lifted!
Just saw this deal on woot.com and thought some people could benefit from this. They're 2000mAH so they're strong enough for the MFLB.
Eneloop 8pk AA with 4-Position Charger for $18
Better get it while its still good.
Received my PIU order yesterday, 2 walnut LB's, 2 walnut stems & 2 vape cases;
Randy from PuffItUp really hooked us up with an awesome deal on our custom combo's!
My brother and I really appreciate it, and we digg our walnut setup as well as the new powerful batteries that came with it.
sweeet setup. serious biz.
so what batteries? best rechargeables for this are...?
Thnx, it's in addition to what we already had;
As for the batteries, the best imo are the ones that came with the walnut, tbh I don't know the actual number of amperage.
I have 5 batteries that came with the maple box 1,5 years ago, they still do the job.
Recently ordered 2 of eBay, where the seller claims it to be more powerful than the old MFLB equipped ones, and I can vouch for that. For now I experience the eBay ones to be equal to the latest MFLB ones. But you won't have the logos on those, plus I would still have to see in the long run.
Of course the PA is in another league.
Everyone thnx for the likes..!
Oh, btw, the walnuts also came with a new (to me anyway) black charger which is slightly smaller than the white one in this pic, and it has the logo in color, plus I think it looks better.
And the known tin box was padded now.
Those batteries are indeed the best: the ones that Magic-Flight is currently shipping with the walnut and cherry (premium) boxes. They're Magic-Flight branded and apparently made according to custom design by Magic-Flight. Right now that's the only way to get them; by ordering a premium kit. MF plans to hopefully sell them separately in the future. In the mean time we can potentially look forward to seeing them included in the maple kits sometime this summer, as reported by Axakal in this post.
That charger is definitely new. I've seen two boxes purchased new in October and December 2012, and both came with a black charger bearing a white MF logo.
By the way, is it just me or is their logo amazing? Anything with their logo on it just looks cool…
Cool guys. I have a MFLB, got it for 20 us dollars and haven't really used it- I think the batteries were just never right as I couldn't get the thing to work. I'll try charge up some batteries and try it again
Good plan, be advised you need specific batteries (most don't work well) and well charged to play. Does your unit have the light? If so, it's a good clue when you're starting out, pay attention to it.
As I said before, PIU is selling maple kits with the new batteries. Don't need to wait till summer.
Hey! I totally missed that. Good looking out, and grats on the new batteries!
MFLB is great. would be great if it was easier to clean the metallic screen. Why not use separate adapter that connects to the top (after the chamber is opened) and sucks out any residue. I would imagine 9V battery should be powerful enough to do it....
or maybe some redesign where the screen can be manually replaced....
My box was returned to me last night after being on loan for a year and a half or more . the person who had it just ordered the walnut box and a FV for themselves but kept my PA to use with their new MFLB , I'll get some Herb and the new batteries for the PA[can't really vape close to an outlet at this time anyways] , sounds good to me . Just did a trench and love this thing, it was the first vape I really used to Fuck Combustion. Nice to have it back in rotation . May Ya'll Have A Very Magic Flight Day !!!
First off, I just want to thank Magic-Flight and Tina Marie for an excellent customer experience! I hadn't used my PA in over a year and it started acting up when I decided to return to the box again. Tina Marie made the warranty processing fast and easy and I had a replacement PA shortly after
I immediately went back online and grabbed the walnut water whip. To anyone that's even thinking about it... PA + Water whip = TOUCHING THE SKY. The reason I stopped using the box for over a year is because I prefer smoking but after this set up I may be officially converted!
So finally, my question: My water whip seems to be clogging on the wooden end that attaches to the bong. I don't want to dip the whole thing in ISO cause of what it might do to the wood and other than jamming a paper clip in it, I can't seem to keep it clean. Considering it IS a $35 piece I'm trying to make sure this is the only one I need to buy lol. Any ideas/recommendations?
Heyo, I've ended up working with Tina as well before. I think she's the one that hand-signed some of the stuff that came with my warranty unit. Cool girl, BDV spoke well of her as well if I recall. They're pretty spot on with warranty as well, though I haven't had to do my PA yet. Did they have you send anything back? Cut the wire? Might have to do it with mine soon so I'm just curious.
Anyways you can actually take the WPW apart, if you've got the one with the "wooden pyramid" piece. For me, all I have to do is take the WPW off (obviously lol) and set it on my desk. One hand grabs the glass part, one hand grabs the wooden part, and I pull them in opposite directions. At least with my adapters, both the old-school direct WPA and this new whip-based one separated at the glass/wood part. Anyways, slowly remove that, and then you should see a small little baby mouthpiece tube inside of there. You can grab that and pull the whip through the wooden part, remove the stubby mouthpiece, and then fully remove the wooden pyramid from the whip.
Does that even make sense lol
edit: uploading video, gimme a sec
LOL bro, I'm pretty blasted right now and I had to read that twice. But the wooden part and the tube were meant to separate?
And yah, I had to cut a wire and take a few pics for Tina Marie but she started mailing out my replacement PA before she even asked me to do all that
So I tried it again, no worky. Taste and warmth, but nothing close to visible vapor. The only thing visible is a hint of fog but yeah, no go. My friend had had it for a year or so, and I can only assume the batteries are to blame. Earlier today before I tried and failed, I bought two packs of Maha 2700s from amazon.
The light is there, and glows, but I have never seen the glow be very intense on this unit.
People always claiming huge clouds of vapor and the simplicity of this thign make me sure these new batts will produce some atmospheric delight
The 2700s are powerful, you might gross up a few trenches with those. Batteries are the only replaceable thing about the box, really, discounting the stems. I'm up for a few new ones myself, soon. Trying not to rely too much on the Logo Batteries until MF has some to sell me.
Thanks a lot for the video! I'm slowly taking out the tubing from the glass part... it's REALLY suctioned in tight.
I don't know where that's coming from. I sure don't claim 'huge clouds' from MFLB and I'm a people. I don't really recall anyone else making that claim. Can you perhaps point to a few of these claims people are always making that I seem to have missed? TIA.
FWIW I think you may have a case of unrealistic expectations here. MFLB has a pretty tiny load (something close to .1 grams on average?), of which only a fraction (that small part actually against the screen) is able to produce vapor. There's only a few mg of THC available for any given hit at the most, not very easy to make a huge cloud from that.
IMO huge clouds from any portable is a tall order. If you really want that (and you wouldn't be alone there) I don't think MFLB is for you. It's strengths are stealth, modest power, economy of herb used and kind of a 'folksy feel'. Not huge clouds.
The bulb is never all that bright, but it's a good indication of proper battery contact. Pay attention to it until you learn to drive the box.
I suggest if you want bigger clouds and the same sort of format you check out the Flash Vape. It gets around some of your problems with MUCH more power and a MUCH bigger load. It gains in size in the process and sacrifices stealth but clouds big enough for most are possible.
Anyway, who are these "People always claiming huge clouds of vapor", aside perhaps from the fellow trying to sell his box to you?
Me. I can blow mad clouds with my MFLB. You just have to learn how to stroke her right.
And Vitolo can make it rain with his MFLB he is so good at blowing clouds.
