    After the first time I dealt with MF customer service, I was immediately hit with the thought "Damn....That was easy....and hassle free....and fast......and they were so nice...."

    It was as if they thought I was the owner's son or something and didn't want to piss off the boss. :lol:

    They must know how the vaporists get without their vapors.

    You really don't need to clean them. If they have gotten really gunked up, you can use a thick pipe cleaner with a bit of ISO on it to run through it. Just make sure you don't saturate the wood.

    Well the Magic Flight has over the last couple weeks become my main go-to over the Solo because of the experience.
    Take the same amount of bud to fill a stem. It takes me a full 12 min cicle (sometimes more if real good quality buds) to go through it. With the MFLB and some 2700's I hit it like 4-5 times and I'm done in 3 mins, often before I can feel anything... its much nicer having to spend 3 mins vs 12 mins each time you want to achieve flight.
    Another thing to consider is that the solo has a much harder draw (even with my modded stem). The mflb has no resistance and I don't have to use my chest muscles to breathe it in, I can normally breath in into my stomach. This is important to me since I have been trying to work on my breathing for my running, and I felt like smoking the solo and forcing myself to breathe in hard using my chest muscles over 12-15 mins taking a lot of hits before my runs just ruined my breathing for the run itself.

    However, the battery has a real hard time making contact with the negative right. I first noticed when I got this box that the ring seemed way more lose than my last one, but it worked... until as of late....
    I can no longer use my preferred method of using it without the stopper and having to push the battery in, as I've had to use increasing amounts of pressure pushing the battery in and to the side for it to work. Sometimes I look in and the light seems to be 1/2 its brightness and not putting out much of anything and I have to push harder and it works again. I have powerex 2700's, eneloop 2500's, and the stock batts and its all the same.

    I'm sure magic flight will help me out because they are awesome!
    I have had a magic flight since early 2011... man is it an awesome device.

    Try removing the push-back ring. It's not glued in and all you need is a pair of tweezers, or just something to hook it out. You can replace it if you find you prefer having it in. The loose ring is a bit trickier. You can (carefully) try to tighten it, as described in Vaporpedia: Can the contact coil be safety bent or pushed to be a little tighter? If that doesn't work then you have a warranty issue.

    Also, if you need your chest muscles to pull on the Solo then you're pulling too hard. Only increase your draw to the point where you start to feel resistance. Harder than that and you're fighting the design and actually making things worse.

    On Ed's Wodden MFLB stems, I use vodka, rum... or a regular proof liquor like it.
    Slightly dampen a pipe cleaner, and run it through a few times, before air drying it

    I do not use the push back foam... i like using my MFLB without it! I don't like using it because I don't like having to push in. The thing is that now I am forced to have some type of pressure to make the battery due to my ring. I have to apply side pressure in just the right area. If I'm not hitting it, it doesn't matter how hard I am pushing into the unit.

    Thanks for the link! I will check that out...

    And about the solo, what you mention is what I don't like about it. The design requires the device to have resistance... a solo rip (and by rip i mean filling my lungs) takes 2x as long as a mflb rip. I find I spend a lot of time working to get a hit and it is counter productive to me attempting to get my self to breathe from my diaphragm more... especially before a run... i still love my solo though.. they are just different vaps

    I use these, Powerex AA 2700mAh NiMH Rechargeable Batteries with holder- 4 Batteries Per Pack
    Link --> http://is.gd/xVxXqz

    They work better than the original batteries and you can use the MFLB battery charger. Only Negative - I had to peel off the wrapper and then use 91% ISO to clean the glue off of the battery. An easy task though and they fit better than the original batteries too. A little looser, but they don't fall out.

    I think you are talking about the old original batteries, they have new ones now (with the magic-flight glyph on them), which are generally reviewed as being better than the Powerex 2700mAh.

    yesterday i had my first expirience with the glyphed batteries and i am really amazed with the performance. i brought a vapor lung to an open air lakeside party, a buddy of mine brought his cherry mflb with the new batteries. we only used one battery during the night for constantly milking the box for several hours. a lot of people got vaped and introduced to vaping thanks to this little device yesterday. i don't even want to talk about efficiency. while the combusters soon ran out of herbs, our consuption rate was pretty low, even considering the fact, that everyone who wanted, was invited to try out a bag of vape.

    I still find this to be the smallest functional glass WT for the MFLB.

    You can use stoppers for a variety of things. Cork ones for spice jars, wine bottles, cigar tubes, etc. I think using one to plug up a joint to clean it up would be a good use. I'll have to go get some. Maybe a glass one since I'm partial to PBW and ISO for cleaning?

    I am pretty sure they are solid though. samirfuzzywuzzy, did yours have holes in it already or did you make them?

    I've bought some rubber stoppers from this site. Very inexpensive, and a large variety to choose from (with or without holes).

    They're pretty easy to find, several of the area hardware stores carry them. You can also buy them on line, for some reason they're usually packaged by weight. The cost per bag is about the same, but there's less in it....
    http://www.mcmaster.com/#tapered-rubber-plugs/=ntlyei

    Two holes are rare. But it's very easy to make holes. You need a piece of thin wall brass tube (think the same hardware store....) the size you want. Then file or 'scrape' a sharp edge on the end, evenly, all the way around. Then fill most of the hole on the other end of the tube, clamp it in the vice or grab with vice grips or even pliers and a block of something to lean on and screw the sharp end of the tube through the stopper. Either continuous rotation or back and forth, just slice through it creating a skinny rubber rod inside the tube. Sometimes a drop or two of oil will help if the rubber is fresh and tries to grab the tube too much.

    It's easier to actually slice through it with a round brass knife than describe it. They make tools for this, but no need to buy a full set for two holes (quality not withstanding):

    If you buy something on that site, I would recommend putting this little guy in your shopping cart before checkout. Best 2 bucks I've ever spent and makes loading all kinds of different vaporizers easier.

    OMG...I step away for literally a second and people are going crazy....

    The rubber stopper is a part of the pipe if you buy something like whats in the link.....if not; its just a rubber stopper with 2 small holes in it.

    wow now I'm excited talking about all these holes....

    That thing is cool. I usually just ask one of my server/waiter friends for a table crum-er.
