    I know of a reputable, authorised MF distributor in the UK that has the genuine Glyph batteries in stock, £8.95 for two...
    Dunno if I'm allowed to post a link or say who it is (off to read the forum rules)

    Aside from looks do those awesome wood stems add any flavor or help out in any significant way?

    I just used a poor man's concentration tray, It's got this catchy name called, Reynold's Wrap. So cheap it pays you to use it! Bubbly delicious Super Siver Haze BHO Vapors.

    Yes... the wooden stems add subtle variations to flavor and the feel on the lips. Each has a special essence .. and each has it's feel.

    i ordered from mf to germany and i'm not sure about the customs regulations in uk. my first delivery included the PA, the micro grinder, a herbal blend, and the essential book of wisdom(very entertaining while medicating with friends, by the way :) ) it took around 3 weeks and got stuck at customs. i paid 20% import tax on the whole lot including the shipping. cost me around 20 euro. before that i had ordered the vapolution in the past and the gn0me last fall, without any contact with the customs. my replacement box with the pa 2.0 also came throught without me being bothered by the customs, the package took about two weeks. so i guess, you can get lucky and your package slips through without additional costs.
    for the glyph batteries and further accessoires i know a good shop in germany, they do ship to the rest of europe, too. the owner told me, they will get the pa 2.0 for the christmas season or a little sooner.

    Would you look at that! Now what would BDV call it?

    The New $80 Vapor Brothers Hydrator Magic-Flight Knockoff?

    In comparison to the Infamous, it's got 18mm on the mouthpiece and comes with a 18-14 reducer instead of a glass whip adapter. I wonder if the glass is thicker for the money?

    I also wonder if this is perhaps offered in conjunction with Vapor Bros? They do sell VB herbal blends…

    Looks like they got around to finding an "appropriate" piece for the LB like I asked... last year...

    :D

    Appropriate indeed! I used its "Infamous" cousin for a while and was almost exclusively using the launch box through it. The LB tends to make me cough if I go for a lung buster, and this little bubbler takes care of that nicely.

    And a size comparison photo:

    The base on the MF model looks slicker, and the mouthpiece a little shorter along with its wider joint?


    You know, it's too bad it doesn't have an MF logo on it somewhere. I'm normally not a big fan of logos on glass, but there's something special about Magic-Flight's.

    Yesterday I pulled out my box after being frustrated with it a couple months ago. The light inside barely came on but it got warm so I hit it without a tube or anything. I could taste the herb but didnt have any visible vapors. Anybody experience this?

    Yes...
    when my light barely comes on...
    I can taste herb but see no vapor.
    Charge batteries fully, and if not up to par replace them.
    When you replace your mflb batteries things always improve.

    If the light barely comes on, then it's most likely the batteries that need replacing. $10 gets you a pair of the new glyph batteries which are much improved over the old stock ones without the glyph on them. Tasting the herb is indicative that it IS heating up enough to vaporize some of the terpenes, but if that's as far as it goes and you're not getting visible vapor, I'm fairly certain it's the batteries. I can pull rips off mine that send me into a coughing spell if I want.

    What batteries would you recommend?

    I bought these a couple months ago so I'm just trying to get it right this time.

    Edit: Posted before I saw the post above mine. I will look into the new glyph batteries. Thanks Quetzalcoatl

    Another thing is the technique that I forgot to mention earlier. If you draw too fast, the incoming air will cool down the screen past the vaping temperatures. If you draw too slow, you can actually light the load on fire like I have a few times. This video is a very good guide for how to hit it right, it's how I learned!

    Now I know this may sound like a funny question, but I get shit loads of vapor but my herb isn't turning brown lol I've been running the same trench for approximately 14 (10+ second) hits. My herbs are bone dry, and produce vapor but won't turn brown! I love to vape but I like my cookies more, too fast of draw maybe? But I get lungs full o vapor.

    If it stays light brown, that could just be a characteristic of the bud. I know I've had some bud that turns black like used coffee grounds, and some doesn't get half as dark while still being vaped.

    Hmmm send me some for analysis.
    The power of the Box.
    I find that the MFLB extracts all the goodies with no problem.
    I always get way high when i use my MFLB ,higher than some of the other vapes i use.
    JDSupreme shows the best how to for the MFLB in the video above.
    One of the reasons i bought it as my 1st vape.

    Maybe your herb is immortal :mental: . Slow your pull if you want to cook those herbs.
    Are you using batts or a PA? With the PA you can crank it up a bit.
    Most of us are crying about charring, and you are concerned about your abv
    being green? Did it medicate you?

    I use the long slow nose draw, with the new batteries. The actual strain is only known but close family friend (it's his secret, some really really nice indica he found in Florida 25 years ago). I do know that the herb is more kief than crystals, if that explains anything?

    Mmm... the crystals you mentioned ARE what gets knocked off and turned into "kief." They're formally known as trichomes, the resin heads and stalks that shimmer in the light. If you grind up bud in a 4 piece grinder and shake it a bit, you'll see the trichome heads broke off and collected into dust/crystals/kief. Press kief, add a bit of heat, and you get hash. Anyways, my experience with vaping kief in the LB is that it turns darker faster than actual flower does. I've been lucky enough to get a few strains that were so good, the kief couldn't be vaped by itself on the trench, I actually had to press or scoop some into the unscreened concentrate tray because it was like 4/5 melt kief (it bubbled a bunch, cleardome bubbles and all!!).

    Like I said, it can be a characteristic of the bud itself. I'm assuming since your friend found it 25 years ago, he's been growing it for that long? If he's good about it he should have flushed it prior to cutting... one strain that I came across that is notorious for this is the Pre98 Bubba Kush I get from my #2 spot. It refuses to turn dark to the point where it will combust before it gets dark like all the other stuff I vape. I wouldn't think too much about it if you're getting satisfactory effects from it.

    Yeah they're really fuckin pretty plants, I've tried like absolute hell to figure out what they are but to no avail. Effects are satisfactory just the non color change was confusing.
