    I found an electronic cigarette with a subtle taste of tobaco, but no nicotine for 7$ at my local 24/7. So what i did is incorporate that into the vaping experience. I atttached a whip from the e-cig and now when I inhale i get like 30% water vapor and smooth as shit. I really recommend this to anyone who hasnt tried it. The high is so much nicer when ur not coughing ur lungs out.



    TIP: You can adjust water vapor to THC vapor by poking needle sized holes in the e-cig whip.

    Not water, either PG or VG. It does cool the hit down, though. I like vape spliffs as I call them, take a nice hit with the vape to get around 70% lung capacity, and then finish the hit with some ecig. Currently loving Halo's Sub Zero, so mentholated it's amazing :D

    I need to make a draw stem that can attach to both the e-cig and my MFLB, but your method is good, because that e-cig hit will help you inhale the vape deep into ur lungs. I never vaped before i got the MFLB a few weeks ago. I'm loving it, and am always trying to improve the experience because I really dont want to cough at all. At first i tried a bubbler with very hot water, and it was better, but this vape spliff method is awesome. I just ordered the power adapter and i have a concentrate tray, 2 grams of iso hash oil and 3 grams of morrocan hash which i need to try once the PA gets here. Any tips on vaping hash/ hash oil?

    The most important thing about using concentrates is making sure to maximize surface area. If your ISO is anything like my runs, it should be shattery/hard at room temp but more malleable when you handle it a bit. Roll a bit and then squish it to make a patty, and put it on the unscreened tray. More surface area is better since heat can be evenly applied. Same with your Moroccan hash. Play around with different temperature ranges when you get your PA, I used to hit it at max for huge clouds but lowering it a little bit made me change my mind about max temp :)

    I will soon be the happy owner of a PA 2.0 !

    I was thinking about buying one for a while, but the price + shipping cost + custom taxes for a delivery in France was a little off-putting if I needed to buy it directly from Magic Flight's website.

    I know that MD has been a little too much discussed here, but that's their offer that made me pull the trigger.
    In fact I also got myself a premium walnut box thanks to their impressive discount. I'll soon be able to better introduce my friends to vaporization this way, as I could keep the new one for myself and lend my first one to them (a one year old maple box that's still working perfectly) :)

    And hopefully the kits will be dispatched with the new glyph batteries, I think I'll really rediscover the Box with all that (also got the WPW and a nice glass water pipe recently).

    And for those who like links :
    Premium MFLB @$89.99 (maple @$79.99)
    Power Adapter @$49.99
    (and Water Pipe Whip @$21.99)

    My DD retired so I got some crappy mj from a close friend. Now I believe that crappy mj is responsible for the crappy hits I'm getting from the box. Must be the amount of resin that built up after vaping an 1/8th?

    I'm just gonna have to get a replacement.

    That sounds a little extreme, unless you're talking about replacing that mj. I've vaped herbs that don't deliver well but that hasn't ruined performance. And after cleaning and the real good stuff, taste was restored. Never had crappy hits from good weed, but have had crappy hits from crappy herb.

    Probably not from the resin unless you're still using that mj.

    While I think your woes may well be poor grade herb, I too think abandoning an abused box that can be rehabilitated is a sin at some levels.

    You only get to put a tiny amount of bud in there (I load about 1/8 gram at a time). Probably less than 20 mg total available under the best conditions. Go to lower tier herb and you can easily get into 'not enough for the job' country. Hand in hand with that is the extra water that may be in the stuff you're using will gum stuff up fast.

    I advise some dry burns and brush downs (sometimes a drop or two of iso on the brush helps) to get the deposits beat down enough to try a gram of top shelf well dried and ground fine? If it won't do it then, it's not going to. BTW don't mess with junk built up 'on the rails'. A very popular way to kill your box is to mess with that area and break even a few of the welds. It just gets worse and worse....

    Good luck.

    I just got a 2.0 and WOW that fit is tight. I can easily hold the LB by the PA's banana plug and shake it and it will not fall off for sure. It takes a good pull to get it out, actually. I can see now how some people are experiencing a looser battery fit after a while.

    That said, it works beautifully! It really took some doing to get my old PA to work. This thing is effortless, and the button is more comfortable. The rounded and insulated back is nice. I'm having to remind myself still that I don't have to push laterally to get this one to work, it's gonna take a bit to drop that habit!

    So this is day 2 of no weed combustion. I've been smoking weed daily for the past 4-5 years. Im sitting here vaping with my MFLB and e-cig, watching Semi-pro(I really recommend this movie when ur high, its too funny) and loving it. My MFLB is one of the best investments i've ever made. I've even cut back cigarettes to only 2 a day from 7-8! I'm replacing nicotine with a couple of MFLB hits and e-cig puffs. I cant wait till my lungs get healthy again, so I can really start hitting the basketball courts like I used to back in the day. Also I'm going to post a pic soon of my vaping kit :) hash, hash oil, ground weed,MFLB, PA 2.0, concentrate trey, 1 fit draw whip, and 4 batteries. Hopefully I can also find a cheap mini bubbler and a draw stem that can fit both my MFLB and e-cig.

    I'd also like to post a pic of my vaped weed. Like i said i never vaped before getting my MFLB so I'm new to this, and would like to know if im vaping my weed correctly.

    Looks like that e cig i got is worse than advertised. 500 puffs my ass, it already finished. I might get a halo sub zero these things look awesome. Can i ask u about vapor quantity, battery longevity, and cartage longevity and cost?

    Oh, sorry... Halo is a juice company, and Sub Zero is the juice itself. Sub Zero says it's got 3x the menthol and a little bit of mint... I love menthol, SZ is amazing! I also got a juice by a semi-local maker, it's dragonfruit :D

    I'll PM you a few links in a bit for better quality hardware :)

    Thanks! It was just the herb. It just didn't vape well in the box. I got some really great stuff here that is still sticky and vapes better already.

    Thanks!

    This post put a smile on my face. Its great to hear your life is changing for the better. Keep it up!

    I just got my flightbox in the mail and charged it up. Went to fire up the first trench, got one amazing draw. I got lots of visible vapor using a slow draw, completely unexpected amount compared to what my old magic flight would of got years ago. Then, the bowl ignited as I was exhaling because the pushback ring had failed to push the battery back as it's a very snug fit since it's brand new and I didn't pull the battery out. Combustion on my first hit of my new box. Luckily there's not much for the smell to stick to yet but I swore I was not going to get any combustion stains on my screen this time. I sacrificed the rest of my first freshly charged battery to do a good burn off on the screen but there's some staining and I don't get to start my session for another few hours =[

    Wow, I know how annoying that must be, but really the stain will not change the taste or performance
    in the long run. It's kind of like having brand new sneakers and then you scuff 'em. Get over it. :rofl:
    Shit; you can hit your Sub while you wait.

    Aw shit, sorry to hear! Give it a good clean and dry burn it for a bit. The stain on the screen should eventually disappear, but if it's giving you any trouble vaping, it might be worth sending an email to Magic Flight. Vape a bunch of herb so that it covers the smell of combustion. I've lit my trench the same way you did, with the batteries not disengaging even though I let go of it. Put the battery in and spin it around. You should notice that there's a point where it gets tighter and a point where it gets looser. Aim for the latter. The ring will stretch out in time.

    And update your signature ;)

    Haha, I don't even wan't to use that old Sublimator. The :mflb: is my new fancy toy :party:. I couldn't resist waiting so I grabbed the other 'almost charged' battery and gave another session a good go. The pushback ring already has started working, I jammed a battery in there backwards and spun it around a bit to loosen her up. These glyph batteries in this box are more powerful than my old 2700s were in my old box. I was combusting left right and center. Puffing on the box so hard the herb was swirling, still combusting a tiny bit of herb in the bottom of the trench. I'm going to need to adapt myself to pulse the power like my flashvape, this thing is a lot more powerful than I remembered it I'm going to need to readjust and maybe break these batteries in a little they're so damn hot! Me likey.

    No not just you, We all had to adjust our draw rate when those batts first came out.
    You might have a box that runs hot so pull hard and maybe pulse.
    I know you will figure it out. We love experimenting so much, especially with
    a new toy. :science:

    I can already see the days of nose-sipping to get a good hit and having difficulty toking while walking because of needing too much breath control are gone. Welcome back to my rotation Magic-Flight!

    I hit my LB walking all the time, and the only batteries I use anymore are the logo ones. It's a bit harder than sitting down and hitting it, but once I adjusted my technique it wasn't hard at all.
