    You should contact Magic-Flight directly. I think you'll find that they are very easy to deal with.

    apologies. the end of the wpw seems to be acrylic, too. you can blame the effects of vaporizing on my memory for that misleading previous information. :)

    I had guests over recently, and someone dropped my LB and busted the lid in 2. It was a Saturday night. I emailed customer service my claim with pics on Sunday. On Tuesday they emailed me to say sorry my LB fell on the floor and that I would receive a tracking number for my new one soon. I received my new LB Friday. Less than a week! And there was a new stem with it. The customer service is just phenomenal. I even got to use my damaged box (with the help of a rubber band) while I waited for the new one. I feel privileged to be a Magic Flight customer.

    Just wanna take a moment to thank VaporNation for a GREAT deal on my MFLB. They were incredibly accommodating and generous when the item I sought was initially out of stock. My product is exceptional and VaporNation is a superb company to work with. I "highly" recommend them to anyone seeking 'high' quality products and thoroughly professional service. BFreed

    Thanks for the advice Vitolo! I will give this a try. Unfortunately, the hole loosened the most at the front of the box and the least by the trench, so adding tape may prevent the stem from going in all the way. That said, do you think that Magic Flight would cover something like this under the warranty? It's more of an annoyance than anything, but it does somewhat makes the Launch Box less functional/convenient. Also, those two seconds after the glass stem flies out of the box and before it hits the ground... heart-stopping! :)

    It would not hurt to ask them about warranty. They are pretty open minded!

    Speaking of loose stems (or rather, loose holes, if I may say such a thing), I've noticed that my exotic wood boxes (cherry, cherry Art Cart and walnut Art Cart) all have bigger holes than my previous boxes. My glass stems are loosey goosey but my wooden stems fit wonderfully.

    Just wanted to share....

    I have heard tons of good things about it but yet some people just can't stand the mflb. Why is that?:shrug::doh:
    It is small, efficient, and fairly cheap with a lifetime warranty. I don't see any negatives...

    It's got a learning curve and requires preparation that's specific to it as a vape:
    • You need to learn the right inhalation speed
    • Your herb should very dry
    • Your herb should be very finely ground; salt-like consistency is a good goal. A coffee grinder or the Magic-Flight Finishing Grinder will get you there
    • You need to learn when to shake the herb around between hits, because all the heat comes from the bottom
    • It's works better with smaller loads; "less is more" isn't intuitive
    If you don't get all of those down, you can run into all sorts of trouble like uneven heating (leading to poor taste), sub-par vapor production, a smelly launch box (from using a lot of herb that's too moist), or even combustion (from drawing too slow or not shaking often enough).

    It probably sounds like a lot of work when you read it here, but IMO it's not that hard and the rewards are great. When you treat it right, you've got an unbelievably small vape that has a very personal & earthy feel, comes from a wonderful company with unbelievable customer service, and is relatively affordable. If you can't tell, I'm in the "love it" camp. :tup:

    I hated mine. Made me cough no matter how small of a hit I took. I just was never able to find the sweet spot, and believe me, I've tried. I read every user tip there was, and then some.

    Ah yeah, that's another point I forgot about. The vapor path is so short and direct that it's harsher than some vapes.

    I didn't hate it, but I didn't like the fact that I couldn't clean it under the screen so it would get rather smelly after some time. It was the first thing to smell when I got in the house. Also the fact that I had to carry lots of batteries with me. Oh, and the constant shaking between hits. Plus it's harsh vapor that made me cough so much. And the fact that small specs would get stuck on the screen between hits and got charred and ruin the taste.
    Otherwise it was a little beauty and I'd love to get one again eventually, just for the joy it gives you to hold it. Beautiful craftsmanship! :)

    I agree with all your points and would only add that the newer glyph batteries were a big improvement over both the original batts and the powerex. Its a very reliable little box and very easy to love once you figure it out.

    Question: do the ones with the laser-cut lids make it hard to monitor for abv? They look nice, but wouldn't want to hurt functionality.

    I also own a MFLB but i rarely ever use it. Its not that its a bad vape, just the other ones are better =).
    If i sit next to my pc the volcano is my friend.
    When i watch movies on the sofa i grab the solo
    When i go and play with water-tools and bongs i use the LSV.

    So the MFLB is the weapon of choice if i go outside and need to conceal my vaping. That rarely ever happens.
    Honestly i rather combust pure herb in the pipe than use the mflb. Mainly because it lacks the "punch". Its like sucking thru a straw that is too tiny. You really need to work for it while other vaporizers are more convenient. Compare the MFLB to how little you need to care about how you suck on a volcano balloon.

    All that does not mean its a bad device. If you are willing to invest some time you can get great results.
    But it not really a newbie vape. Since its very cheap many newbies buy it and i guess thats part of the problem.

    I would definitely buy one if i did not own one already because it works so great when you go to the cinema =)

    When I first read about the MFLB I thought the same thing, but great customer experience after great customer experience has made me realize they are the real deal.

    The MFLB team practises what they preach. I'm super impressed.

    I didn't like my MFLB either but then learned the sipping method and it is fine after that. I take 2 batteries with me. If there are better portable vapes for flowers they are always $100's more.

    My Magic Flight is still going strong after 2 years. My screen got messed up with Kief like qcee but it is ok now. I used the wall power adapter to cook the screen a few times.
