    You should be fine. Let it dry out completely. The electronics inside aren't complicated enough to be damaged by water. It's literally just two stiff wires with the screen affixed between them. Just do everything you can to dry it so the wood doesn't get funky.

    I've had the MFLB for over 3 years now, but have only used it about 5 times and that was when I first got it 3 years ago. The reason that it hasn't been used in all this time was that I just didn't like it. It made me cough no matter how small of a hit I took. I didn't like the taste. My lungs didn't like it and the hits just didn't produce the desired result. I watched every vid and read almost every suggestion, including those on Wiki on how to hit this thing, but for me, it never worked well enough for me to want to use it again. As a matter of fact, in the thread titled "Best and worst vaporizer purchases", I listed the Box as my worst.

    Fast forward to about 7 days ago. One of my sons came to visit me from San Diego and has spent about 7 days with me, crashing on the couch. I gifted him a Purple Days a few years ago but he left it at home so I thought, fuck it, I'm gonna recharge the batts and give it to him to use while he's here while at the same time, get a chance to try out the new finishing grinder that I won in a contest about 6 months ago. The only reason that I kept the Box for as long as I have was as a back up in case my LSV died.

    So after a bit of training (of which in the past, never worked for me), I gave him the box to try. First try and he produced some very light vapor clouds and he liked it a lot. Passed the box to me. I thought, ok, I'm gonna give this another shot and lo and behold.................no coughing, nice taste, small wispy vapor clouds, but.............I got ripped but here's an even bigger surprise. Using the exact same bud that I have been using in my LSV, the bud put through the Box got me high almost instantly whereas the LSV with the HUGE vapor clouds took about 10 minutes to reach full effect. Why that is, I have no idea. Also, the high wasn't near as stoney but equally as high, which probably has to do with the temp differences.

    What I really liked about it, besides the instant high and the less couch-lock high, was the ease of use as compared to my LSV. Put finishing grinder on Box. Grind goes directly into vape from grinder. Insert battery..........hit. Shake............hit again..............shake...........hit again. Easy peesy. No messing with an AC cord, glass parts, bowls, bongs, transfer wands, stirring tools, waiting for heat up, etc etc.

    Now I have no idea why it is so much pleasurable to use than what it was when I first got it. Maybe it's because of the super fine grind that the finishing grinder provided, or that the batteries are holding a bit of a weaker charge being that they are almost 3 years old, but whatever it is, the Box is no longer on my list of worst purchases. I haven't used the LSV for about a week since my son's been here and have just been hitting the Box and loving it. Do I miss the clouds? Yeah, kinda, but for now...........this is a really nice change of pace.

    I believe it's the grind… More vapor, less hot air…

    lwien welcome to the wonderful world of Magic Flight. Maybe it was just time to mix it up after a few years using the LSV, the change to a conduction is a change to the head. A long slow draw breathing through my nose hitting native always pulls the biggest Vapor from the little box for me.

    Now we Just have to get a Vapir NO2 in your hands.

    I think you just stumbled upon your perfect way to hit it.

    Back when I got my mflb, I almost gave up on it and had actually shelved it. Then I decided to give it another go and not give up.

    I can now blow pretty damn big clouds with it and am very happy.

    Does Magic Flight still sell the Bubbler? I don't see it on their site.

    Or is there a better/cheaper option out there? The MFLB makes me cough like crazy, as does smoking. So I'm looking for a way to cool the vapor in the hopes that will fix it.

    From what I've been able to gather, magic flight discontinued the bubbler in anticipation of a new product. I'm not sure if that product was the concentrate box, or if they have something else in store. Pipesdaddy has a very similar bubbler (if not the same exact one) in stock for $40. If you want a really cheap test bubbler, you can easily make one out of a water bottle. Good luck!

    Have link?
    I searched through their site & couldn't find it. But I don't recall exactly how it looked & I don't want to grab one that won't work without modifying it.

    You may also need a 18mm to 14mm adapter if you are using magic flight's water pipe whip.

    Life. I will be using the box waaaay more now. Glyph batts are charging, haven't tried them yet!

    Edit: glyph batts are awesome, I don't find them over powering, but it's nice to hav the option of houndin on them, also I got a shorty eds stem. Lovin that so far and is gunna be way better for on the go stem use

    I actually just got a PA 2.0 for my mflb that I NEVER use. Now it's all I use during the day, gives me the best "day" high I find.

    After a bit more MFLB use, I think I need to clarify something here. The Box will NEVER replace my LSV for they are two different animals that address different issues and they each excel on their own but in different ways. For me, they're both keepers. I'll use the MFLB when I want a lighter high and when convenience is paramount, but when I want to be knocked in the head with a 2x4, the LSV is the right tool for that job.

    I feel the same way with my SSV.

    My SSV is my go-to day/night vape...if i could use it in my car i would! ha!
    My go-to portable was the VB2 but it has lost its luster....it does not get me where i want to be quickly enough. So i busted out the MFLB again, my batteries are pretty much shot...i can only pull about 3 hits per bat but that's fine since I use my PA (original not the new).

    When i first got it, i didnt like it much either...she was okay, got me high, but my tech was lacking. Now i can hit it a few effective ways and I love it much more than i used to! Need to pick up some wood stems...maybe some new bats....and definitely a new brush since i broke mine

    question about the Maud-Dib, are they going to add a screen add-on option if i want to use this to vape my herb and not oils?

    I do both, depending on what and where i am with my medication.

    Also i never knew they had a Connoisseurs Club .... =(

    I highly doubt it. The screens must be securely welded in to pass the necessary current.

    And while not needed (the first boxes didn't have them) the lack of light (it's not an LED......) in the MD would be an issue for many/most if you could easily upgrade to trenches for bud.

    Not something that lends itself to field replacement, which is why they replace MFLBs. I'm sure they'd love to sell you replacement screens if it was possible.....or at the least mail you a replacement rather than a whole new box.

    does the PA make the flight box easier to hit as well? i use it quite easily but i find that sharing it with others is a pain haha

    It makes a lot of difference if the problem is not knowing when to release the battery. You can set the PA at a power level that makes it difficult to impossible to reach combustion. This in turn allows you to find the right hitting technique without worry.

    That's awesome, does the PA continuously vaporize the weed while inserted in the MFLB?
