    Erh, excuse me. Can I ask how y'all are managing the following problem enough to be cooing here so blissfully ... STATIC. I am the owner and operator of a Walnut Launch Box, and everytime I go to use it I remember why I put it away. STATIC. The plastic lid is made of a plastic that hasn't been in some way treated to prevent STATIC electricity from charging the substance so it pops up and clings to the lid, away from the hot bed. Shake it to mix? Another volley of yerba volanta up to the light, away from the heat. Ayyyy! Take mercy y'all, don't make me read 925 pages of tips and tricks, someone please tel me, what d'ya do?

    I've never had a problem with static electricity making my bud stick to the top... I mean, after some use, small amounts of vapor will condense on the underside of the lid and small particles may stick, but I've never seen static electricity make unvaped flower cling to the top of it.

    I honestly think you're a trend setter here, nobody to my memory has brought this up. For sure it's never been an issue with me.

    If the static is bugging you, how about wiping the inner surface with an old dryer sheet (you don't want the perfume part I think.....). They use a silicone based agent in them to kill 'dryer cling'. A quick wipe puts enough conductive film down to last a very long time.

    I hope you get it sorted out somehow, it really is a neat little vape.

    I've actually had this happen to me once. I was outside in the snow and wearing a pair of gloves I don't usually use. Somehow, handling the box with those gloves caused material to cling to the top of the lid and stay there. I haven't had this problem since, and I haven't worn those gloves since. Perhaps it's an item of clothing or a surface you're sitting on or in contact with?

    For all of those hesitating on what to buy first.. I would definitely agree with getting the PA first. Before it, I didn't think much of it because I was already so used to rotating batteries and it was nothing.. but now with the PA, even that seems like a chore.

    I get this all the time, a lot of it has to do with where you live I think (humidity, etc). After 2 or 3 hits, the static is mostly gone. The problem is always the first hit of a pre-packed trench, that has then been upended due to travel. It's always the small particulate that sticks to the plastic, sometimes covering almost the entirety of the visible surface. Shaking and settling help, but there will always be little bits still stuck. Once a majority of the moisture is gone, I find that a vigorous shake whose motion forces the plant matter against the window cures this issue (for me).

    My main problem is losing plant matter out the back of the unit, either from vigorous shaking or blowback after using a water device.

    If herb gets stuck to the top I like to slide the lid open and close it real quick like, it usually knocks the green off.

    Try putting your finger on the opening to the air way your herb is getting into and drawing hard so as to suck it back in.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, @0F that's the ticket. In my case this was a real nuisance. More of the botanikstoffe was lifted and splayed against the porthole than in the trench. I live in the SF Bay area, and on the hillsides we get huge variations in humidity over any 24 hour period. I also think they must do something normally to prevent this headache, most people aren't bothered, and on my unit they didn't. I was looking for an antistatic something and the dryer sheets do the trick. Good enough. Thanks!

    A couple of thoughts, moisture and static aren't mutually exclusive.....lightning comes to mind as a somewhat showy example?

    Secondly, while condensation happens on my lids early on it all turns to water vapor at working temperatures and conditions. The bud is quite dry before serious vapor happens I think.

    While I've never had 'blowback problems' from WTs many of us have great success with partially blocking the entrance of the vent slot to the bowl area (it's deeper and wider on some units than others). I use a little wedge shaped piece of tape. Air still gets around the end and over the now more narrow gap between the top of the tape and the cover.

    Shallow (and narrow since it's round bottomed) slots don't seem to have a problem here.

    You're very welcome. I'm glad it helped you. IMO a pretty neat trick, I've used it many times since it was first suggested to me.

    So magic flight got back to me and said I need to upload a photo to show the issues. So I did one better and I have a version of each power adapter.

    [​IMG]


    The 2.0 adapter suffers from having an inadequate strength wire to feed into the battery shape.

    The 2.0 is lighter and doesn't fall out of the box because of its increased girth.

    They both seems to provide similar amount of power.

    Warranty time!

    What is the average lifespan of the PA? Is there anyone that hasn't had to use their warranty for the PA? I'm almost ready to commit to the PA, I'm just concerned about the potential inconvenience of needing to use the warranty, which it seems like a lot of people with the PA have had to. So, what is the average approx. lifespan for the PA assuming multiple uses per day?

    I've had mine since the beginning of January and it's still running strong. I'm still saying it's the best accessory that I've bought for my mflb.


    I purchased a cherry stem for my cherry box. Now just want a cherry Finishing grinder, I'm hoping they come back to mass drop soon.

    They put them out just as soon as they found out you'd paid your credit card down some.....

    Didn't you know that?

    Pretty sure they'll be gettin' $100 from me in May for an orbiter and walnut Dart stem as well. Way too nice not to have one of each. Glass for life ! Gotta jump on that.

    You guys remember me mentioning I lost my orginal Maple box about a month ago?

    Was just walking outside and there it is. Sitting on top of a snow bank that's melted down, all majestic and shit. Still loaded with the keif I put in it!

    It's pretty swollen, it's really hard to move the lid around. But still works like a charm.

    Here's a pic or two,
    [​IMG]

    See how the lid barely covers the trench now?

    @stickstones you know man, I never have luck like this and it has made my day :D

    @axakal yeah I'm not sure if I'm going to use it! Lol. I took a quick hit from it just to see if it would work, and the taste was.....yuck! Lol. I emailed Magic Flight to see if I would qualify for some form of warranty.
