    Does anyone know if Magic Flight will sell a bare-bones Launch Box, i.e. one Box with no accessories? If so, do you know the price? Thanks

    No idea but you might want to ask about some reputable ebay sellers for that :). Ive found some bare bones sales but i dont know the sellers well enough to comment


    ETA Question -
    Ok first go with herb in the box and im wondering did anyone else notice extra dry mouth with the box or when it was new? When i was doing practice runs without anything in it i noticed it but figured it was just the hot air through wood. But as im messing with it to get the temp right im getting dry mouth far before any real effects. Kept going but for being the same batch of herb its vapor is way moure moisture rich in my solo. Is that just a wood thing? Will it go away with use?

    On a side note im assume the stem and battery get easier too because they are super snug almost have to force them in to get started. So far the pushback ring isnt an issue but that first bit of the battery opening is very snug.

    In a fun way you might get an argument from some of us Yanks on that. You see, while what you call a "rubber" is what we'd call 'a pencil eraser', "rubber" here is slang for condom. Some here consider a nearby but discrete container of condoms to be mighty handy.........

    Yes, I think we all noticed that.....if we were paying enough attention of course. It's been widely discussed, the general advice is to keep some water handy and keep sipping it to replace the evaporation from all the hot dry air you're suddenly pulling in. Eventually this becomes less and less an issue I think as technique and tolerance change and develop?

    The battery fit is also well discussed. Including instructions for tightening up the spring because of poor contact when it's too loose. Some of us just learn to tip the battery a bit as you push it in, others can't seem to get the knack of it I guess. Variations in battery diameter are also a factor, as is roundess (that is you sometimes find batteries that are tight one way, but loose when rotated). The latest factory batteries seem to be better in this area.

    But, the bottom line is the ring is a spring, and being SS is not that good a spring. Like the stem tightness (which changes with moisture content) it's part of what makes the box such an individual device. Like many, I own a couple for MFLBs. They all have small differences in their performance, some significant, some not. IMO part of the charm, really.

    Like friendships with people, your relationship with the little rascal is due to evolve. Enjoy that process, soon you'll be fast friends you'll find yourself automatically shaking between hits........

    Okay, eraser, haha :rofl:

    Noticed the battery fit also, had to replace 2 out of 6 batteries. The first was annoying out of the box and the second just crashed unlucky on the concrete, not properly fitting anymore.

    If you already own an Mflb you can get a bare bones thought the conisuers club.

    Indeed, the Connoisseurs Club have bare LB listed at $69 for the maple, $89 for the cherry and $99 for the walnut.
    But you'll need to input a valid LB serial number to enter the club, so I guess it won't be useful for a first buy.

    Yes, my understanding of this is that it's meant for those who already own a complete kit and who want to own a replacement/additional Box without needing every accessory twice.

    Actually, since I own a walnut LB kit and the PA, buying a maple bare box could allow me to keep the walnut at home, using it mainly with the PA, and to bring the maple one with the batteries I already own when I'm out... For the price, might be worth it...

    Thanks for reminding me of the Club !

    Found the club and have applied for membership. I already have a MFLB all pimped out with all the accessories. Thanks for the help!

    When BlissSville was the distributor of MFLB, they offered by telephone order a "Bare Box" for $65.
    Since this is not an advertised item, a phone call would be the best bet.

    Sorry for my spelling of conisewer earlier.

    I'm tempted as my e nano is cherry and a nice cherry LB to match would look lovely.

    Hi,

    I don't know how to make an new post, so sorry if this is out of context. I just got the power adapter and LOVE the control, I'm able to be about 3x as efficient with my stuff by keeping it cooler. I just had one question. Is there a difference in what chemicals are released at different temperatures? Is there some THX that's released at the higher end of the temp. spectrum, or any other notable other components? Just trying to figure out the best way. Love the orbiter too, but probably best for if you like to burn hotter temperatures.

    ROFLMAO! Ohhh OF that was awesome! I have alot of international online pen pals so things like that crack me up. When my brother comes back to visit the states from Germany i have to remind him to say cigarette lest he get an unintentional surprise ;).

    Thanks for chiming in. I started reading the whole thread (which im still working on) but for its massive size i have been relying mostly on the search feature which didnt result in much on that particular observation.
    Im so excited to have a vape i can carry without bringing a while freakin back pack every time i go out.

    Thanks Horst i want to get some low discharge ones but finiacially that has to wait till next month maybe they will be a smoother fit.

    Ohhh do they have etched ones? I really want a celtic tree but now that i have a plain maple i dont need duplicates of all the stuff.

    I will have to pull out my binder and see the web address they came from but i have a sheet of the main canabanoids and terpenes and their optimum temps that was sent to me. If i can find the link i will send it to you

    i thought it was my subjective impression. :) i'm pulling clouds for ages on the middle setting and the herbs just don't want to get brown. feels like a relaxed hookah session contrary to the quick hit with the batteries. :)

    I'm finding if I want a quick hit, I have a jar of ABV (knowing it's about 30% THC) and use either my gravity bong (the bukket, AWESOME tool from my college days) and just put in 4 ice cubes and let the smoke sit for a minute or two to cool off, or use my water bong. I try to to do this pretty rarely as this is way less healthy than vaping!

    I too find it hard to get a rush with just the vaporizer, unless I take several bowls and burn it hotter. But once the rush subsides (after 15 or so mins) the high is pretty similar I find.

    I have all three, and @Vicki nailed it when she told me cherry was the best. It has a slightly "sweeter wood taste" my walnut tastes most woody to me, but i like it for that reason. The maple seems really neutral to everything. Slight wood taste and thats pretty much it. I dont know if its a true flavor difference or psychological, that's my answer. Hope it helps @kente777

    Any thoughts on how to clean the orbiter? The residue build-up starts to taste not-too-pleasant.
    Also, any safe/good flavor enhancers to add to the water for the orbiter for a different tasting experience?

    Peace and Love :-)

    Either use PBW or salt and ISO. Some of us like using the concentrated RezBlock, it helps keep pieces cleaner by not letting the reclaim stick to the glass.

    I rinse my orbiter after every session with hot water. No probs.
