    I disagree, I think he did share out experience here. He's not the only guy to tell you 'it's normal for them to be tight, use it some it'll loosen up.

    IMO you just don't want to hear that, which is fine I guess. I too encourage you to warranty exchange the box or whatever makes you happy.

    The advice you asked for stands, though.

    This here is my experience. 8 boxes bought, one with a very tight battery retention ring/spring that was a pita for two days. 4 years later the battry falls out if you don't hold it in.

    My advice was plainly stated I thought but: @kente777

    I would recommend you use your box for a dozen or two sessions and if your not happy with it after that send it back for a new one.

    I wasn't workin' in Butthead mode yet !

    Ok, without my FB for 2 days. I have an Arizer Solo, and while it does the job just fine, I find it is boring to use, and of course, it's known for its notoriously difficult draw.

    I find the Magic Flight is more interesting to use, definitely more stealthy, and draw is easier to control (IMO). I also conserve more product than the Solo.

    I'm hoping to have my new cherry box before the weekend. Looking forward to a new taste.

    I miss my Magic Flight Launch Box!!

    PS. I get my first Orbiter next Wednesday. :)

    Hi guys. Ordered and recieved my MFLB on Monday. Been playing with it all week and I can't get the hang of this thing and yesterday it charred pretty badly in a certain spot and left a black spot on the screen and the whole unit smells terrible now. Is my unit ruined?

    I'm no novice. Been vaping exclusively for 5+ years. PD, Solo, Underdog, and others.... I found the microhit technique to work the best so far but it easily chars. My material is bone dry and ground finely. Not overpacking or packing and I always smack it around to mix it up after each hit.

    Is my MFLB screen ruined now from this little charred spot and smell or will it go away?

    No, it's not ruined. Take a q-tip dipped in 91% ISO (lightly damp, not soaked), and gently clean your screen. Burn off the alcohol for 20-30 seconds (push and hold battery in) and you'll be good to go.

    The Flight Box can combust, but this is something you need to avoid. We've all done it at least once. Just don't make it a habit.

    Welcome to the Magic Flight club! I absolutely love this little box. You will too. You can't beat its stealthiness and simple but cool form factor. Just be patient. There is a bit of a learning curve.

    Also, the company has the best--bar none--warranty in the business.

    Feel free to ask questions and again, welcome. :)

    The screen isn't ruined, but you're stuck with that charred taste for a few trenches. It will eventually go away.

    It seems from your description that although you are shaking the LB, it's not effective. Possibly your material is adhering to the screen (really sticky stuff does this) so you need to give it a really good knock to dislodge it and move it around. Also, keep experimenting with your draw. You will develop an instinct for removing the battery to avoid charring. If you persist, the day will come soon when you realize that you haven't burnt a load for a while, and after that you will find it impossible to combust unless you do it on purpose (or have an accident).

    Is the orbiter warranty confirmed? I haven't seen any posts about warranty replacements yet ...

    Website says so, I don't wanna find out first hand. Rather just keep it in one piece ;)

    I have found the Orbiter to be sized right for the MFLB and provides a good water experience. You do need to pay attention to your technique, especially while you are getting used to it. I had never combusted in my LB until I first used my Orbiter. For me, I just had to pay attention at first as you don't get any of the vape temp feedback in your mouth to remind you to pay attention to draw technique.

    I knocked mine off my 30" tall desk the other week, straight onto its side. Not a scratch here either! It seems a sphere of the orbiter's thickness is pretty sturdy. I'd be more worried about it landing on one of the joints, but if you have the stand and whips connected there's a good amount of stuff that can get in the way of a direct joint hit.

    I'm really digging the Orbiter, though. It's the perfect MFLB companion. Those milky rips are something else :D

    Yeah, what he just said! Given the source, high praise indeed.

    Both of you should take a bow IMO.
