Best Portable Vapes for 2017 Reviewed -The Magic Flight Launch Box
The Magic Flight Launch Box or MFLB has a reputation for being one of the best stealth vaporizers on the market. It certainly is one of the stealthiest, but is it still one of the best for 2017? Let’s take a quick overview before we get into the full review, shall we?
- Very small, compact, pocket sized
- Ultra stealthy
- Great tasting vapor when used correctly
- Fastest heating vaporizer, heats to vaping temperature within 5 seconds
- Relatively easy to use
- Extra batteries may be purchased/used for extended time away
- Lifetime warranty
- Best vape in it’s price range
- Still the smallest vape on the market
- Slight learning curve to get the best vapor
- Can burn herbs if overheated
- Slightly awkward to carry so many pieces when on the go
- Batteries don’t last very long (roughly 8-12 draws per battery)
The Magic Flight Launch Box or MFLB as it is known by some is unique in the vaping world. It is by far the smallest vaporizer I have ever used and the only one made almost entirely of wood.
As far as the look and feel of the device are concerned, both are spectacular. It’s hard to believe just how small it is until you have it in your hand. Also because it’s mainly wood, it’s incredibly light as well. On it’s own, you hardly even feel it in your pocket.
When I first saw the MFLB I was pretty skeptical that it would produce very much vapor but I thought it was quite a novel and attractive design and ordered it out of sheer novelty (I am a woodworker in my spare time, so just the fact that it was made of wood was enough for me to want to try it).
When it arrived and I finally had a chance to try it for myself I was amazed at how well it performed. The vapor comes out pure and tasty, albeit a little on the hotter side. It does take a bit of a learning curve to get the hang of it but after that it’s a breeze to use.
I find the best way to use the Launch Box is to press the battery in to the battery hole on the side of the unit (as seen on the right) for about 3-5 seconds, or until you begin to see some vapor forming in the herb trench as you look straight through the draw hole.
Once you see some vapor is forming, take a long slow draw for about 7 or 8 seconds while continuing to hold the battery in, and then release.
I usually continue inhaling for another second or two to capture any additional vapor that has formed. I personally found that holding the battery in any more than about 8 seconds would result in burnt material which is exactly what I am trying to avoid. Once I got the hang of it I found I was able to get good reliable vapor every time I used it.
There is another technique that many users favor called sipping which involves the same process of holding in the battery for about 5 seconds or until you see some vapor through the draw hole, but instead of a long slow draw, users take small “sips” of vapor over about a 10 second period.
I personally didn’t like that method as well because the chances of burning the material are much greater, and it happened to me a few times. You really need to keep an eye on it as you go. To cool it down if it starts to overheat, simply take a slightly longer “sip” or draw. For those who prefer a hotter vapor, this is the preferred method of use.
The starter kit really contains everything you need including a little carrying bag, wall charger and cleaning kit. The charger also works on regular AA or AAA batteries as well and is one of the few around that will charge one at a time.
You can even order the kit even with a little grinder that fits right over the opening (as seen on the left) so you can grind your herb right on the Launch Box itself and it will be neatly deposited right where you want it: the vaping trench.
I do recommend if you are buying this vaporizer to buy a few extra batteries right away as it won’t be long before you kicking yourself if you don’t. Each battery only last for 8-12 draws so for most that’s only about 2 or 3 good sessions.
The way I look at it, you get about 30 minutes of use roughly per charged battery. If you know you’re like me and you need a good 3-4 hours in the day, you’ll need to carry 6-8 batteries with you. If you’re willing to do that, this vaporizers is great. Certainly the best vape for the price, that’s for sure.
Overall I would recommend this vaporizer to anyone looking for the most discreet vape, who likes good clean vapor a little on the hotter side and who is comfortable carrying a few extra batteries in the car or maybe a purse. As long as you have a few spare batteries with you, the Magic Flight Launch Box can keep you smiling all day long.
The vapor quality and intensity are great and I was surprised how well it vaped through my material so thoroughly. The heat distribution throughout the trench is remarkably even and as long as you don’t hold the battery in too long and burn your material, the vapor is smooth and pure but pretty hard hitting.
For anyone who is serious about vaping, or even for those looking to try a vaporizer for the first time, the Launch Box is a must own. It comes with a lifetime warranty and is about half the price of most other portable vaporizers on the market today. Use the links below to check it out for yourself!
