Portable Vaporizers: Magic-Flight Launch Box

maple_box_copy__85794.1355275357.1280.1280The Magic-Flight Launch Box is a surprisingly capable portable vaporizer. Super stealthy, it fits in the palm of your hand. When using batteries, you can vaporize without detection just about anywhere. Unfortunately, the battery life leaves much to be desired. If you are a moderate to heavy user, I think you will find yourself traveling with a ridiculous supply of batteries in various stages of life, unless you spring for the power adapter or a high quality charger and extra batteries.

Price: $119 (Power Adapter adds $59)

Power Adapter to the Rescue!

Fortunately the talented folks at Magic Flight now offer a power adapter that fits all generations of the Launch Box. It includes a wall adapter and a 12v car adapter. With this accessory, the MFLB can almost become your at home full-time vaporizer.

Constant Product Improvement

I’ve purchased 3 launch boxes at this point and continue to be impressed as they continue to refine their product. Why 3? They all still work. The second was purchased to have a clean unit to ship ahead to my destination while traveling. And the 3rd was a gift.

Overtime, they’ve improved the design and construction of everything. For example, on the first generation you got a rubber band to hold the lid in place when pocketing the unit. Now there’s a nicely built in latch that keeps it securely closed. The new units also include detailed instructions on how to get the best possible vapor out of the unit.

Dealing with Batteries

If you’re determined to make use of the Magic-Flight Launch Box with rechargeable batteries, it’s best to invest in a quality charger that will condition the batteries and let you know when their useful life is over. For your own sanity, invest in:

Quality Batteries

Powerex AA 2700mAh NiMH Rechargeable Batteries with holder- 4 Batteries Per Pack

Quality Charger

PowerEx MH-C9000 WizardOne Charger-Analyzer

Don’t skimp on these items, you will find yourself frustrated fast. If you don’t require constant portability, go for the power adapter and use the supplied batteries and charger only as needed.

Learning Curve

As with most portable convection vaporizers, there’s a significant amount of learning to do if you want to get the best vapor possible. Slow and low draws are the name of the game. If you put this to your lips and start pulling like it’s a Volcano bag, you will likely be disappointed. Take the time to read the suggested methods in the manual, they’re really great. However this will never be a good vape to pass around a party to the uninitiated.
