Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer
(Last Updated On: July 2, 2015)
Over the past few days, we have seen some interesting debates on social media on which portable vaporizer is the best. We are fascinated with how people’s opinion can differ from one another. One thread caught our attention: the Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer – the smallest, one of the most-loved and best-seller portable vaporizers of this generation. 

If you have been reading the Smokazon Blog for quite some time now, you will notice on our product reviews, that we offer our own take on the way we see how these vaporizers perform and if they live up to  1, Smokazon standards and 2, the expectations based on the promises they set.  

So today, we want to take a look at the Magic Flight Launch Box differently: a Smokazon product review with a fusion of collective social media review (who we value the most, as they are the front liners in making this product really successful through their word of mouth and honest to goodness consumer reviews) 


Understanding the basics of MFLB 

But before we go into that, let us go into some basics first and learn more about the Magic Flight Launch Box Portable Vaporizer. 

The Magic Flight Launch Box Vape (MFLB as known to many) is manufactured by Magic Flight Inc. in the United States. It is a small, fast, no torch, no lighter, no butane, AA NiMh rechargeable battery powered vaporizer that you can use anywhere, anytime. It hit the scene in 2010 and since then changed the way we vape. 

Ever since we have been in the vaporizing community, this is the very first portable vaporizer that we know that is more than meets the eye. There are two things that you will find truly impressive with the MFLB: 

  1. The quirky and simple design but yet powerful features.
  2. The price that no other true portable vaporizer can match (currently at $118.99)

In our opinion, with a portable vaporizer that is efficient, powerful, yet as cheap as the MFLB, many manufacturers may struggle to come up with a model that will match the best qualities we found with it. 

Keep in mind when using the Magical Flight Launch Box Vaporizer is that it only vaporizes a fine ground herb and doesn’t sit well to large amount of material. 


From Vape Enthusiasts on Social Media to the Smokazon Blog: We’re All Blown Away

Have you seen our recent Definitive Guide to Top 5 Portable VaporizersIf not, we encourage you to check it out. If you have already, you know that we have featured the MFLB as the third best vaporizer after the Iolite (surprising choice) & the Arizer Solo (the Ultimate Favorite). 

Suffice it to say, we are blown away and enthralled about the qualities the MFLB has shown and we know that no one can match it with the vaporizer characteristics you would ask for. 

We have dug into different social media profiles and looked at the feedback of the community about the Magic Flight and learned that the feeling is almost unanimous – it is certainly loved by many. 


Magic Flight Launch Box Design & Built

“LOVE IS That Which Enables Choice”

“LOVE IS Always Stronger than Fear”

“Always Choose on the Basis of Love”

Hippie, eh? Whatever you think on the quote at the back of the Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer (taken from the rare metaphysics book by Forrest Landry), you can’t help but think that love relates to vaping too! 

What the social media is saying? The design of MFLB has gained so much rave on social media with one reddit user Myromaniac saying: “I personally love the simplicity; it simply represents the basics of vaping…” 

What Smokazon Blog is saying? We couldn’t have said it better. The Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer is so simple, yet hits home. More often than not are portable vaporizers that focus too much on pomp but falls short of performance.   


Magic Flight Launch Box Temperature

What’s frustrating about the Magic Flight Launch Box is its temperature is not flexible. There is only one heat setting which you may be wanting more. If you think about it though, that’s fine for on the go! We want the optimal temperature to vape and the MFLB delivers!

What the social media is saying? There are mixed and different views about the temperature settings of MFLB with tarzan_boy commenting: “Heavier users should consider something with better temperature control, imo. Accidental combustion is possible with the MFLB, so take caution if you’d like something without a learning curve.”

What the Smokazon Blog is saying? Well, this is indeed frustrating. We know how much more flexible we are with portable models such as the Arizer and Iolite. We also observed that the MFLB has the tendency of becoming hot when you inhale too hard. 


Magic Flight Launch Box Battery Life

It’s a missed opportunity for most (if not all) battery powered portable vaporizers because of their failure to design a longer battery life for their models. 

What the social media is saying? alec944 observes that: “it’s simply not strong enough for multiple people and will require battery charging to get a small group feeling group” tickdickler also noted that you need to replace the battery often (at least every 3 months). 

What Smokazon Blog is saying? It’s interesting to note that there are different variations as to how much the battery life can last (we are hard vapers so our will last at least 30 minutes). At the same time, you really have to hold on to the battery for at least a few second (6-11, may need time to figure out). You can’t hold it in for too long because that’s where the combustion and the irritating heat can start. 


Magic Flight Launch Box Vapor Quality: Is it Enough to Get You High?

Now this is where it gets a little bit of mess and debate because a few people may actually find that the Magic Flight Portable Vaporizer doesn’t give you a strong enough high. There are varying opinions. 

What the social media is saying? One worth comment is from Myromaniac who said: “One other thing I particularly enjoy is the fact that you can slowly build up with this one. A lot of people seem to be under the impression that the MFLB doesn’t get you high enough. I disagree. If you get the hang of it, you’ll get anywhere you like, because in the end it’s all the molecules, not the device.” 

What Smokazon Blog is saying? Each opinion is worth taking a look at and review. But at the end of the day, it’s all about the learning curve and depending on how hard or soft you inhale and how long you hold onto the battery unity. 


Magic Flight Launch Box Variations: Maple, Walnut, Cherry and the Laser Etch?!

When the MFLB was released, it was limited to Maple, Walnut and Cherry designs only. However, since this year, the Magic Flight Launch Box has been available in Laser Etch Series – that has the same features as the classical colors, but now embellished with exquisite laser etched quotes from Forrest Landry on the glass lid. 

Rating: 9/10

Pros: Craftsmanship, portability, design, price, and its easy to use. May require some maintenance but cleaning is a walk in the park (more on this later). A little amount of herb will be enough to give you a good high.   

Cons: Air from the MFLB you are drawing is hot. Battery only lasts up to 30 minutes. Could get your mouth slimy after pressing it multiple times against the pine – but you don’t really have to use it because it also has a mouthpie

Conclusion: Strong Word of Caution

While we and most social media folks find the Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer as one of the best portable vaporizers today, we would like to leave a strong word of caution. Many vapers, particularly veterans will not find the MFLB experience as truly satisfying. Perceptions and criteria differ when it comes to choosing what the best vaporizer is. Take note that the best experience depends on how you are living the vaping lifestyle at the moment. 

Obviously, if you are at the stage of using a high end vaporizer such as Volcano Vaporizer or the VaporBrothers, Magic Flight Launch Box is not something that can easily change those. But it can serve the purpose of being able to take it anywhere you go. At the same time, you should know that it may take a little bit of a learning curve to figure out how to achieve the best vaporizing experience. There are certain techniques that you have to try before you figure what’s the best experience for you. We find this a little bit odd for a small portable vaporizer like this. 

We here at the Smokazon Blog love the MFLB for the characteristics and features it has. This is a real deal given that its price tag is very affordable and yet equipped with many great features.
