The Magic Flight Launch Box aka MFLB has one of the unique designs for portable weed vaporizers on the market. This American vape is for use with dry herbs, it is pretty effective, and the price is very reasonable. The price is competitive at $119, significantly cheaper than most of the portable herb vapes in the same class. Considering the affordable price and unassuming design, it might seem like a waste of time.

Crafted in the USA, the Magic Flight Launch Box is exquisitely made. It is solidly built out of a single block of wood, and it’s built to last a long time. The only weak area is probably the screen, which shouldn’t be tampered with anyway. As long as one uses it correctly and does not abuse it, the Magic Flight Launch Box will serve users for many years.
The design is unique, but not very elegant. It’s not too big and fits comfortably in hand. Conversely, the square box isn’t very ergonomic. It’s one of the very few vaporizers that are made of wood and looks like anything but a vaporizer. There is a plastic tube for getting draws, which again isn’t a great solution but works just fine. The herb chamber comes with with a clear plastic screen (to see how much herbs is remaining in the chamber).
How Does Magic Flight Launch Box Perform?
It can hold vast amounts of herbs. This means there is no need to go through the ordeal of refilling the vaporizer too often. It does what we expect from a portable herb vaporizer. Unlike most other vaporizers that use 18650 batteries, the Magic Flight Launch Box works on the rechargeable NiMH battery. This is an approach we haven’t seen in any other vaporizer. Depending on a vaping style and needs, it can be either a blessing or a curse.
Despite the simple design, the vaporizer offers good flavor, especially for such an affordable price. Just make sure to use the sipping method. In other words, take slow, deep draws, just like drinking hot tea from a cup. And that’s the way the manual recommends to vape. Also, the vaporizer works better with ground herbs tiny. It might be a minor hassle but can significantly improve the experience. There are some weaknesses also. For starters, it’ll burn a few herbs on the sides in direct contact with the heating element. What this means is that towards the end of the session, the flavor will change a little. As a result, the taste will be burnt.
Magic Flight Launch Box Reliability
Although it might not have the sturdiest of the designs, it’s pretty reliable when it comes to performance. In fact, with proper use, the box can last for several months, if not years. Just don’t drop it and don’t tamper with the screen. Moreover, the American manufacturer has excellent replacement policies. In case of breaking something or having any issues, it’s very likely to get help in fixing it.
It produces a constant, decent stream of vapor. As far as the battery life is concerned, it’s as good as it could be expected from the double A batteries. Depending on the frequency if used, it can get anything from 50 minutes to several hours of vaping. The temperature of operation also plays a factor.
Magic Flight Muad-Dib Concentrate Box Review
To make vaping even more fun, Magic Flight have made this unique looking box for concentrates. It looks like a museum piece and is unlike any other vape box out there. It may look Steampunk, but anybody can enjoy the quality vape to be had with this cool vaporizer.
The Muad-Dib heats up to 900°F in only 3 seconds, so it is able to extract all the flavors without burning the concentrate quickly. This is why the dab size is important. The draw is very smooth, and all the nuances of the concentrate are present. Airflow is perfectly tuned to make for a strong pull from the hose.
What Comes With the Muad-Dib?
Everything needed to get started right in the cool felt-lined carrying tin. It has the loading tool, two rechargeable NiMH Glyph batteries, battery charger, battery protective caps, a replacement screen and the 1.5-foot draw hose with mouth tip.
If for no other reason at all, the lifetime warranty alone makes it a no-risk proposition. The fact that it is so unique looking and offers up such an excellent device makes it among the best dab concentrate vaporizers. For vapers who love the ritual aspect of vaping, it should feature prominently in their collection. Add the throwback, almost antique look, and it makes it a must-have.
Magic Flight Launch Box vs. the Atman Hachi vs. the Anlerr Holmes
The Atman Hachi
The Atman Hachi is a dry herb vaporizer with a built-in 1500mAh battery and one-button operation and a Brazilwood exterior, unlike the Magic Flight Launch Box which has no buttons, uses the charge of a single battery, to vape its material and a maple-wood build.
The Hachi and Launch both use conduction heating styles (they are also priced the same), but the Launch employs infrared heating, as well, thanks to the glass screen that also radiates heat.
The Anlerr Holmes
The Anlerr Holmes is a dry herb vaporizer with a 1000mAh internal battery that can reach a max power output of 30W that has an entirely different form factor than either the Launch Box or Hachi.
The Holmes is a pipe-style vaporizer with an LED screen in the bowl section to allow for precise temperature control (its range is 300F-435F) unlike with either the Hachi or Launch Box that have no such features. The Holmes is much cheaper than either the Hachi or Launch Box, and it loses in the long-lasting performance due to lower battery capacity.

Final Word on Magic Flight Launch Box
Magic Flight Launch Box is very hit or miss and recommending it isn’t easy. It’s a decent choice if you’re looking for a portable vape that’s affordable. As a result, the $119 price tag can be pretty alluring. However, elegant, powerful, and versatile vaporizers that produce thick, flavorful vapor do come with a price.

Can I purchase this in a store in San Francisco? We live in Mexico and I am worried the authorities will confiscate it coming into the country. Any experience with that?

If you don’t use it until you get home then there’d be no reason to confiscate it.
