The Magic-Flight Launch Box is a portable vaporizer that works on a single rechargeable AA battery. Heat is generated through infrared (IR) and conduction. It is the smallest vape in the industry. One battery lasts about 10-15 hits, but an additional battery and a charger are included. The MFLB heats up in less than 5 seconds!
Various accessories, including a Power Adapter for use at home, have become available since the introduction in 2008.
MFLB product update summary:
2010: The edges of the box are now rounded.
January 2011: addition of rubber push back ring (helps prevent battery from draining and herb from combusting)
May 2011: Black tin with imprinted MFLB logo (the previous tin was silver and had a sticker on it)
July 2011: Click-Lock lid. Prevents the lid from opening when it is not in use.
September 2012: The Magic-Flight Launch Box is available in two new editions: Cherry and Walnut wood. A grinder that sits on top of the trench while grinding (for extremely easy filling) is also released.
February 2012: Herbal Concentrate Tray demonstrated at Spannabis.

Vaporizer Review: Magic Flight Launch BoxBy Vaporizer Info on 23-03-2011
My initial thought when seeing the Magic Flight Launch Box (MFLB) was, ‘Wow, this thing is tiny!’ It is hard to imagine that a piece of wood that is no bigger than the size of a box of matchsticks is able of releasing thick hits of vapor within seconds. This is a vaporizer that must be seen to impress. We’ve seen nothing but rave reviews, so we decided to test it out and see what the hype is all about.
The MFLB is available in two versions: with or without charger. Both versions come with two rechargeable batteries, an aluminum tin, a carrying pouch, a brush and a mouth piece.
Unlike other currently available handheld vaporizers such as the iolite (butane) and Vapir NO2 (built-in battery) the Magic Flight uses a single AA NiMh battery as power source. The battery can be inserted at the side of the vaporizer, and when pressed firmly its power will be converted into heat. A combination of infrared and conduction heating are applied to maintain a temperature around 380 Fahrenheit (183 and 202 degree Celsius). However, the temperature can be influenced by the draw rate.
Before one can vaporize, the acrylic (Plexiglass) slide needs to be opened and finely ground (this is important) herb can be inserted into the trench. The MFLB will hold a maximum of about 100 milligrams. Now insert a charged AA battery into the hole at the side of the unit. Wait for about 4 seconds, and start to inhale. Afterwards, the battery needs to be removed in order to prevent your herb from becoming too hot.
While it takes a bit of practice at first, things went much smoother after a few hits and overheating did not occur. Inhaling slowly allows for higher temperatures, whereas inhaling too fast can cause the herb inside the Magic Flight Launch Box to swirl, resulting in thin vapour. With the right use, the hits are thick and flavorful, almost as good as with many electric vaporizers.
The only downside about the MFLB would be the battery life, since one battery is good for about 20 hits. Therefore, carrying an additional battery is a necessity.
Our verdict: The Magic Flight Launch Box is an excellent pocket sized vaporizer that suits the needs of both beginning and advanced vaporists. It’s portability and stealthiness are unparalleled, and the lifelong warranty only adds to that. Recommended!

Magic-Flight Launch Box reviewBy Linn on 13-02-2011
The cutest vaporizer out there! It has got an authentic hand made feeling and fit's in the pocket. Doesn't need much preparation and is easy to clean. The infra red heating works very fast. Thanks to the glass screen you are able to see what's going on. If the herbs are grinded properly, they will spin around the chamber and that's why you will get lots of sweet aroma's. Recommended!
Magic Flight Launch Box reviewBy dash421 on 03-03-2011
The unveiling of the Magic-Flight Launch Box was very exciting. I had been reviewing this product thoroughly the past week and finally decided to give it a whirl.
Opening it was almost overwhelming but I soon realized that there is NO set up. Place the two high capacity batteries in the charger when you get it, because they'll be drained more than likely. I let the batteries stay on the charger while I caught up on my sleep.
Awoke to fresh batteries, sprinkled some herb in the box, took the charger off the wall socket, and placed one battery directly into the side of the vaporizer, and twisted it just a bit... Saw an orange glow behind the herb, and within 5 seconds the whole top of the glass was cloudy.
Inhaled the magnificence of the Magic Flight Launch Box, and was quite impressed.
My only con, is that the bowl size fits maybe a quarter-gram of herb... Other than that, I'm LOVING this device.
Definitely a good purchase for those who are trying to mask herbal smells, and smoke discreetly.
Magic-Flight Launch Box reviewBy Borya on 19-05-2011
I've been owning a da buddha vaporizer two years before i got MFLB. But one day i realized that if i bought a vaporizer not to ruin my lungs and to get higher its pure hypocrisy to smoke when i am outside on the go.So i did some research , read a few forum threads... and decided to get The MFLB... It came fast but it was held by customs.. so i went there and got it whitout any problem. 10 minute after i received it i was vaporizing.. and got stoned like a mofo.
What i do is push the battery into the hole and watch through the stem (u can see a red light through there) if vapor is forming. If there is vapor i do a small hit then shake and look again.. It starts coming faster and faster so i hit more ofter and shake after each hit(thats for the best taste). It need a bit of Jedi skill... but its not a problem for every user.
2 batteries u get a weaker than the higher mAH batteries u can buy. You can Use up to 3000 MAh batteries rechargable of course.. So my advice is to save some money not buying the orginal charger... and invest in better one with higher mAh batteries.. What I use is The original charger with 2 x 2700 mAH batteries(which i bought in the nearest shop) they charge for 5-6 hours and i can use one battery for bout 3 g of herb(thats bout 12-15 refillings of the herb chamber) so If you get 4 batteries charger with 3000 mah i can bet you can vaporize bout an 1oz of herb.
Magic-Flight Launch Box reviewBy Alistair on 23-09-2011
I've had my Launch Box for a year now and feel that the vaporizer gives a different vaporizing experience than other vaporizers on the market. Many of the reviews will tell you what this vaporizer can do but I want to focus on my personal experience with this vaporizer.
When I first started using this vaporizer I felt because of it's size and no visible vapor when exhaling, it wasn't an effective vaporizer. I now have to come to realize that this understanding was way off. This vaporizer gets you high and uses a surprisingly small amount of weed to do it. In other words this vaporizer is extremely efficient. When you buy it don't worry about it not working because you don't exhale (to much) visible vapor. Many people I have shown this vaporizer to feel like it doesn't work. After only a little while they get extremely high to realize how effective this vaporizer really is.
From my experience using this vaporizer I stand behind understanding how to use this vaporizer effectively. This video helped a lot in making sure I got the most out of each packed trench, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lz68fCk97fM
Another good thing to know is that if you buy rechargeable batteries and they don't seem to work for the vaporizer make sure to twist them until you see the light inside the vaporizer turn on. I wasted many rechargeable batteries this way because i didn't realize that the contact point for some rechargeable batteries are different than others. Also make sure to take off the plastic covering of the rechargeable batteries so it can fit well and touch the contact point more easily.
I hope this review helps others understand the Magic Flight Launch Box and to choose a vaporizer that works best for them.
Magic-Flight Launch Box reviewBy Visitor on 27-09-2011
This is a very good vape, but if you really want to pack a punch without a learning curve this is not your vape.
I needed to perfect the technique for a while to get some decent 'bong like' hits out of the tiny box.
It's perfect for outdoors although I'd recommend a Solo for the 'hard hitters' among us.

Great little vape that is well worth the investment!
Magic-Flight Launch Box reviewBy krusht on 23-11-2011
Toker since '65, quit in 80's, re-up in '75 - bad lungs (COPD) - tough to enjoy smoking&
choking - found my miracle 6 weeks ago - GUARANTEED BEST! - I have to admit, using the box properly was tricky at 1st, but their FAQ page is invaluable for noobs to the world of vape. I have used buddy's Volcano several times, but the Box? WAY gooder!
Because it allows a deeper inhale & I'm pounding deep tokes all day, I've see an improvement in my breathing - YES, it's true! A tipofthehat to Rick Simpson!
This vape may not be the 1st choice for all potheads, but it's #1 for portability, it's odorless, it's fast & the most fun re: tasting individual nuances.
If you're a veteran toker (or pot connoisseur), this is a whole new universe you're
missing if you don't get one or more of these babies.
I will appreciate any Email I get! firstname.lastname@example.org

Magic-Flight Launch Box reviewBy Visitor on 15-01-2012
Great little vape. I had purchased this vape as my first piece, and it far exceeded my expectations. I knew from watching videos, that it was small, but it still shocked me at how small when i actually received the product. it is incredibly efficient. i was a little dissapointed at first when i found that the trench could only hold about .1, but then i realized that i could use that .1 for a very very long time. im still on the same trench ive been on for 2 nights already. there is a little bit of a learning curve, but nothing to that of a vaporgenie. i can get good thick vapor after like 7-8 seconds with the MFLB. The price was a little steep, although you can find for around $100 instead of $120 on ebay or amazon. Even though the price was a bit much, it was well worth it. After using this piece, i would certainly pay twice as much for it. only thing that i do not like about it personally is the glass stem it comes with. im afraid im going to break it just throwing it in my pocket. it isn't necessary to use it, but i like the stem. i can see what is going on with it. but that is an easy fix. MFLB also sells wood stems on their website. a good investment imo. Definite win over the Arizer Solo if you ask me. its much smaller, like the size of a lighter, it doesnt need to be charged, ( yes you have to charge batteries, but they last a good amount of time. and you can take multiple with you, where as the arizer solo is the size of a can, and you have to charge the actual device itself.) and the price difference is huge. i mean $100, compared to $250? if you really wanted to spend $250, id suggest getting this, plus $60 for the power adapter for a house outlet, some extra batteries, and you still have 80 dollars left over...
for the whole learning curve issue. look, this is how i see it. different people like to do things their own way. when i use the MFLB. i like to take small, but very thick hits. where i get good vapor clouds each time, but i know some people who take very long hits and dont get very thick vapor at all. its all by opinion and how you use your device. the arizer solo doesnt allow that personal feel to it. its just. push the button and see what happens. where as this you can get a hold of it fairly easy and make it work how you want it to work.

It took me some getting used to to get proper vapour, but im absolutely loving this device now. stylish, efficient and i use less ganja than I did when I still smoked.
Magic-Flight Launch Box reviewBy Visitor from South Americ on 10-12-2012
As said above, this is not one of those devices you can master properly at once, it requires a bit of practice.... But, as soon as you try some techniques and realize how to get things done, wow the box is a winner!
My preferred method at the moment is hitting the box native (no stem), wait like 4 seconds heat up, kiss the box repeatedly increasing the rate, release the battery and drag the remaining vapour, hold it. Do it like 3 times and wait (usually more than enough) the buzz will come!! The price to me is well nice as the device creators need some recognition for their awesome invention. To me, MFLB is pure love!
Magic-Flight Launch Box reviewBy imdcadguy on 19-06-2013
I waited a really long time to get a vaporizer, I shouldn't have given that I have cancer and need the herb for chemo side effects. But the high cost and the lack of knowledge kinda scared me away from them.
I am really sad I waited for so long. I love my magic little box. And the $110.00 is so worth it.
This is a really easy to use, well made, quality vape that gets a great hit almost every time right out of the box with out fail.
It took about 3-4 "bowls" before I really mastered the hit. The quality of high and low amount of herb used is a benefit for sure. I am really enjoying this unit and will sing its praises from the rafters to all my friends about this little box of mine.
I was very impressed by the storage tin it come in, the quality of parts and the instruction manual. The 2 batteries is are a great bonus and handy feature. Even the cleaning brush is a good quality.
The instructions were easy to read and understand. It seemed to tell more of a story then just the plain old "how to use" manual.
It really looks and feels as though it was hand-crafted by little angels somewhere in the backwoods. The inscription on the bottom of the box is really cool too.
I think I got the latest and greatest model that has the new "stay closed" lid as opposed to the rubber-band I was expecting to keep the lid closed. You can pack it and go without concern.
Overall rating: 5 stars
It is a very easy to use vaporizer that can be used one handed and is very discreet.
There is also a LIFETIME WARRANTY.
I WOULD buy another immediately if lost or stolen.

Used mine in 2 different bar/concert halls. First used in bathroom.When I got more comfortable and was sitting where no one could watch me I hit away and no one noticed great way to medicate in public. I hold the MFLB in hand covering it up so no ones the wiser. Love it. cloying
