Measuring in at 2.5 x 1.25 x 0.9 inches, it’s small, portable, and fits in the palm of your hand. It’s the Magic Flight Launch Box vaporizer, and it’s one machine that is not to be underestimated.
For an average price of about $100-120, the Magic-Flight is not only affordable but is one of those exceptions to the old adage “you get what you pay for”. It’s no joke, this little, low cost, made in the USA vape made our top 10 best vaporizers list.
It may not be the most attractive or “coolest” vape with lots of digital features, but the Magic-Flight Launch Box delivers in the vapor and functionality departments! An added bonus is it’s made in the USA.

Ease of Use
Quick is an understatement! The unit is powered by a rechargeable battery, which is placed through a port on one side of the box. The power is supplied immediately, and you are vaping in about 5 seconds. How’s that for quick?
The herb trench holds a decent amount of herbs, making it good for one person’s long vaping session or two’s shorter session.
This herb chamber is accessed by sliding the clear cover to the side. After the battery is pushed into its slot, we can start vaping.
Now, it’s important to note that you shouldn’t keep the battery in the slot for longer than a few seconds because the herbs will start to burn.
We’d say to pull the battery after 10-15 seconds of vaping. This quick heating may be one of its downfalls if you prefer to take your time and not feel hurried.
There is a little bit of a learning curve. Because of the fast heating, we had to be very mindful about how long to keep the battery pushed in, when the herbs started getting cooked as opposed to just being vaporized. Not good for people who’ve the tendency to space out!
You put the battery in the slot, the vaporizer powers up and delivers heat. But what if you forget to remove the battery after you’re done? You end up with some charred herb and possibly a damaged battery and vaporizer!
The design team at Magic-Flight thought to combat this issue with what they call a push-back ring that ends up wedged between the battery and the vaporizer slot.
If you place the battery inside of the slot, it won’t power up the unit because it’s not touching the contact.
When you push on the battery, however, it will make contact with the vaporizer and supply power. Stop pushing, and the vaporizer powers down.
Some of us have found this to be a cool safeguarding feature, but others have found this to be an annoyance. For some, pushing in the battery seems to be quite a chore, and we’ve even heard a few complaints about their thumbs hurting after holding the battery in for an extended amount of time.
We’ve no idea if these people’s hands are just dainty and fragile, but we’ve never had an issue with sore fingers, and, quite frankly, it’s not bothersome to push in the battery at all!
“Always choose on the basis of love” is sprawled along the side of the box. We can all use some much-needed love in this world, right? 😉

A Whip For Magic Flight Launch Box
One really cool thing about the Magic Flight Launch Box other than it’s simplicity is it’s attachment ability!
You can purchase several different accessories for the Launch Box such as a whip attachment, a water filtration whip, water pipe adapters, wooden stems, and even concentrate trays!
The whip attachment is exactly what is sounds like. A whip attachment about 1 foot long. This will allow you to collect more wand hash than with just the glass stem. Priced at $6.60.
The water filtration whip is a little more than a whip attachment. This will allow you to connect your MFLB to a bong or something like that. Talk about a tasty hit! you can pick one up for $28.50.
The water pipe adapter is exactly that. Basically the same as the water filtration whip without the whip. It sells for $18.99.
The wooden stem will replace your glass stem and cost about $14.00.
The concentrate tray will allow you to vape more than just dry herbs, this will enable you to vape concentrates and oils! Definitely worth the $17.00 price tag!
How to Fix Your MFLB Screen
The screen on a MFLB is not replaceable like most vaporizers. This is why each Magic Flight Launch Box has a lifetime functional warranty. As long as the device is not defaced or willfully damaged, they will replace it.
If the screen on your MFLB has been damaged in any way, you should contact the company and get a replacement.
How Long Does It Take MFLB Batteries to Charge?
There are several frequently asked questions about the Magic Flight Launch Box and one of those questions is how long is charge up time.
MFLB batteries typically take about 4 hours to fully charge from a completely dead battery.
If you are not the type to want to wait this long on your batteries to charge you can always purchase a few extra batteries. This way when yours goes dead, you have another to back it up while you wait on the other batteries to charge.
A 2 pack of MFLB batteries only cost about $9.95. And we feel that is a fair price to avoid charge up times.
How To Draw From a Magic Flight
There are several different techniques to taking draws from your Magic Flight Launch Box. As explained here there are two main draw techniques that work with any vaporizer.
First off, you always want to make sure that your materials are as finely ground as possible. Try to grind your herb, then let it dry out for a few minutes and then grind it up again. This helps to ensure that your vapor is evenly distributed through all of your herbs.
Now you just fill the chamber to the top of the MFLB trench with your herb, then insert the battery and press to connect circuit, and take your draw!
It’s that easy!
Different Draw Techniques
The Long Draw Technique – Take a slow, deep, draw. Just inhale until your lungs are full of vapor. Hold it in and then exhale!
The Sipping Method – Take repeated sip-like draws until your lungs are full of vapor, hold it in, and then exhale!
Always remember that the longer the draw, the thicker and denser the vapor will be. Shorter draws will result in less vapor, but will allow your herbs to last longer!
How To Hide Your Magic Flight
One of our main interests in portable vaporizers are their portability. Unfortunately the Magic Flight Launch Box is not as discrete as say the Pax vaporizer but it is very lightweight and there are ways to hide one!
If you get your MFLB vaporizer here you will get two free gifts such as an extra set of batteries and a magnetic 3-piece grinder. Although, we recommend that you check out the Secret Vape Case we found here!
This will allow you to discretely travel with your vaporizer of choice. The Secret Vape Book Case can be purchased in several different styles and colors so check them out and see which one you like best!
Use Your Magic Flight While Charging!
Have you ever wanted to vape with your Magic Flight Launch Box vaporizer while it was charging? Well now you can. Or you could just get an extra set of batteries for a little more than ten bucks and keep a spare set charged (like most people).
Although, you should definitely check out the 2.0 power adapter for the Magic Flight. It takes away the need for batteries altogether and let’s you control the temperature. This thing will pretty much solve all the negative things that people do have to say about the MFLB even though there isn’t too much to complain about.
You can use the power adapter at home or in the car, and it fit’s snugly into any generation Launch Box!
Check out the 2.0 Power Adapter here!
How To Grind For the Magic Flight
First off, when using any vaporizer you are going to need a grinder. You can get a Magic Flight grinder that is made to match the MFLB and when taken apart fit directly on top of your chamber to dump the herbs. This is a cool accessory to have with your Launch Box although, it isn’t necessary. Because any good grinder will work.
I have also found that if you dry your materials out before vaping, that will make it even better.
So basically all you do is grind your material, dump it out and let it dry out completely for about 5-10 minutes. Then reinsert it back into the grinder and grind it up again. Repeat steps if necessary.
The finer your material is ground up and the dryer it is will make for a better vaping experience!
How To Clean Your MFLB Screen
One of the biggest downfalls of the Magic Flight Launch Box is the fact of the screen not being replaceable. However, you are able to clean it fairly easy when it gets dirty.
What You Will Need
- The MFLB unit
- 1 Wet Paper Towel & Dry Paper Towel
- 3 Q-Tips
- Rubbing Alcohol
- MFLB Cleaning Brush
- MFLB Battery
The MFLB Screen Cleaning Process
First, you should organize all of your cleaning materials so they are easily accessible.
Then heat up the MFLB for about 10 seconds. This will help loosen the herbs that are built up on the screen. Now take your MFLB cleaning brush and dab it into the rubbing alcohol (but don’t use too much, as a little goes a long way) and gently brush your screen. Do this a few times for best results. You can use the q-tips to help scrap off some of the build up but remember to be careful so you do not damage the screen!
How to Clean the MFLB Draw Tube
Now this is mainly where to q-tips come in and you have to be really careful doing this or you will break your draw tube.
Try to peel of some of the cotton from the q-tip so that it isn’t so big. This will allow it to fit easily inside the draw tube. Now simply dip it into rubbing alcohol and run it through the draw tube!
Now it should be as good as new!
