You have to love the way Magic-Flight approached making a vaporizer. Vapes are generally very unnatural and inorganic products, but with the Launch Box, you have a very unique, handmade device, built from natural materials vaporizer that can perform.
The Launch Box is a conduction vaporizer that achieves it's goal by heating a large screen that is the bed for your dried herbs. The heated contact extracts the compounds extremely efficiently. It's not as simple as it looks!
Control & Operation:
Using the Magic-Flight Launch Box is pretty easy. Supplied are two batteries that are used one at a time. Insert the positive terminal of the battery into the open cavity on the side of the Box. Applying some pressure will initiate the heating process. With the finely ground herb, or whatever other dry herbs you like to use, placed in the screen trough and the top cover closed, squeeze the battery into the Launch Box and wait for some vapor to be produced before beginning to slowly draw from the glass stem. As far as temperature control goes, well there isn't any. The user will have to dictate the length of heating cycles and find a sequence that works well for them. We found that a long press with a long, slow draw followed by short sips while pressing the battery yields the biggest clouds. As with all conduction vaporizers, the material will need a mid-session stir.
Magic-Flight includes 2 nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries at 2000mAh which will give the user 1 very good session each. Trying a second session will leave you frustrated. This is the shortfall of the Launch Box. Magic-Flight has developed a custom power adapter that works incredibly well, but you lose the portability factor. As an unregulated vape, it’s imperative that the batteries be full for each session. Keeping your NiMH batteries fully charged and properly stored can become cumbersome for a daily user. But if you're okay with the inherent battery care, the Launch Box will give you a very rare experience.
Feel & Design:
It's wooden. Feels great to hold and is extremely light and small. It has a unique flavor profile because of the natural wood and it's terrific. A nice step away from the metals, plastics and silicones found in almost every other vape. An inspirational message of love is engraved onto the back of each unit. The Launch Box is available in 3 wood finishes; Maple, Cherry, and Walnut.
A brush is included with the kit and that's all you really need to keep the Launch Box clean on a daily basis. Try to remove the AVB (already vaped bud) from the chamber as soon as the session is complete to avoid clogging the pores of the mesh in the trough. If the glass stem gets covered in resin, some hot water, and ISO alcohol rinse will shine it back up. The batteries need the most care here. They must be capped with the rubber piece supplied when not in use. When in use, put the cap on the back of the battery so yo don't lose it.
Lifetime. If it stops working they'll fix or replace the unit. Can't lose! But it must be purchased from an Authorized Dealer like The Herb Cafe.
This is a great entry price point vaporizer. It's straightforward operation, makes it a great choice for someone wanting to explore herbal vaporization for the first time. We like to call it the "Hippie Vape" and it's a compliment in the best way!
