Magic Flight Muad Dib Review
The original Magic Flight Launch Box I reviewed two years ago, was a brilliantly designed, simple, little vaporizer that was able to capture the heart of many cannabis enthusiasts.
This “second generation” Magic Flight we have here, courtesy of vaposhop.com (the exclusive partner/retailer from Magic-Flight in Europe), is the Muad Dib (pronounced “maw-deeb”): a concentrate only, one hit portable vaporizer.
A tiny, pin head sized dab is all you need for a long single hit. The Muad Dib uses the same simple patented technology as the Launch Box, but with a reimagined screen design that reaches 900°F (482°C) in just three seconds. The Concentrate Box uses the same batteries as the Launch Box, but drastically improves on battery life, allowing you to take 50+ dabs on a single charge. The new lid features a brushed brass face, four snick locks and an optical grade glass lens, design inspired by the original Dune movie art some of you might remember (if not, look it up!).
Due to the high heat produced by this Box, a 1.5 ft draw whip is included in place of a draw stem to help cool the vapor stream.
Inside the box:
- Muad-Dib Concentrate Box
- Two Glyph Batteries and protective caps
- 1.5 ft Draw Whip
- Battery Charger
- Instruction Guide
- Magic-Flight Felt Lined Tin
Preparing the vaporizer for first time use
Both batteries can be charged with the included battery charger and take approximately 4 hours to fully charge, which I can recommend doing at night while you’re sleeping.
You only need a very small amount of concentrate, about the size of the stainless steel ball bearing that holds the locked lid in place. The concentrate is placed in the center of the screen, which requires some carefulness. The screen is extremely fragile, so refrain from pressing or packing your concentrate.
A tiny, pin head sized dab is all you need
Close the lid and insert the draw whip into the draw hole, after which you can insert a fully charged AA battery nipple end first in the battery hole.
Using the Muad Dib
Before you make contact with the battery, start inhaling and after a second or two engage the battery. Drawing at a normal pace, you’ll see vapor appearing. Too much vapor? Draw faster. Don’t see any vapor? Try drawing slower.
It is important to note this is a one hit vaporizer, which means that when you begin drawing, you don’t stop and don’t disengage the battery until you’ve completed your hit.
After 2-3 seconds after you engage the battery, you’ll see vapor and you are to continue drawing until no more visible vapor is produced. All vapor should be captured in one breath, if not, you probably loaded too much.
Towards the end of your draw, you might see the concentrate lighting up after which it fades away. That’s when you can stop inhaling and won’t see any vapor produced.
Using too much concentrate, combined with fast drawing can result in the concentrate being inhaled through the whip. A not so very enjoyable experience that’ll only happen to inexperienced users about once, which burns your mouth and will make you remember to use less product next time. It’s one of the few downsides of the Muad Dib I found out by accident while showing it to a friend.
Cleaning the Muad Dib
Cleaning the Muad Dib is pretty easy. After each completed draw, you should perform a so-called burn off by engaging the battery with the lid open, until no more visible vapor is produced for about 10-30 seconds. After the burn off is completed, you can use the included brush to clean out leftover residu and pack up, or ready another hit!
- Pleasant high
- Durability (lifetime warranty)
- Excellent battery
- Difficult to hide and use in public
- Have to be careful not to use too much concentrate
- Concentrate only
Compared to the original Magic Flight Launch Box, I do see myself using the Maud Dib for a long time after this review is finished. The concentrate process requires less battery power and battery life has thus improved coming from the original which was one of the downsides.
The Muad Dib makes people turn their heads, which might not make it the ideal vaporizer to use in public. But then you do get a unique vaporizer that’s really fun to use and enables you to very efficiently consume concentrates, oils or hash in one quick hit.
Europeans can order their Muad Dib for € 125,00 at vaposhop.com. North Americans can buy the Muad Dib at the Magic Flight store for $169.
