With so many Portable Vaporizers
flooding the market that are priced in the higher end segment, many people have recently called in and inquired about more budget friendly options such as the PUFFiT or Launch Box
. In today’s blog we will take a closer look at these units and let you know which of these budget friendly option suits you better.
Comparison Review of Magic Flight Launch Box vs PUFFiT Vaporizer
The Magic Flight has a very simple mechanism that produces surprisingly good vapor. When testing the unit we found the consistency to be rather thin but the flavor was nice and natural. Once you figure out how long to hold the battery into the unit while taking long/strong to draws, this handheld vape will produce good vapor for a unit so small.
When testing this unit, we found the Puffit to produce decent vapor quality. Though you need to take long, steady draws with this vaporizer, but we found the quality of the vapour to be a tad harsh.
Winner: Magic Flight – Smoother Vapour
The Magic Flight has been a trusty unit for a few years now. The unit is made of high quality American birch wood and comes with 2 batteries and a drawing stem. What is also nice is that the MFLB comes with a nice aluminum tin to store your unit. The new version of the MFLB has a new “click and close” mechanism that makes opening and closing the unit easier and more reliable. Overall, it’s a well manufactured unit for such a great price.
This Portable Vaporizer
is designed to look like an inhaler, so it is made of plastic components. Although the unit has no loose parts and is pretty self-contained, we would have liked to see more metal components to make this unit sturdier and more robust.
Winner: Launch Box – Solid American wood, nice draw stem options (wood, glass, acrylic).
MFLB is one of the most portable units on the market. It’s small, easy and fast to load and it comes with a nice pouch and tin. Furthermore, it is one of the lightest units ever made. In short, the MFLB was made for portability and it doesn’t disappoint. Each battery of the MFLB allows you to vaporize 2-3 batches. As the unit comes with two batteries, you will have enough juice when you go about your day.
is also a very small and light unit. However, the shape of the unit is not as compact as the MFLB, making it a bit bulkier to carry around. The “curve shape” makes the unit feel a little unnatural when put in your pocket (sorry for all you skinny jean wearers). Also, it’s important to note that the PUFFiT’s battery will only allow you to vaporize one batch making the unit ultra-low on juice. As the battery is very close to the heating chamber, we are also worried about how long this internal battery will last before you need to pay to replace it. Obviously heat will destroy the battery life and that is the same reason, why so many of the good Portable Vaporizers try to keep the battery as far away from the heating chamber as possible. That being said this is a more reasonably priced vape, so sacrifices had to be made on some fronts.
Winner: Magic Flight – Tinier, more compact shape and longer battery life.
The Magic Flight Launch Box
might be one of the smallest units on the planet but it does lack certain aspects in terms of discreteness. The reason is the simple design. When attaching the drawing stem it actually sticks out of the unit and one has to push in the battery in order to operate the unit. Therefore, while operating the unit it will show. The unit does not look like any regular device and might arouse the curiosity of the people around. This is not favorable. A little practice is needed to figure out how to use the unit quickly and put away.
Finally a category this vape can be proud of! In terms of discreteness this unit is AWESOME. Even the temperature dial of the unit is hidden. The design looks exactly like an inhaler making this unit look more like a medical device than a vaporizer. Nobody would ever think it is actually a vaporizer … so kudos to this great design idea!
Winner: PUFFiT – Looks identical to an inhaler.
While the Puffit is an uber discreet vape, the Magic Flight takes the cake in this showdown. Although the PUFFiT is priced higher, it doesn’t give you as many advantages as the MFLB.
We think the Magic Flight is priced very fairly and has been a trusted unit for quite some time now. To win against it, the PUFFIT Vape would need to be made of higher quality materials and would need to produce better vapor to warrant the extra bucks.
