    Thinking of investing in one, but fairly expensive at $280. Last vaporizer I purchased worked well for only a few months (magic flight launch box).

    Don't have a Pax but I do have a Arizer Solo that I'm quite fond of.

    I never liked the MFLB, found it to be a great disappointment. Much preferred my Iolite

    my MFLB has been going smooth for 4 years now. I'm also curious how this person managed to make it not work. Part of its beauty is in its simplicity...there's not much to break. The only thing I can think of is that he didn't clean it, or the batteries wore out and he didn't replace them.

    Same here. Been working great for almost 2 years. When i bought it they sent extra batteries that were knockoffs. The knockoff batteries are shit but the genuine stuff works great.

    Aside from being hard to clean, having to keep a set of batteries on charge and clumsy to use my main gripe with the MFLB is the fact that you have to control the entire vaping process yourself. If you don't hold in the battery for long enough you don't get a good hit. If you hold it slightly to long your burning not vaping. If you hold it past the point of burning you can damage the screen. It is very portable though and some people really seem to love it.

    I like my Solo, and before that Iolite. You fill it and turn it on. Your vaping. Automatically regulates temperature to insure proper vaping with out combustion. The Iolite was a single temp unit and the Solo you can adjust but it will never burn. Just easier over all.

    Things like a vaporizer sound interesting, but like the "Volcano" device, I just can't see spending that much money on an infrequent vice. I remember buying over a couple of birthdays the pieces to make this huge water pipe, with a neat little filter full of glass tubes and an ice cube choke... Over $100 when you calculated all the fittings and angled bits. It's huge. A couple of feet tall, all glass. PITA to clean, I almost never used it, it delivered such a powerful hit you'd spend the next half hour coughing... a real PITA to store, you don't want to have some Amanda Bynes interior design accessory sitting around... No one's going to believe it's a vase...

    Ah. You can't use cheap batteries. They need to be spec'ed the same as the ones that came with it, if not direct replacements from MF. And, the charger matters too. A good one makes all the difference. Using their grinder makes a big difference too. The finer the better. And ya gotta clean it or it doesn't work as well.

    Hold in the battery for way too long and you'll burn up the screen. Easier to do when your already super baked or if you hand it over to someone and their a dumbass.

    You need the right batteries for sure. I can't remember the name of the good ones.. Powercell? something like that. Need to get the highest capacity batteries possible.. 1800ma/hrs rings a bell..

    you can't burn up the screen. you're supposed to hold in the battery for over 2 minutes while cleaning it. and the batteries need to be 2400's

    A volcano is good for larger social gatherings. There's another desktop vape like the volcano that's almost as good, but is much cheaper, if you need one for that, but I forgot its name. The pax and MFLB are more for individual use.
