Is the new Stealth MV1 a new vape or just a new colour option?
The Ghost Vape hype
After a long awaited release of the Ghost MV1 vaporizer , it was fast shot down with many negative comments and reviews. But it seemed more like a hit and miss as far as having a good or bad experience. Luckily with my first MV1 it worked perfectly. They then re adjusted the firmware and did some little changes to the unit. Most noticeably the new plastic mouthpiece! To me I am still scratching my head why would such a high end vape switch from glass to plastic. They say the change was for added protection against dropping the unit or for added durability when forgetting the mouthpiece extended.
My opinion on the new Stealth
This time I think the company did not just throw us a new colour. They actually took there time and did some minor changes that noticeably added to its performance ! First of all the new stealth colour is amazingly beautiful with its all black finish right down to the heatsink. Not only did the colour change on the heat sink , they have also reengineered it giving it more power .So it now extracts more efficiently whether its concentrates or dry flower. Also they have added a new updated firmware to the unit giving it that little added battery life and better user experience. No more long draws with no results with this new unit!
Let’s load a crucible
Ok so first thing first , loading the crucible has not changed. So make sure you do not over pack and keep the cannabis nice and fluffy in there. Another thing to make sure is that no flower is left on the edges of the crucible as this will affect its performance. Yes loading crucibles has not changed and it can be a pain , but once you get a technique the job becomes effortless. The 5 crucible dispenser is a great way to also load a bunch and make the process easier when ready to vape. So make sure to check that accessory cause trust me your going to want one!
Ok let’s get back to this session so I can discuss what I’m thinking as I am using the MV!.
Time to get vaping
First we will need to put the loaded crucible in the unit. When you push the loading door button that is where you notice the new door latch. So much easier to push in and the door opens slightly. Insert the crucible then as you close the door it’s way easier to get it to click and lock. Major improvement, way less force needed to click it back closed . Let’s start this session at the second pre set temp of 365F . Yup I remember why I love this unit so much! Even at low temps you get crazy flavours and actual vapour.
Oh by the way I loaded some purple kush from my own home grow. Getting all the flavours and very tasty, it’s almost flirting with a minty after tone on this one.
Ok enough about the taste,time to bump it up to the third pre set 392F. Oh man this is where you start getting the lung busting rips, yet still got lots of flavour. You definitely notice the new heat sink performance as it delivers thicker and smoother vapour. Ghost you guys hit this upgrade out of the ballpark! I know it’s not all the heat sink as the new firmware also has a major part in its performance and better battery life. Another hit at that 392F temp and I’m satisfied and starting to feel its effects. The MV1 extracts very effectively getting you medicated real fast. No need for 5 minute sesh with this vaporizer.
I believe that Ghost is on the right path to making the MV1 the best portable vape on the market. Now if they transition these upgrades to the whole lineup they surely will get less complaints and way more sales! If you used an earlier model I suggest getting your hands on a Stealth to try out. You will change your opinion of it on the first rip,yup it’s that noticeable!
Then there is the app that practically no one uses, wondering if that will ever be upgraded?
