One of the hottest multi-functional portable vaporizers on the market today is the Ghost MV1 from Ghost Vapes. It boasts unique ergonomic design as well as advanced vape tech you’d find only on some of the best portable vaporizers in the industry. The folks at Ghost Vapes claim that the Ghost MV1 features ground-breaking engineering and technology, something that in our opinion allows it to perform well enough to put it in the top-tier category.  

True enough, the MV1 is a total standout in both form and function.  

If you’re looking for a reliable and durable multi-function portable vape, then look no further. The MV1 features the latest heat-sink technology including improved seals. An upgraded switch and its improved door mechanism allow for a better and a more convenient experience. It also has an upgradeable firmware giving you that ever-evolving vaping experience.  

However, they say that the wise are always doubtful. Like you, we’re also curious to know how good the Ghost Vape MV1 really is.  

So, here’s our honest and comprehensive Ghost MV1 review. 

Contents

First Impressions

From the outside, the Ghost Vapes MV1 looks like an expensive piece. The two-toned finish all the more emphasizes its premium look. The front side features a sleek and glossy texture while the back of the vaporizer preens a matte surface. By just looking at it, you know you’re sitting in front of a high-quality device capable of high-quality performance. Though, it’s still be too early to tell. We were a little skeptical about its awkward shape.

Unboxing

The Ghost MV1 comes in a cool looking box, kind of reminiscent of Razer computers with its bold, dark grey box lined with neon green trimmings on both sides. Ghost’s logo is slapped in the front with some information printed at the back of the box.  

GHOST MV1 unboxing

To open the box, you sort of have to peel it open, revealing three flaps enfolding the box itself. Right at the back of the moveable cover is a printed picture of some folks having fun with an embossed symbol (Ghost’s tilted logo) we felt represented a stick figure. This will expose the vaporizer, taking the MV1 out showed the user guide placed right beneath it. The box has two layers, after lifting the bed where the vaporizer lays, you’d be greeted by the second compartment where you’ll find the USB cable as well as other accessories to set you up right out of the box.  

Inclusions:

  • 1 x Ghost MV1 Vaporizer w/Battery 
  • 1 x Micro-USB Charge Cord 
  • 1 x Quick Start Guide 
  • 1 x Spare Crucible w/Lid 
  • 1 x Concentrate Pad 
  • 3 x Picks 
  • 3 x Isopropyl Alcohol Wipes 
  • 3 x Cotton Swabs 

Taking the Ghost MV1 in one hand reassured us that its form and figure were carefully thought of.  Here’s why.  

When you hold the MV1 and aim the position where you pull from the vaporizer, you’re tilting the Ghost MV1 with the mouthpiece on your lips facing you and the other end facing outwards. At this position, the MV1 gives off an undeniable balanced weight – almost as if you’re holding nothing in your hands. This is surprising given that the MV1 weighs around 12 oz. Although when standing upright, the Ghost MV1 felt like it was going to wobble ever so lightly forward and we were afraid placing it upright in a table will result in a nasty drop. 

We were also puzzled as to how it would perform given that the MV1 has multiple heat modes. We sure would appreciate an LED screen to keep us informed of the running temperature setting although it looks like it talks to you through its color-coded lights. It seems that we’d have to learn to speak the Ghost MV1’s language and we were afraid it might take us some getting used to. Nevertheless, we liked that it challenged us but we felt that making it more user friendly would make it more appealing to a wide variety of consumers especially beginners.

Here are some things we liked and we disliked on the MV1 on our initial assessment:  

Strong Points: 

  • Premium look and feel 
  • Has removable batteries 
  • Looks like it can take a beating 
  • Can vaporize herbs and concentrates 
  • Full convection heating 
  • Compatible with a downloadable app 

Weak Points: 

  • A little too bulky 
  • Might be best for intermediate users 
  • Can be a little noisy 
 

Portability

The MV1 isn’t exactly the best when we’re talking about portability. It stands about 5 inches tall and is around 2.25 inches wide. Yes, it looks smaller than the Storz & Bickel Mighty Vaporizer but weighs heavier. Not an ideal device to keep in your pockets but it will sure hold up when stashed inside your bag.  

GHOST MV1 portability

The Ghost MV1 also isn’t known for being discreet. Its size, design, and shape are far from inconspicuous. We’ve seen a lot of vaporizers at this size – even larger – but managed to make a good job of masking its nature one way or another.  

The MV1 from Ghost Vapes isn’t for the low-key and the stealthy. Although, it will make a good unit for those who are pronounced vapes especially for those who rely on a more natural means of medication for relief and repose from their medical conditions.  

Durability

While it’s no stealth vape, the MV1 makes up for its lack of furtiveness with its strong and durable build. It’s constructed using proprietary parts and the folks at Ghost Vapes wanted the MV1 to follow the most stringent medical standards capable of withstanding the most demanding sessions. Every part was made with a higher tolerance to most conditions where other vaporizers fail to shine.  

GHOST MV1 durability

Getting yourself an Ghost MV1 will prove to be a worthy investment since these vaporizers are simply built to last. Everything is robust and it gives the feeling of a hell and back reliability you wouldn’t get from cheaply made vaporizers.  

Versatility

The MV1 offers great versatility since it can be used for both botanicals and concentrates. You can easily switch between materials through the use of “crucibles.” Crucibles are like pods that allow you to store herbs or waxes and conveniently swap them over or replace them as you go.  

GHOST MV1 versatility

Using the crucibles proved to be daunting at first, especially because we were so used to using vaporizers of conventional design. However, the crucibles made sense as it made reloading easier and less messy than that of other portable vaporizers. If you hate splattering concentrates over your device or maybe spilling herbs as you transfer ground material from your grinder to your vaporizer, then you’ll surely appreciate using the crucibles. The crucibles even have a carrying case (sold separately), making the experience more convenient.  

We’ve heard some users complaining about how the lid of the crucibles do not hold fast on the actual container. But we had no problem whatsoever and the lids remained flush.  

Vapor Quality

The MV1 is capable of producing superb vapors. This is due to the ample supply of power as well as the top of the line components used in the Ghost MV1. We loved that the MV1 has zero draw resistance, vaping feels like breathing naturally. Although you’ll eventually feel your lungs filling up with vapor, you’ll never have any difficulty of pulling.  

The MV1 from Ghost Vapes features adjustable airflow allowing you to customize your draws however you want it. The MV1 requires no need to stir its contents. Thanks to its revolutionary diffuser, it evenly distributes heat towards the contents of the crucibles giving you an even burn. In general, we were able to get some milky and visible vapors from the MV1. 

Price to Performance Rating  

The Ghost MV1 price surely is worth every penny. It performs wonderfully without any decrease in performance after substantial use. It’s something you can bring at parties if you’re the kind of consumer who likes to pass their vaporizers over to their friends. If you’re a medicating patient, the Ghost MV1 makes for an ideal device since it uses medical grade components allowing it to yield clean and pure vapors every single time. What’s more is that the MV1 is built using high-quality components meaning that this device will last you longer than any other vaporizer in its price point.  

Another element we’d like to focus on is its ability to retain the flavors of your materials. The MV1 is designed for purity. The full convection ovens effectively and efficiently vaporize whatever materials are in the crucibles. The fan, although a little annoying, is somewhat tolerable especially when you’re vaping in places with ambient noise which seems to drown the fan noise easily.  

Overall, the MV1 boasts a good price to performance ratio making it a sound investment for any consumer.

JUUL rating

 

Verdict  

It’s not something we’d recommend for beginners. The Ghost MV1 from Ghost Vapes isn’t a vaporizer you’d just want to pick up and take without giving some thought to its operation. It definitely requires a learning curve. It may seem a little daunting at first, but as soon as you get to know the MV1, you’d soon realize that the time you took to understand it definitely paid off.

Switching from the Ghost MV1 to the conventional potable vape felt like driving a stick shift to an automatic transmission. Vaping with pens and average portable units felt like child’s play after we’ve used the MV1. 

It’s not the ideal travel vape, but those who require medical-grade devices and have the luxury of time may find that the Ghost MV1 is best suited for their needs. We won’t bring the MV1 with us during a stroll around town but we’d surely take it any time of the day should we be going to camping trips, beach capades, skiing trips or when traveling to destinations where we’ll have a rented accommodation where we know we can vape in peace.  

We gladly give the Ghost Vapes MV1 a go.

Tips and Tricks

The MV1 is powered by a beefy 2600mAh battery. While most vaporizers this size runs on a single 18650 battery, the MV1 uses two. That’s why it takes 8 long hours to charge the battery – that’s one whole day of charging. If you need faster charging times without sacrificing the integrity of the battery it’s best that you get their fast charger.  

On our testing phase, the MV1 was able to achieve a full charge in two hours.  

Furthermore, if you want to personalize your sessions, the MV1 features a retractable mouthpiece. Not only does the retractable action on the mouthpiece helps protect and keep the mouthpiece clean, it also helps you adjust draw resistance. As we’ve mentioned earlier, the MV has zero resistance when fully extended but if you want to experience a tighter draw, simply push the mouthpiece closer to the heatsink to increase draw resistance.  

Speaking of personalization, if you’re need further customization options one way to improve your experience is by downloading the app. The Ghost mobile app is available for both iOS and Android devices. The Ghost app gives you a tailored vaping experience giving you additional temperature settings for a more personalized sesh.
