Ghost MV1 Vaporizer
Since its release in 2018, the Ghost MV1 by Ghost Vapes has been taking the vaping scene by storm as one of the most innovative new devices in the community. After being on the market for almost a year, the overwhelming success of the Ghost MV1 shows no signs of stopping - so what exactly is all the fuss about? Read on to find out why the Ghost MV1 is revolutionizing the vaping community, and everything we love about this unique convection device.
Key Features of the Ghost MV1 we love:
- On-demand convection heating
- Crucible loading pod system
- Strong battery life
- Compatible with dry herb and concentrates
- Swift 3-10 second heat up time
- Removable, replaceable and rechargeable battery pack
- Retractable mouthpiece
- Add-on Bluetooth app for advanced temperature control
One gripe customers had with the first edition of the Ghost MV1 was how scratches and fingerprints showed up easily on the vape’s shiny, chrome-finish exterior. The good people over at Ghost Vapes took this feedback to heart, and answered customers prayers with a new matte black finish.
While we love the shiny finish of the earlier Ghost MV1, this new matte black design is just as sleek and attractive looking as the earlier models - just without showing up every single scratch, dent or fingerprint.
Size & Dimensions
You can’t talk about the Ghost MV1 without talking about its formidable size, and this device is proof that good things don’t always come in small packages. As one of the biggest portable vapes on the market right now, the Ghost MV1 measures in at 5 inches tall, and weighs just under 12 oz - almost 3.5oz heavier than the Storz & Bickel Mighty.
While it’s hefty size and weight might be a detractor for a lot of vapers out there, we recommend simply finding some bigger pockets - the Ghost MV1’s large alloy body contains a whole host of amazing features that we’re more than happy to make room for.
The body of this device is an incredibly unique design, unlike any other vaporizer on the market right now. While it is bulkier than some other portable vapes, the Ghost MV1 still fits comfortably in the palm of your hand thanks to its ergonomic design. All parts feel custom-built for the ultimate vaping experience, from the air intakes and push-release chamber to the ceramic crucible loading pod (more on that later).
Unique Interior Design
The interior of the Ghost MV1 is really special - first off, inside your vaporizer you’ll notice a green silicone interior, which help to keep your vaporizer airtight.
Ghost Vapes have also gone through the effort of keeping the airpath totally isolated from the oven, which keeps your vapor path - and more importantly your vapor - as cool as possible. The all-glass airpath sits into a heat sink, which also keeps your mouthpiece totally separate from the hot oven for the coolest draw possible. The mouthpiece is also easily retractable for safe storage to minimize any breakages.
Innovative Crucible Chamber
In the crucible - AKA the oven chamber - you’ll be able to pack up to 0.12 grams of dry material. While this might not seem like a lot, don’t worry - with the on-demand convection heating you’ll actually extend the life of your herb considerably, resulting in less waste and more hits per load.
The ceramic crucible works in tandem with convection heating to ensure your material is evenly and efficiently heated, but there’s no harm in giving it a little stir around if you feel like it.
To supplement your kit, Ghost Vapes have changed the vaping game by creating the “crucible dispenser”, which lets you keep up to five fully loaded crucibles ready to go at the drop of a hat.
On-demand Convection Heating
While the Ghost MV1 may not be the most subtle or discreet vaporizer on the market, it produces some of the smoothest, tastiest vapor of any other portable convection device - which more than makes up for its hefty size.
With an ‘on-demand’ convection oven, the Ghost MV1 has revolutionized what convection heating can achieve. What is on-demand convection? On-demand convection heating basically means that your vaporizer will only heat up when you inhale or press a button to initiate heating. When you’re done, they’ll instantly start to cool down. This feature means that you won’t have to vape all of your material in one single session, freeing you up to take a hit whenever you want.

While some people do prefer session style vaporizers, this feature is particularly useful for anyone who likes taking quick, easy and leisurely rips throughout the day as opposed to someone who prefers a session-style vaporizer.
With an incredibly rapid heat up time of just 3-10 seconds, the on-demand convection heating on your Ghost MV1 will kick in to swiftly and efficiently cook your material to the optimum temperature with every draw.
This vape comes with 6 pre-set temperature levels between 284° - 428° F (140° - 220° C), 5 levels are for dry herb, and one level for concentrates. This might feel a little restricting to some, but the heat settings on your Ghost MV1 can be easily adjusted to your own tastes via the add-on Bluetooth app.
There is just enough airflow restriction to make sure you get nice, dense clouds without being difficult or uncomfortable to draw from.
Battery Life & Charging
The battery life of the Ghost MV1 is incredible for a portable device, and can easily last for an astounding 50 bowls on a full charge.
One small downside is that due to the battery’s amazing capacity, charging your Ghost MV1 can take a pretty long time - up to 8 hours with a regular micro USB charger. Thankfully, the good people over at Ghost Vapes have engineered a unique 12v, 1.5amp fast charger to help your device reach full power in just 2 hours - taking 75% less time than a standard micro USB charger.
Ghost MV1 battery pack is also rechargeable and replaceable, so you can have a spare battery pack on hand to extend your sessions even further. By supplementing your kit with the fast charger and a spare battery pack, you can keep your hits going indefinitely.
And there you have it - the Ghost MV1 is truly one of the most high-quality and innovative convection pieces on the market right now, and is worth every cent of the $250 price tag. And it’s not just us, the Ghost MV1 is topping best reviewed lists in vaping blogs and YouTube channels across the community, showing just how popular and much-loved this excellent device is.
