Crafty+ vs. Mighty: The Storz and Bickel Portable Vaporizer Showdown

Crafty+ vs. Mighty: The Storz and Bickel Portable Vaporizer Showdown

If you’re someone who likes to savor every flavorful moment life has to offer, then Storz and Bickel made two portable vaporizers just for you. The Crafty+ and the Mighty portable vaporizers pack power and flavor behind every hit, offering you the smoothest vaping experience available on the market. This trusted brand makes it difficult to decide between the two high-quality portable vaporizers. But by the end of this review, you will be less confused about the perfect fit for you than Goldilocks ever was.

First, we tried the standard free vape pen you receive as a first-time customer at many dispensaries. But that vape pen was much too cold and weak to deliver smooth hits. We found ourselves coughing and in a fit. Next, we tried Storz and Bickel’s famous classic Volcano tabletop vaporizer. But using this vaporizer meant we were stuck in one place, enjoying the smoothest hits but unable to take them anyplace.

The Mighty

Then we tried the Mighty, the big brother in the portable vaporizer family made by Storz and Bickel, and it was just right. Standing at five and a half inches tall, three inches wide, and half a pound of weight, this device proves to be small and mighty (pun intended).

The Mighty provides 100-240 volts of power via dual 2668 mAh Lithium-Ion batteries. It uses convection and conduction heating to reach temperatures of 104 to 410 degrees Fahrenheit. It takes 90 to 120 seconds for the device to heat to just the right temperature to produce top quality vapor. It also provides 90 to 120 minutes of battery power per charge, and is made from high-quality materials, making it perfect to toss in your backpack for adventures.

The Mighty’s extreme durability is due to the fact that it is made entirely without glass. All Storz and Bickel devices are constructed with the medical-grade materials and backed by multiple safety certifications, providing you with quality you can rely upon.

The Mighty also includes:

  • Power Adapter
  • Liquid Pad
  • Spare Screens
  • Cleaning Brush
  • 4-Piece Aluminum CNC Grinder
  • Filling Aid
  • Spare Seal Rings
  • 1 Dosing Capsule
  • TightVac Storage Container
  • User Manual & Safety Instructions
  • Two-Year Warranty

The Crafty+

Finally we tried the Crafty+, another travel-friendly family member in the Storz and Bickel lineup — and it was also just right! The portable vaporizer offers size convenience and the same high-quality vapor as the Mighty.

It stands at just over four inches tall and two inches wide and weighs just a quarter of a pound. It has a 40-minute battery life in exchange for the more compact size, with the ability to conveniently recharge the device with a USB cable. The device also has smart controls that automatically shut it off after two-minutes of being idle, preserving the battery life in between sessions.

Although the Crafty+ can be controlled by a Bluetooth Smartphone app, it is no longer offered in the iOS App Store.  If you are an Android user, however, you can still access the app to customize the lowest on-board temperatures, adjust the shutoff timer, brightness and alerts. However, the Crafty+ will still work just fine without the smartphone app.

The Crafty+ is easy to use out of the box, with one-button controls. It is preset with three ideal temperatures of 356 degrees, 383 degrees and 410 degrees Fahrenheit. The device heats to temperature in 90 to 120 seconds and takes two hours to charge to full capacity. It offers stable temperature control via a patented hybrid heat exchanger. Same as the Mighty, it utilizes both convection and conduction heat to produce flavorful vapor of your favorite flower.

The Crafty+ also includes:

  • USB Charging Cable
  • 3 Base Seal Rings
  • 3 Normal Screens
  • 3 Coarse Screens
  • 2 Drip Pads
  • 1 Dosing Capsule
  • User Manual & Safety Instructions
  • 4-Piece Aluminum CNC Grinder
  • TightVac Storage Container
  • Two-Year Warranty

Crafty+ vs Mighty: Which is right for you?

In the end, we found that both the Mighty and the Crafty+ were just right for us, but in different ways. The size, taste and convenience of both of these portable vaporizers hit the spot. The Crafty+ is pocket-sized, more discreet to hit in the streets, and convenient to charge on the go. The Mighty is a powerhouse that heats to temperature faster and offers all-day battery power so that you aren’t tied down to sessions at home. Both devices offer Storz and Bickel’s world-renowned, high-quality construction, medical-grade materials, and first-class vapor experience.
