The Crafty & the Mighty Vaporizer Reviews

The Crafty & the Mighty Vaporizer Reviews

We figured for the new Crafty and Mighty vaporizers we would do a single review and compare/contrast them with each other since they are both very similar units. Both of them perform wonderfully, and the one you choose will mainly come down to portability (the Crafty is a little more portable than the Mighty).

The Crafty & the Mighty by Storz & Bickel (the makers of the Volcano and the Plenty) are the current kings of portable vaporizers, with the price to match a king’s ransom.

But when it comes to vaping, you get what you pay for. Although the price may be high, these vaporizers are totally worth it.

These units perform fantastically, and even provide a better vape quality than many desktop units. Let’s break these units down and see how they work.

If you’re looking for the best place to purchase either of these, Click Here for the Mighty or Click Here for the Crafty, which is where we found the best deal.

How The Crafty and the Mighty Vaporizers Work

The Crafty:

The Crafty is very easy to use as far as vaporizers go. To turn it on, you simply press the orange button (as seen above) for two seconds, than the lights will blink and then glow red while it heats up. It takes roughly 90 seconds to heat up to the first of the two heat settings, which is 356°F.

To change between the two preset temperature settings, you click the orange button twice when the unit is on. The other heat setting (called “boost mode”) is 383°F. However, you can change these settings in a really cool way.

To alter these two settings, you can use a smart phone app (for android and iPhone) to alter these settings anywhere from 104°F-410°F. This app lets you change the temp settings, adjust the LED light brightness, and change vibration/notification options.

The app is one of the coolest things about the Crafty, and it’s definitely the first of it’s kind to incorporate an app into the unit.

Loading the chamber is super easy as well, all you have to do is unlock the mouthpiece and load it up. No matter how you load it, grind it, or pack it, this thing will perform. The chamber holds roughly 0.2-0.3 grams, but it’s best not to over fill because it restricts airflow.

The Mighty:

The Mighty is just as easy to use as the Crafty, but it does not use the app (a missed opportunity in my opinion). However, it does have a fully adjustable temperature, ranging from 105°F-410°F. All you have to do is hit the power button and it will begin heating to the preset default temp, then you can adjust it to whatever temp you want using the arrows on the front.

You load it the same way as the Crafty, and it also holds from 0.2-0.3 grams.

The Mighty takes about as much time to heat up as the Crafty.

They’re both great units that are very user friendly. Plus, they both have pass-through charging, which is a big plus. So as far as operation goes, they are very similar with the Crafty having the added bonus of the phone app.

Battery Life and Portability

The Crafty has about half the battery life of the Mighty. The Crafty has about 45 minutes of vape time, and the Mighty has about 90 minutes.

Overall, the battery life is pretty average for both of these as far as most portables go.

As far as portability, the Crafty is easily pocketable, being about the size of an iPhone 5, but a bit thicker.

The Mighty is about the size of an iPhone 6+, and is about as thick as three phones. So with the Mighty you might need to bring it in a bag of some sort.

Vapor Quality

This is where these units really shine. The vapor quality you get out of both of these surpasses every portable on the market right now, and even passes some desktop units. I would compare these to the Plenty by Storz & Bickel (easily one of the best desktops on the market), but in a much more portable size. You really cannot beat these in terms of quality and can’t go wrong with either one.

Which Unit is Right for You?

It all comes down to portability and battery life. If you want a unit to carry around in your pocket, the best one to pick would obviously be the Crafty. It is so much smaller and easily pocketable.

If you want the quality of a desktop for mostly home use, but you don’t want to be tied to a power cord, then the Mighty is the vape for you. It has great battery life and a nice herb capacity for constant vaping.

In the end, you will be happy with either one.

Final Thoughts

With the Crafty coming in at $339 and the Mighty at $399, these units are on the higher end of the price scale. However, their cost is their only downside.

The vapor quality is amazing, the build quality is just as good, and the warranty that comes with these units is awesome. If you want portability with the punch of a desktop, one of these portables would be the best choice.

If you’ve used any products by Storz & Bickel in the past (either the Volcano or the Plenty), you know they are the best of the best, and the Crafty and Mighty are no exception.

  • Can anyone tell me what the smoothest, least harsh method of smoking is? Or which vaporizer, bong or to use ?(other then edibles). I have a chronic cough thanks to detoxing heavy doses of opioids used over the past few decades. I just got my prescription for cannabis from the same doctor last month. I hadn’t smoked for nearly 45 years, so proceeded to destroy my first 3 grams of high grade shatter trying to follow a seemingly easy stove top “heat, melt, dilute & smoke in your vape pen” youtube video. Not as easy as it looked. Anyway I wiped out my bank account buying more shatter, hash & dry bud. I thought the V2 series 3 was the same as the Source Orb V3 so I bought the latter. So does the Orb V3 Premium vaporizer kit vaporize the herb or turn it into ash? Thanks

    • I’m sorry for your opiate issues, I have some friends that haven’t been able to get off them for years and are still having trouble with them.

      If you’re having issues with smoking hurting your throat, I’d stay away from concentrates, as they can make even the most seasoned smokers cough their brains out. Stick to dry herb (indica sounds like the strain types you should look for, as it’s better with pain management). A vaporizer is a better choice than smoking for your throat. You might have better luck with vaporizing through water, as that can smooth things out too. It’s really worth getting a more expensive vape, as they tend to be smoother and more accurate with temperature. Taking small hits will be your friend too.

      If your going to be at home, a desktop is the best choice. They’re much more potent, and they can usually hook up to water pipes pretty easily.

      If you’re trying to save money, a vaporizer is the way to go, too. You can save your used bud and make edibles out of it without cooking it, you just eat the bud as is (after vaporizing, of course).

      Something like the Underdog (a “log vaporizer”) might be a good choice for you, as you can use as little as 0.01g and get medicated. It will obviously depend on tolerance, but as you haven’t smoked in 45 years, yours should be pretty low. If you want the most bang for your buck, a log vape is the most efficient way to go.

      If you’re looking to dial in your exact temp, you have a ton of options, a and I’d recommend checking out our desktop buyers guide for that. However, seeing as it seems like you want to same money in the short term and long term, a log vape is the best choice simply in terms of extreme efficiency.

      Hopefully this has helped you, and if there’s anything else we can do, please let us know.
