Comparison: Arizer ArGo vs Crafty vs Mighty

Arizer is one of the best quality vaping brands out there. From the Arizer air to the air 2 and solo, arizer products are both popular and reliable. Similarly, Storz & Bickel make some of the best vapes out there. If you’re thinking about dropping some serious money on a vaporizer, they are both fantastic choices. In the sub-$400 range for a portable vaporizer there are three stand-out products: the ArGo, the Storz & Bickel Crafty and the Storz & Bickel Mighty. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks but all of them are high quality vaporizers which offer a superior vaping experience to most other models. If you’re in the market for a dry herb vaporizer you’re unlikely to be disappointed by any of these three devices.

Storz & Bickel have been making vapes for a long time and have really hit on a winning formula with the Mighty, which has remained almost unchanged apart from a battery upgrade for years. The crafty is a smaller, more modern version, with smartphone control and extra features, and the Arizer ArGo is one of the smallest devices that Arizer offer but with a huge amount of capability.

Size and Discretion

Arizer ArGo: Not the most discreet of vaporizers, it is still pretty small and could be mistaken for a cigarette packet or box of something in your pocket. 9.3cm by 5.2cm by 2.4cm.

Mighty: On the outer edge of what can be considered portable, the Mighty is aptly named and not very discreet at all. 14 by 11cm by 3cm.

Crafty: Relatively discreet, the Crafty is easily concealed but definitely looks like a vaporizer. 11cm by 5.7cm by 3.3cm

Winner: Arizer ArGo


The Arizer ArGo offers high quality vape, small size, tough construction and simple controls. Hard to beat for the price. The Mighty offers by far the best vape at any temperature but is big, bulky and hardly discreet. The Crafty is less discreet than the Arizer ArGo but more so than the Mighty, while offering a superior vape to the ArGo.

The differences at this stage are down to preference. The extra $100 or so that gets you the Mighty will cost you in size but gain a much superior vape quality and versatility, whereas for roughly the same price as each other, the ArGo and the Crafty trade off against each other on function and discretion.

In terms of capability, the Mighty and Crafty are clear winners: extracts and waxes are a part of many people’s vaping experience. The Arizer ArGo is built just for herbs, and does it well, but some will miss the versatility of the Crafty or Mighty. No matter who you are or what vaping experience you hope to enjoy, you can find what you’re looking for in one of these three vaporizers.
