Flowermate V5.0s PRO vs Crafty
Today, two highly portable and durable vaporizers are available on the market. Although they offer similar features, each stands out in terms of products in their price range. The Flowermate series, most especially the Flowermate V5.0 Pro, and Crafty vaporizer devices are currently some of the best mini-devices on the market today.
With many individuals who use vapes needing a durable, portable vape, with a reliable battery life and high vapor quality life these two products are especially important. More seasoned users may have a particular liking for certain specific features such as a glass stem or digital display. Perhaps you prefer conduction vapes to convection vapes. No matter what you’re looking for, there is a vape for you.
Despite being similar products,each of these vaporizers address different needs. Whether you are a casual smoker, or one who is more experienced, a device’s features need to carefully analyzed before making a final decision.
Let us help you figure out which vaporizer is right for you.
Flowermate V5.0 Pro
The Flowermate V5.0s Pro, a Flowermate vaporizer, is an upgrade from its 4.0 series which was favorably reviewed by critics worldwide. Made by Flowermate, this $140 device is 2.5” x .75” x 4” and weighs under two pounds. This device offers impressive heat settings, allowing the user to control temperature. Its small size, along with its disappearing mouth-pieces that are rotated alongside the device, make it an easy choice for those who value discretion, or the basic need to put it in your pocket and go.
Its frame is made of an anodized aluminum shell, a pyrex stem, and a ceramic heating chamber which holds 0.5 grams worth of dry herbs. It comes included with wax or concentrate extract pods also. Its ceramic chambers, which are powered by a full convection oven, heats up within twenty seconds after simply pressing a button on its side for use.
Shaped much like a wallet, it would seem to be as such in most user’s pockets.
This portability would make the Flowermate 5.0 Pro a good product for the casual smoker, however it should be noted that this device works best if used 3-4 times a week. With its easy to maintain and clean structure via pods that are swapped out, it is designed more for intermittent users.
With other vaporizers, often the temperature settings are only in pre-settings, yet with this device you can control the temperature up to the single degree. This is a level of customization not seen with other vaporizers. By pressing buttons controlling the temperature range on the side of a device, users can possess full control of this feature.
It comes with two batteries, which are made out of high-quality Lithium, and give you a standard battery time of 5 to 6 hours of continuous use. Stretched out for the casual smoker, this is perhaps five to six sessions. This along with its standard micro-USB power cord makes it easy to charge.
The Crafty Vaporizer, released a couple years ago by Storz & Bickel, looks very similar to a mini-space heater. Its small-size, along with light-weight and black frame, gives it the appearance of a tactical vaporizer.
It weighs only 1 pound and is 4.5 inches tall, making it a very compact and discrete portable vaporizer capable of fitting in most user’s pockets. Its case is made of a durable plastic, promoting the device’s long-life in case of dropping, or any other accidents. Its mouthpiece, which swivels in and out of the device, is made of the same material and delivers a clean-taste.
Utilizing its full convection ovens, a long-lasting flavorful taste can be achieved in under seven seconds simply by pressing a button on its side once. This flavor is helped by the Crafty’s self-cooling unit, which helps the unit cool down after use, something which is rare in vaporizer devices on the market today. Its oven holds 0.3 grams worth of dry-herb material, and comes equipped with extract and concentrate attachments. This achieves a high quality vapor production.
Its batteries have a voltage of 110v, making it a very powerful device. With its market-standard micro-USB charging cable users are given the convenience of being able to charge the device virtually anywhere they go. These batteries can charge within a half hour, making its continued and repeated use easy and enjoyable. The Crafty truly is an everyday device.
Users who buy this device can look forward to aligning it with their smartphones through use of their smartphone apps, controlling everything from temperature range, to battery use.
Although it is $100 more than the Flowermate v5 Pro, the Crafty vaporizer device comes with a 2 year warranty in case of hardware failure, and a dry-herb grinder (which is especially helpful in acquiring the best tasting herbs). With everything included in the Crafty’s kit, it would be possible for even the most inexperienced smoker to spend a little more money to gain everything they need.
Although the Flowermate v5.0s Pro is cheaper, and offers a variety of features, ultimately the Crafty vaporizer stands out as a superior product. Although it is priced significantly higher than the latter, its reliable track-record of user reviews along with its potential to help any new-comers find their perfect product makes this our favourite of the two models.
For those searching for a vaporizer for everyday use, the Crafty is a reliable, portable, and durable choice.
