The Crafty has been upgraded with exciting new features. Rather than creating a brand new unit with an entirely different design, Storz & Bickel have listened to customer feedback and made some very clever changes to the classic Crafty. The Crafty + boasts an improved battery life, ergonomic design, and an extra pre-set temperature setting.
The Crafty+ now heats to 180°C in less than 60 seconds, making it much twice as fast to heat than the previous model. The heating element has been optimized to reach the ideal temperature in 60 seconds.
Although the classic Crafty had a similar one-button design with two preset temperatures, the Crafty+ comes with three options for a more personalized vaping experience. With just three clicks of the button, you can enjoy the new Super Boost feature which brings the temperature up to 210°C. This is a great feature, as it allows you to boost the temperature at the end of your vape session to get the last bit of goodness out of your dry herb material.
The shell of the Crafty + has been given something of a facelift with a trendy fin effect in a more durable material. It’s not just the exterior that’s been upgraded though. Storz & Bickel have also improved the circuit board on the Crafty+ for what they say will be the highest performing Crafty yet. The unit itself fits comfortably into your hand and the size of the vaporizer is almost identical with the original Crafty.
One of the great features of the new Crafty + Vaporizer is its compatibility with the previous model. All accessories and parts are interchangeable with the original model. If you have upgraded your old Crafty for the new and improved Crafty Plus, all your spare parts will also fit into your new vape. This is great, as it saves money and reduces waste at the same time. A great shout from Storz & Bickel, we think!
The Crafty Vaporizer came with two years stock warranty as standard, but with the Crafty + Storz & Bickel have extended this by a third year. However, this extension only applies to customers who register their device with Storz & Bickel.
|Average battery life||50 + Minutes (about 6 bowls per charge)|
|Recharge time||70 Minutes|
The update to the flawed, but very popular, Crafty has been long-awaited by the vaping community. Storz & Bickel have kept their cards close to their chest on this one, leaving clues and hints on their social media accounts, but giving very little away about what exactly the update would include. And now that it’s here, what do we think?
Overall, the improvements seem to be well-thought-out. Storz & Bickel have clearly listened to their customers and taken on board their issues with the original Crafty. What they’ve created isn’t the brand new model that many hoped for, but is certainly a vast improvement on the original device.
Storz & Bickel, who are also the brand behind the vastly popular Mighty Vaporizer , sure know how to generate excitement and seem to have hit the mark by keeping the unit similar enough to the original so that it seems cohesive while still making some very tactical improvements to the performance and experience it delivers.
Was the upgrade everything we expected? Pretty much. Will it prove to be just as popular as the Crafty? Only time can tell. But one thing is for sure - customers won’t wait long before sharing their thoughts on the Crafty+. Some say it is even better than the Mighty vape.
