The Crafty Vaporizer from Storz & Bickel is the little brother of the Mighty Vaporizer and packs a similar punch. More compact but featuring the same high-quality design and construction, it’s the choice for those who want top-notch vape wherever they go. This is one fine little vape. Firstly, it’s solid. You could hammer nails in with this thing. The German construction clichés are all true about this miniature marvel: it’s incredibly well made and designed, it oozes efficient vaping capabilities. Weighing in at 135g it’s not the lightest vape out there but you’re getting a sturdy plastic shell and a hefty pair of Li-Ion batteries for that, keeping this thing vaping for over 50 minutes of continuous use. They’ve improved the batteries recently, making the latest versions of the Crafty serious competitors for the title of the best portable vape.
The Crafty comes equipped with a liquid pad that enables the use of both liquids and concentrates which produces an equal level of proficiency for both. The vape has a very simple and easy design that works by pressing a single button which then kicks into gear the Lithium-Ion battery which powers the machine into life. Storz and Bickel truly have produced a machine of magnificent quality that is sure to surpass your expectations.
Simplicity reigns with the Crafty, you just turn it on, use either the app or the default settings (which were easily good enough for most situations) to set the temperature, twist the mouthpiece round and pull. It’s got a very cool, clean draw to it that has basically no resistance. It’s a real pleasure to vape this thing. There aren’t any little particles that come with the vapor, it’s filtered beautifully by the removable filters.
The chamber itself can contain 1.4cm cubed of whatever you please, making it suitable for a lot of different vaping tasks. The really cool thing is that you can load up the little capsules that come with your Crafty and just pop them in when the old one is exhausted. This is seriously easy vaping.
The aforementioned app is intuitive and simple to use, and no matter how fuzzy you’re feeling, you’ll be able to get the right settings out of the Crafty. You can adjust the LED brightness, turn on or off the vibration alerts, check the battery and boost settings. You don’t need the app to use it, thankfully, but you’ll be stuck with either the manufacturer defaults or whatever temperatures you’ve programmed in. Best to take your phone and check out the app!
Its temperature range covers everything we tried in it, the range is between 104 degrees Fahrenheit and 410 degrees Fahrenheit, there’s no need to worry about sensitivity here. The LED display on the front gives you the temperature of the device itself and the desired temp, so you can see how close you are to optimum temperature. It heats up in less than 2 minutes, which is quite slow compared to some vapes these days but still OK.
It will shut itself off after 1 minute without any input, so you’ve got to keep on top of it if you want to have a frustration-free session, but it’s not really a problem in our experience. It vibrates when it gets to the right temperature and when it’s going to shut itself off, extremely useful indeed.
Charging via USB and the power adaptor, it gets fully juiced in 120 minutes and lasts for over 50 on the latest versions. We found this vape lasted between 4 and 5 sessions on one charge, which is an improvement on the older versions of the Crafty, which wouldn’t last so long. We’re a bit spoilt though, it isn’t an issue to charge it via USB.

At the base of your Crafty Vaporizer, you will find a handy little multi-tool that can be used to pack your oven or stir your dry herbs. The multi-tool can be stored in your device at all times, which makes it a great accessory for on the go vape sessions.
When using the tool as a chamber tool it is used to tamp down your material in the heating chamber, when using a finer grind. Make sure to never pack your herb chamber too tightly, as this will prevent the hot air from efficiently flowing through all the ground material evenly and reduce the quality of your vapor.
If you are using the tool as a stirring tool the multi-tool also helps you stir your herbs during a session, allowing you to get a more even extraction.
The Crafty and Mighty are two very high-quality dry herb vaporizers from Storz & Bickel. They are pretty similar in quality but with a few key differences. The Mighty is bigger than the Crafty, by around 1 inch larger in both height and width. This larger size allows the Mighty to accommodate a 2nd battery and last 90 minutes of continuous use compared the Crafty's one battery and 45-60 minutes. However, the additional size of the Mighty also means that the Mighty costs more than the Crafty.
The Crafty has more customizable options than the Mighty. The Crafty can use a free app that can adjust the temperature settings on the device to your liking while the Mighty controls are integrated into the vaporizer with analog temperature controls. Both offer the same great vapor in terms of production and quality.
The choice comes down to if you want portability or battery life. The Crafty can be taken anywhere while the Mighty is less portable but can vape without interruption.
The Crafty is almost indestructible, but we all know (too well) that sometimes bad luck hits us but luckily we at Herbalize Store have all the spare parts you may or may not need.
We have been lucky enough to try the Crafty ourselves. Personally, we are great Storz & Bickel fans as there are only a hand full of vapes, who´s vapor quality can be compared to that of Storz & Bickel products. The Crafty is a great device to take on the go, as it is a lot smaller than the Mighty and can be stored away a lot easier in your pocket or handbag. Additionally, you can stand the Crafty upright, which is not possible with the Mighty and one of our personal pain points. The vapor quality of the Crafty is exceptionally good, and for its size category, this unit probably produces the best vapor on the market.
One of the main pain points we have with the Crafty is battery life. It really does not last too long, especially if you are like us and like activating the boost function at the end of your session, to get the last bit of goodness out of your herbs. If you are just out for the day and want to take your Crafty, the battery will definitely last you the day. However, if you are planning to go camping or to a festival and taking your Crafty, we definitely recommend taking an external power bank to charge your unit with the USB charger. This is where the pass-through-technology is very handy, as you can vape while your Crafty is charging. It just has to have at least 20% of battery life. Cleaning the Crafty is a little more complicated as some other small devices, however, once you have cleaned it a few times, you quickly get the hang of it. Your Crafty also comes with a bunch of accessories in the box and they are also easy to come by, so maintaining your vape and keeping it in perfect condition is easy enough.
Overall the Crafty vaporizer has an outstanding vapor quality that other vapes the same size can hardly stand up too. The battery life could be improved and we always recommend having your device fully charged before you leave the house with it. If you are looking for a small powerhouse, that creates exceptional vapor, the Crafty is the device for you!
German manufacturer Storz & Bickel are proud to present a small, compact vaporizer that creates the same vapor quality as their larger devices. Truly portable, discreet, extremely well made and offering high-quality vapor wherever you go, the manufacturer Storz and Bickel state that: "Crafty is your new best friend"
One of the best vapes out there, its combination of high-quality vapor, ease of use and long battery life make it a very popular choice for the serious vapor enthusiasts. It pops in your pocket really easily, making it a powerful and discreet vape you’ll really enjoy the use of. It isn’t cheap, but you get what you pay for.
