Sneaky Pete says:

The Crafty+ is a portable handheld vaporizer with a mix of convection and conduction vapor. It’s made by Storz & Bickel, the same company that makes the industry-leading Volcano desktop vaporizer. Judging this on a pure evolution/feature basis is probably going to be a yawner but looking at it purely on what it offers shows the Crafty+ is an extremely well-made pocket-friendly vape. The box is smaller than its predecessor, and it comes with a loading capsule, oil pads, several replacement screens and gaskets, a USB charging cable, and a quick start manual.

VAPE DESIGN

High quality plastic construction

S&B's Crafty+ vape is made almost entirely from plastic. For some, that’ll be a negative aspect of the design, but if there's a single vape manufacturer I trust with plastic, it’s Storz & Bickel. The body feels very high quality and the cooling unit is made from PEEK, a material used in medical implants. They were definitely choosing their materials carefully. The body of the Crafty+ has been reworked to feel better in the hand. It’s more rounded at the heating chamber rather than squared off, so the piece feels more secure on the go. At the same time, it’s still pretty light for its size, so it doesn’t feel cumbersome in a jacket pocket.

At the bottom of the vaporizer, you’ll see the LED status light and the stirring and filling tool that stores away inside the vape and covers the micro-USB port. The whole device is controlled by a single button, and you can further tweak the settings through the optional app. The exterior dimensions are the same as the old design; it’s reasonably small at 4.3” tall, 2.2” wide and 1.3” deep. I'm pleased to say, every original Crafty accessory I’ve tested on the new Crafty+ has worked perfectly.

HOW TO USE THE VAPE

Two good sessions per bowl

After the initial app setup, you’ll be doing all the controls on the vape itself. To turn on the Crafty+ press the orange button. It’ll start heating up to your base temperature. A double-click activates the booster and you’ll see the light blink faster as the oven moves up to the higher temp. Triple-click goes up to “level 11” or 410F for finishing bowls. When the session timer is about to expire, the Crafty+ vibrates once, then again, then at closer intervals and with a weaker vibration until it turns off completely.

I’ve been using a medium grind and filling the chamber all the way up for two good sessions per bowl. I also use the dosing capsules, which are a convenient option to keep your vape cleaner. The heater light is a good way to guide how long and how hard to inhale. As you can see in the video review, bubble straws work really well on the new Crafty+ vape.

HOW TO USE THE APP

Optional but useful

module image

Like any good vaporizer, the app is a totally optional accessory. You can easily use the Crafty+ without the app, but I do advise installing it to tweak things to your liking at least for the first-time set-up. Once you connect the vape to your app, turn on Bluetooth permanently if you plan on using the app regularly. You can also turn vibration on and off, adjust the automatic shutoff time between 1 and 5 minutes, and adjust smartphone vibration and alarm settings as well.

When you go to the Crafty tab you’ll see the device info, total operation time, firmware version, and even a “Find My Crafty” function that makes the Crafty+ flash all colors of lights and vibrate. This is super useful if you forget where you place things. In the temperature tab you set the vape’s base level temperature – I set mine to 365F. Below that you can set your booster temperature, which I like to go up by 25F, so the oven is at 390F.

BATTERY LIFE AND CHARGING

Eight sessions per full charge

The batteries are much more efficient than even the 20% boosted batteries we’ve seen from S&B lately. From a full charge, I measured 4 complete bowls, getting 2 sessions per bowl and the second session running at full power max boost heat level. This kind of performance is very good for a true travel vape. Heat up time has also improved over the older model, though it still takes around a minute to reach full temperature. There’s also a strong vibration to let you know when it’s ready.

It’s too bad S&B didn’t upgrade to USB-C because it charges so much faster. If the vape is totally dead it takes a long time to recharge. At least you can use it while plugged in as long as the battery has a minimal charge.

When you plug it in, the Crafty+ lights change and blink blue while it’s taking juice. The blink slows down as the battery powers back up, and when full, the blue light stays solid.

VAPOR QUALITY

Huge clouds and potent effects

module image

Vapor quality is one of the main reasons that people revere Storz and Bickel vaporizers, and the Crafty+ does not disappoint, vapor production is substantial. The mix of conduction and convection gives you vapor right away and really pumps out big clouds with very little draw restriction. That convection heating gives you clean terpy flavor right from the very first bowl.

The cooling unit works really well, especially considering the volume and density of the vapor it handles. That said, remember these are some huge clouds, so you may still cough from time to time. As you can imagine, the effects are really potent from the Crafty+. Usually, with a fresh pack, just three or four draws is plenty for me.

EFFICIENCY

Efficient but not insanely so

This vape is efficient but not insanely so. It really reminds me of the Volcano in that regard. If you push your material you can get it pretty browned, but it’s definitely not the darkest ABV. The Crafty+ has accurate temperature readings, so when there isn’t any vapor at 365F you have to bump up the temp or repack your bowl if you want more.

It's easy and convenient to use overall. Just pack it, hit one button, and within a minute you’re ripping exceptional vapor with very little effort. Two good sessions in a pack make this an easy one to take with you.

Maintenance can be involved or simple, depending on how detailed you want to be. If you’re disassembling everything it can take a few minutes. I do a quick shake with ISO in a plastic bag then a thorough rinse under the tap and dry in front of the fan. Never ever soak plastic in alcohol, I keep it in the bag for less than 60 seconds.

Strengths

The Crafty+ provides a lot of quality vapor power in a device that’s easy to take anywhere. There are more easily portable vapes out there for sure, but the huge hits you get from the Crafty+ and the flavor are tough to match. The battery life increase helps me to pick this one as my travel vape, confident that I can get at least 4 bowls before I’ll need to recharge. 

The last strong point is ease of use. It has very free airflow so you don’t have to fight the milkshake for a rip, and the vape really couldn’t be easier to operate. Just load, press the button, wait until it vibrates and then inhale. And even if you never use the app you’ll still get a great performance with the Crafty+.

Weaknesses

On the downside, it still takes a relatively long time to heat up. Even though the Crafty+ is considerably faster than its predecessor, it does take a while to get warm. I wish they could cut that time in half, but I’m sure that would kill that battery. While the battery does have a long life now, it’d be much better with USB-C charging. Without a removable battery, when it dies, you’re simply left to wait. I'd be much happier if S&B could have upgraded this feature. 

Finally, this isn’t a cheap vape, and I don’t like that they removed some of the accessories that used to be included like the grinder and the brush that I use regularly. What's more, now S&B only include a little starter guide, instead of the full detailed instruction manual. I’d rather have more info than less when it comes to getting the most out of a vaporizer.

CONCLUSION

A killer choice as a travel-friendly vaporizer

The Crafty+ is a killer choice for anyone looking for a travel-friendly vaporizer that in no way compromises on vapor quality. It’s a generational sort of upgrade rather than a revolutionary new take on the Crafty. If you have an older Crafty and were hoping for a substantial feature upgrade, then you probably won’t be a huge fan of the Plus.

However, anyone looking for a vape they can take with them anywhere and get Storz & Bickel quality clouds will be happy with the Crafty+ edition. For me, USB-C charging and faster heat-up would make this a home-run, but overall, I'll be choosing the Crafty+ for on-the-go use as I’m a huge fan of the vapor quality and quantity along with the healthy battery life and portability.

Incredible

The Crafty Plus has most of the improvements under the hood. The battery has given me a solid hour plus. The days of short sessions are over. It was always to harsh for me, The Plus has improved its cooling system. With the "Dossage Cap" revolution! It needs to be lightly cleaned. From use to use there wasn't much to clean. The dosing caps also cool the Vapor. After years of improvement, I can finely enjoy The Crafty. I got the sneaky Pete Water Adapter. Plain and simply It was as strong as I have the experience, little to no coughing. Enjoy to those that invest, ... you may like the Sneaky Pete Stainless Steel Cooler and mouthpiece, The dosage caps are a must. Peace, Love & Vape, ^ ^ ^ The Vape Master ^ ^ ^
