The Crafty and its larger brother the Mighty are the first portable vaporizers from the manufacturer of the legendary Volcano - Storz & Bickel. If you're looking for the best possible vapor quality in a portable unit this is one you definitely should consider. The vapor is cool, flavorful, amazingly smooth, and it produces it in spades with very little effort or technique required. The Crafty and the Mighty are the closest experience to a desktop unit that you can take with you. The manufacturing quality is second to none, this is a luxury device and a great investment for the true connoisseur.

VAPE DESIGN

High quality construction and single button operation

The Crafty vaporizer itself isn’t tiny but it isn’t huge either, it’s roughly the same dimensions as my iPhone X. The Crafty is very comfortable to hold, it’s a good weight and is made in Germany from food-grade plastics. I am totally comfortable with these materials being around heat. The mouthpiece flips in and out, while it’s flipped in the top of the unit has a nice flat profile for pocketing. When you flip the mouthpiece out to vape a little notch lets you know it’s in the correct position.

The whole top part of the vape is the cooling unit and it simply pivots off the body of the Crafty to reveal the oven for your herb. After you use the filling aid and you’ve got a full oven, the cooling unit easily pivots back on and snuggly into place. It holds really well and won’t just pop off unintentionally. The Crafty can be controlled by a single button on the device itself, but most functionality is delivered through a very well-executed phone app. There is also a handy tamping tool that slides into its own spot under the vape.

HOW TO USE THE VAPE

Simple to load and use

After you’ve ground up some herb with the included grinder carefully transfer it over to the filling aid. The filling aid twists and clicks firmly into place on top of the Crafty so it won’t just fall off and spill your herb. After you take out the plastic piece in the middle it’s easy to load the bowl, then just put that middle piece back in and place the top back on the filling aid. Now the whole thing can slide off your Crafty while keeping all your herb safe inside. This is a very convenient way to load your oven to the perfect level without spilling any and to store what’s leftover afterwards. After tamping the bowl twist the cooling unit back on and you’re ready to vape!

module image

Using the Crafty couldn’t be simpler, flip out the mouthpiece and turn the vape on with the orange button. The LED will turn red while it heats up, it’ll turn green and the Crafty will vibrate when it reaches your set temperature. The first pull was thin because the herb was still warming up, but the flavor was very nice. The second hit was huge and tasty as were several tokes afterwards. When you’re done you can either let your Crafty sit for 60 seconds to automatically turn off or hold the button until the LED turns blue and the unit powers down.

To charge your Crafty, just take out the tamping tool for access to the USB port and connect to either the wall adapter for faster charging or your computer if that’s more convenient. When the Crafty has 20% battery power it can be used to vape with passthrough charging. The LED will flash blue rapidly between 31-60% charge, flash slower from 61-96%, and it will be solid blue when fully juiced.

COMPANION APP

Super useful, but not essential

The Crafty has a very user-friendly companion app available for both iPhone and Android. It has many functions, including a display for the exact temperature of your Crafty as well as the current battery remaining out of six bars capacity. The temperature range is quite wide, going from 104F to 410F. You can even customize your booster temperature, then going into boost mode is as simple as a press of the single button on the Crafty. When the boost temperature has been reached the LED will flash red.

Speaking of the LED, the super-cool folks at Storz & Bickel made the brightness of the light adjustable via the app. It goes from max “looking directly into the Sun” all the way down to off and several levels in between. You can also turn off the vibration. They even included a PDF of the instruction manual in the app in case you lose the paper copy.

CLEANING

Cleaning can be an involved process

module image

The Crafty can handle a lot of normal use without needing to be cleaned. When it is needed, maintenance can be an involved process. First, take off the cooling unit and brush around the oven, changing the gasket if you need to. Pull the mouthpiece off and again check the gasket. Slide the top cap lock back to pop it off, then separate the top and bottom portions of the cooling unit and clean around inside as needed.

The tamping tool can also be used to remove gaskets for cleaning. Keep track of where your gaskets go when you remove them. When you have the cooling unit disassembled submerge it in isopropyl alcohol for ten minutes or so. Afterwards, rinse thoroughly with water and air dry. Reassemble the cooling unit and you’re ready for a clean vaping sesh.

PERFORMANCE

Out of this world vapor quality

The battery life of the unit isn’t amazing, it only lasted me two or three bowls. However, the auto-off function does help it last longer. Heat up time was over one and a half minutes, which is also less than amazing. We carry the newest version of the Crafty featuring upgraded batteries with +20% battery life.

Having said all that, the vapor quality from the Crafty is truly out of this world! It is certainly in the same family as the Volcano. The taste was amazing and there was zero plastic odour after the initial burn off. The first three or four hits are great and it drops off from there of course. This is primarily a convection vape so the flavor is naturally top-notch. Draw resistance is minimal on the Crafty so huge rips are possible even with the heater re-engaging. Vapor smoothness from the Crafty is great as well, nice and cool, not harsh at all while still being very satisfying. It’s one of the best I’ve used yet.

The build feels solid and the materials are rugged, I was really impressed with the quality of the design. The efficiency is average but the AVB that comes out is very evenly browned with no hotspots or scorching. While the Crafty is not a very stealthy vape it is portable enough to be very convenient for road trips etc. while still giving you an amazing experience. The effects are nothing short of potent, even those who claim to not feel vapes will absolutely feel a hit from the Crafty.

PRICE POINT

A premium portable vaporizer, you get what you pay for

module image

At the time of release the Crafty was one of the most expensive portable vaporizers on the market, the price has fallen slightly since the release of the upgraded version - the Crafty+ . The Crafty is a premium portable vaporizer. It’s arguably one of the best portable vaporizers available, it isn’t a “cheap” piece and it’s not supposed to be. You do get what you pay for, in this case, a pocketable Volcano that lives up to the Storz & Bickel reputation.

Strengths

The overall vaping experience from the Crafty is unrivalled. The quality and taste of the vapor is superb and the draw resistance is very low. It is both a portable and well-made vape that is still 100% capable of knocking your face off. The app is very functional and it’s actually nice to only have one button on the vape itself. The extra pieces of kit that are included were brilliant, especially the filling aid. The instructions are incredibly thorough. Storz & Bickel’s focus on the user experience is exceptional and I wish other vape manufacturers would do this too.

Weaknesses

The mouthpiece leaks a little vapor if it’s left flipped out while turned on, but this is a small gripe. I do wish it had a user-replaceable battery because it’ll be expensive to replace when it deteriorates after a few years of use. I’d also like a more powerful heater that can keep up with the bigger tokes, I can’t hit the Crafty as hard as I’d like to. For the money, a swappable battery and more powerful heater would be awesome.

CONCLUSION

I wholeheartedly recommend the Crafty

While the Crafty isn’t perfect, the almost unbelievable vapor quality it so generously provides more than makes up for its shortcomings. I don’t currently know of another portable vaporizer that makes clouds quite like this one does. The experience for the owner is next-level and I wholeheartedly recommend the Crafty.

Wow,what a vape!!!

Loving the nice huge clouds, the long lasting effects, and the great tasting sessions. Definitely worth the investment for the person looking to get th mos bang for your buck from your product. Battery life is average but the overall performance outweighs the battery life.

Lots of Power in a small Package

This thing is just a mini Mighty. it works really wall and pumps out the vapor. Only drawback is the small battery. I think it makes up for it thought with its size and portability.
