The vape market is full of different brands, products, and types to choose from. If you’re new to the vaping community or are simply thinking about investing in either the mighty or the crafty vaporizer then you’ve come to the right place! Today we’re going to cover the basic differences between these two high performing units and give a bit of advice on choosing the right unit.

The Main Differences

The performance in the two pretty much at par with reliability and accuracy in the temperature settings. The Mighty is a bit bigger than the Crafty and about twice the weight as the Crafty. Since the Mighty is bigger it requires more power meaning it needs double the batteries or it dies out quicker. So the Mighty comes with two lithium ion batteries and has an LED display. The Crafty does however come with a free remote control app that helps you control and use the Storz & Bickel vaporizer by the touch of your smart phone. You can adjust the temperature setting from basic to booster, track the juice left on the battery, and other access to other Crafty settings.

Mighty VaporizerThe Mighty 

The Mighty Vaporizer is one of the easiest devices to carry with you and to use. It also doesn’t have much of a learning curve. All you have to do is press down the easy-to-find orange button to heat up the unit after you load it with all of your favorite ground up herbs. For efficient vaporizing of the dry herbs, make sure they are gound up pretty fine but not enough to be powder yet have them all be the same size. Fully load the heating chamber but don’t pack it all the way down. Setting the temperature is incredibly easy so you don’t have to worry about herbs heating up too quickly or even too much since the temperature is at your fingertips. Additionally, the unit comes with a clear temperature display as well as a battery life display for easy reading. Convection vaporizers, which the Mighty is, work with patience. Don’t inhale too quickly and allow the herbs to be vaporized while you are drawing the vapor in.

The Mighty vaporizer is roughly 230 grams in weight which is half pound, 5.5 inches tall and 3.2 inches wide as well as around 1.2 inches deep. For size comparison, it is a tad bit smaller than the iPhone. It also offers a deep battery life. Most vape users can get around eight full vaping sessions from a full battery with the Mighty. This is incredible, considering that the average vape battery life is somewhere between 2-4 hours of in-use life. Thanks to this powerful battery, the Mighty also heats up faster than the average unit. Usually, the Mighty will heat up to a full 356 degrees Fahrenheit in just under 1 minute and 30 seconds. The temperature range on it goes from 104°F – 410°F.

Cleaning is easy with not much maintenance required. It comes with its own cleaning brush designed to thoroughly clean the Mighty. It keeps the screen clean of small debris from your herbs. If you use the liquid pad then it will need cleaning too, which can be soaked in isopropyl alcohol.

Crafty VaporizerThe Crafty

Just as the Mighty vaporizer offers clean and pure vaping with delightful flavor, the Crafty Vape also offers vape users an enjoyable vaping experience. The Crafty differs a great deal from the Mighty. Take the size for example. The Crafty is much smaller and easier to carry with you than the Mighty. Weighing in around just 135 grams, the Crafty is easy to put in your back pocket, purse, or even luggage and go on your way. The height is around 4.3 inches tall and 2.2 inches in depth as well as 1.3 inches wide. Put this together and the Crafty exceeds the Mighty when it comes to portability. While the grind level of the herbs used with the Crafty must be fine like the Mighty. To achieve the absolute best vapor quality, make sure your herbal trench is filled up but not too packed so all the herbs in the chamber can get the same amount of heat all around. Make sure to take slow drags of vapor too.

Because of the size differences, the Crafty does not include a LCD display and can be adjusted by the app instead of strictly on the device. The swiveling mouthpiece is adjustable and can be removed for portability sake. Additionally, the Crafty uses a mesh screen that filters out the particles and delivers a powerful and delicious vapor. It also has an amazing airflow that allows you to take in the most amount vapor possible. It doesn’t really need stirring as it does a good job of getting everything in the chamber heated evenly but if needed, you can use the stir tool hidden inside of the unit.

Isopropyl alcohol is a good idea to use when cleaning the units screen and built up residue but only use the alcohol on a q tip. Don’t overdo the cleaning but just make sure the airways are clean and not filled with residue. Finish off the cleaning with the included brush.


In the end, it is up to you determine which unit works best for your needs but we’re confident you will be pleased with either unit regardless of which one you choose.
