The Storz & Bickel Crafty Vaporizer: Power Meets Portability
Designed and produced by German company, Storz and Bickel(S&B), The Crafty Vaporizer, is The Mighty’s bang, without its hefty buck. Longstanding creators of the Volcano, it’s no shock that S&B is constantly adapting to customer concerns by creating and updating a solution. Compatible with flower and concentrate, S&B redefines diversity in the vaporizer market.
Cannabis bible High Times Magazine considers both The Crafty and Mighty as some of the best herbal vaporizers of 2018. S&B consistently challenges their competitors by raising the bar when it comes to what to expect out of your vape. Our personal added bonus is the S&B filling aid which makes for ease of use and helping to keep your device clean.
The latest update in 2018 saw The Crafty get a 20% battery upgrade. The Crafty even has an app which has multiple features including temp control and device location. Comparing in size with smaller, weaker vapes, The Crafty, matches the force of The Mighty, accompanied with 10°F boost option for an extra push.
The device operates simply via one button, in absolute spite of S&B’s complex inner workings to achieve their trademark thick and flavourful clouds. The name of the device speaks for itself in the way of providing you with a plethora of tools and replacement parts. Unlike some vaporizer companies, even more replacements and accessories can be purchased.

We consider The Crafty to be a handheld Volcano, with its overwhelming performance and pocketability. Utilizing the best of both worlds in combustion and convection heating, vapers find an even distribution in heat throughout their chamber and session. This even cooking of herb disables the need to stop your session, pop the top off, and mix the contents just to avoid combustion.

I love how it’s so tiny compared to the Volcano they have. Wish I could’ve afforded the Mighty though 🙁 Next time! lol
Larry Rokin –
When I load it up, I use the filling tool every time. I don’t think brushes are necessary though I just use wipes.

Crafty is a very, very good vaporizer. Amazing vapor quality, with the option to super-heat your plant material to 210 CELSIUS if required (though most would consider this unnecessary as it may ruin the aroma and flavor of the plant material you are vaporizing).
Only thing I am not overjoyed about is the battery life which isn’t the best. Having said that, the crafty fits into my pocket easier than my phone OR wallet, making the mediocre battery actually seem outstanding when you consider the heat it reaches with such a physically small battery.
I am used to using the “Volcano” vaporizer, also made by Storz and Bickel, which has a very high vapor quality similar to the crafty, but I can’t take it down to the pub 😉
For some people, this piece of technology will change your life. Just keep at or near full charge and you will be right.
Oh, and be sure to clean the inside of the cooling unit REGULARLY (or you will surely come to regret it later when you nearly break your lungs trying to inhale past the cooled oils and resin resulting from the heated material).

Great product and company, thank you for making my life easier

Performance is great. The only issue with the Crafty is battery time. The app needs to provide more accurate information on the battery life. Great service from City Vaporizer.
Kerry T –
Love it really easy to use
One thing, I wish the charge lasted longer
