Summary

The Crafty is currently our #1 portable vaporizer. It is a little bigger than the Pax vaporizer, however it still is able to fit into your pocket. I really like this vaporizer due to being able to vape with it on the go, its outstanding vapor quality, and how there is very little to no draw resistance.

The Crafty is the sibling of the Mighty and comes from the same company as the people who made the Volcano, Storz & Bickel. Overall, it’s an outstanding vaporizer and has quickly become my “go to” when I am in need of something portable that I can fit into my pocket.

Why I like the Crafty

Up until I purchased the Crafty, I had been using the Pax pretty much every single day while I am on the go. Whether it be to work, school, running errands, or hanging with friends, I always brought the Pax with me and I still do from time to time because it’s smaller than the Crafty…But now, I am all over the Crafty for 2 main reasons. 1) Its vapor quality and 2) not much draw resistance.

The vapor quality is similar to that of the Storz and Bickel products, the Volcano and the Plenty vapes. Which is extremely impressive for a device so small.

One of my biggest annoyances with the Pax vape is that you are not able draw like a champ from it..meaning there is some draw resistance. With the Crafty there is very little. You are able to get a lot of vapor if you so please. w

Heat up Time

It takes about 90 seconds to heat up, which isn’t the best. But for a vape that replicates the Volcano, it is pretty darn good!

Heat Settings

There are two settings that the vape comes with out of the box. It’s 356F and 383F. If you want the first setting, you will just push the power button once. If you want the higher temperature, you will push the power button twice.

Smartphone App is Dope

They made an app that does a bunch of stuff with your vaporizer. The app is connected through bluetooth and you are able to do a couple of things with it.

  • You can change the default temperatures to whatever you’d like
    • If you’re not a fan of the temperatures you’re given you’ll be able to alter them in the app.
  • You can change the LED lights on the Crafty

Battery Life

It’s about 45 minutes worth of battery life. It will take around 2 hours to charge it up to full battery. If there is any downside to this vape, this is probably it.

The good news is, is that if you are low on battery, you can plug it in and use it. This is something most vaporizers don’t have it.

Some more good news is that it only takes a micro-usb charger so you really can charge it wherever you please nowadays.

If you’re not sure what your battery is it, every time you power on the Crafty it will tell you how much batteyr is left by the blue light blinking at a different speed.

Comparison to other Portable Vaporizers

The performance in terms of vapor quality blows all the other portables out of the park (aside from the Crafty). Really, you’re going to want to ask yourself two things. Will I be using this on the go? Do I have enough room in my pockets for this? If yes is the answer to both, you will want to check out the Crafty.

If you want a little bit cheaper of an option, you should check out the Pax. I know they are still pretty expensive, but the Pax is a little cheaper and overall a great vape for throwing into your pocket and not even noticing it. It’s super small…like the length of your hand small.

The last vape I will recommend for people on a very tight budget, is the Arizer solo. The vapor quality isn’t as good and you can’t fit it into your pocket, but it’s a cheaper portable vape that many people like over the Magic Flight Launch Box. At this point in time, I really don’t recommend MFLB because too many people have been disappointed with it.

Comparison to the Mighty

There are some distinct differences between the two devices that are some of my most asked questions.

  • The Mighty is bigger. It cannot fit in your pocket very well – it’s too bulky. However, it is still considered a portable because you can transport it rather easily unlike the desktop vaporizers.
  • The Mighty has a longer battery life by 45 minutes.
  • You can change the temperature and see the heat settings from a digital panel on the device rather than a smartphone app.

Where to Buy It

There is one place that I buy all my vapes and that’s from VapeWorld. They are an authorized vaporizer site that gives you free overnight shipping when you buy a vape. This is one the only vaporizer stores that does this. They also almost always have a coupon available on their website to get the vape at a better deal.

nice and easy
One of the best portables but the battery is a huge downside... I regret not buying the mighty. Btw, the company's customer service is amazing. While covered by their guarantee, they sent me two brand new, factory sealed devices only because some minor dysfunctions the previous had (second time was my fault but they still sent me a third new device!)

It's not true! It wont work off the mains as stated in the manual!
Hi, dont know if this has been mentioned, but this vaporizer WILL NOT WORK OFF THE MAINS as stated in the manual. Reply from storz&bickel repair service: The CRAFTY vaporizer has no real pass through. If the CRAFTY is operated while plugged in, the batteries will not be bypassed. The discharge current is higher than the current that is used to charge the battery. Therefore, the CRAFTY can only be operated while plugged in if a partial charging has been carried out beforehand. However, this process is stressful for the battery and may shorten the battery life faster. The MIGHTY vaporizer has a real pass through. So the MIGHTY can be operated through mains and the batteries then will be passed. We can offer you an upgrade to a MIGHTY vaporizer by paying the difference in price (MIGHTY-CRAFTY) of 50.00€. cheeky f*%^s

Poor Quality, high price
When it works, it is great. It unfortunately stopped working because of an electrical short 6 months in. Crafty fixed it and recommended that I pay to have a new battery put in for $75.00. I declined and 15-20 uses after getting it back, it stopped working again Another short. Do your research and talk to people who have had the Crafty for over a year. You will hear the same story over and over. Oh, and don't try to call them. They REFUSE to provide any phone support. I asked and begged. VERY disappointed!

Reliability issues
I bought a Crafty in June of 2015 and it stopped functioning within six weeks. I sent it back and they immediately sent a replacement. However, it is now December and I'm sending the replacement back! Two have failed in less than six months. Not very reliable. When the Crafty broke the first time, I bought a Pax 2 and alternated between the Crafty (reducing the load on the Crafty) and the Pax. I have had NO problems with the Pax, but the Crafty crashed again.

Poor Quality
Owned the Crafty for 1 week when pieces of the outside plastic started chipping off. Returned it to the factory for repair. The day after I got it back another piece of plastic chipped off.

Yes it's worth the money
Quality product and great vape production. I use just a pinch of herb and really get my vape on. The Crafty does not burn your herb and you will pay for the Crafty just because of all the herb you will save. The reviews say it all. Save your money and your health by vaping with The Crafty. More bang for your buck.
