Newest Version Mighty and Crafty Vaporizer
2018 Improvements & Adjustments
Update: Read About the 2021 Crafty+ and Mighty+ Here
The Mighty and the Crafty Vaporizers were released in 2014 and three years later Storz & Bickel still have us waiting in anticipation for their next new vaporizer. However constantly releasing new vaporizers is not Storz & Bickel’s game. We need to remember that the Classic Volcano Vaporizer was released to the American Market in 2003. Since 2003 Storz & Bickel have rolled out four additional vaporizers, one of which is just a Digital Volcano – the digital version of a Classic Volcano,so it’s hard to even say they have 5 different vaporizers. To add more context it was over a decade before Storz & Bickel rolled out their portable vaporizer line ( the Mighty and the Crafty) after the success they had with the Volcano.
Storz & Bickel really focus on quality vaporizers more than anything and there is no need to constantly re-invent the wheel or add gimmicky features in the name of rolling out a “new vaporizer”
With that said they do make minor improvements to their current line up when possible. So what are the improvements to the most recent and newest version Mighty and Crafty Vaporizer ?
Mighty Vaporizer Updates
The latest 2018 model Mighty Vaporizer has the new white color packaging, They started rolling these out at the end of 2017. We have seen this packaging design with the new Volcano Vaporizer and on select accessories. This will soon be the packaging for all Storz & Bickel items across the board. So what is new with the improved Mighty Vaporizer besides the packaging ?
A quick double tap of the power button will up your temperature by 10 degrees. This is nice, but I do feel adjusting the temperature up with the temperature up / down is rather easy and there is not much need for the Mightys boost mode.
Auto Shut Off Warning
The latest model Mighty Vaporizer has a haptic shut off warning. The older model Mighty would just vibrate and turn off after being on for two minutes, but the new ones gives you a warning that it is about to power off with a long vibration around 30 seconds before powering down and then more repeated shorter vibrations as if the vibrations are counting down for you. If do not want it to shut off just press the power button and keep your Mighty on for another two minutes.
The batteries have been updated on the new Mighty Vaporizer to go longer and stronger. The battery life on the Mighty vaporizer was never an issue and now it is even less of one now with 20% more battery power. On a full charge the updated Mighty Vaporizer is going to last about 2.5 hours on a single charge.
We’re still digging through this one to find out any secrets. So far it just appears to be more of the same with more information about the specifics that you get in the old manual. We’ve always been a fan of the quick start manuals.
Crafty Vaporizer Updates
As with the Mighty the updated Crafty Vaporizer boasts 20% more battery life. The Crafty Vaporizer critics found the initial battery level of the device problematic with the unit always requiring a charge and not having the pass through function charge of the Mighty which permitted use during charging.
While you still cannot use the Crafty during it’s charge, the 20% improvement in battery life is a very welcome update for the latest model Crafty Vaporizer.
The Crafty has always had boost mode so that feature is only an update to the Mighty Vaporizer and the Crafty’s packaging ( as of September 2017 ) hasn’t been switched tothe new white packaging.
The Crafty App has undergone some pretty cool adjustments. The great thing about this is you do not even need the latest model Crafty to enjoy the App’s updates.
With the new Crafty App you can…
Locate your Crafty via your phone – Not with GPS but you can turn on the Crafty giving away it’s location. So if it’s across town this feature isn’t like it sounds.
Save multiple Crafty’s on your IOS or Android device – Previous to this you had to remove a Crafty to add another one
Extend Automatic Shut off time – Another critique of the Crafty and Mighty Vaporizers are the automatic shut off. Albeit it is not too challenging to turn them back on it does provide an extra step to your session. With the new Crafty Vaporizer App you can extend the automatic shut off on your device for up to 5 minutes.
Turn on your Crafty via The App – One of the best new features I enjoy the most is the ability to fire my Crafty vaporizer up with my smartwatch. Heat up time on the Storz & Bickel vaporizers takes a few minutes. This way I can have my Crafty Vaporizer ready to rock and roll even if I am in another room. The biggest issue with this is that I have got caught up with something else and totally forgot that I had a Crafty Vaporizer patiently waiting for me to enjoy. So that automatic shut off proves useful for times such as those.
Unfortunately to access the new features of the updated Crafty Vaporizer you will need the latest Crafty vaporizer firmware which only comes on the latest Crafty. If you have a Crafty with Firmware V02.50 or older you will only be able to access the multiple Crafty feature on the updated app. A good way to tell if you are getting the latest Crafty is by a Sticker which let’s you know it has 20% more battery or if the Crafty comes in a white box.
So as you see, the fine folks of Storz & Bickel are always hard at work and listening to the customer’s feedback. They take the best vaporizers on the market and make tweaks on current models to constantly make them better.
