The Mighty Vaporizer

If You had to Pick One Vaporizer For The Rest of Your Life, What Would It Be?

If you could only own one vaporizer for the rest of your life what would it be?
Now typically I am against questions of this nature : If you could only eat just one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? What would you bring to a desert island if you could only take one thing?

Stuck on an Island with the Mighty vaporizer
There are no good answers to questions that force you into extreme and unrealistic ultimatums.

I don’t like these types of questions because they are inherently dumb due to the zero probability of anyone ever being forced to make a decision like this, or that there just isn’t a good answer.

The Challenge

I wanted to give a quick retort and just settle for the idea that the question was too difficult to answer. It could even be expected that I would ramble on with pros and cons for all of the vaporizers on the market today without ever reaching an answer. Instead, I actually gave it some serious thought. I have tried almost all high end loose leaf vaporizers on the market over the years – how was it going to be possible to choose a single one? Then the answer just came to me. I was actually surprised at how quickly I responded after needing to think about it for only a short period of time. 

The Obvious Choice Was Not The Winner

It was funny, because the go to answer for the one vaporizer to have for the rest of your life is the Volcano Vaporizer. It’s the pinnacle, the luxury standard, considered the best on the planet and for good reason – and It’s been my go to for years. My Volcano still sees more than regular use, but after careful consideration it occurred to me that lugging around and filling up bags in my 40s while my in-laws were visiting town may be just a bit too much.

If You're Only Going to Have One Vaporizer Forever, It Should Be Portable

If I am going to have a vaporizer for the rest of my life I want to take it on the go with me. Not that I am especially active, but I rarely smoke (combust) my herbs anymore. Having a portable vaporizer to put in my backpack and take with me on travel or for day trips to the local swim hole are important.

The Crafty and The Firefly 2 boast Bluetooth Integration, which has been great in combating the proliferation of counterfeit vaporizers.

The Wow Factor

At the same time, I’m social and hope to remain so as I progress through life. So if I can only have one vaporizer for the rest of my life I want something that can be shared and enjoyed with amazement by those who may have not yet hopped on board with vapor therapy.  There’s some great portable units out there that have a significant wow factor, but a portable which I can throw inside a sunglasses case is going to lack the ability to coalesce a group of friends around a fire.

Simplicity & Ease

Drawing on the need for portability, the vaporizer I would choose to use for the rest of my life can’t have an insane amount of moving parts. I think the biggest frustration faced with a lot of great new end vaporizers on the market are the battery chargers, external batteries, whips, draws, baskets, and so on that come with the unit. The market is growing and every new vaporizer is trying to set themselves apart. Just a personal opinion, but ease of use and intuition are great for me.

Built Tough

If you haven’t just scrolled to the bottom of the page already, I thank you as I forgot the 2nd most important aspect – Durability.

Isn't the Crafty the Same as the Mighty?

So why not the Crafty, which is basically the same thing? Now remember the question was regarding if you had to own one for the rest of your life. I do opt for the Crafty when on the go as I prefer its more compact size. If you’re looking to throw a vaporizer in your pocket the Mighty will not fit, however it can easily be placed in a small backpack or purse.

The Crafty vs. The Mighty vaporizer
A shot from the back giving some context for size. Think of the Crafty like and iPhone 6 and your Mighty like an iPhone 6+.

The size of the Crafty is the only aspect I prefer over the Mighty. The Mighty Vaporizer has the Crafty beat in all other categories. That is my personal opinion. Another aspect one may enjoy about the Crafty over the Mighty is the bluetooth connectivity. Personally, this is something I don’t care much for as I don’t like fidgeting with two devices on the go. Still, I can see how it is rather neat and handy.

A Mighty Conclusion

The Mighty is all encompassing. I don’t need the phone to change the temperature, that can be done from the device itself.
