Review Score: 96/100 - 96
Price Range: $339 - $345
Works with: Dry Herb, Oils, Waxes and Concentrates
Dimensions: 4.3 x 2.2 x 1.3 inches
The Crafty vaporizer is similar to its cousin, the Mighty vaporizer, except it is a few inches smaller. It is the perfect portable vaporizer for someone looking for a discrete unit they can use in public. It is super lightweight, so it can fit into pockets without weighing clothing down and does not feel bulky in hand. It also has competitive battery power, plus backup battery options, making it an excellent travel companion.

This unit is easy to use, and impressively tech-enabled. With a purchase of a Crafty vaporizer, users get a bunch of free goodies along with it. It comes with a power adapter and USB cable, spare seal rings and three extra screens, a drip pad, a filling aid, an herb mill, and cleaning brush to ensure that customer’s vaporizer stays in tip-top shape. Plus, users will also receive a user manual should they have any questions about setting up or using their vape.

The Crafty vaporizer looks a bit like a walkie-talkie in appearance. It has a ridged exterior that enables the unit to eliminate internal heat more efficiently, which helps preserve its cooling mechanisms and its battery life. It fits into the palm of a hand as comfortably, making it perfect for using on the go.

Control the Crafty Vaporizer with the Remote App

Many vaporizers these days have a compatible app to go along with them, and the Crafty vaporizer is no exception. The app allows users to customize their unit further than the limited space on the vape allows for. Users can download the app for free on the Google Play store and the Apple iTunes store. Because the Crafty vaporizer does not have an LED screen, this is how users can view and adjust the unit’s temperature.

They also have the option of setting a preferred booster temperature for that extra little kick. The settings category of the app enables users to turn their charge indicating lamp on or off should they need to be more subtle. They are also able to adjust the amount of time of the unit’s automatic shut-off or view user tips and information about their purchase.

Enjoy the Crafty Longer with a Durable Battery

The Crafty has one rechargeable lithium battery in this unit that typically lasts for 3-4 sessions. It is also compatible with pass-through charging, which means that its power bank can simultaneously charge itself and the unit. So, therefore users can use the vape while it charges. Be wary though, because the unit uses approximately 20% of its battery to initially heat up its’ vaporization chamber, so users cannot immediately put this feature into effect. They have to wait a little bit if they do not want their unit to die in the middle of their session. It is also worth noting that this vape automatically shuts off after not being used for a minute. This self-shut-off helps customers save their battery life when on the go.

The Crafty by Storz and Bickel: How Does It Vaporize

The Crafty uses both convection and conduction heating to provide its user with the best vaporization experience. The unit has an incredibly impressive temperature range. Its lowest temperature setting is 104F, (40C), and it can reach all the way up to 410F, (210C). This wide breadth allows users to experiment with all kinds of different heat levels to find the one they like best. This is probably the best feature of this device. Heating dry herb input at different temperatures causes different tastes and effects, and this unit truly allows the user to evoke all different kinds of experiences from their vape session. Not many vaporizers have a heat range like this, let alone portable ones. The Crafty also has a cooling unit to make sure that even at its highest temperature, the vapor is still cool and refreshing with every inhale.

What Else is Out There?

Flowermate V5S
The portable dry herb vaporizer Flowermate V5S has a similar build as the Crafty vaporizer, but comes at a much cheaper price. However, its battery does not last as long and substance is at risk for combustion. It is good for beginners, but not for experienced vapors.

Firefly 2
The Firefly 2 is equipped for on-the-go use. The Firefly is said to produce a higher quality of vapor, and its aesthetic is customizable due to several color options. Its downside though is that only has four different pre-set temperature settings.

Is the Crafty Vaporizer Worth It?

If the user is looking for a simple portable and concealable vaporizer for a few uses throughout the day, then the answer to this question is yes. The Crafty Vaporizer is a high quality unit that comes protected with a 2-year warranty, which makes consumers feel more comfortable carrying it around with them. They can just shove it into their pants or sweatshirt pocket before leaving the house.

There is not much you can customize from the actual unit itself due to the small surface area of it, but its simply designed compatible app makes up for this. It takes care of all of the users’ adjusting needs, and even offers extra information about the unit and tips for getting the most out of it. All in all, the Crafty vaporizer is the perfect tool for a beginner or experienced vaper with light-medium use of a vape throughout the day.

Review Score: 96/100 - 96

  • Discreet
  • App-enabled
  • Lightweight

    Storz & Bickel’s customer service is everything you would hope for from any supplier. They stand behind their product…no questions asked.
