The Crafty Vaporizer: Storz & Bickel Does It Again
German company Storz & Bickel has been one of the leading manufacturers in dry herb vaporizers for a long time. Although best known for the desktop Volcano Vaporizer, the company also produces a leader in the portable vape game in the Crafty Vaporizer. At a price of $339, the Crafty isn’t the cheapest option on the market, but it is one of the best, most well-integrated portable vaporizers you can buy.
Made with a high-quality plastic material, the Crafty is durable and well-designed. One of the best design features is the vented body, which helps keep the Crafty from getting too hot in your hand. The Crafty fits in your hand and weighs less than half a pound, standing as one of the lightest portable vaporizers out there. The mouthpiece slots into the vape itself, making it easy to prevent from breaking. One of the best features of the Crafty is the inclusion of a tool that fits onto the dry herb chamber, allowing the user to easily and accurately place their blends into the chamber and minimize spills.
The Crafty has a ton of convenient features, such as LED lights on its body and a vibration feature. These two features are mostly noticed with the power-saving feature, which turns the Crafty off after one minute of inactivity. When this happens, the Crafty will vibrate and the LED lights will blink, drawing your attention to it in case you didn’t want to turn it off yet.Another key feature of the Crafty vaporizer is its easy, consistent pull. Many
portable vapes struggle to always give an acceptable draw but the Crafty doesn’t have that problem. Another included accessory is the liquid pad, which can be placed on top of your dry herbs in the chamber if you don’t want to use too much but still want to get a strong pull out of it.
Perhaps the most convenient feature of this dry herb vape, however, is the fact that it has a micro-USB charging port. Anyone with an Android phone can use their charger for that to charge the Crafty, and with the prevalence of micro-USB nowadays, you’ll likely have many chargers to use for your Crafty. The battery life is decent, at about 45 minutes, but the Crafty also has a feature called pass-through charging. What that means is that it can still be used while charging (provided it has a minimum of 20% battery life) for ultimate convenience.
One of the features that makes the Crafty such a unique vaporizer is the mobile integration. There is an app out that is available for both iPhones and Androids that allows you to connect to your Crafty via Bluetooth. This gives you access to a ton of features, including the ability to change the brightness of the LED lights, as well as the ability to change the default temperature of the “normal” and “boost” modes of the vape.
You can also allow the app to give you notifications. With this, you can set up your Crafty to begin heating up and then set it down and forget about it, because your phone will receive a notification when the vape is at temperature. The mobile integration is a one-of-a-kind feature when it comes to portable vapes, and the fact that it’s done so well is just another example of the quality you can expect from Storz & Bickel.
With a sturdy design, top-shelf draw quality, and excellent integration, the Crafty has set the standard for the portable vape game as one of its elite players. Add in the convenience provided by the extra accessories that are designed to make your experience as streamlined as possible, and the Crafty is a must own portable vaporizer.
