The Crafty is an innovative new portable vaporizer by Storz & Bickel, the creators of the Volcano and Plenty vaporizers… which means this is a serious vape. It has a robust design and has top of the line vapor quality for a portable unit; you can truly get huge clouds with the Crafty.
CRAFTY BUILD QUALITY & DESIGN
The unit is very well made out of sturdy plastic and feels very solid in your hands; it can definitely take a couple drops. It has a unique design with vents which allow the heat to dissipate so it’s not too hot on inhale. The mouthpiece is external and swivels out for quick use. Overall, it offers the same exceptional quality as the Volcano Classic, Volcano Digit and Plenty vaporizers.
CRAFTY SIZE & PORTABILITY
The Crafty has dimensions of 4.3″H x 2.2″L x 1.3″W which is comparable to the Davinci Ascent or an iPhone.. It can fit comfortably in your hand and pocket. It weighs only 135g and is quite light for a vaporizer which means that weight should be no problem.
USING THE CRAFTY & DOWNLOADABLE APP
Unscrew the top which gives you access to the herb chamber, which has a capacity of about 0.3g. Grab the filling tool (which is included), place it on top of the chamber and pack in your herb. This tool is really useful because it stops any wasted herb from falling out while packing.
Reattach the mouth-piece and hold the power button for about 2 seconds to turn it on. The vaporizer will then vibrate, the LED will blink and it’ll start to heat up. After about 90 seconds it will vibrate again, the light will go green, and you’re ready to inhale! Easy peasy. If you tap the power button twice when it’s on you’ll engage “Boost Mode” which bumps the heat up a level.
The default heat settings out of the box are 356F (180C) and 383F (195C), but if you have an Android or Apple device you can download the Crafty app which allows you to control the temperature via Bluetooth.
CLEANING THE CRAFTY VAPORIZER
Be sure to make a habit of brushing out the bowl after every use to keep it clean. The other part that might need a better scrub is the mouth piece, but it’s detachable so you can get in the nooks and crannies with a q-tip. Overall, cleaning the Crafty is very simple.
CRAFTY BATTERY & CHARGING
Due to its small size, one of the only downsides of the Crafty is its battery life. One charge will last about 3 sessions or 45 minutes or use. While this is long enough for most people, if you’re a heavy user you’ll have to charge it daily.
Luckily, the Crafty does have pass-through charging, meaning you can use it while its charging (which takes about 2 hours). It uses a Micro USB to charge so you can also plug it in to your laptop or grab an external USB charger for long trips.
CRAFTY VAPORIZER WARRANTY
Like all other Storz & Bickel vaporizers the Crafty comes with a 3 year manufacturer’s warranty.
