Mighty Crafty

The Superior Portable – Crafty or Mighty?

If you’ve read our individual reviews of the Storz & Bickel Crafty vaporizer and its big brother the Mighty vaporizer, you are aware that both are among the best on the market. But which is the superior portable vape? In this comparison – Crafty Vaporizer vs Mighty Vaporizer – we’ll cover the differences and provide the insight necessary for you to decide. Because this is a matchup that can be argued ad infinitum. We couldn’t decide so we have one of each. But giving respect to common sense, and budgetary restraint, you should probably read our analysis before going that far.

Size is Relative

While both vapes are bonafide portables, the Mighty is a bit larger…and heavier. This is not to say the Mighty isn’t travel-ready, but if you’re looking for something you can comfortably pocket on-the-go then the Crafty is more likely your flavor.

Battery Life and Charging

If battery life is more important than size then the Mighty would be your first choice. The Mighty offers 90 minutes per charge, while the Crafty comes in at half that with 45 minutes. This equates to 6 or 7 vape sessions for the Mighty and 3 to 4 sessions for the Crafty.

Also, the Mighty can be used while its battery is completely discharged so long as it’s plugged in. This is primarily due to having another battery, which doubles the battery life.

The Crafty, on the other hand, needs a 20 percent charge before it can be used while plugged in – any less and it will not turn on. The Crafty also offers the flexibility of USB charging through a laptop or similar device. The Mighty does not offer USB charging and must be plugged into an electrical outlet.

The Crafty App

The Crafty comes with a smartphone app, which we wrote about rather extensively in our Crafty Review, that allows the control of temperature and other settings from your phone.

The Mighty doesn’t have an app but offers precise temperature control and other options straight from the device. The Mighty also has a digital display, whereas the Crafty makes use of the app or an on-device LED to convey status. The Mighty’s digital display is preferable in our opinion, but either option gets the job done.

Good Vibrations

Both the Crafty and the Mighty offer a unique vibration notification feature. Rather than staring at your vape waiting for it to reach the appropriate temperature, you can rely on this vibration feature to notify you when the chamber is hot and ready.  It’s also useful when you just want to hold the vape in your hand or put it in your pocket while walking or waiting.

Vapor Quality

With respect to vapor quality, both are excellent. Vapor production is so good they’re actually better than many desktops. But you might have assumed as much since both are made by the makers of the Volcano, Storz & Bickel. Needless to say, their vapor is better than most other portables we’ve tested. So if you’re looking for a top of the line portable that produces incredibly tasty, full-bodied vapor, both the Mighty and the Crafty have got you covered.


All things considered, both portables are superior products. Regardless of which one you choose, you will not be disappointed. For those who want something a bit more compact, the Crafty is where it’s at. For those who want extra battery life and precision digital controls right on the unit, the Mighty is the way to go.

While both are fairly expensive as far as portables are concerned, the Mighty is the pricier of the two. We recommend that you check out the Mighty vaporizer online at this store and the Crafty from this recommended dealer.
