Storz & Bickel Mighty+ Vaporizer

The Mighty+ vaporizer by Storz and Bickel is a powerful portable with digital controls that vapes dry herb, concentrates, and oils. In this Mighty Plus review we pull no punches, revealing what we don’t like about this mighty vape as well as what we do. Is the Mighty+ by Storz & Bickel worthy of its title as the powerhouse of portable vapes?

Updated features of the Mighty+ include:

  • ceramic-coated chamber
  • faster USB-C charging
  • 45 watts – heats up in 60 seconds vs 90
  • new heat sink fin design
  • Second level SuperBoost on top of Boost mode
  • UL and TUV certification – first portable to be certified for medical use

Size Matters (or does it?)

Kicking off with the one thing about the Mighty+ we don’t like – we’re not a huge fan of its size. Compared to other modern portables it’s about a half-skosh too large. Now, don’t get us wrong, it’s not THAT large, but let’s just say your gf won’t be able to pocket this one in a pair of skinny jeans.

Now, with that out of the way, we can move on to say the new and improved Mighty+ ticks every other box, especially in terms of vapor quality and quantity. In that respect (and what other is there, really?), it’s nothing less than awesome. So if you already know the Mighty merits your money, then we recommend checking out the promo link below where you will receive the best price, free delivery, excellent service, and a 100% satisfaction guaranty.

Mighty as an Erupting Volcano?

Now, on to our review. For those already familiar with the Volcano (review) by Storz & Bickel, it will come as no surprise that their beastly portable, the Mighty+, lives up to its name. We remain as impressed as ever. Compared to other portables we’ve tested, Mighty+ vapor production is unmatched, producing some of the densest most flavorful clouds extant. You would have to step up to the Volcano or S&B’s Plenty (review) to find a more prolific cloud machine.

Can we overstate our respect for the vapor production of this device? Doubtful. To drive home the point, we’ve performed a direct comparison of the Mighty vs Volcano which you can read here.

Precision Temperature Control

Controlling the temperature of a portable is sometimes a bit tricky. With the Mighty+ you just punch in the desired temp on the digital display and sally forth. Set the default temperature anywhere between 104 – 410°F (40 – 210°C) and add Boost or SuperBoost when you want to extract every remaining molecule of vapor at the end of your session, or when you just want to hit her hard in midstream.

Convection and Conduction

Patented hybrid heating technology allows the Mighty vape to function simultaneously as both a convection and conduction vaporizer. This feature is why the Mighty+ can produce full-on thunderhead clouds right out of the gate. Experienced vaping enthusiasts know this is not usually the case, as most portables produce fairly thin wisps on the first draw. Not until the second or possibly third draw does the average portable produce a full head of steam. Not so with the Mighty+ or its little brother the Crafty+ (review) as both utilize nearly identical heating mechanisms.

With the Mighty+ and Crafty+ the first draw is full flavored and full bore. The following video masterfully illustrates the internal heating mechanics which produce this feat for the Mighty+.

The Oven Chamber

Whether you call it the heating chamber or filling chamber, the place where you pack the payload is really an oven. S&B has upgraded the previous aluminum oven with a ceramic coating claimed to enhance performance. We cannot verify how much performance enhancement is due to the ceramic coating, but we can attest to it being easier to clean and less prone toward staining.

It takes about one minute to warm up the oven which holds between 0.25 and 0.3 grams of dry herb depending on the grind. You’ll find that a fully loaded chamber will produce up to a dozen lungsful. Yep, that’s a word. Didn’t make it up.

Dry Blends and Dabs

If you like to occasionally switch things up between dry blends, dabs, or oils, no problem.  The Mighty+ has got you covered with its dosing capsules and complementary liquipads which fit nicely inside the capsules. Both accessories come with the unit, but if you get caught out and about without, do not despair. Simply sandwich a dab or drop between two thin layers of herb for an exquisite effect.

Battery Life and Plug-in Power

Once again, the Mighty+ lives up to its name in terms of power supplied to run this impressive device. It runs on two 18650 lithium-ion batteries rated at 4600 mAh that support up to 90 minutes of continual use. Depending on your style, you can get from eight to ten sessions per charge – about double the performance of the otherwise nearly identical Crafty+ which has just one battery.

Unfortunately, larger storage capacity requires more charge time so it takes up to 3 hours to fully charge using standard charging. However, with the S&B Supercharger you can fill her up to 80% in forty minutes. Check out the Supercharger here along with other Mighty vape accessories.

Unlike the Crafty, when the Mighty’s batteries are fully drained you can plug her in and vape immediately using pass-through power, but only when charging through the Supercharger. The Mighty+ also provides more in-home flexibility with a six-foot power cord as standard vs. 2.5 feet for the Crafty+. S&B portables are not engineered with replaceable batteries but should you ever encounter a problem the manufacturer will arrange replacement either under warranty or for a reasonable charge depending on the circumstances.

Mighty Plus Kit

UL Certified

Storz & Bickel labs is the market leader in research and testing of its vaporizers. The Mighty+ is the first portable dry herb vaporizer to be certified for medical use and to earn certification from Underwriters Laboratories. No other dry herb vaporizer has achieved this certification. UL inspected the materials, build quality, electrical components, battery, charging process, and heating systems and the Mighty+ earned their stamp of approval.

Warranty Information

The Mighty+ comes with a three-year warranty after registration, which is a testament to its durability. The warranty covers defects in materials and/or workmanship that may arise during the warranty period. If your unit fails due to a defect within this period it will be repaired or replaced free of charge.

Mighty Plus Review Summary

In our opinion, the Mighty+ is still the best portable vaporizer on the market. Its only drawback is a slightly oversized form factor, which is necessary to support its large power supply. Having said that, on all measures of performance the Mighty vape (now in the improved Mighty Plus iteration) remains the best vape you can buy in the portable category.
