The German giants, Storz & Bickel, strike again with an updated Crafty Plus Vaporizer. The New Crafty+ retains all the medical certifications that its predecessor had, but it comes with a few new tricks of its own. Keeping up with the tradition of Storz & Bickel vapes, the new Crafty+ still blends its classic German engineering with the latest advances in high-tech features.
You will find the usual elite standard in this new Crafty which comes from such a reliable world renowned company. It is certain to have big flavour, big clouds and nice big hits.
New Crafty + Design Improvements
So what are these changes? Here are some of the tweaks worth mentioning:
The original Crafty Plus was durable and high-level, and the new update is just as sturdy. Thanks to its super PEEK plastic body design, this dual vaporizer is one as tough as they come. PEEK plastic is renowned for its robustness. It is a high performance engineering plastic with outstanding resistance, and has the ability to maintain stiffness at high temperatures. Making it suitable for continuous use at temperatures up to 410°F (210°C).
With that being said, practically speaking, the new Crafty Plus is designed for durability. If Bear Gryllz was looking for a sturdy little vape to clip onto his belt in the rugged wilderness, the new crafty + wouldn't be a bad choice.
Ceramic Filling Chamber
The previous model had an aluminium bowl. This new model comes with a ceramic coating. It's supposed to help prevent staining and help the general airflow.
Hybrid Heating System
Storz & Bickel are renowned for their dual heating system which uses both convection and conduction elements. Not only is this faster, it also heats your herb or concentrate more evenly so you don’t waste a single bit. It's both portable and 'herbally economic'.
Temperature Settings improved
There are 3 temperatures to choose from:
Default temperature: Which sits at 180 degrees.
Boost mode: Double-click for boost mode to raise the temperature again.
Super boost mode: Simply triple click to get to the device's max capability which is 210 degrees.
If you want to explore more options with temperature and really tailor the New Crafty to your needs, you can download the app and connect your phone. This gives you total control and shows how high-tech and advanced the Crafty+ is.
Special Cooling Unit
Nobody likes a piping hot rush of vapour to the face—which is why the Crafty+ comes with a unique Cooling Unit built in. Made from medical-grade plastic used in surgical implants, it cools every hit before it reaches your lips for an extra-smooth delivery.
New USB-C charger
The initial Crafty plus lacked the USBC touch. This was something people were crying out for when the previous model was released. Now it has one, sporting a 25 minute faster charging time. This is a very nice addition that adds versatility to the portable experience.
Storz and Bickel also went ahead and managed to nearly double the battery life of this upgrade. Thanks to the new technology, you can now get a good 5-9 sessions per charge depending on your activity. The charge time has been reduced down to approximately 1.5 hours, which is a solid improvement.
Out of battery and still feel like vaping? No worries! With The Crafty Plus vape, you can still use it when it's plugged into its USB charger, so you never have to sit around waiting for your next session.
Using the Crafty+ Vape
The Crafty+ is a beginner-friendly device, offering a number of interesting features and ‘quirky vaping tricks.’ Here’s what you should know:
1. How to Operate Your Crafty+? When it’s time for a toke, flip up the mouthpiece on the top of the device. Then, unscrew the top and insert your dry herb or concentrate into the vaping chamber. Now that you’re ready, hit the power button, and 60 seconds later, it’s vaping time baby. Relax.
2. How to Get the Best Vapour Quality? The Crafty+ comes with a Bluetooth-enabled app for Android smartphones that allows you to choose either one of three pre-set temperature levels, or customize your desired temperature (if you’re an iPhone user, you can use the web app instead). For a truly powerful vape, hit the power button three times to unlock the Super Boost feature.
3. How to Clean It? The vaping chamber of the Crafty+ is made from stainless steel and ceramic, which makes it easy to clean with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab. The drip pad (not included) keeps concentrates from causing a mess, which is a nice touch.
How to Know If the Crafty+ Is Right for You
Few things feel better than finding a vape that perfectly fit your needs. The Crafty+ might be the one for you if:
1. You want a vape that’s durable: Not only is this portable, it's durable too. As mentioned above, the rugged plastic shell of the Crafty+ makes it highly resistant to drops and other forms of wear and tear. Flipping down the mouthpiece adds an extra sense of security.
2. You appreciate a smooth, even vape: In addition to the trademark Storz & Bickel dual heating system, the Crafty+ also comes with a special cooling feature, so every hit is easy on the lungs and tastes damn good.
3. You need a long-lasting battery: With this major update, the Crafty+ offers over 90min of continuous run time so you don’t have to worry about running out of juice in the middle of the day. And you can still use it during charging if needed.
4. You want a peaceful session: The new Crafty Plus 2022 remains extremely user-friendly, is simple to use and is ideal for sharing. It functions with one-button operation, is easy to load and has a convenient dosing Capsule system for dry herbs making it super easy to draw from. This vape puts out top-notch performance each and every time without complications.
In a nutshell, Storz and Bickel say 'Don't sacrifice performance for portability - get both with the CRAFTY+'. This sums up exactly what they were aiming to achieve with the new Crafty + V2. The old version had shorter battery autonomy and was less adaptable for being out and about as it lacked the USBC charge.

Is the Crafty Plus V2 worth it?
It seems Storz & Bickel have taken customers' responses into consideration and realized that the Crafty + was in need of renovation for USBC use and better battery life - which is why the new and improved version is even better if you are on the go. Another big plus is that the updated model caters more to your specific needs with the option of personalized settings via the app.
Maybe you're thinking "There's hardly a difference." or wondering why go through the effort to make all the tweaks? Combined together, they ultimately make for a much better model. What strikes us is the attention to detail and constant growth and improvement of these finely engineered, medically approved designs. It’s the finer details that make the huge differences when it comes to advanced technology and elite performance. Or as the author James Clear put it in his book, Atomic Habits, “Tiny changes make remarkable results."
When it comes to vape quality, durability and all-round performance you can't go wrong with Storz and Bickel. The first Crafty Plus was a great portable vaporizer and the new Crafty Plus 2022 is just that much better. It's far handier for people on the go, walking, camping or socializing. Having more settings options gives you more control and better battery life makes everything easier. It's the way forward.
