Crafty Vaporizer - Storz & Bickel
This is the older version of the Crafty Plus Vaporizer
Meet the Crafty Vaporizer
The Crafty vaporizer from famed German manufacturer Storz & Bickel is like the golden retriever of vaporizers - solid, dependable, and with you for the long haul. Its rugged plastic case and adjustable temperature settings set the standard for other vapes on the market, and it’s easy to see why the Crafty has had a place in vapers’ hearts for many years.
While its Storz & Bickel siblings - the Mighty and Crafty+ - tend to get most of the buzz these days, the Crafty itself is a great affordable vape with many advanced features you’d expect to see in a more expensive model. For such a well-made piece of gear, the price is definitely right.
5 Big Questions About the Crafty Vape
Want to get an idea of what the older Crafty has to offer? Here’s a quick rundown:
1. What can you vape with the Crafty?
This is a dual use vaporizer, so you can use it with both dry herb and concentrates like wax. It comes with dosing capsules that make it easy to vape whatever material you prefer.
2. Is it portable?
Yes. The battery powered Crafty isn’t the slimmest portable vaporizer you’ll find, but it’s a good deal smaller than the Mighty (or even the Crafty+). You won’t mistake it for a vape pen, but you also don’t need a backpack to haul it around.
3. Can you adjust the temperature?
The Crafty offers the best of both worlds when it comes to selecting temperatures. To switch between preset temperatures (or select a custom setting), you can either use the free smartphone app or the button control on the device itself.
4. How long does the battery last?
Your mileage may vary, but typically a full charge will yield about an hour’s worth of continuous use. This tends to last for between 4-5 sessions on average.
5. Does it have a warranty?
It wouldn’t be a Storz & Bickel vaporizer if it didn’t. Each Crafty comes with a 2-year warranty from the manufacturer, which covers faulty parts and workmanship flaws.
Using the Crafty Vape
One of the Crafty’s core appeals is its user-friendliness. Here’s a quick guide to getting the most out of your vaping experience:
1. How to Operate Your Crafty Vape
To load the Crafty, simply unscrew the top and place your dry herb or concentrate in the large oven. Then replace the top and flip up the mouthpiece. Press the power button on the bottom and wait for the vape to heat up (it’ll take around 2 minutes, so be patient). When the LED light on the bottom turns green, you’re ready to go.
2. How to Get the Best Vapour Quality
Depending on whether you want a nice, mellow session or one that seriously pushes the boundaries, the Crafty offers a number of preset temperatures. You can adjust them by using the free App—and if you’re in the mood for something a bit more potent, hitting the power button three times engages Boost Mode.
3. How to Clean It
Cleaning the Crafty is relatively easy, thanks to its stainless steel and ceramic heating chamber. You can use a little isopropyl alcohol and a few cotton swabs to wipe down the inside, and the vape even comes with a small cleaning brush for extra-stubborn residue.
How to Know If the Crafty Vape Is Right for You
The Crafty is a great all-around vaporizer, and it would make a solid addition to anyone’s vape kit. It’s especially attractive if:
- You want a vape that’s durable. If you’re the kind of person who’s prone to dropping your phone and other valued possessions, the Crafty is tough enough to survive living with you.
- You need premium performance at an affordable price. The customisable temperatures and Boost Mode feature are perks you normally find on a more expensive device.
- You value reliability… a lot. Storz & Bickel have earned a reputation as one of the top vape manufacturers in the world, and the Crafty is one of their signature devices. It’s not the flashiest, but it always gets the job done.
Crafty Vaporizer Key Features
The Crafty was made to be a vaper’s best friend, and as such, it’s full of useful little features:
The tough plastic shell of the Crafty means it can stand up to a lot of wear-and-tear, and the ribbed casing makes it hard to drop. On the inside, the high quality stainless steel and ceramic parts are both rugged and ‘bland’ in a good way—they won’t taint the taste of your vapour.
2. Boost Mode
Think of this like hitting the nitrous in a racing game. Tapping the Crafty’s power button three times will activate a supercharged blast of vapour that will leave the most experienced vaper nodding with appreciation.
When your battery runs out, don’t get down—the Crafty can also be used while plugged into its USB charger. As soon as it hits 20 percent, you can continue vaping like normal (albeit in a slightly more sedentary style).
This little implement might soon turn into one of your favourite things about the Crafty. You can use it to pack bowls or remove residue, and it also makes a great stir stick for your material during long sessions.

The Final Verdict on Crafty Ireland
The Crafty vaporizer is still one of the top all-around vapes you can get today. It’s not going to win any beauty contests, but it’s easy to clean and the subtle touches like a hybrid heating system and auto-shut off feature are typically found on much pricier vapes. This is like the Toyota Camry of vapes, and we mean that in the best way possible.
