The original Storz & Bickel Crafty Plus was something 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 tough as it comes. PEEK plastic is renowned for its robustness. It is a high performance engineering plastic with outstanding resistance, and it has the ability to maintain stiffness at high temperatures. Making suitable for continuous use at temperatures up to 410°F (210°C).

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 hybrid heating system, which uses both convection heating and conduction heating elements. Not only is this faster, it also heats your herb or concentrate more evenly, so you don't waste a single bit. SO it's portable and 'herbally economic'.
Temperature Settings improved
There are 3 TEMPERATURES to choose from to control vapor production:
The Default temperature settings which sits at 180 degrees.
Boost mode: You can Double-click for boost mode to raise the temperature again.
Super boost mode: Simply do a triple click to get to the device's max capability which is 210 degrees.

New USB-C charger
The initial Crafty plus lacked the USB-C touch. This was something people were crying out for when the previous model was released. Now it has one and features 25 minute faster USB-C charging time. This is a 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 technology now you can get a good 5-9 sessions per charge depending on your activity. The charge time has also been reduced down to approximately 1.5 hours, which is a solid improvement.
