The German brand Storz & Bickel has a reputation for quality, and their new Crafty+ certainly fits the bill. An updated version of the original Crafty vaporizer, this one features an improved heating time and a more rugged housing—making the Crafty+ an undeniable upgrade over its predecessor.
The Crafty+ also boasts a longer battery life and more sophisticated electronic circuitry, which takes this vaporizer to the next level in terms of performance. It’s not the cheapest vape you’ll find on the market, but all the new improvements make it well worth the price for the experienced vaper.
Like all Storz & Bickel vapes, the Crafty+ blends classic German engineering with the latest in high-tech features. Here are just a few of the reasons people love this particular device:
The Crafty+ fits snugly in your hand, with a ribbed plastic shell that makes it easy to grip (and hard to drop). It’s got inner beauty, too—the expansive airflow passage and generous bowl make it a vaper’s dream.
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.
Nobody likes a piping hot rush of vapor to the face—which is why the Crafty+ comes with a unique Cooling Unit. Made from medical-grade plastic used in surgical implants, it cools every hit before it reaches your lips for an extra-smooth hit.
Out of battery and still feel like vaping? No worries! The Crafty+ can still be used when plugged into its USB charger, so you never have to sit around waiting for your next session.
The Crafty+ is a beginner-friendly device, and it also offers a number of interesting features and ‘weird vaping tricks.’ Here’s what you should know:
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 you’re ready to hit the power button, and 60 seconds later, it’s vaping time.
The Crafty+ comes with a Bluetooth-enabled app for Android smartphones that allows you choose one of the 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.
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 keeps concentrates from causing a mess, which is a nice touch.
Few things feel better than finding the vape that perfectly fits your needs. The Crafty+ might be the one for you if:
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.
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.
The Crafty+ offers over an hour of continuous run time, so you don’t have to worry about running out of juice in the middle of the day.
If you’re familiar with the original Crafty, you’ll have an idea of what to expect from the Crafty+. That being said, there are some new tweaks that are worth mentioning:
This device can be used with both dry herb and concentrates like wax. It comes with a special “drip pad” to make vaping extracts a breeze.
Yes, it is. The robust housing of the Crafty+ means that it’s not the most pocket-friendly vape on the market (unless your pockets are quite large), but this battery-powered vape is still small enough to be used outside of the house.
Absolutely. In fact, this is one of the biggest differences between the Crafty+ and the original. It now comes with three pre-set temperature levels, and you can customize your vape even more by using the free app.
You can get around 1 hour of continuous operating time with a full charge on your Crafty+ vaporizer, which is enough for about 5-6 bowls. The device can be recharged using its USB cable, which takes around 70 minutes.

The Crafty+ is a premium product with a price tag to match. It’s worth the money, though: you’ll be hard-pressed to find a battery powered vape that packs as much of a punch as this baby. And while it’s a bit of an initial investment, Storz & Bickel have a sterling reputation for a reason (and the extended warranty certainly doesn’t hurt, either).
