The Crafty Vaporizer is the little brother vape of the Mighty Vaporizer. It’s one of the best selling cannabis vaporizers on the market and we’re going to take a look at the features and how it stacks up to other vaporizers.
Size of the Crafty Vaporizer
The Crafty Vaporizer is about the size of a pack of cigarettes. It’s significantly larger than the marijuana pen-style vaporizers, but it’s still very portable and small enough to fit into your palm. It’s perhaps a little too big to fit into a tight pocket.
Battery Life and Charge
There’s an internal rechargeable battery which takes about an hour and a half to recharge when it is fully dead. You can get about 45 minutes of use from a fully charged Crafty. This isn’t as great as some others out there that provide up to 90 minutes of use. The one good feature is that you can plug in the Crafty Vaporizer and use it while it’s charging. But you do need to have around 15-20% battery to do this.
The charger itself is a micro USB which is the same charger that most Android phones use and they’re relatively cheap and easy to come by. You can even buy car adapters for it.
A great feature that a lot of portable vaporizers have is an automatic shutoff feature for safety. A small issue with the Crafty is that it turns off after about one minute of non use. However, you can avoid this by simply hitting one of the buttons during your vape session. Hitting the button will restart the internal clock to another minute so that you don’t lose power. In the event that it does turn off, you just have to press the power button in and it only takes a few seconds to heat back up.
The herb chamber has a capacity of about .3. A great thing about it is that you don’t have to be too precise with grinding your herb extremely fine. There is a grinder included in the vape package, which is a convenience. To fill the herb chamber, you simply use the enclosed filling tool the helps you pack the herb pretty perfectly each time you use it.
This is one of the only herbal vaporizers with a vibrating function. This comes in handy so that you know the device is turned on. Also, you know if it turns off. If for some reason you don’t press one of the buttons in time for the vaporizer to time out and shut off for non use, it will vibrate, so you aren’t having to check the lights over and over to see if it’s off.
Heat Up Time:
From the time you turn on the Crafty Vaporizer to the time it reaches the default or normal temperature (356° F) is about 90 seconds. There is also a boost mode which heats to 383° F. You can control this temperature via an app for your Smartphone.
Draw Time or Vapor Intensity
The Crafty Vaporizer does require you to take about a 7 to 10 second draw or hit from it to get a decent amount of vapor. In testing, a 5 second draw only produced a light vapor.
Surprisingly, this vaporizer is easily disassembled for cleaning. The mouth piece snaps right off, and you can clean the rings inside fairly quickly.
The Crafty Vaporizer will cost you about $399.
Overall, the Crafty Vaporizer is a great portable vaporizer. While it’s not as small as a weed vaporizer pen, nor does it have nearly as long of a battery life as others, it’s a solid device. It also does very well with dry herb which is very hard to come by.
