    I just received mine in the mail on Tuesday. After a few days with it, what took me so long!!?? The battery isn’t the greatest but IMO it does its job more efficiently than my other Vapes. Only wish I would have purchased one sooner. :leaf:

    A while back, in this thread, someone posted a source (in the US), for replacement screens and O rings. It was some kind of industrial supply company. The prices were much lower than the official replacements found in vape shops or from S&B.

    Just wondering if anyone has ever found a similar supplier in Canada. I want to get some of the fine screens. Vape shops sell a Crafty/Mighty screen pack, but you only get 6 screens, and only two of those are the fine screens. These packs cost $6-$10CDN, plus shipping. Way too much!!!

    Anyway, if anyone knows of a Canadian online vendor (or one that ships to Canada for a reasonable rate) for the fine screens, can you please let me know?

    If you picked up a sheet of stainless fine mesh you could try cutting a near circle with scissors or you could look for some type of punch to cut them.

    Also try an ebay search for 15mm stainless fine screen?

    Or this is the same fine 6 pack under a different title in PlanetVape Canada, volcano/plenty reduced chamber uses them:

    When you divide up two packs plus post, they're not that much each seeing as how you could make them last if cleaned properly.
    But maybe someone from Canada has found a better price?

    Have they changed box design for the new, better battery, version of Crafty? Is not it supposed to be white and blue with orange line as opposed to blue and orange? In general how does one tell new version from the original one? thank you

    Yep, the new one is the blue/white packaging. There’s no sticker anymore saying 20% extra.
    Other than that, I think you needed to check the firmware or manufacturing date - or the serial - with Storz n Bickel. They respond quickly.

    Hope this helps

    Glad I could help! :)

    I think it's V2.51 featuring all this:
    • Compatible with Apple Watch • Turn on your CRAFTY via App • "Find my CRAFTY" function • Extend the auto-shutoff time up to 5 minutes • Auto-shutoff countdown • Save previously connected serial numbers • User defined alarm tones

    Just checked mine, purchased six weeks ago. Firmware is v2.53. Why don't I see any "Turn on your CRAFTY via App?" Am I looking in the wrong place?

    PS: I've been vaping for about four years now. Owned MFLB to CFX and CF to FF2 to this. I have had more fun with my Crafty, like a kid in a candy store. The dosing caps are a fantastic addition, making loading and unloading far far neater, cleaner and faster. I've been hooking it up via the mouthpiece(I do have the direct attaching water pipe adapter too) to a bubbler and loving it. Yes, much slower to heat up than the FF2 or even the CFX, but so much more consistent in giving good hits. Worth the wait.

    Thanks. I see it and it works--if the C is already connected.

    So has reliability been improved with the crafty I'm on V02.53 with 65hours on it, just wondering what to expect because a couple of past crafties craped out around this time. Longest one I had was 120 hours, and the worse performing was 48 hours. I actually wanted to record smashing my crafty with a hammer, when the warranty is out, because of all the pain of warranty repair, and put it up on youtube, but I'm glad I didn't because I got the discount for the second one. lol

    Draw tightened this session, I should clean the CU more often. About half a gram of dank crafty reclaim :love:

    How did you get the CU open? Did you have to heat it?

    When it is still hot, leave it on Crafty and slide The hologram forward. Then hold from sides and pull up. You may need to rock it a little from side to side, but it should come off pretty easily.

    Also If it’s off the crafty
    - You can push down on the button in the middle (Just in front of the hologram) to push the two halves apart

    I pop it off after a session, everything is nice and warm but be careful! I almost got that beautiful oil on my shirt as I wasn't expecting that :o

    Is bubbler good for Crafty?

    Crafty app is acting really weird. The little Bluetooth connection whirly just keeps whirling without confirming the connection. And the screen is dimmed. But when I turn the Crafty on, I can watch the temps going up on the app. And when I plug it in, I can see the changing bars flashing and filling. And I'm still able to go into boost mode and see temps rising in dimmed app. But the adjustment buttons are not responsive and neither are the icons on the bottom to go into other screens. Stuck. This is on my ipad mini, if that makes a difference. Thanks for any help.

    Have you tried deleting the app and downloading the latest version? :shrug:

    So we can turn on the Crafty with the app now, that’s a great update that actually makes the app worthwhile now.
    I would never have noticed if it wasn’t for @vapen00b so cheers for that.
    Of course you have to leave Bluetooth on to make this useful.
    Does anyone have any experience with that?
    Does Bluetooth permanently on have a noticeable effect on the battery?
    If I leave it on for a couple of days & don’t use it am I likely to see any significant battery drain?
    I’m gonna have a try so I’ll find out over the next few days anyway.

    (Quick aside
    Thanks for your reply to my very first FC comment (2 years ago)
    it was about a counterfeit firefly - it was deleted by the mods the next day
    So I didn’t get a chance to give you a response - lol)

    ..to answer your question - yes
    I find there is a noticeable effect

    my 3rd and final RMA crafty has been losing its charge
    was getting worried because I thought it might be the battery dying early
    - But I do exactly that..
    I have the permanent Bluetooth on and maybe don’t use it for a couple of days after charging
    Then I’m wondering why the first bar drops so quickly
    ..I guess that must be the cause

    I’ve found that if I’m not already using the phone (eg just walking)
    unlocking phone and bringing up app on screen to switch it on is more laborious than just pulling out the crafty and switching it on

    I also quite often have problems connecting with the Bluetooth
    Even though it’s set to permanently on

    But it is useful sometimes

    I'm not sure if others have noticed, but Bluetooth on the Crafty is always active when it's plugged in to charge. This is with the always on setting turned off.
