    I put mine in the dishwasher and it's almost cleaned when I get it out. Then I do very quick cleaning session with alcohol and it's like it's new.
    Don't forget to use the liquid pad though, it helps a lot. But form my personal experience, it tends to make the Crafty much hotter while in use, and mine is often turned off because of overheating with the pad, so you may have some tries and see yourself.

    Plug it on a charger - blue light.
    Push the button to use it - flashing blue light.

    So, its charged, but then when you want to use it, its starts flashing the blue light like it needs charging?!

    It goes like that, back and forth.

    Has anyone experienced sth like this? :(

    Does it heat up? or is just a light thing? do reset settings on the app to see if helps, if not RMA S&B and add some $$$ and get a Mighty lol
    Cheers

    My crafty made something like that yesterday ... It blinked green as soon as I turned it on. Very strange ... he had never done this before.
    So...
    As it was already heating up a lot in the bottom, I decided to change the original battery (141hrs) for a sony vt6 as it has been spoken here.
    For now we are on the first battery charge. 1m36s to 180º. It was taking 2m45s ...

    @karec! I also have a mighty ... but my # 1 is the CRAFTY

    [​IMG] I tried reseting the settings but no improvement.

    This is how it looks in the app.

    So the battery is "fully charged" but when I want to turn it on it blinks blue light.

    Heartbroken.....this agony will now take weeks..... :(

    Any other miracle ideas?

    Instead of resetting settings from the app, you can reset the actual device by holding the button down for ten seconds and then leaving it off for 5 minutes. Worth a try.

    First uninstall the app, then do what Polarbearboy says:

    Hi everyone, sorry if this is off topic but I didn't found a general topics area here and sorry about my english who is not my language. I'm new in portable vapes here in Europe and it's been one week I'm reading reviews around or here in the forum and I'm not able to make a choice because of this:
    This Crafty seems to fit on me as I'm a big vapor chaser and I want in my pocket. I want to save weed so a convection vape or hybrid and not condution should be the choice. What I'm noticing is there is not a really good vape that rocks yet. Da vinci looks good but are not big clouds and taste as Crafy. Convection vapes should be the future but they don't have a removal battery such as Utillian, Crafty,Mighty. Or they are not realiable as Pax or Arizer. I want Crafty as my vape but if changing battery is a mess and they are not realiable as Ghost Mv1, Crafty etc.it's tough to spend youjr money in that.
    I want a convection vapor which make big clouds, be in my pocket,remove change the battery when I want, and reliable such as pax or at leat such as Davinci, but it doesn't exist this vape. I have the impression as if Im just started looking at in a hole period where is no portable vape crushing around with those simply skills: small,big clouds and proper reliability

    If you can handle the size then the mighty covers big clods and reliable. Once you get used to it it's not that big. And if you can kill a full battery in a day then you need to cut back on your consumption!

    I would second the Mighty, the Crafty is great, but if used heavily, reliability can be questionable.

    I’d also recommend you look into the Fury 2

    Thanks for your answer, actually you are right with Mighty is not as big as I thought when I checked in a video. However this stuff about removal batteries, I feel as if I'm tied to the costumer service because I have to change batteries every year and pay let's say 80€ by battery / assembly.It is not fair!
    I had a look the Fury 2, as I heard a new version is coming but it is the same problem with internal batteries

    The new version, the Fierce, will have batteries you can swap out yourself.

    Mighty batteries can be changed with a bit of know how and if you look after it you should easily get 2+ years before needing to do the change.

    Also its very mighty!

    @Madrid

    Can I ask ..does it need to be battery powered?

    For a (cheaper) alternative..

    Stickybricks are heated with butane lighter
    Use convection and theyre cloud machines
    but it’s worked by hand..

    If you want to be able to just switch your vape on
    Wait a short time then draw sweet clouds
    The mighty is a beast

    Someone sells battery kits for no solder replacement
    Or you can do your own refurbish
    (see very recent mighty thread for lots of pics)
    And the original batteries last well anyway
    So maybe that would make it less of a problem

    Good, thank for that info, I will be watching the come out...
    Thanks for your feedback as I see you have one mighty, anyway "with bit of know" sounds relative. I'm not a handyman. I pay 300€ and then after two years I break it when I tryy to change them. I won't feel myself confortable thinking oof that issue

    Thanks!!

    Tried a new delivery service last week and they had little plastic syringes filled with RSO oil. I'd never had more than a drop or two of oil before. So I pulled out the concentrate dosing caps that I got with my Crafty last fall, but never used. At first the draws were whispier than I like so I cranked up the temp all the way. Big lush hits and a big head within two minutes. I've now got six other vapes--CF, Fury2, Firefly 2, APX, Starry, and Vapcaps. The Firefly 2 and the Fury 2 both heat up much faster, but the strength of the hits from the Crafty are only exceeded--and that rarely--by the VapCap. And the Crafty just gives these big hits so damn reliably.

    If you use organic cotton or hemp fiber with concentrates you'll get much bigger hits than with the steel pad.

    I'm pretty sure your not supposed to vape RSO. Get some shatter of you want to vape concentrates.

    Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but can the little vibration motor of the crafty be bought seperately? And if so, what's the name of the part?

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    I am trying to change a battery on a Crafty. I replaced the original battery with another NCR18650PF. I connected the charger to it and it started charging. I could connect with the app and would see the battery bar increasing slowly as it charges. So far so good.

    When it was done charging, I tried to vape a bowl with it. It went to 180 °C and I could take a couple of hits. Then all of a sudden it would shut off. When I tried to turn it on again it had a blue light flashing and turned off again. When I tried to connect the charger it would blink up in blue, green, red (not sure of the order).

    After like 10 minutes, when the unit was cooled down again, I tried turning it on and it switched to red light, indicating that it is heating up. The app confirmed it.

    What I suspect is the temperature sensor on the battery. I have attached a picture, so someone familiar with a battery change might see if the temperature sensor is somehow attached in the wrong place.

    Any help is appreciated!

    it looks ok. but could you put the sensor away from the heater on the other side? just in case....
    also, it is possible your battery has a lower amp rating than the stock battery, and heats up quicker/more.

    I too changed my batteries today on my mighty. Sony Konion US18650VTC6, 3120mAh, 30A max continuous. suppose to be better than stock,
    will see.... :leaf:

    Does this squeezed cable look like it could cause a higher resistance and thus depleting the battery rapidly? I believe it's the cable going to the heater stick.

    that gray cable is the heaters temp sensor. yes, this cable could trigger a fault in the crafty. (if a lot of the actual wires inside are broken) just connect everything don't close it yet, and start it too check if the overheating sensors are the culprit, and squeeze that cable with your fingers. if nothing helps put back the old battery and check if it works. i still think the replacement is not in spec.
