    Hey vapviking, how should the smell come from the electronics? there is a "whats inside the crafty" vid where someone takes it apart and the heater does not seem to be near the electronics... what do you think about it? my battery life is also not very good (5-6 x 5-8 min sessions). maybe its best for me to send it in????

    I was only suggesting caution and not speculating on the smell's nature. So, as you had said it didn't smell like plastic and maybe something had fallen through, I suggested further burn off.
    If, for instance, there were some electrical short circuit on or near the circuit board then there could be an 'electronic' type smell. But again, I'm not saying this is the case for you.

    Battery life is another issue. That sounds like less than optimal performance, from my experience. In US, I believe I would have to pay for battery service (they are not warranted for wear) but I believe in Germany you have better options.

    A few months ago S&B added cleaning as a service, for some fee. So, if you are really concerned about the smell, maybe you could open the conversation about battery service first and then get some discount or consideration on the cleaning fee, as they would already be opening the unit anyway.

    Hello everyone, I just thought I should finally get round to joining and contributing to this really nice forum.
    I stop smoking a couple of years ago after trying a solo and then finally getting a flowermate as my first vap. It took a bit of getting used to after my pure pipe, but i really got into vaping and got then the fm pro. When my first flowermate died it was pretty easy to get the Crafty and was really impressed with the vapour but the heat up time and batteries was pretty shitty.
    When this crafty died and i had to go back to my FM pro for a week whilst the new crafty came I decided I needed a better back up vap for the Crafty. I choose the Mighty obviously. Now I use the Mighty and the missus uses the Crafty. I never bother grinding my weed just crumble it in, works fine.

    One thing I would add to the glass mouthpiece debate is get one or two. They are great (imo). Someone had a bit of a problem with them being a bit loose. I had this problem as well for a few months when I was using the Crafty and eventually realised the silicon ring wasn´t sat in place proper so the glass didn´t fit quite right. When it sits in the CU proper I can hold my Mighty by the mouthpiece even at 210.
    I´m the type who never drinks out of a plastic cup so when I was first getting a vap the plasticness and price of the Crafty put me off. When I saw the replacement mp was available it was one reason to get the Crafty. I´ve never used the Mighty with the plastic mouthpiece. The vapour is nicer and cooler through the glass and you can see if the CU is getting dirty by how clean the glass is.

    I really liked my Crafty but hated the charging/battery life.
    I just really like my Mighty.

    Hi! my easy flow glass mouthpiece arrived today!! i have had two sessions with it so far and I love it, it fits perfectly just turn the silicone piece upside down if yours is not fitting properly. Also i use the fine screen in the CU, at the time i have very dry herb and i dont mind the extra restriction in the draw. I LOVE THIS MACHINE!

    I wouldn't send it in unless the unit fails again.

    Sorry mods I forgot protocall about successive posts. Can you combine please?

    I also use that method to vaporize 7-8 mg in a session. Also I can load double and split into two sessions. It gives excellent vapor, extracts all the goods, gets me medicated well, and keeps the Crafty very clean with minimal efforts and good habits. There is very little reclaim.

    I have extra concentrate pads and swap them often. I soak them in 99% ISO and rinse in hot water.

    Damn! I just now realized that I should try and vape (before cleaning) one of the concentrate pads at the Crafty's highest temp. If it works nothing could be more efficient.

    i had the same experience; never a response from them. But then it just arrived, and I was happy! This was ordered December 24th, took about 3 1/2 weeks to arrive. I ordered two more on Jan 28th and am still waiting. I didn't know their site was down.

    so don't mention batteries at all (you WILL be hit with a fee)...but you can definitely use some of the worst practices around here to figure out how to break those 4 posts holding the body together in an 'un-intentional' looking fashion.

    err004 (was a problem only in older models) would be caused by the heater not keeping up with the draw and give and err message, that problem would also come and go...if you ever had that problem, that would warrant a replacement (alongside some faulty old housing) :ninja:

    your welcome :peace:

    (only mention these issues if you've had them :cool:, as doing otherwise would be 'dishonest' :myday:)

    *i was pretty brutal on my first mighty and it only lived to see three months...i think i'm on two or three! hats off to two years :whoa:

    Subject: WG: Storz-Bickel - Mighty Vaporizer

    Dear Eric,

    thank you for your interest in our products and pardon the delayed answer.

    „1) In reading online reviews, I hear that there have been some defects in the Mighty and Crafty units. Is this an ongoing problem?”

    The CRAFTY and the MIGHTY have been both continuously improved since their first release. Further, we have been accommodating with malfunctions and resolved the issues to the pleasure of our customers. We are confident that you will be satisfied with either choice.

    “2) Have you made changes / revisions to the Mighty since it was originally released?”

    As mentioned above, we continuously improve our devices, there have been changes, but none of them effect the overall functionality.

    „3) How can I tell, when purchasing from a local reseller, or an online reseller, whether I am getting a unit with the latest revisions, or whether I am receiving an older unit? Is there a revision number on the box or the unit? Can I tell from the serial number whether I am getting a unit with the most recent revisions?“

    We do not work with authorized dealers and regret to say that we can’t answer your question. If you would like to make sure that you receive a genuine product and the latest model, we recommend to purchase directly with us in our online shop.

    “4) If / when the batteries stop holding a charge, or degrade to the point that they need replacement, how much do you charge to replace them, assuming this occur outside of the warranty period?”

    Of course we only use the best cells available on the market and most of the devices processing power is used only for battery management, however, we cannot go beyond physical limits.
    Defects due to normal use or wear are not covered by the warranty. Parts subject to wear such as batteries, screens and similar are excluded from the warranty.
    Batteries will be replaced by Storz & Bickel. The exchange is €75,00 for the CRAFTY / € 105,00 for the MIGHTY.

    „5) Do you have a flat fee for repair or replacement of a unit that stops working after the warranty period, and if so, how much is the fee? If you don't have a flat fee, what might be the range of costs to repair a unit?“

    We would need to inspect your unit first in order to determine the costs for a repair, many factors have to be considered here.

    “6) If a unit replacement during the warranty period, will you replace it with a new unit, or a refurbished unit?”

    Our replacements are never refurbished units. We replace by new, unused units.

    “7) Will you honour the warranty regardless of which local store or online reseller I purchase from?”

    If the device is an original Storz & Bickel Vaporizer, the warranty will be valid regardless of where you purchased it from. Please keep the invoice as a proof of purchase for warranty purposes.


    “8) Will my credit card receipt be acceptable proof of purchase date, if unit should ever need warranty service?”

    Please keep the invoice as a proof of purchase for warranty purposes. Credit card receipt will not be acceptable as a proof of purchase.

    We hope this information is of assistance to you!

    Kind regards,

    Verkauf / Sales

    Those Germans, very precise as usual :).

    Thx for that information, was worried about my quite cheap purchase from a reseller and if my unit was fully covered by the warranty.

    That's Euro's they're talking. I think in US the fee is more like $90 for Mighty batteries. It does sound expensive, but on the other hand, we rarely if ever hear of a Mighty needing this service. They've been on the market for over two years now. Mine is just approaching its 2nd birthday and going strong. If somewhere around 3 years I have to spend a hundred bucks, I will gladly do so.
    I had one Crafty that required a $50(US) battery at 4 months old.

    The world's more advanced countries protect the consumer better that US laws do re: battery warranty/replacement, trumping the S&B 'policy'.

    but 100€ for 2 x 18650 Batteries??? this is pricey af. for 350€ there should be a 10 year warranty (including batteries, like pax) or at least replaceable batteries. I mean I love german engineering but S&B products are overpriced.

    *The price is for both batteries (in Mighty) and their installation and shipping to you. And then it's just about as likely they'd send a new unit. That's what I got when I paid merely for new batteries in a Crafty. (summer '15)

    *Edit, sorry I mis-read your post and believed you were thinking batteries were 350, my bad.

    After warranty is up, brush up on skills and diy if you like!
    Unfortunately most German products are over priced, and service follows suit. This is my US perspective because we have such great and plentiful inexpensive wonderfully engineered Asian products available these days. (ahem....)
    I have zero regrets having bought a Mighty, and love it; it works fucking great!
    S&B has given me rock solid service. Hard to get them to answer the phone, but at least they have one! unlike some younger upstarts out there (hello, HL?).
