    You won’t be disappointed! Buy a water piece adapter from 3-D studios, some dosing capsules from S/B, and a glass bubbler or bong from DHgate and strap in your seatbelt. Water peice adapter $25, dosing capsules $12, DH gate bong or bubbler $20-$40 depending on what you want. Enjoy it with the regular mouthpiece and then step it up with the water piece adapter . It’s like two weeks in one with two totally different experiences. I liked 360° With the regular mouthpiece and 390° with the WPA This is a very versatile piece of equipment!

    When I first got it, the big hits were overwhelming, so take it easy on the size of your draws.

    Also I recommend using capsules always. They don't cost much ($1 each at my herb store), I have 5. This way you don't need to brush your bowl clean of debris after every use, makes huge difference over time to keep that bowl clean.

    In the long run keeps the device very clean also. I can indeed also highly recommend the dosing capsules.

    And yeah, get your glass from DHGate. So, so much cheaper.

    Here’s some more


    Capsules are so easy
    ...but if you don’t need the convenience/mind the extra cleaning- I’d also try bowl alone
    I stand Mighty upright for filling in any big roll of tape
    I use it both with and without capsules


    There’s lots of stuff you might find interesting in this forum (not just this thread)- it’s worth looking around



    And this one might be important at some point

    ..less so with the mighty..

    Don’t forget to have a back-up vape

    How can you have a proper backup vape when you got the Mighty?

    I feel like only a butane vape or pure convection vape is an upgrade/alternative. Maybe better get a 2nd Mighty haha

    I was worried about this...because if I am going to fuck combustion, I want to fuck it hard (personal preference here), and so ordered a couple of other vapes. I quit cigs about 7 years ago with eliquid and have some equipment there...not sure how well some of it crosses over but I did buy some adapters and whatnot as well just in case. I'll leave the discussion of the other vapes for another thread.

    Thanks for the tips though I do appreciate the feedback! I'm refreshing fedex like every 2 minutes :/ And combustion just happens to be fucking me right now GRR

    This device excites me so much! I really like the medical grade stuff .. I don't have any medical issues right now, thank God, but I am a little sensitive to 'plastic-y' smells. I recently bought one of those Purple pillows to try it out and nearly lost my lunch when I smelled it. :ko:

    Mighty has slight plastic taste when new, but don't worry, it goes away very quickly.

    @juxt

    When it arrives I think you might have to fully charge it before you use it for the first time


    You picked a good vape

    Good luck on your continuing combustion-fucking journey - sounds like you’re prepared lol

    @CIWYW

    Ive ended up with several backups lol

    Luckily Ive found I can satisfy my VAS with cheap butane vapes (vaponic vapocane vapcap)

    I use the mighty as performance benchmark

    it gives me the confidence to decide how well my new cheap butane vape works

    Oh My God ...

    I love Fedex, btw. It came with full bars on charge, but I did do a 15 min burn-in. I charged it for another hour after that and have just had my first cartridge or whatever those metal things are called and on to my second. I was going to try and figure out how much I'm vaping and how many hits and stuff, but I'm flowered up off my butt ... thank God the staff meeting is over ;)

    So far, loving it... must get used to it, but if it can keep going as well as the first capsule or two then I definitely have fucked combustion.

    If you can completely avoid combustion for, like, a couple of weeks, you may come to realize a new/different appreciation for the effects of the flower. You may also notice, if you do try combustion again, just how awful that tastes.

    Btw, Welcome to the forum!

    Hows it going all,

    I had thought about buying a Mighty back in June, but ended up going with the Pax 2. I enjoyed the Pax for 5-6 months, but eventually became concerned about the safety. (Worried about the heating element heating internal parts and releasing toxic/cancerous/synthetic vapors. And about the half pack oven lid in the heating chamber doing the same thing)

    Anyway, I had stopped using the Pax because of these concerns. I thought I would buy a better vape and figured it would be safer. I saved up the $400-$500 needed for the Mighty, but never bought it.

    I would love to buy the Mighty and after extensive research back in May/June, I determined it was the best option for portable vapes. But I am worried about the heating element and heating chamber, what they're made of, and if they are releasing any toxic vapors. I ended up with the same concerns about the Mighty that I had about the Pax 2.

    This is the most important requirement for me when buying a vape. I only want to inhale my medication, nothing else. I want the safest vape, safe materials, etc. Then I want good taste, vapor quality, battery life, etc.


    If anyone has any input on this matter, that would be awesome and I'd greatly appreciate it!

    The Mighty Medic, virtually identical to the Mighty, is the only vape in Europe that is certified for medical use, and that says a lot in its' favor.

    Thanks for the reply vapviking!

    I have never heard of the Mighty Medic. I unfortunately cannot access the Mighty Medic part of the Storz and Bickel website. It appears to be only available in Europe. I would buy that if I could. Seems to be just what I am looking for. Any way to get it to the US?

    The Mighty may be virtually identical, but I still have the same concerns.

    Any further input on the Mighty's safety would be appreciated

    I looked at this a lot. The heating element and materials used between the two devices are the same. Some tolerances of the device were tweaked to meet gov't regulations, but the manufacturing process and most of the parts/source materials are the same...ie regular one is 'safer' than average though not gov't certified, which means little to me anyway.

    I mentioned before I quit cigs years ago with eLiquid, know that there are some of the same issues with kanthal and other wire alloys, etc. In the end, it's a fraction as dangerous as combusting on a regular basis.

    Final note, broke my unit in I think...about 4 sessions today, between sessions right now but it' totally incredible. I am experiencing a different kind of effect, not sure what to make of it, but the stoopid still comes out.

    I only wish I could get my particular preferred flower, my locality is way behind the times as far as the flower topic goes :(

    i think you are on the safe side with the Mighty. I am from germany and the Storz&Bickel Vaporizers are all checked by the TÜV, a rather strict inspection authority, no other Vaporizers got that seal here. In the case of the Mighty there is this "Mighty Medic" Version which is identical to the normal Mighty. It`s only named Medic so that if you are prescribed Marijuana you can go to the insurance and try if they are paying the device. i don´t think you can get this device other than with a prescription, as it´s only meant for patients.

    Anyways as i lurked this forums before buying my Mighty i finally got it yesterday and i am really really impressed.. i have a Plenty and the Mighty is nearly on par with the Plenty, but smaller and without a cord. I also have an Extreme Q and i would say that one is by far the weakest of the three....Extreme Q elbow packed or not is at least for me a really light high, the Plenty blows this one out of the water, as the Mighty..

    I smoked Bong for 20 years and changed to vaping at the end of last year. With the Mighty it´s really convenient to vape in between as you aren`t required to have a power socket nearby.. and the effects are tremendously good with the Mighty, if i want to get baked i vape 2 capsules back to back, that gets me high enough. i am really impressed by this little device, never thought it would be so powerful. As a former Bong user i really recommend the Mighty and its thick clouds, it really is a beast

    Yep, as @WakeVape&Bake said the Medic ist just the same as the "regular" Mighty aside of the printed "Medic". But it's nearly 100 € more expensive just because of it's certification as a medical device - and the possibiliy of getting paid it by your health insurance in Germany if descripted.

    @Masacr you may want to leave the world of plastic vaporizers behind and look at devices like the Milaana or the Vapcap from Dynavap. Those are the two that have really sold me on vaporizing vs. combustion as their vapor tastes best, smells best, and hits the hardest of anything I've tried. YMMV but that has been my experience.

    Love 'em both (Mi - VC), but the way I use them all, I don't think any of those three hit "harder" than the others .

    I do think they hit differently. Not counting combustion accidents, my Mighty is the only one that I need to make sure I finish a hit with fresh air because it can send me into coughing fits. The VC's chamber is too small for that and my Mi's I'm not generally pushing that hard to extract.

    Just another perspective...

    First post in a long time here, hello everyone. Just wanted to let you know that I received yesterday my Mighty in Canada, ordered from S&B website this past week-end, and I was very happy to receive it in the new white box, with the sticker "20% more battery power". So it seems they are now distributed (or at least beginning to be) in North America !

    I wrote it a couple of posts ago that the Mighty has got the German TÜV seal, which is a seal from a really strict national authority. Besides I am not quite sure about the world wide status but afaik the Mighty is the only officially acknowledged medical vaporizer in Europe. Regarding the current medical knowledge there is nothing harmful on the Mighty.


    /e: Sorry I did not realize your questions already has been answered several times lol. Btw I am absolutely 100% sure, that some dude already has asked S&B about the differences between the Mighty Medic and the Mighty and they stated that there are no technical differences at all, one just got a seal and the others do not.


    /still posted cause of too much work producing the answer :p :p

    Thanks for the information everyone. I am happy to hear that the Mighty is virtually identical to the Medic. Even better it is the only one certified for medical use. I will likely end up buying a Mighty, unless I find something better, safer, etc.

    I am interested in the Milaana as well now. I have heard good things about the E-Nano too. I am not sure what to think of the VapCap, I know its a little metal piece and you heat it with a butane torch, but that's about it. I have tried the MFLB a few times and always heard good things about that too.
    I am definitely in search of the safest vape on the market, with great taste, quality, battery life, etc. The Volcano (also medical certified I believe) would be great, but I am in search of something a bit more transportable so the Mighty is a good option.

    If anyone has any vape recommendations or additional info, that would be sweet.

    Thanks again FC

    Just portables?

    The Mi is a good device for sure but I would go with the new Splinter cause of it's temp control and - after all I've heard - a better performance.

    The Venus Apollo is powered by halogen and it's a portable beast.

    Perhaps take a look at the Tubo Evic too.

    If you are looking for torchables give the Sticky Brick (Junior) or the VC a try - the first one is better on flavour the latter on efx.

    A bit more risky and not so handy is the really superb butane powered Supreme V 3. Performance and flavour is top notch. And regarding size and weight a device for on the go (to safe places where you can use it)
