Wow that’s nice! They don’t joke with that battery life extension
I have the new version mighty as well and i charge it mid-day so i can always keep some battery in it, 6-8 bowls per full charge sounds about right
Amazing vapor production
Cooling unit gets very sticky and gooey but i scrape it and Dab it
After the scrape a cleaning is good, for 'sanitary' purposes.
Here's what I found to be the easiest, and quite thorough. C/U comes out like new:
The Mighty by Storz & Bickel
Are there others here who would just have to use the full bowl now and then or do many people feel that full capsules are more than good enough and stick with keeping things clean?
If you were to ask me, (although I normally use about two thirds of a capsule) the biggest belt I got from Mighty was full bowl, and a full capsule (or one and a half, or two!) comes very close!?
I have a clean newish Crafty that I haven't used full bowl yet but the temptation to see the effects is great, and now my Mighty is away for RMA I wonder if that get's refreshed if I'd have to pick one to use full bowl now and then for the power and fun it gives.
That little brown deposit at the bowl top is a little pet hate of mine but maybe now with more rigid cleaning, or sticking to say a 200C max, it wouldn't appear as much?
Perhaps I'll just stick to capsules in the one that will go out the most (Crafty!)
My understanding is the Mighty, when it's plugged in, uses the power supply to heat the element, then when the thermostat cuts out it charges the battery momentarily and switches back and forth.
If the battery were to completely die in very late stages it might still heat and there might be a chance it will throw an error and shut down.
It might also be a matter of time before the batteries leaked or worse.
I'm thinking of the slight possibility that someone, @JCat , @OF , any of the others, me under the instruction of somebody, could put together a BRM, or batteries replacement module, to give the correct signal to the Mighty where it thinks the healthy batteries are in place and it charges a fake battery load!
Then you have plug in Mighty for as long as it lasts!
What you describe is the battery performance of an old Mighty (or perhaps a new Crafty?) I'm getting 6-8 bowls now (with my old Mighty)
I got a brand new Mighty today and I’m on my 6th day of my T break. The torture.. Cant wait to let it rip!
It's the weekend soon, crank that baby up!
I'm getting worried about mine now, when I sent it off for repair they asked here if it had batteries and I said no.
Apparently they don't carry batteries!
Declared as electronic cigarette and I forgot to put a return address on the outside...
Hoping it lands there tomorrow morning for assessment.
I just purchased it and it came with the new white box with a 2017 date on it, im %99 sure its the newer version
I just leave it on for too long during the sesh and end my bowls at 395 and still get a few hits at the end
Just an update: after 7 bowls at 195 C approx 6-7 minute sessions + the 5 minute burn-off, I have 2 full bars of battery remaining. I still might get 10 bowls before she needs a charge.
Did it have the "20% more battery" sticker on it?
Ah yes, that could be the reason for less bowls. Enjoy playing with your Mighty!
Got mine from @PuffItUp today and it was white with the 20% sticker.

My understanding is that, in U.S., when the post office asks if there are batteries, they are asking about loose batteries. Batts that are internal , non user-serviceable are not their concern (like, say, an ipad).
Yesterday I was sippin’ on the mighty while watching a comedy show. And while I was taking a hit I suddenly laughed so hard I blew pretty strongly IN my mighty... can that damage the device?
No, it did not come with a %20 more battery sticker, but The sticker is just a selling tactic, not all the new units come with it from my research,
As long as it comes with the white box and the auto shut off feature with 5 clicks, its the newest model
Curious why you are including a burnoff? (Burnoffs to me are a one time thing, when the unit is brand new)
That's not how S&B rolls. What research are you basing that conclusion on? Also, where did you purchase it, S&B direct or somewhere else? Thanks
I purchased mine at a reputable smoke shop near me which advertised the new model with the battery upgrade.
The only place ive seen the sticker was on Ebay and it didint look legit. The old model comes with the blue box, the newer one comes with a white box. I have seen pictures of the new box online aswell and most of them do not come with a sticker.
Maybe the %20 sticker was released with the first batch of the new models
Not sure it's that cut and dry, as the Crafty had the extra battery life first. At that point there may be white boxed Mighty's before the battery upgrade was implemented.
As far as the sticker, I'm not sure....
Its a great vape anyway, i used my davinci iq once and its just sitting in my closet lol
I came from pipes all day long and bongs, now mighty is all i use, grasshopper vape does seem interesting though...
Sorry bro, forgot to mention that this unit is brand new. Only did the burn-off the first time I turned it on
Cool, please let us know how many bowls (or capsules) you can get on a full battery. I know it's all approximate based on temp, but it will give us an idea, thanks
Ive had my mighty 3 weeks, and now it wont fully vape my bowls
After 5 hits, no more vapor is produced, and even at 400 F i barely get any vapor and the bowl is still visibly green instead of brown
Started an RMA, hoping to have it resolved soon
magic goo yum yum
I got almost 10 bowls (Capsules) on a full charge, 5-6 minute sessions starting at 185-195C. Half way through my last bowl I had to plug the Mighty into the charger.
This is right in line with my use on the 'old' Mighty batteries.
I would get about 8 capsules from those, and 20% more is 8 X 1.2 = 9.6, or about 9-1/2 capsules.
But I'd only run batteries down when necessary (no power source available). They say it's better to charge when they get down to about 20% of capacity, like, 1 or 2 bars on indicator.
This is just a little update/review for anyone reading this, debating if they should but a Mighty. I personally debated about buying a Mighty for medical use, for months. The cost, was what kept putting me off. I broke down in January, and bought one. I don't enjoy getting high, and only use it for micro-dosing. It's a several time a day thing for me to control pain. Since i dont enjoy getting high, this wont be your typical Mighty Fanboy love letter review.
First thing I noticed: This thing is powerful, and I needed a way to calm it down! I came on here, raved about it, but i wasn't experienced with it, and was simply amazed at the power this thing has. It knocked me on my ass for several hours the first few times. Since I don't enjoy that, this was bad. I don't enjoy it, as I'm a stroke survivor. I have permanent brain damage, and rarely like things that alter my brains new "normal" state.
After several months now, I'm much more experienced, and am writing this before dosing. I've now came to the conclusion, that I should have bought it sooner! That said, its even more expensive then i thought. I sure am glad I stuck with it though.
I was a little worried at first, as the Mighty isn't generally a vape the comes to mind when talking about micro-dosing. It worked ok, but I seemed to be wasting a lot, as I couldn't finish it all at once, and leaving it in, isn't ideal.
I ordered some dosing capsules, and that made life easier. I was using less, and wasting less, and it seemed ok. It was still too strong, and every capsule still seemed to have too much. I kept measuring smaller and smaller amounts, which didn't have the best results, as there was now empty space. At this point, my thinking was, If this was as good as things got, I had probably wasted my money, plus the money for dosing capsules.
I definitely liked it better with the capsules though. Not amazing, or the best thing out there. It took me months to actually save enough for the Mighty. And then the added expenses of the dosing capsules. Not to mention all the product i was wasting. When will the expenses end!?!
Then, I bought the liquid pads designed for the capsules. Before they got to me, I had decided this was the Mighty's last chance. I wasnt going to spend any more on it. While waiting for the liquid pads, I actually checked used prices, in case I decided to sell it.
The liquid pads transformed everything. It went from simply "ok", to one of the best purchases I've ever made! Now this is what I was expecting! I can load my micro amounts, and get the exact results I wanted. Just enough to cut the pain, but not enough to really alter my brain. The liquid pads are a little stiff, and finicky the first few times, but they keep holding up.
I bought extra capsules/liquid pads, and now have 2 magazines. I used a marker, and now have 1 magazine of 8 for my regular, and 1 magazine of extra strength, for the extra severe pain days. I suppose, the same process could also be used for different strands rather easily, or a daytime/night time idea. Whatever works for you.
For me, the Mighty, while using the liquid pads to take up the extra space in the capsules..it's just perfect! Extremely easy to use. After the liquid pads are loosened up a little, they become extremely easy to refill. It keeps things extremely clean inside too.
The best part? With the liquid pads taking up extra space, but still delivering top-notch efficiency, I am not wasting any! The Mighty, used in this way, is now Saving me money! I'm definitely using less product then before, with zero waste, which is saving me money. Ok, technically it's still paying me back from the cost of the Mighty. It's covered the costs of the capsules/liquid pads/and accessories (see note at the end for accessories comment)
Zero waste? Well, ok, a Little waste, but that is my fault. The ABV is perfectly consistent. I simply haven't found the perfect dosage when cooking with it. My only waste for the past couple weeks, has been the ABV, and figuring out how much to use. Some ABV has been wasted in this process.
The ultimate question for me. If my Mighty (named More, as in eenie, meenie, Mighty Moe) was stolen today, would I buy it again? Absolutely! For me, 99% micro-dosing, this is Perfect for me. My only complaint, is that they should include a liquid pad for the dosing capsules with the purchase. The one capsule that was included, died a horrible death due to an accessory, after only a couple uses. If there was a capsule sized liquid pad included, it would have saved me time/frustration/and the loss of some product.
I truly hope this posts helps someone who is debating if they should buy a Mighty. Absolutely buy it! If you are micro-dosing, I personally consider the dosing capsules a necessity. The dosing capsule liquid pads, are also a necessity for me, but that will depend on individual tolerance.
Side note about accessories: After 3 months, only 1 dosing capsule has died, and that was due to an outside (not S&B) product. I bought a "Dosing Capsule Sleeve", to help organize things from delta3dstudios.com. The sleeve is so friggin tight, I crushed the capsule just trying to get it out. The funnels I got from there are awesome, but I simply wasted money on the sleeve, and it got thrown out with the trash in anger/frustration.
I like the S&B magazines, but really wish they were smell proof. The magazine lid, holds my doob tube perfectly, which helps with refilling. (I keep some product already grinded in a doob toob for when I travel)
The S&B keychain holders are great in theory. I dislike them though. Keeping track of full/empty capsules are a pain, unless you have a second container for empty ones. Depending on grind, a tiny amount can also come out while transporting.
I bought a generic keychain "pill holder" through eBay. It opens on both top, and bottom, making it easier to take a full one from the top, flip it upside down, and add your empty. Still a hassel, but for less then $1, it's a slightly better option. Keychain style, just isn't for me.
