Mighty Vaporizer Review [4K Video] ~10:54
The Mighty is a portable convection vaporizer much like the Crafty but about twice the size and over twice the battery life. It’s made by Storz and Bickel out of Germany which also manufactured the Plenty, a plug-in type home use vaporizer, and the Volcano, a home-use desktop vaporizer.
The Mighty has the best average battery life of any portable vaporizer I have tested. I rated the Mighty a 9.2 out of 10 which is currently my 4th highest rated portable vaporizer out of the
22 50+ 70+ I have tested. It’s extremely easy to use via the on-vape temp buttons and it’s one of the most consistent portable vapes I’ve ever used.
Biggest downside you’ll see in my Mighty vaporizer review is the size of the unit. So if you don’t care about discretion, want the best battery life, and keep your vapes in backpacks, then this might be the best portable vaporizer for you.
The Mighty retails for $399. Click here to check it out at the same place I buy my vapes from.
Mighty Size & Portability
The Mighty is one of the biggest portable vaporizers currently on the market. The exact dimensions are 5.5″H x 3.2″L x 1.2″D and weighs 230 grams. By comparison, the Crafty weighs 135 grams, the Pax 2 is about 90 grams, and the Firefly 2 is about 140 grams.
Although it has some size to it, I do still use the Mighty when I’m out and about. It’s the vape I take when I’m hanging out with friends because I know it will never run out of battery and even a novice could use it without any coaching.
It’s definitely not the best for concealment. The Mighty can easily fit into a backpack, handbag, or a bigger purse but it’s not the most comfortable to have in your pocket. I compare it to about like sticking a pack of ramen noodles in your pocket.
So I consider the Mighty to be a great group vaporizer and not so much for personal concealment type use. It’s very easy to hold and pass around plus the outside remains cool to the touch. The fins on the outside act as heat sinks and allow the exterior of the vaporizer to cool no matter how you hold it.
Heating Element & Temperature Options
The Mighty uses both a conduction and convection heating method. Also known as a hybrid, it uses a bit of conduction to help pre-heat the bowl and then convection for the rest of the time.
The Mighty features an LED 1×1 display with easy to use buttons on the side to control the temp. Sort of like on the Volcano Digit but on a much smaller scale. You can select any temperature from 105-410F at any point during your vape session. It’s nice to have that precise control for different types of herbs or just vaping at different points in the day. Different temps, different effects.
Unfortunately, the Mighty does NOT use the smartphone app like the Crafty. I really wish they would have added that feature to the Mighty.
I’ve found the Mighty takes about 1:30 to 2:00 minutes to heat up which is much fast than the Crafty but overall, much slower than the rest of the competition. The average market heat up time is around 60 seconds but I have noticed that the temp is much more consistent during draws.
Chamber Size, How-to-Use & Packing Techniques
The Mighty bowl holds about .2 grams of dry herb depending on grind style and how you load the chamber. You can get upwards of .3 grams with a super fine grind. I can usually vape an entire bowl in about 5-6 hits which makes for much faster sessions and I can get medicated quickly. The Mighty is extremely easy to use. Press the power button and it will automatically begin heating to your set temp. It will show the default temp, actual temp and battery life remaining. No holding buttons or batteries. Just wait for it to heat up and you’re ready to go.
The Mighty comes with the Filling Aid that makes loading/unloading the bowl super easy. Just load the herb, attach the filling aid and drop in some herb. After that, just reattach the Mighty cooling unit and vape on. Check out the video below to see how easy it is. (Crafty and Mighty have same filling method, but the Mighty has a slightly larger cooling unit on top.)
Battery Life, Charging Options, & Charge Times
This category is where the Mighty shines! The Mighty is my highest rated portable vaporizer for battery life and I don’t think it will be knocked off anytime soon.
I’ve been able to get an average of 8 sessions in before the battery dies. That’s 90+ minutes of average continuous use. It also uses pass-through charging which allows the Mighty to be used while charging. It takes a couple minutes to begin heating the chamber if it’s completely dead.
With the extra batteries and battery life, the Mighty needed some big charging power. So, unfortunately, the Mighty doesn’t have the USB charging system like the Crafty. It plugs into the wall like most other chargers and I’ve found that it takes about two hours to charge the Mighty from dead.
Mighty vs Crafty & Firefly 2
The Mighty is really in a league of its own. This is the best vaporizer if you want the most battery life and don’t really care about the size or concealment. But because of the size, I rate three other portable vaporizers higher. The Crafty, Firefly 2 and Grasshopper are all rated 9.3/10.
The Crafty (9.3/10) is one of the best vaporizers to come to market and I dub it the absolute personal vaporizer. It’s easily concealed, even easier to use, and the temps are controlled via the Storz and Bickel smartphone app. The only differences between the Crafty and Mighty are the average battery life, size, and a slightly larger cooling unit on top. The vapor quality, ease of use, and consistency are the same in both units.
It basically comes down whether you need the portability and concealment or want max battery life.
The Firefly 2 (9.3/10) ranks higher because of two categories: Vapor Quality (Taste, Temp, Density) and Portability. The Firefly 2 weighs less and heats up in 5-7 seconds including pre-heat. So you can basically pull it out and get in a session (2-3 hits) before the Mighty even finishes heating up.
The Firefly 2 is a Dynamic Convection vaporizer powered by a high-powered li-ion replaceable battery. It comes with 2 replaceable batteries and I’ve averaged about 3-5 bowls per battery. The Firefly 2 is much better than the original in terms of weight, portability, and consistency. It’s also much better with concentrates and probably my favorite portable dry herb vaporizer to use with concentrates.
If you want the best vapor quality in a portable vaporizer then the Firefly 2 might be the better option. It does, however, require a little more technique so it’s not quite as easy to use as the Mighty or Crafty.
Accessories & Filling Aid
The accessories are pretty standard with the Mighty but they did add in the “Filling Aid”. The filling aid attaches to the top of the unit and creates an easy, non-messy way to load the bowl.
Mighty Warranty Information
So this is one of the cons of the Mighty, IMO. The Mighty only has a two-year manufacturer warranty which is below the average. The Pax 2 comes with a 10-year warranty. The Haze V3 comes with a 5-year warranty and even the Volcano/Plenty have 3-year manufacturer warranties.
Summary: Should you buy the Mighty?
Can you use without having to hide it? Can you store it on the go? Do you vape with friends often? Do you need the best battery life for long day adventures? If you answered yes, yes, yes, and… yes… then you will more than likely love the Mighty.The Mighty has great vapor quality, it’s easy to use, and one of the most consistent vaporizers I’ve reviewed. You can pack the chamber in any fashion and you will get the same great results 99% of the time.
I recommend you buy the Mighty from the same place I get my vapes from. I’ve been using them for years and they’ve never let me down. They are always running specials on free/quick/discreet shipping and they throw in a free gift like a dry herb grinder.
Thanks for visiting my blog and hopefully my Mighty vaporizer review helped you make an informed decision. Feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions about the Mighty or any other vaporizer.
Overall the Mighty is the perfect portable vaporizer for someone that needs battery life. It's not very easy to conceal because of the size but the vapor quality and consistency are very good.
