Mighty Vaporizer Review


Mighty Vaporizer Review [4K Video] ~10:54

The Mighty is a portable hybrid 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 100+ I have tested.

Not only is the Mighty vaporizer extremely easy to use via the on-vape temp control buttons, it’s also 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 $349. 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.

Mighty Portable Vaporizer Comparisons

Heating Element & Temperature Options

The Mighty uses both a conduction and convection heating method, also known as a hybrid. This allows it to produce tasty dense vapor extremely consistently and without the need to stir.

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.

The Mighty does NOT use the smartphone app like the Crafty, you can do everything on the vape itself.

I’ve found the Mighty takes about 1:30 minutes to heat up which is faster than the Crafty, but overall slower than the rest of the competition. Once it gets up to temp the Mighty holds temp well even while skiing in the winter.

Mighty Vaporizer Chamber and Cooling Unit

Chamber Size, How-to-Use & Packing Techniques

The Mighty bowl holds about .25 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 a dozen or less draws which makes for faster sessions that most session vapes . 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 has full pass-through charging which allows the Mighty to be used while charging. A lot of vapes like the crafty have partial pass-through so they can be used while plugged in, but the battery still dies, just slower than normal so they cannot be used with a fully dead battery.  With the Mighty you can plug it in while it’s fully dead and still use it.

With the extra batteries and battery life, the Mighty needed some big charging power. So, unfortunately, the Mighty doesn’t have the USB charging like the Crafty. It plugs into the wall 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 main differences between the Crafty and Mighty are the average battery life, size, and a slightly larger cooling unit on top. The Mighty has also proven to be more reliable than the Crafty under heavy use. However 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.

Mighty and Crafty Portable Vaporizers

The Firefly 2 (9.3/10) ranks higher because of two categories: Vapor Quality (Taste, Temp, Smoothness) 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 (2-4 hits) about the time the  Mighty 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.

The Firefly 2 does, however, require more technique/practice to get the best results and its not as consistent/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 only average. A lot of the newer vapes are starting to offer longer 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? 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 personally still have my original Mighty from the end of 2014 and have put more hours on it than any other portable vaporizer I have. If it wasn’t for the large size it would currently be my highest rated portable.

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 have 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.

Mighty Vaporizer Review

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.

    Hi Buzz,
    I have been lurking your reviews for while now and have just made the decision to buy the Mighty. I decided against the Crafty as I have a Grasshopper on pre order which I can use on the go and was looking for a vape to use at home that wasn’t restricted by a power cable. I also decided against the firefly due to the heat button as I just want to sit back, relax and pass it around with friends with having to give directions for use. This is my first vaporizer and I was just wondering if you had any tips for using the device? And if you think I have made a good decision with both of my vaporizer choices?

      You are going to have the best of both worlds, the Grasshopper is very powerful and very small so its a great on the go vape, and the Mighty is the best portable if you don’t need to carry it around in your pocket. The Mighty is very forgiving, there isn’t really any technique it just works. However I do prefer to start my bowls in the 345-365f range (Depending on strain) and then work the temp up as the session goes on. I also like using the liquid pad on top of the bowl if you want to do a partial pack.

        What exactly is the bad taste like? Is this potentially your first vaporizer Bill? If so vaped herb definitely tastes different than combusted herb.

    Hey bro,

    Nice review, it helped me to choose my first vapo, the crafty :) but I have a question for you : what is the best temp to vape weed with this vapo ?
    I’m actually doing it at 185celsius for the 2-3st hits and 192 degrees Celsius for the 6-7 others hits so am I good ?

    Thanks for your help !

    • Buzz Danklin says: June 4, 2015 at 4:01 pm

      Awesome! Glad that I could help you out my friend. You are actually vaping at the same temps I do. I like the lower temps for the first few draws and then pick it up towards the end.

      Yes it does preheat quicker, it also stays heated better during/after long or fast draws.

          Yes vaporizers do help with throat irritation and coughing compared to combusting, especially if you use a vaporizer that can attach to glass and vape through water. The Mighty is one of the vapes that will connect to glass easily.

    TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT

    Hello all,
    After six months of changing the temperature, going thorough several strains, different quantities vaped, I finally want to share my (unfortunately ) negative opinion on the Mighty vaporizer by Storz and Bickel.

    One huge problem, just like the worst tabletop vaporizer, Storz and Bickel’s Volcano, THE MIGHTY CONSUMES THE PRODUCT TOO QUICKLY.
    The company is the quickest to use it’s superior “German Engineering ” to sell its’ vaporizers, but, a decade after the Volcano has quietly and slowly drained the pockets/time of their customers, Storz and Bickel have yet to figure out that you cannot have the herb chamber being the actual heater chamber. Your tree is significantly consumed by the time it heats up. You’ll get a maximum of two real pulls per vape. I’ve consumed over 150 grams in one month.

    If you have a really high THC tolerance, the Mighty IS NOT THE VAPORIZER FOR YOU. You will be under constant frustration. I live in France, so I got it delivered to my house for free, but still costing a whopping 350 EUROS, THAT’S EUROS. I’m truly upset. I’ve become very familiar with over 10 different portable vaporizers, and I honestly feel the best one for the true weedhead is VAPIR NO. 2, I have yet to try the latest by Vapir. The reason this is because it is a true vaporizer, the heating chamber is MASSIVE, you can control the temperature to the degree, charge while vaping, and the taste and high is almost too much., i.e., perfect!

    The Mighty is better in three areas:
    1. It never has that “plastic ” taste (Vapir has it when it’s new ).
    2. It is very sturdy.
    3. Despite common opinion, the Mighty is very portable. I carry it in my pants pockets, get into every club and bar, and even in the inside suit pocket.
    4. After about 18 months, the NO. 2 will start to burn the tree. I can tell now this wont happen with the Mighty because of it’s. ..superior engineering. Honestly.

    I had to find a way to cut the oil pad in half horizontally and put it under the filter right over the heating unit. This is the only way my vape will last 60 seconds, if I lightly fill it. Like the Volcano, it packs ONE mighty pull, this is now the bong of portable vaporizers.

    THE MIGHTY IS NOT WORTH THE MONEY.

        Hi buzz, love the website! I was wondering if you had any problems with your mighty/crafty so far. I guess you have been using them for quite a while now. I was thinking to buy one but i am reading alot of concerning reviews about battery problems and usage of herb etc.

        Hoop to hear from you!

        • Buzz Danklin says: June 28, 2016 at 9:42 pm

          So far I haven’t had any problems with my Mighty or the Crafty. HOWEVER, I have over 60+ portable vaporizers that I use randomly at any given time and I don’t have the hours on my Crafty that most daily users do. The Crafty is definitely not the most reliable vaporizer. It is consistent, provides great vapor quality with very little draw resistance and super easy to use, but it takes quite a bit of time to heat up, has very low average battery life compared to the market now days and not quite as reliable as other vaporizers at that price point. I would recommend the Mighty if you don’t mind the size of the unit. It’s very reliable, quicker heat up and it doesn’t require an app to change temps. Everything is located right on the device. I was a much bigger fan of the Crafty in the beginning because of it’s size but the battery problems are annoying. I was really hoping they would come out with like a Crafty PLUS(+) that would add replaceable batteries or something of the sort but nothing yet. I really like the Mighty.

    Good review, thanks. I had two Crafties…both new, and died on me after 3 months of regular daily use. Mfr replaced both times, but still super frustrating. Loved loved loved it besides that, and really sad. Might try the Mighty…maybe larger battery can handle it’s power better? Idk…any experience with that type of issue with Crafty?

      I absolutely LOVE my Mighty but I also don’t really have to worry about hiding it too much. It is a much bigger unit but the battery life is so much better. Usually 4-6 bowls on a full battery with multiple people crushing it. And that’s usually up on the mountain where it is much much colder and windier. Basically the same vape but bigger, better battery life and a VERY easy to use on screen display with temp buttons. I really like the Mighty. No USB charging though.

    I will be using the mighty to vape just before bed and I usually take 1 to 2 draws before I go to sleep. Can I pack the bowl that low? And can I leave the left over unvaped material in the bowl for several days without damaging the unit? Thanks

    Greg

    • Buzz Danklin says: April 29, 2016 at 5:23 am

      You can definitely leave leftover material in a bowl without hurting the unit, however if you re-use it the flavor and effects will be diminished. If you only want to take a few draws, you might like packing a very small amount and then covering it with the mesh liquid pad that comes with the unit to hold the material in place, then you can then finish it all in just a few draws.

      I would say the Firefly 2 makes more sense for that pattern of usage.

      As Buzz says, just put a very small amount of herb into the bowl and use the mesh pad. Gives 2 good hits with dense vapour at 190 deg C, then another 2 at 210.

      You just need the Arizer Long whip if your glass has an 18mm connection, you can pick it up from vapeworld If your glass uses 14mm, you will also need to pick up an 18-14mm adapter, which can be found at local head shops, or on ebay for about $4-8

    What’s keeping me from getting the mighty is that it’s been a couple years since it’s release. I think that it’s time for them to release something new to keep up with the competition. Do you think S&B will come out with a new portable vaporizer in 2017!?

    Reply
    • Buzz Danklin says: February 28, 2017 at 12:12 pm

      I’m hoping so but no word yet. Crafty could use upgraded batteries, hopefully replaceable and the Mighty is still a beast. So we will see what happens and I’ll try to be the first to grab it if they release something new.

    Please advise.

      Hey Jaronson, unfortunately there are fake Mighty’s (and almost every other popular vape on the market) which is why it’s important to buy from an authorized retailer so you can ensure an authentic unit, and a valid warranty.

    Storz & Bickel: Good products, no support, no warranty honored, no way to contact.

    If you buy a Mighty or Crafty, be prepared to be on your own with it if anything goes wrong. I bought a Crafty and its battery life was too poor to make it useful for me. I did like the product, though, so I paid nearly $400 again for the Mighty. At first, the Mighty was awesome. The battery life is far better. However, after 7 months of use, the top of the vaporizer body was cracking away and left the three ‘columns’ that make up the Mighty body start to move independently of each other. Now the cooling chamber won’t even stay on correctly.

    Honestly, if my 2 year warranty doesn’t cover this, I would still be willing to pay to have it fixed, but reaching Storz and Bickel is impossible. Here in the US, we have to go through an Oakland office and they don’t respond to emails or voicemails. The ‘RMA’ process on the website is also a dead end. You can enter one, then you will be ignored and cannot enter another because they know that the serial number was already entered.

    In summary, I would simply say that if you have one of these vaporizers, be extremely careful with it because if a problem comes up, you are screwed.
