Crafty Portable Vaporizer by Storz and Bickel

CRAFTY PORTABLE VAPORIZER COMPLETE SET

The Crafty Vaporizer is Storz & Bickel’s newest portable model.

The Crafty vaporizer is the most recent portable model from Storz & Bickel, the German manufacturers of the ubiquitous Volcano tabletop vaporizer. Unlike the Plenty, S&B’s previous handheld unit that never really proved to be easily portable because it had to be plugged in for use, the Crafty comes equipped with a lithium-ion battery.

The Crafty Vaporizer is one of the smaller portable vaporizers available with a size of 11.0 x 5.7 x 3.3 cm and a weight of only 0.29 lbs. It also comes with a remote control app that allows you to set basic and booster temperature and settings of the device according to one’s personal preference from your smart phone!

This vaporizer is powered by a single lithium-ion battery and has a one button control system. Once the control button is pressed it starts heating up automatically until it reaches the default temperature of the vaporizer (set via the remote control app). When the button is pressed twice it engages the boost temperature. The LED light changes from red to green when the set temperature is reached and will have a slight vibration letting you know that it’s ready to vape.

The vaporization functions on the basis of a full hot air convection heating combined with conduction. The convection heating provides an immediate and continuous vaporization, whereas the conduction ensures that there is vapor created from the very first breath. The aromatic plant material is filled in the filling chamber and then the cooling unit with the mouthpiece is to be attached, the cooling unit makes sure that the vapor cools down and gives best flavor and a rich aroma.

Conclusion:

The Crafty Vaporizer is a full convection hot air function based model, having precise electronic control, with high efficiency heat exchanger also having automatic switch off. This vaporizer also comes with a wireless Bluetooth multi-function app. The Crafty Vaporizer app has been successfully tested with Samsung Galaxy S5, S4, S3, Note II, Motorola Moto G, HTC one(m7) & (m8), Nexus 5, Sony Z1. The Crafty vaporizer is $399.00.

Popular Vaporizers Facing New Competition

The Volcano Vaporizer is still considered one of the best and the top rated vaporizers. It has held this position over the last several years despite competition from other models.

This is due largely to the Volcano vaporizer’s performance and the quality of vapor that it produces. The Volcano is known for excellent performance and dense, flavorful vapor. It heats the aromatic herb elements precisely to prevent combustion, which results in a pure, effective, and flavorful vapor. The Volcano vaporizer has also received prestigious award of Rudolf Eberie for innovation in 2003. It also comes in two models: Classic and Digital, which both carry a 3 years manufactures warranty.

Popular Vaporizers Facing New CompetitionHowever, the Volcano’s days as the undisputed king of the vaporizer market may be number. New models from other manufacturers now offer many of the same features and in some cases have even improved upon the Volcano’s design. The Vapir Rise and Zephyr Ion are two good examples.

The Vapir Rise is smaller than the Volcano, uses a digital temperature control, and comes with a whip in addition to bag functionality. The Vapir Rise vaporizer also comes with a 4 person direct draw adapter for easy use by groups and an adjustable fan, which are two features lacking in the Volcano.

Popular Vaporizers Facing New CompetitionThe Zephyr Ion vaporizer has all the features of a Volcano – digital temperature control, powerful pump, ballon / bag operation with a patented valve system – plus a number of features that it lacks. The Zephyr Ion’s ease of use is where it really stands out. With flip top design that allows for one handed operation and a well-designed, push button valve, the Ion is the most convenient vaporizer in terms of use that we have tried to date.

On the portable vaporizer front, Pen Vaporizers are getting very popular and are beginning to provide competition to tabletop models. Over the last few years, pen vaporizers have becoming very popular among consumers as the popularity of E-Cigarettes has shed light on their pen vaporizer cousins. These vaporizers are just very small in size, hence the name pen vaporizers. And they are easy to use, one just fills the pen vaporizer with aromatic plant materials or essential oils (depending on the model) and they are quickly heated to the desired temperature. Pen vaporizers are user friendly, very light in weight and small in size so there is no question about portability They are also very discreet and can be used with essential oils too. Most pen vaporizers run on high-performance Lithium-ion batteries.

Viva La Vape Patriot Vaporizer

We cannot conclude that only the table top vaporizers i.e. Volcano or Zephyr or Vapir are popular and the rest are not. All the vaporizers are popular and reliable on their own way. People who like to vape have a lot of options to pick from the Volcano Vaporizer to pen vaporizers or the Zephyr Ion or Vapir Rise.

While table top vaporizers are clearly facing competition from Pen/Portable vaporizers, they still have a place because of their ease of use and their efficiency. The number of good table top vaporizers has expanded with new technology, so there are a lot of good options to choose from

Plenty Vaporizer by Storz & Bickel

Plenty VaporizerPlenty Vaporizer by – Storz & Bickel

Storz & Bickel, the manufacturers of the top-rated Volcano Classic and Digit, have begun producing a portable model:  the Plenty Vaporizer.

The Plenty vape measures 6.1 inches long by 2 inches wide by 8.86 inches high″ and weighs 1.5 pounds. While the Plenty is a portable vaporizer, it still relies on being plugged into a wall outlet for power.  This approach has its pros and cons.  The Plenty Vaporizer is easily transported anywhere; however, it cannot be used without access to an outlet.  On the other hand, power and temperature regulation are not constrained by the limits of a battery.  Bi-metallic regulators allow for independent temperature control and automatic shut-off, ensuring that the device operates safely by preventing the unit from overheating.

To use the Plenty Vaporizer, grab the base of the cooling coil and twist counter-clockwise to reveal the filling chamber. When loading your blend into the heating chamber, ensure you are utilizing a liquid pad for smaller quantities of dry aromatic plant material and obviously liquids essential oils as well. To use the liquid pad with a pinch of dry plant material, insert the plant material and simply rest the pad on top it. For more information on vaporizing liquids and oils, consult the “Liquid Pads” section in the manual.

Replace the chamber’s lid to complete the process of loading the Plenty. Next, you’ll want to adjust the temperature by rotating the temperature wheel to select your desired vaporizing temperature. The Plenty Vaporizer operates within a range of approximately 266°F to 395°F; equivalent to 130°C – 202°C.

Click the power switch on the side to activate the heating element. Once the device has been switched on, the control light located below the analog temperature display will begin to glow orange and remain on until the desired vaporizing temperature has been achieved. Reaching vaporizing temperatures takes anywhere from 2-3 minutes, assuming that it hasn’t been warmed up.

Once the Plenty has fully heated, you’re ready to begin drawing vapor through the cooling coil. After 90 seconds, the heating element can be reactivated easily by squeezing the trigger-like button beneath the handle. Once you’ve completed a cycle or two, you should have the process down and find yourself enjoying the efficiency of the Plenty vape.

Conclusion:

If you have wanted a vaporizer and which is handheld capable of using both liquid essential oils as well as dry aromatic plant material and delivers high quality cool vapor and don’t mind having to be near an outlet, then Plenty Vaporizer is a great fit. Plenty vaporizer comes with a three year manufacturer’s warranty and is available at only authorized distributors.
