Heating and Temperature
The Crafty vaporizer is a hybrid-heated, portable powerhouse that is as delicious as it is unique. The Crafty has two pre-set temperature settings, the lowest of which is the default at 180 degrees Celsius, with a bolstered temperature of 190 degrees Celsius. These temperatures can be altered and set using the vapes smartphone app so you'll be able to vape at higher temperatures pretty easily.
On top of that, the Crafty has a cooling unit built into the mouthpiece that forces the vapor to travel for longer, causing it to cool more before it reaches your mouth. The chamber that this vape is built from allows for high-heat efficiency.
Design and Features
Crafty Vaporizer Design
The Crafty vaporizer is hand-crafted in Germany by Storz & Bickel, the makers of the Volcano Vaporizer and Plenty Vaporizer, and is constructed from top quality materials for first-rate durability and functionality. We're talking stainless steel for the exterior of the body as well as a choice between steel or ceramics for the heating chamber. All of Storz & Bickel's vapes look like genuine machines and the Crafty vape is no different, with a coiled and textured design that makes it look like it was pulled straight from a car engine.
The Crafty vape employs several cutting-edge thermal engineering features, improving the vaporization experience. This lithium-ion battery powered unit fits right in your pocket. A one-button control turns the Crafty on and it heats automatically to the default temperature of 180 degrees Celsius. Once it reaches the desired temperature, the unit gives a short double-vibration and the LED lights change from red to green.

The Crafty's creates vapor of quality similar to the Volcano: dense, pleasant, and pure. The Crafty vape's effective vapor production system makes for an enjoyable vaping experience without the learning curve or multitude of components found in other vaporizers.
Crafty Vaporizer Features
The Crafty also comes with one of the more functional vaporizer apps on the market (more on that later). The vape also comes with vibration alerts as well as automatic shut off features for safety. The Crafty also comes with semi-pass through charging. This is when the pass-through charging is when a vaporizer can be used while it's plugged in, and in the Crafty's case, it can be charged and be used while the vape has more than 20% battery left.

How to use?
From the moment you take the Crafty out of the box you’re pretty much ready to start vaping. This is because the Crafty comes with a pre-charged battery, and when you do need to charge the battery after your battery dies you can find the charging socket behind the cleaning and packing tool. Plug and charge. It’s that simple. The Crafty device uses the same charging port as most smartphones, too, so you can even use your phone charger to charge it. And when the battery is over 25% charged you can use it while it charges.
Once the herb chamber is ready to be loaded you can access the chamber by turning the cooling on the top of the device 90 degrees counterclockwise. This opens the chamber to allow you to fill it with your material.
Now, grind some of your herbs with the Storz and Bickel grinder that was provided with the Crafty Vaporizer. Once the herbs are grinded, take the filling aid that also came with the Crafty, screw it on the top of the chamber and pour your herbs inside. This is a huge help as you won’t be wasting grinded herbs by dropping them all over the floor. After you finish packing the herbs, place the cooling unit back on top of the device and twist clockwise, when it’s back in place all you have to do is turn on the device and vape away.
To turn on the device you have the press the orange button, hold for a second or two, the red light will turn on and this will set the device to its pre-set temperature which is 180°C (356°F). If you double click the orange button it will keep on heating up to the boosted temperature of 195°C (383°F) (you can also change the boosted temperature on the app) Always remember you can change the temperature of the device by downloading the app on the Google play store or the Apple store. How do you know if your device is heated up to the temperature you set it at? The red light turns to green and the device gives off a vibration to tell you when it’s heated.
To start vaporizing all you have to do wait until the light on the device is either green or flashing green to know that it is heated and ready. Now all you have to do is turn around the mouthpiece away from the device and inhale slowly.
*Remember to get the full value out of your Crafty make sure you download the app (Crafty Remote Control) on the Google play store and the Apple store.*
