Storz and Bickel’s Crafty Vaporizer


Storz and Bickel are known for creating the Volcano and the Plenty vaporizers and now they also bring us the Crafty portable herbal vaporizer.

The Crafty is made with the same precision and quality that we would expect from this company.

The feel of the Crafty is well made with the outer case made from a type of rigid plastic that is vented.

The mouthpiece is external, which isn’t ideal, but it’s easy to wipe. The mouthpiece actually swivels out when you want to use it and goes back when you are done.

The Crafty has an internal lithium ion battery that is rechargeable. When the battery is drained it only takes 2 hours to fully recharge. You will then get about 45 minutes of use. This usage is on the low end and is not that impressive, but it’s still ok.

The Crafty also has a pass through charging so at least you can use it, whilst it’s charging. The battery will need to be charged to about 20% though before you can use it.

The charger for the Crafty uses a micro USB adapter so you able to buy extra if you need to.

The Crafty has an auto shut off, which is meant to conserve battery power. The Crafty will automatically turn off after just a minute of inactivity. The Crafty will vibrate though to let you know that it is shutting off and there is also a blinking LED light. Once the Crafty has shut off, you will just need to hold the power button for 2 seconds and it will go back on to the previous temperature setting in just a few seconds.

When you turn the unit on and off the Crafty will also show you how much battery power is left through a blinking blue light in various speeds.

In order to use the Crafty you will need to unscrew the top part do that the herb chamber is exposed. Load up the chamber and screw it back.

There is also an app for the Crafty, which allows you to control specific control for the vape. You are able to change the default temperature setting, the brightness of the LED lights and it can tell you the real temperature of the vaporizer when it is on.

The Crafty is a great vaporizer that can fit into your pocket with a great build, performance and vapor quality.

Dr. Dabber Ghost Vaporizer Review

Dr. Dabber Ghost Vaporizer Review

The Dr. Dabber Ghost is a vaporizer pen that is made for oil and wax concentrates. The Dr. Dabber Ghost pen is different from others. Here is a look at this vaporizer pen and how it differs from others.

The coil that is in each atomizer is made from high resistant titanium, which is wrapped evenly around a high quality wick.

The Ghost has been designed to work at lower heats so that more of the flavor is kept and the vapor is smooth. The coil helps the vaporizer to stay at the right temperature and the draws are even. This will also help you to avoid burning your material.

You will need to load a small amount of concentrate on to the coil. When you give it a little power the material will melt down into the wick and the fibers will become saturated. The coil will then heat these fibers so that your oils will vaporize.

The Ghost vaporizer kit comes with 2 atomizers and each of these should last about 1 to 2 months.

There are plenty of accessories on offer from Dr. Dabber and one of these includes the glass globe attachment. This allows you to see the vapor as it is being produced.

Two other accessories that are worth a mention are the Percolator and the Recycler. These are glass pieces, which allow you to vaporize through some water.

The vapor that is produced is smooth and tastes good due to the coil and the low heat. Short draws will give you a light vapor and long draws will provide clouds of vapor.

The battery on the Ghost vaporizer is pretty good as it will give you about 200 to 300 draws on a single charge. It takes about 2 hours for the battery to fully recharge.

Overall the Dr. Dabber Ghost pen vaporizer is good. It has a good battery life, the coil is unique and the low heat means that you are unlikely to burn your materials. The accessories are also pretty cool and do not cost a lot, so you will be able to change the way you vape easily.


AroMed 4.0 Review


AroMed 4.0 Review

The AroMed 4.0 vaporizer is a table top vaporizer, which is not portable, but it is digitally controlled and is a highly accurate convection unit.



AroMed is an experienced company that has been in the vaporizing market for 14 years.

The AroMed 4.0 is a water percolation unit and uses a halogen bulb which creates some tasty and cool vapor.

The AroMed gets its heat from the UV free halogen bulb that is low energy, efficient and also provide quick heat up time.

At the back of the main box is the bulb which is part of the glass bowl and water filtration unit. The digital controls and temperature read out are at the front of the box. These parts are well built and sturdy.

The temperature readout is a seven part display and the main box is a pale metallic where the hoses attach.

When it comes to the hit, the AroMed 4.0 delivers. The precision control of the vaporizers halogen bulb can be turned down in small increments. The temperature readout also tells you the heat of the plant matter inside the bowl and not the heating element. This ensures that the whole system stays within degrees of accuracy.

The bulb is efficient and fixed above the bowl, which means that it only vapes when air is moving through the mouthpiece.

The water filtration doe smoke a difference, whether the vapor is filtering through the built in water chamber or through an attached ROOR Icemaster. The water is help to keep down dust and herb particles and any carcinogens are dissolved from accidental combustion.

Overall the build quality of the AroMed 4.0 is excellent, but it doesn’t look that great. The vapor that you receive is great. The only thing with the AroMed is that it is an expensive unit, but you are getting quality.

VapirRise Vaporizer Review

The VapirRise works through the use of stainless steel cased heating chamber with an internal fan in order to create pure convection vapour.

LCD touch pad


You will get a flavourful vapour from the Rise. The Rise offers temperatures that reaches 204 degrees Celsius and offers the best tasting vapor at this temperature. The vapor is also light.

In the initial setup you will need some organisation because of all the parts; however it is to set up. The two large fan and temperature buttons on the display are easy to understand. Also the operation and maintenance of the unit is easy.

The Rise also has no glass components. Instead the unit uses surgical grade stainless steel which does the job and is more robust.

The Rise has ok temperature flexibility and with the LCD display touch pad you can adjust the temperature to the exact degree. The maximum temperature is 204 degrees Celsius so you will not get the full range of vaporizing temperatures. The vapour though that is produced at this maximum temperature is light and flavourful.




The Vaporizer for the New Year


There are plenty of vaporizers to choose from, but if you are looking for a vape that is made for dry herbs then the best are the Crafty, Mighty, Firefly, Pax and Launch Box. If you want a vape pen that uses wax and oil concentrates then you should look at DR. Dabber Ghost. Also if you want a vaporizer pen for dry herbs then the V2 Pro is worth a look.

Here is a better look at these vaporizers for the New Year.

Crafty and Mighty

The makers of the Craft and the Mighty are Storz and Bickel which are well known for Volcano and Plenty vaporizers.



These units perform as good as a desktop vaporizer but are smaller and cordless. The quality and performance is top notch for both of these and have the same herb chambers, but there are some differences between the two.

The first difference is the size. The crafty is a pocket sized unit and the mighty is a little bigger, but is still portable. The difference in size is owed to the fact that the Mighty has two internal batteries giving it 90 minutes of use and the Crafty with its one battery gives 45 minutes of use.


The Firefly is a sleek and elegant portable vaporizer that has a solid build. You will not have to pack a lot of herbs in the chamber and the vapor is strong flavourful.

It can be tricky to use this vaporizer, but it just takes some practice to get used to it.

Ploom Pax

The stand out features of the Ploom Pax is the sleek design, the size and it is easy to use. This is a great portable vaporizer that you can pack before you leave home so that you only need to take the device with you.

In order to get the best out of this vaporizer then it does need to be cleaned and a tiny drop of mouthpiece lubricant needs to be applied after 12 sessions.

V2 Pro Series 3

The V2 Pro Series 3 is a 3 in 1 unit, which means that there are different cartridges which you can use for vape e-liquid, dry herbs and concentrates.

This vaporizer is more to the lighter vape, but produces a smooth and tasty session. There is also pass through charging, which means you are able to use when it is plugged in.

This is a well-made and inexpensive vaporizer for personal use.

Magic Flight Launch Box

This vaporizer is affordable and is good quality with a basic design that has a few moving parts. This vaporizer can be tricky to use at first, but once you know how to use it, it’s enjoyable.

The vaporizer is perfect for those that are looking to have just a few draws at a time spread out over a longer time period.

The main features are that it works well with small amounts of materials and also heats and cools down quickly.

Haze Vape

The Haze Vape has a good build quality and a good battery life. Between the two batteries you will get about 2 to 3 hours of usage.

The performance and vapor quality is good and you can use it with dry herbs, oils or wax.

Arizer Solo

The Arizer Solo is easy to use and produces a good quality vapor, but there is a strong draw resistance. Also when it comes to portability it is a bit in the large side and is not really meant for on the go use.


Benefits of E-Cigarettes Over Normal Cigarettes


Benefits of E-Cigarettes Over Normal Cigarettes



When someone is looking to switch brands they always weight up the benefits of all the alternatives and this is the same when someone is considering making the switch from normal cigarettes to electronic cigarettes.

Electronic cigarettes are a practical alternative as they offer various benefits over smoking.

Here are e-cig benefits that will help you to know more about them.

E-cigarette Benefits

E-Cigarettes Do Not Smell

The fact is cigarettes do smell and then this smell gets trapped into almost everything including your hair, clothes and your car. Many people view the smell of cigarette smell as offensive and avoid close contact because of it.

As a smoker you are less likely to notice the smell, but to non-smokers and ex-smokers the smell is highly noticeable.

The smell from cigarettes is mainly due to the fact that you are burning tar and chemicals as well as the tobacco.

E-cigarettes do not have an odour as you are not exhaling smoke; instead you are exhaling vapour that then evaporates immediately.

Electronic Cigarettes are Cheaper

Cigarettes are expensive and the price seems just keep going up because of inflation and the rising prices of tobacco and the distribution cost. The biggest influence over the price of cigarettes can be owed mainly to tax.

E-cigarettes are however work out a lot cheaper. The entry costs of an e-cig starter kit can be initially expensive, but the month to month cost of electronic smoking is about half of traditional smoking.

E-cigs are not subject to tax at the moment and also as the technology becomes more mainstream the price will begin to decline.

E-Cigarettes are Safer

There is no hiding that smoking is hazardous to your health, but they are also a fire hazard because you need to use an open flame. 10% of all fire related deaths are caused by lit cigarettes.

With an e-cig you are not burning or using an open flame which eliminates the fire hazard.


There have been numerous studies that show how harmful cigarettes are and put you at a higher risk of stroke, lung cancer, heart attack, pneumonia, throat cancer and many more. This is because cigarettes contain hundreds of chemicals that are dangerous.


Smoking is viewed negatively by the majority. This is because of the smell and health problems that can be caused. There are new restrictions on where you can smoke and many public spaces have banned cigarettes altogether.

You are allowed to use an e-cigarette though in these public spaces a there is no smoke, but just vapour.
