Charging your Mighty Vaporizer
Storz & Bickel are thoughtful enough to pack the Mighty with the battery charged to 80% which is great if you are impatient and want to play with your new toy right away!
However, we advise showing a bit of restraint plugging it in and charging it up to full before using – it’ll only take about half an hour.
From an empty battery, it takes roughly two hours to reach full charge.
A full charge should provide up to 10 full sessions.
Perform a quick burnoff of the Mighty’s Oven
As with all dry herb vaporizers, it is worth completing a quick burn off once the battery is fully charged. This will disinfect the Mighty’s oven and ensure there is no leftover residue from the manufacturing process.
All we need to do is turn the Mighty on by pressing the orange button on the side. Then press the up arrow until it reaches its maximum temperature of 210c.
Let the Mighty warm up with the oven empty and leave it until it reaches switches off automatically.
Now we have a completely disinfected oven and can get the party started!
Packing your Mighty Vaporizer
The Mighty works best with a fine grind. The plastic grinder that comes with it will do this just fine.
Also worth using is the plastic herb loader. Pop your ground herbs into the loader then twist it into the Mighty’s oven – it should lock into place. Then all you need to do is use the plug to push the herb into the oven and you have a Mighty that’s perfectly packed and ready to vape!
The Mighty performs best when your herbs are packed quite loosely. Ensure that the entire width of the oven is completely covered so air has to pass through the herbs.
If you’re not using enough herbs to half-fill the oven, carefully place the concentrate pad on top of your herbs to pad your oven out.
Using your Mighty for the first time
Despite being jam-packed with some of the craziest technology, the Mighty is incredibly simple to use.
Turn it on by pressing the orange button one. Then use the up and down arrow keys to set the temperature.
The device will race up to your desired temperature automatically
The number at the top is the temperature the Mighty’s oven is currently at whilst the temperature at the bottom is your desired temperature.
When it is time to vape the Mighty will vibrate to let you know.
The Mighty’s air path is so well designed that you should be able to produce hits with no real technique – no learning curve here! Just heat it up and vape away!

Last updated: January 24, 2018
Mighty remains my daily vaporizer at home. The newest models are more reliable after having some early production problems. Despite its cleaning and maintenance needs, I stand by this Mighty vaporizer review as the best vape to date.
Mighty is a medium-sized portable vape with an industrial look — people might mistake it for a car or motorcycle part. Its design and shape is like a heat sink that helps dissipate the heat, so Mighty is only warm to the touch, never hot, even at max temp.
Son of a Volcano
The Volcano has long been the king of vaporizers, ever since Storz & Bickel started making them in 2001. These Germans obviously know quality, and they had set my expectations high going into this. They make straight-forward design that’s useful, not just attractive. The knobs and switches on the Volcano and Digit are impressively built and easy to use.
Holding Mighty in your hand is no different, it feels solid — its industrial-grade plastic is a good shape and feels like a well-made electronic device. I like holding it better than Crafty when I’m at home relaxing, it feels more substantial and is easier to adjust for different cannabinoid effects.
How to Use Mighty
Twist the mouth piece off to reveal the convection bowl.
Fill the bowl with a fine grind using the included orange loader. It’s a decent storage container, too. A useful tool, included in the box. Nice touch!
Perfect every time. Use the loader to pack without spills.
Press the power button. Mighty vibrates when turning on, off or reaching a set temperature.
Press both temp buttons to switch between fahrenheit and celsius on the LCD display. (The numbers look great in person, but my camera didn’t capture how clear it looks.)
Now you’re ready to medicate. I find somewhere between 360-390°F a good temperature to vaporize high-end medical cannabis from San Francisco dispensaries. I’m really enjoying 375°F for Indica dominant strains like Afghani Grandaddy (21.9% THC, .5% CDB, .2% CBN). And a little higher at 385°F for Girl Scout Cookies (9% THC, 6.13% CDB, 1% CBN). These are excellent for the anti-inflammatory effects and help ease my Crohn’s symptoms.
Inhale slowly but you’ll notice right away the air flow is nice and open compared to most other portables. Some portables require suction like a thick smoothie or milkshake—not Mighty.
My session is about 2 minutes long and the bowl looks mostly toasted. I didn’t even stir! That’s the sign of a good quality heating element that evenly distributes the bowl temperature.
Well-vaporized my friends.
How it Rated: 97%
I’ve seen bigger cell phones than Mighty, so if size isn’t too big of a concern get it over Crafty and enjoy double the battery life and faster warm-up times. Meet the ultimate portable.
You could waste a lot of money on sub $200 vaporizers that break after a year of regular use, especially portables. Yes, $350 makes Mighty the most expensive portable, but it’s also the most powerful portable with a great battery life.
One-button for on/off; two temperature buttons for up and down make it easy to change temps. Power adapter charging is convenient because you can use Mighty plugged in even when it’s below 25% battery life (Crafty requires more juice).
The design is industrial and bold, and doesn’t exactly fly under the radar as stealthy. You can hold this in one hand and conceal it fairly well inside a big sweatshirt sleeve or a large cup. Only minor issue is Mighty doesn’t stand up by itself like Crafty, so loading it requires two hands.
I wouldn’t recommend dropping it, since it has some electronics inside, but overall the durability of this is something I come to expect with all of Storz & Bickel’s products.
1) Unscrew the mouthpiece and load the bowl. 2) Push the on button on Mighty and wait about 1 minute for warm up. 3) Medicate.
The twist-off top makes it super fast and easy to load the bowl. The included herb loader helps a lot, but you could also use a small tube to quickly load your herbs without much fuss.
Unmatched for a portable. Pax and Arizer Solo have long held the top spots for hardest hitting portable but Mighty and Crafty are setting a new high bar for vapor quality in portables. Mighty hits harder because it has more power and feels more accessible with the controls right there.
Turn upside-down and the bowl empties with a light tap. Sometimes you’ll need to use the brush that’s included. It’s a nice wooden brush with soft bristles, another small but thoughtful detail of quality. Also, read my in-depth how-to guide on cleaning Mighty for more info and photos.
You could argue some small amount of vapor is lost waiting for warm-up, but I won’t. Some vaporizers work better with a smaller load, but that’s easily fixed by adding the oil pad to fill the space.
Regular use requires regular cleaning, especially inside the top mouthpiece. Spend time cleaning parts in ISO alcohol according to the manual.
Stop Watch Times
- Warming up to 370°F temp: less than 70 seconds
- Increasing to max temp (410°F): 12 seconds
- Big hits can draw temperature down: -5 or -10 degrees
Mighty is the top of the line portable for medical and heavy cannabis users, so it’s a little large in size because of the good battery life and fast heating element. It can be tucked into a large sweatshirt sleeve to be concealed, but it’s definitely on the large side for a portable. If being stealthy is a requirement, get a Crafty. No USB charging on the Mighty is a minor miss, however the battery draws too much energy.
Crafty vs Mighty
Can’t decide? Here’s our take:
Mighty is only $70 more and you get double the battery life and can use while plugged in at any battery life %. Crafty limits you to above 25% to use while plugged in.
Crafty is so small and portable, it’s easier to conceal in one hand or inside a sweatshirt sleeve. You can do this with Mighty too, but it’s harder unless you have big hands.
Double the battery life (90 min) while not even close to double the size
Medical use Mighty
For heavy regular use you’ll probably want to use plugged in below 25% life. And if you switch strains a lot and change temperatures often the Mighty makes that much easier.
- can use both dry herb flowers and oils/waxes/concentrates
- the most powerful portable we’ve reviewed
- two button easy temperature controls (104-410°F default)
- 3 year warranty
- Dimensions: 4.3 inches tall, 1.3 inches wide, ⅞ 1.3 inches long • weighs less than .3 pounds
The Bottom Line
Mighty is the best choice if you want all the power available in a portable vaporizer. It’s by far the easiest to use of any portable we’ve tested, basically foolproof. The grinder and loading tool included are really nice additions, things I miss when using other devices. Get Crafty if you want something more pocket sized and stealthy. $350 makes Mighty the most expensive portable around, and if you read from the beginning, you understand why it’s worth it.
