Mighty Vaporizer Review 2020 update – Is it still worth the price?
German engineering is world famous when it comes to designing sleek, new, innovative products in many industries. And no, it’s not just automobiles like Mercedes and BMW. Proving this engineering excellence are German manufacturers Storz and Bickel, makers of the Mighty Vaporizer. The Mighty’s closest relative is the Crafty, which was at one time one of the most popular portable vaporizers on the market. The Mighty has a bowl for dry herbs that is double in size of that of the Crafty, and its battery lasts more than twice as long. Storz and Bickel are also known for their plug in units, the Plenty and desktop based Volcano Vaporizer, both intended for home use.
One knock on this particular vaporizer might be that some dry herb enthusiasts find the Mighty is a bit too large to enjoy discreet vaping because of its size – the unit weighs a half a pound and is five and a half inches long by three inches wide. It definitely does live up to its name of the Mighty to some people. If you aren’t all that worried about personal and discreet vaping and are looking for a big, tough, powerful device – you might love the Mighty.
Top Quality Battery
Some vape experts consider the unit to have a top five battery of any other vape in the game today. That’s something that Storz and Bickel are no doubt proud of. Most vape users tell us that the Mighty lasts them all day – from when they leave the house in the morning until they get home. And there’s no skimping on full sessions that give you big, rich clouds of delicious vapor.
The Mighty features up and down buttons on the front of the vape that is super easy to use. This unit is one of the best in the business when it comes to temperature consistency. Just select your desired vaping temp with the adjustable presets, wait a minute or two for the unit to vibrate telling you it’s heated up, and enjoy your delicious vape hit.
As we mentioned before, the dual battery that comes with the Mighty is made of reliable, high quality lithium ion. The battery that comes with the Mighty can last you for your entire day, especially if you ration your hits wisely. We have noticed that the mighty lasts a full ninety minutes of continuous use. You will get a solid 7-9 sessions out of this portable vaporizer more than likely. A nice addition is the fact that you can also take some vape hits while it’s charging on the power adapter.
Like the other vapes from Storz and Bickel the Crafty and the Plenty, the Mighty portable vaporizer uses a combination of convection and conduction heat. Convection heating allows for thorough heating that wastes minimal amounts of dry herb. Meanwhile, conduction heating delivers thick vape clouds from the first time you take a toke. Not to mention the cooling system of the Mighty portable vaporizer, which also ensures each vape toke you take, will be of minimal harshness and maximum tastiness. When you marry the two, your dry herb vaping experience is as awesome as possible. The Mighty comes with a tool that helps you pack the perfect dry herb bowl in the chamber for vape lovers on the go. Everything is ready to go out of the box.
Even by todays standards in 2020, the Mighty battery is pretty solid and while they aren’t removable, a full charge will easily give you more than a full day of vaping frequently.
The Mighty uses a square screen powered by LCD. Displayed on the bottom of the screen is the temperature you want to reach, which is shown in white numbers. And on the top of the screen, you’ll see the current temperature represented by orange numbers. The temperature control buttons can be found on both sides of the LCD screen. The Mighty has a temperature range of 104 degrees Fahrenheit to 410 degrees Fahrenheit.
What Kind of Accessories Come with the Mighty Vaporizer?
Directly out of the box, your Mighty portable vaporizer will come with a sturdy cleaning brush, a nice grinder, and extra sealing rings that come in handy to make sure you get the thickest hits possible every single time. As mentioned previously, the Mighty also comes with a tool that helps you pack up the chamber for a nice and fat bowl of dry herb vaping anywhere you go. The warranty on this unit is a bit short, only two years. There are other manufacturers who offer longer warranties.
Using the Mighty
To pack the bowl, you just twist the vape a bit by grasping the cooling unit and filling up the heating chamber with your dry herb. The chamber is made of stainless steel. Once you grind up your herb, just fill the chamber and secure it back onto the same groove as the cooling unit that you took off. Once the stopper on the inside is taken out, your dried herb swiftly enters the chamber.
You will want to fill the heating chamber all the way with your dry herb. Otherwise, your dry herb will scatter throughout the chamber and you won’t get any good hits. Even though the Mighty is a big vape itself, the chamber isn’t the biggest. 0.1 gram of fluffy dry herbs will fill up the entire thing.
How’s the Vapor Quality?
We think that the vapor quality of the Mighty is top notch. Some vape enthusiasts do get a bit turned off by the fact that the swiveling mouthpiece is made of plastic, but we don’t think it impacts the vapor quality at all. You get smooth, delicious tasting hits every time. In fact, there are a lot of portable vaporizer lovers that swear the mighty offers vape hits on par with desktop versions – which is saying something.
How does the Mighty stand up in 2020 vs other units though?
Well, for one it still rocks! Though there has been a ton of innovation since its original release a handful of years back, few units can still match the raw performance of the Mighty. Other units to look into would include the Utillian 722, and custom/unique units like the Tetra P80 and Splinter/Splinter Z. As far as portables though very few can still match how the Mighty performs!
If you’re looking for that raw simplicity, grab either the Mighty or Crafty+, you really wouldn’t be disappointed. The MiniVap is an often forgotten yet high-quality unit which even surpasses the Mighty, though is larger and more expensive.
In our opinion, the Mighty is hands down one of the best of its kind on the market today when it comes to vapor quality. The lack of discreet tokes, the relatively small chamber and the short-term warranty might be drawbacks for this unit. But if you’re looking for a portable vaporizer with the highest vapor quality and consistency possible, you might want to look the way of the Mighty.
The Mighty vape in 2020 is still a behemoth and one of the best portable dry herb vapes out there. We’re a little sad there isn’t much other stiff competition so fingers crossed that someone pushes the boundaries of innovation.
