Storz & Bickel

Choosing a vaporizer can be a difficult decision, especially with all the high-quality models available today. Never fear, we will go through some of Storz & Bickel's finest vaporizers to help you determine the best product for you!

STORZ & BICKEL: VAPORIZER EXPERTS

Founded by Markus Storz, this German company quickly became a market leader in Europe after partnering with Jurgen Bickel. In 2003, they expanded to North America and gained traction with their world-famous “Volcano” vaporizer, which received the title of "first medical vaporizer" back in 2014. A certificate that, in 2018, STORZ & BICKEL is the only brand to hold.

After the successful release of the Volcano, STORZ & BICKEL branched out into the portable vape market, delighting vape fiends with the powerful Plenty, the handy Mighty, and the app-compatible Crafty. Let's have a quick look at each different vaporizer, and afterwards, see how they stack up against one another with the STORZ & BICKEL Vaporizer Comparison Sheet further down in this article.

VOLCANO VAPORIZER

Volcano Classic

Just by looking at the device, you already know you are in store for a top-of-the-line experience. Completely defying today’s trends, they went with a robust and heavy-duty design that asserts “power”. Once you try it, you’ll understand why the device is designed the way it is. It’ll give you potent, thick hits with a never-before-experienced smoothness.

STORZ & BICKEL have designed two versions of this monster, The Volcano Classic and The Volcano Digit. Both Volcanos are desktop models that are great centerpieces in their own right. Pop the Volcano on the coffee table, get out one of the special Volcano balloons, fill said balloon with vapour, and pass it around for effortless draws of flavourful fog.

The Volcano Digit vaporizer by Storz and Bickel is now an artifact of cannabis quality. The company has stopped producing this iconic model. Users would watch the device in amazement as it filled up large, cylindrical bags with vapor. The temperature adjustment controls set the standard for the digital era. Before you get too nostalgic, know that a new and improved version is now available! Let us introduce the Volcano Hybrid.

The new model looks similar to the previous device, with aesthetic improvements to the controls and LED touch display. The Volcano Hybrid is also much quicker to fire up. You and the accompanying circle of fellow vapers will only have to wait 1–2 minutes for a bag full of fumes, although you may opt to use the large inhalation tube provided.

The most distinct improvement to the Volcano Hybrid is integration with smartphones. Users can control the device using the S&B App available on both Android and iOS. The Volcano Hybrid is a step forward in the desktop vape industry. It’s where large social devices meet modern technology.

PLENTY VAPORIZER

Plenty Vaporizer

The Plenty Vaporizer is STORZ & BICKEL’s first portable vaporizer, as it was released before the Crafty and the Mighty. This device is best described as “home-portable”. While it may be labelled as portable, its 30cm height disqualifies it from being a pocket-sized vape. However, it is definitely a great addition to your living room sessions, producing super thick vapour from a unit that is easily passed around the vape circle.

This device is fully mechanical, including the temperature display, increasing the durability of the vaporizer. It may look like an intimidating object at first, but with its illustrated quick-start guide, you’ll be vaping within the first few minutes of it arriving on your doorstep.

MIGHTY VAPORIZER

Mighty Vaporizer

The Mighty Vaporizer combines portability and maximum power in the perfect manner. Compact, but larger than its Crafty counterpart, this product allows for two batteries, a heating chamber, and a cooling unit on top. How long these two batteries will last depends on how high the temperature is set.

While the outer parts are composed of mostly plastic, its build quality remains unquestionable. The grid pattern on most of the device’s surface allows for more effective cooling. This is further enhanced by having the batteries separated from the device’s heating chamber. It’s an overall great vaporizer.

CRAFTY VAPORIZER

Crafty Vaporizer

With a much more travel-friendly footprint, the Crafty Vaporizer still allows for powerful hits on-the-go. The IOS and Android app gives you a wide set of controls. This, without the extra screen and buttons on the device, will allow for quick and remote control of your temperature, as well as other settings.

The plastic mouthpiece will surprise a lot of connoisseurs with how it hardly affects the flavour of your herb. Its quality matches the standards of the Mighty. The Crafty might only have one battery, but it allows for the same range of temperatures as the Mighty.
