What's a Mighty+?
For the uninitiated, the original Mighty vaporizer is a feat of German engineering that is widely considered to be the best portable vaporizer available. While we don't believe there is one best vaporizer for everyone, if there were, the Mighty would be a strong contender.
It uses a mix of convection and conduction heating (Storz & Bickel patented hybrid heating for vapes), has full temperature control and is known for its ease of use. It has a unique mouthpiece with an integrated cooling unit, and a shut-off feature that adapts to your style.
The Mighty+ might be the most anticipated vaporizer ever. It's been seven years since the original Mighty's release, and we'll have a full vaporizer review of the Mighty+ soon, as well as a Mighty vs Mighty+ blog post!
Mighty+ stands on its own!
Remember how the original, high quality Mighty dry herb vaporizer couldn’t stand on its own, spawning an entire industry of third party stand makers? The Mighty+ has little feet to keep it from falling, and you can load it without a third hand.
Could it taste better?
The Mighty+ features a ceramic coated filling chamber, instead of polished aluminum. I can’t wait to get my hands on this to see if the vapor quality is better than the original. I know it still uses a combination of conduction and convection heating, and I expect the bowl to have the same color as the filling chamber insert for the Volcano Hybrid, which is also ceramic coated.
60-second heat-up time
One of the more common complaints about the original Mighty vape was the slow heat up time that could take as long as two minutes, or longer, depending on what temperature settings were used. This time around we’ll only have to wait one minute, thanks to a lighter heat exchanger. That’s still a little slow by today’s standards, but Mighty+ lovers will surely point to the more potent first hit from the extra heat-up time.
Mighty+ has better power management
Even though it doesn’t have removable lithium-ion batteries, a lot has been improved on the power side since the Mighty vaporizer. The Mighty+ vape features USB-C charging instead of the barrel port charger on the older model - no more power adapter! You can now charge your Mighty+ almost anywhere, and it will charge up to 80% in just 40 minutes! It also features passthrough charging - plug the Mighty+ in and use it while it charges! Overall battery life appears to be the same as the original Mighty.
The Mighty+ is the first ever dry herb vaporizer to gain UL certification. Sleep easy in the knowledge that a third party safety certification company has inspected the electrical, battery, charging, and heating systems. Hopefully this becomes a trend!
Triple-click for a quick boost
Storz & Bickel calls this the Superbooster, but it’s not a new feature. It’s standard on the latest version of the Mighty vaporizer. Triple-click the power button to boost the temperature by 27°F (15°C) from the current set temperature.
The marketing for this feature is confusing. It says the boost is 15°C, or 59°F (60°F if you listen to Jurgen in the Keynote), but this has to be wrong. I’ll be shocked if it doesn’t work just like the current Mighty, or the Crafty+ vaporizer which has three on-board temperatures, all 15°C, or 27°F, apart.
Priced at $399
The Mighty+ vaporizer will debut at $399. That’s a lot of money for a portable vape, but is the same price the original Mighty released at in 2014. The Mighty will stay at $349 for now.
