Review: Mighty Vaporizer
- Video Transcript
- What’s up everyone? This is Keagan for TorontoV TV. Let’s have a look at the Mighty vaporizer, one of the very first portable vaporizers to be released by Storz and Bickel, the makers of the famous and ever popular volcano vaporizer. First I’ll tell you what’s in the box, then we’re getting to how it works.
Inside the package you’ll find the Mighty vaporizer, one power adapter, one liquid pad, three spare screens, a cleaning brush, a herb mill, one filling aid, a set of spare seal rings, and if you order with us you can also choose to receive a free Zeus Bolt Grinder made of aircraft-grade aluminum.
The first thing you’re going to want to do with your unit is sterilize it. To do that, press and hold the power button to turn the unit on, then use the up button to set the unit to its max temperature setting. Once you’ve done that continue pressing the power button every 45 seconds or so to keep the auto shut-off from engaging. Leave the unit run for about 15 to 20 minutes. This will get rid of all of the manufacturing oils that may have gotten inside of the unit as a result of putting it together. Once you’ve done that the unit is ready for your first use.
To load your vaporizer you’re gonna need two things. The first thing is freshly ground botanical. To grind up your botanical we always suggest using the Zeus Bolt Grinder. It’s been perfectly calibrated to grind up your botanical to the perfect consistency. That means it’s fine enough that it can be properly vaporized inside of your unit but not so fine that it slips through the screens. The second thing you’re going to need to do is twist off the top piece to expose the heating chamber. Once you’ve opened up the heating chamber, take your botanical and fill up the heating chamber all the way to the top. If you don’t intend to fill the heating chamber all the way to the top, put as much as you’d like then use the aroma pad to fill the rest of the space inside of the heating chamber. Once you’re done take the top back on and twist it to lock it in place.
Using the digital display you can set the Mighty’s temperature anywhere between 40°C and 210°C. For best results we suggest vaporizing dried botanical between 190°C and 210°C. For use of extracts we suggest vaporizing at 210°C. Once the unit is loaded to use the Mighty vaporizer press and hold power button to turn the unit on. Once the unit is on use the up and down arrows to set your desired temperature. When the said temperature is reached, the unit will give short double vibration. Next, swivel out the mouthpiece and take nice, long draws to enjoy your vapor. The unit has an auto shut-off which will engage after 60 seconds of the unit not being activated. So it may be necessary to press the power button every 45 seconds or so to keep the unit from turning itself off.
To wrap this video up I’d like to tell you guys about some of the impressive features of the Mighty vaporizer that make it such an awesome unit. The first is that it’s got great battery life. Because it’s powered by two lithium ion batteries you can vaporize for a really long time without having to worry about recharging again. The second is that it’s extremely efficient. It uses convection and conduction heating simultaneously to maximize how efficiently it extracts vapor from your botanical so you get amazing vapor right from the very first draw. The last thing is the precise temperature control. Using the Mighty’s digital display you can set temperature down to a degree so you can get vapor that perfectly matches your needs.
This vaporizer is a great choice for kind of Sirs who want a unit that delivers top of the line vapor experience with great battery life that they can use around the house.
I’m Keagan for TorontoV TV. We hope you enjoyed this video and we hope you find it useful. And for all you connoisseurs out there: “Keep vaping!”
Using the Mighty is uber easy – just turn the unit on with the orange power button on the side, fill it with your botanical, set your temperature with the plus and minus buttons next to the display and wait for the unit to reach your chosen temperature before you enjoy!
The display will also tell you what temperature the unit is at, the temperature you’ve set it to and the battery charge level so you can stay on top of your session easily. If you would like to watch the “how it works” video, you can do so on the Mighty product page.
The Mighty is capable of reaching a wide range of temperatures and can be set anywhere between 40 degrees Celsius and 210 degrees Celsius.
Doing so is a simple matter of using the plus and minus buttons near the display while the unit is on to set the desired temperature.
The vapor quality of the Mighty is outstanding. The plastic mouth piece might be cause for concern for some connoisseurs, but this plastic stands up well to heat, doesn’t add a plastic flavor to your vapor and it’s cool, smooth and satisfying.
They’ve also found a way to keep the airflow open to make draws easy without compromising vapor thickness.The high expectations you’d have for a Storz and Bickel unit are met with ease when it comes to vapor quality.
Now if you’re looking to get the best vaporization experience possible with the Mighty we’d like to recommend pairing your unit with the new vapor cooling device from ZEUSArsenal, the ZEUS Iceborn.
This revolutionary device actually increases the vapor quality of your Mighty by 2 points, dramatically cooling it down for smooth frosty draws. It’s also much more efficient than other filtration devices that use water, so you can get even bigger vapor clouds! Take a look!
There is a lot of plastic used in the construction of the unit, but it is all well machined, durable, and feels very high quality.
The grating around the unit serves to efficiently cool the unit so that it doesn’t get hot while in use and keeps the battery as cool as possible.
Despite the tight fit of all the pieces, especially the mouth piece, it does come apart with relative ease to make cleaning a pretty simple matter.
This unit has 2 rechargeable lithium-ion batteries powering the unit, which makes for longer battery life than many units on the market. The length of time you can go on a full charge will largely depend on how high your temperature is, but the unit in general has an above average battery life.
The unit’s batteries are also separated from the unit’s heating chamber, which keeps the batteries from being heated by the warmth in the heating chamber. This will extend the overall life of the battery and is a very unique design feature that not many other units have been able to manage well, if at all.
Regardless, when your batteries are in need of replacement you will have to send the unit in to be serviced, which could end up being very costly. Changing the batteries yourself would be difficult at best as the screws used for the body are not standard screws and there’s no telling what you might find (including a voided warranty) should you open it up yourself.
This is one category where the Mighty takes some damage. Because of its size and weight, it’s not the best unit to carry around with you to enjoy on the go.
The extra battery ends up making it too wide and display makes it too long to really put in your pocket easily and walk around. This is a shame because with the kind of vapor quality you can expect from this unit, it would be great to take it everywhere you needed or wanted to go.
Ease of Use
Using this gadget couldn’t be much easier. All it takes is a few pushes of a button to get this unit started and you’re ready to enjoy your vapor. The challenge is in using the unit for longer than a minute as the auto shut-off will turn the unit off if you don’t press any buttons for sixty seconds.
If that happens, it’s simple and quick to turn the unit back on, but it is a bit of a bother. To avoid this, simply press the power button every so often (at least once every 59 seconds) to keep the unit from turning off.
This is another unfortunate fact about this unit – it’s not discreet. The size of the unit makes it impossible to conceal it completely in your hand and the display is a bit attention grabbing.
This means the unit is easy to see and pretty interesting to look at, which the opposite of what you’d want when having a quiet session outside.
This unit has some great features that are very unique and sports some amazing vapor quality, but the trade-off when it comes to the display and the extra battery don’t benefit the unit that much for what it’s giving up.
This unit is still an amazing unit and if you’re looking for a portable unit that’s for home use, is top of the line, isn’t very discreet or portable and you have the money to spare, the Mighty is just right.
