Storz and Bickel are a top-market name in vaporizers whose name radiates power. The Mighty, as well as its little brother, The Crafty are known to be two of the strongest portable vaporizers on the planet and their industry changing desktop vaporizer, The Volcano, is no slouch either as it has a quality that just hasn’t been topped since it was released in the early 2000’s.
And now they have their Plenty Vaporizer, a whip-styled device which bridges the gap between portable and desktop, sporting the bulky power and vapor production of something similar to the volcano, but in a much sleeker package. It still needs to be plugged into a wall, but at least now you can take it to a friends house or a party with ease. The technology on this thing is amazing, as, for a desktop model, it sports and incredibly fast heat up time using it’s 100% convection chamber. The time is so fast, the Plenty is ready to go almost as soon as you push the power button and will beat absolutely any other desktop model when it comes to speed.
When using the Plenty, there’s one thing people talk about, those vapor clouds. Storz and Bickel are all about power, and the Plenty vaporizer is power among the powerful, and the clouds this thing puts out just have to be seen to be believed. One of the coolest things about the Plenty vaporizer is that it properly looks like a piece of machinery. Like something straight from under the hood of a car. When you’re taking that draw, all of that Storz and Bickel power hits you and really feel like this is a piece worthy or respect. True, 100% convection heating within Storz and Bickel’s trademark quality builds.
With the convection heat comes an incredibly low draw resistance. You’d think having to pull from a large coil would make it a little more difficult to pull in some way but you’d be wrong. Apart of this, how strong the convection system is plays a huge part as it’s able to just power through the distance the vapour has to travel. The coil itself also seems quite strange at first glance. It can only be bent so far in one direction, letting the strong coil remain the same diameter along its length, which stops the air-flow from kinking, so actually it’s a pretty interesting design feature.
All this power can probably be attributed to its small size. Since the Plenty Vaporizer is so small, there’s not a lot of room for any extras or comforts, so they’ve pretty much made the entire body one massive heating block.
But What About That Taste
Absolutely delicious. No other words to describe it. The secret here comes from the fact that the Plenty’ chamber is wide instead of long, like a hockey puck. What this does is really allows each of the herbs to vaporize within a chamber with excellent convection airflow, touching each of your flowers at once because they have a higher surface area over the heating element. It really is just as good if not better than the other higher quality vapes on the market. The cooling coil mouthpiece the vape comes with also does wonders. With it, the vapor really has a chance to chill and become less harsh as it hits your mouth. This only adds to the overall pleasure.
A Portable Desktop?
Okay, now give me a minute to explain what I’m about to say - The Plenty Vaporizer is pretty discreet to transport around. Now, obviously you can’t exactly call this a portable vaporizer, but in terms of a good desktop model that you can take with you to a friend’s house if they're having a party, it’s one of the better models.
Desktops have the luxury of making themselves big and powerful and are usually quite blocky, like the pyramid shape of the Volcano, but the Plenty has made itself nice and compact, and a lot thinner which is great for when you have to throw it into a bag. What’s more, the Plenty has a standard coiled mouthpiece instead of the whips or bags or other necessary accessories the other vapes have, meaning you won’t have much to carry much else with you. Now, if you’re thinking of going portable, consider a portable vape because at the end of the day, the Plenty is a desktop model, but if push comes to shove and you really want to move it, it’s nice to know it won’t be much of a hassle.
The Right Way To Use It
One complaint people usually have about the Plenty is that it heats up in your hand and can be very hot to the touch if your session is running long and that the biggest problem with the vape is that it can’t seem to remain upright on your table. Though the plastic the body is made from is very heat resistant plastic, this can be true, but a surprising amount of people don’t seem to realize that you don’t necessarily have to hold it.
The reason for this is simple; Not enough people are reading the Plenty instruction manual. If you did you would see that the cleaning brush the Plenty comes with actually doubles as a stand to keep the vape upright, letting you vape from a table surface with ease, and there’s still so many people on the internet who don’t realize this. If you either have or are thinking about getting yourself a Plenty and If you take anything from this blog post it should be that. Storz and Bickel have given you all of the tools for an ideal vaping session. You just need to make sure you know them.
Despite the bulky, power drill like design of the vape, all of the parts come apart simple enough. This allows cleaning to be a simple, effortless job, and the brush you get with the vape isn’t just good at propping this monster up, it also does a good job at clearing it out. Luckily, since the vape has such a strong air-flow to it, cleaning isn’t something you’ll have to do often, just every once and a while.
