Storz & Bickel are based in the German town of Tuttlingen, it is a fairly normal, nondescript town except for the fact that it boasts an unusually high number of surgical equipment companies. There are over six hundred such companies located in Tuttlingen and they make over half of the world’s surgical equipment. Needless to say, surgical equipment needs to be precisely engineered and carefully manufactured, and perhaps the town’s commitment to that kind of craftsmanship influenced Storz & Bickel’s design philosophy.
That is because their vaporizers boast the same kind of precision and attention to detail that you would expect in the very best medical equipment. That was evident in their very first vaporizer, the Volcano—now called the Volcano Classic—because it’s design and engineering has persisted all the way to their latest vaporizer, the Volcano Hybrid. That is proof that they got the design right the first time around. In fact, that could be said about all of their vaporizers because the Crafty and Mighty are still some of the best weed vapes around despite their being around for longer than many more recent vapes.
Storz & Bickel also makes unique vaporizers like the Plenty, a dry herb vaporizer that is somewhere in between a desktop vaporizer and a handheld vaporizer. There is nothing else like it in the vaporizer market. Their innovation and expertise go beyond just designing great vaporizers; they were the first company to use Bluetooth integration in their vaporizers so that vapers could use a smartphone app to control their devices. This practice is now ubiquitous in the vaping world as many high-end vapes use smartphone apps. In fact, with the Volcano Hybrid, Storz & Bickel have arguably perfected the smartphone app.
They are also known for their clever accessories, like the dosing capsules and filling aids, that make using their vapes even easier. Ultimately, Storz & Bickel are not just pioneers of the vaping world, they are among the best of the best of vaporizer manufacturers.
