Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
So you want to buy a SOK Pen? We’ve heard about it, we’ve used it. But do we know why it’s great? Well, to begin with, the SOK Pen has no screen. So what do we must worry about then?
The SOK Pen includes a built in screen that is protected by way of a scratch-resistant cover, nonetheless it still has no back light. If you’re deploying it in the dark (ideal for writing), having less back light won’t be too big an issue for you. If you’re just using it as a typical wet pen, the lack of screen can pose an issue. There are other pens on the market which have back lights, so we’ll have to see on that one.
An attribute we found pretty cool was the airflow system. The SOK Pen includes a fan which can be started up with the tap of a button. This clever ventilation system allows the pen to draw warm, dry air through the pen’s nib and into the reservoir which hold your liquid flavours. Cool, but does this airflow system work? It is effective, and in fact, we found that it improved the flavour of our Smok Vaporizers.
It’s all well and good, if your airflow is working, but what about when it isn’t? Well, we pointed out that with some refills, the flavour became just a little less intense. It didn’t get excellent or worse, but it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy since it had been with the airflow activated pen. The refilling appeared to affect the consistency of the flavour, as opposed to the intensity. Maybe the airflow wasn’t working so well!
After some more research, we discovered that this issue could possibly be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To do this, you press and hold the “reset” button on underneath of the SOK Pen. Then click on the “change” button. This will switch off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. Also you can select “turn off micro USB” which will turn off the pen but let the e-liquid circulate.
This seems to be an issue affecting a few of the older pens. A quick search on Google returned this one, nonetheless it was only among the last year’s models. The newer pens appear to be using the new micro usb port, however the problem is they are using a lower transfer rate. Transfer rates are measured in MB/s, or million bits/sec. So if you want to get a really high quality e-liquid flavour, it may be best to purchase a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, like the Vapro Fire Wire.
Here is the problem with older pens – the micro usb doesn’t release until it is fully saturated with e-liquid, so the battery life is quite short. By turning off the fan, switching off the fire button and turning off the SOK Pen, we could actually get more juice in to the bottle without draining the reservoir. It really made a huge difference when filling Vape Pen the tank! Ultimately, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Although it isn’t as good performing, and we did not like needing to continually replace the e-liquid, for our purposes this was enough!
If you’re after a great gift idea for just about any occasion, then a Smok Pen is a great choice. We’ve had people write us emails with compliments about our personalised pens. Most have praised the fine build and durability of the pens. They certainly surpass their name as one of the most creative and unique pens on the market today. So whether you are having a special occasion, or simply have to recharge your batteries, I would highly recommend this product. The built quality and the great flavour make this a must have for anyone looking for that perfect personalised pen.
