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 start with, the SOK Pen has no screen. So what do we have to worry about then?
The SOK Pen includes a built in screen that is protected by a scratch-resistant cover, but it still does not have any back light. If you’re using it in the dark (ideal for writing), the lack of back light won’t be too large an issue for you. If you’re just using it as a standard wet pen, the lack of screen can pose a problem. There are other pens on the market that have back lights, so we’ll have to see on that certain.
A feature we found pretty cool was the airflow system. The SOK Pen has 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 in to the reservoir which hold your liquid flavours. Cool, but does this airflow system work? It is effective, and in fact, we discovered 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 noticed that with some refills, the flavour became a little less intense. It didn’t get very good or worse, but it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy since it had been with the airflow activated pen. The refilling seemed 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 problem could possibly be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To get this done, 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. You can even select “switch off micro USB” which will switch off the pen but let the e-liquid circulate.
This seems to be an issue affecting a number of the older pens. A quick explore Google returned this one, nonetheless it was only on the list of 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. If you want to get a really high quality e-liquid flavour, it can be best to buy a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, such as the Vapro Fire Wire.
It 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 were able to get more juice into the bottle without draining the reservoir. It really made an enormous difference when filling the tank! vapinger.com Ultimately, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Though it isn’t as good performing, and we did not like needing to continually replace the e-liquid, for the purposes this was enough!
If you’re after a great gift idea for just about any occasion, then a Smok Pen is a superb choice. We’ve had people write us emails with compliments about our personalised pens. Most have praised the fine build and durability of these pens. They certainly surpass their name as one of the most creative and unique pens available today. So whether you’re having a special occasion, or simply need to recharge your batteries, I’d highly recommend this product. The built quality and the fantastic flavour make this an absolute must have for anyone searching for that perfect personalised pen.
