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 has a built in screen that is protected by way of a scratch-resistant cover, but it still has no back light. If you’re using it in the dark (ideal for writing), the lack of back light won’t be too big an issue for you. If you’re Vape Pen just using it as a standard wet pen, having less screen can pose a problem. There are other pens on the market that have back lights, so we’ll need to see on that certain.
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 air flow 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 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 a little less intense. It didn’t get very good or worse, but it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy since it have 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 even more research, we discovered that this problem could possibly be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To do this, you press and hold the “reset” button on the bottom of the SOK Pen. Then click the “change” button. This will turn off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can also select “pull the plug on micro USB” which will turn off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This is apparently an issue affecting a number of the older pens. A quick explore Google returned this one, but it was only on the list of last year’s models. The newer pens seem to be utilizing the new micro usb port, but the problem is that they are utilizing a lower transfer rate. Transfer rates are measured in MB/s, or million bits/sec. If you want to get an extremely high quality e-liquid flavour, it could be best to purchase a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, including the Vapro Fire Wire.
This 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 very short. By turning off the fan, switching off the fire button and turning off the SOK Pen, we were able to get more juice in to the bottle without draining the reservoir. It certainly made a huge difference when filling the tank! In the end, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Although it isn’t nearly as good performing, and we did not like having to continually replace the e-liquid, for the purposes this was enough!
great gift idea for any occasion, a Smok Pen is a great choice. We have had people write us emails with compliments about our personalised pens. Most have praised the fine build and durability of these pens. They certainly live up to their name as one of the most creative and unique pens available today. So whether you’re having a special occasion, or just have to recharge your batteries, I would highly recommend this product. The built quality and the fantastic flavour make this a must have for anyone searching for that perfect personalised pen.
