Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
So you need it a SOK Pen? We’ve heard of it, we’ve used it. But do we know why it’s great? Well, to start with, the SOK Pen does not have any 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 deploying it in the dark (ideal for writing), having less back light won’t be too big an issue for you. If you are just using it as a standard wet pen, the lack of screen can pose a problem. There are other pens out there which have back lights, so we’ll need to see on that one.
A feature 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 works well, 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 think 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 have been with the airflow activated pen. The refilling appeared to affect the consistency of the flavour, rather than the intensity. Maybe the airflow wasn’t working so well!
After some more research, we discovered that this problem could 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 switch off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can even select “turn off micro USB” which will switch off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This appears to be an issue affecting a number of the older pens. A quick search on 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, but the problem is they are utilizing a lower transfer rate. Transfer rates are measured in MB/s, or million bits/sec. So if you want to get an extremely high quality e-liquid flavour, it could be best to buy a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, like the Vapro Fire Wire.
This is Smok Novo 2 actually the problem with older pens – the micro usb doesn’t release until it really is fully saturated with e-liquid, therefore 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 into the bottle without draining the reservoir. It really made a huge difference when filling the tank! Ultimately, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Although it isn’t as good performing, and we didn’t like needing to continually replace the e-liquid, for the purposes this is enough!
If you’re after a great gift idea for any occasion, 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 these pens. They certainly live up to their name among the most creative and unique pens on the market today. So whether you are having a special occasion, or just need to recharge your batteries, I would highly recommend the product. The built quality and the fantastic flavour make this a must have for anyone searching for that perfect personalised pen.
