Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
Which means you want to buy a SOK Pen? We’ve heard about it, we’ve used it. But do we realize 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’s protected by a scratch-resistant cover, but it still has no back light. If you’re using it in the dark (great for writing), the lack of back light won’t be too large an issue for you. If you are just using it as a standard wet pen, having less screen can pose an issue. There are other pens on the market that have back lights, so we’ll have 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 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 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 is not? Well, we pointed out that with some refills, the flavour became just a little less intense. It didn’t get very good or worse, but it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy as it had been with the airflow activated pen. The refilling seemed 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 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 the “change” button. This will switch off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can even select “pull the plug on micro USB” which Vape 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, but 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 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 could be best to purchase a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, such as the Vapro Fire Wire.
This is 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 very 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 certainly made an enormous difference when filling the tank! Ultimately, 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!
If you’re after a great gift idea for just about 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 the pens. They certainly surpass their name as one of the most creative and unique pens on the market today. So whether you’re having a special occasion, or simply need to recharge your batteries, I would highly recommend this product. The built quality and the fantastic flavour make this an absolute must have for anyone looking for that perfect personalised pen.
