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 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’s protected by way of a scratch-resistant cover, but it still does not have any back light. If you’re using it in the dark (great for writing), having less back light won’t be too big an issue for you. If you are just using it as a typical 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 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 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 pointed out that with some refills, the flavour became a little less intense. It didn’t Vape Shop get excellent or worse, nonetheless it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy as 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 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 pull the plug on the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can also select “turn off micro USB” which will switch off the pen but allow 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 utilizing the new micro usb port, however 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 a really high quality e-liquid flavour, it may be best to buy a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, like the Vapro Fire Wire.
This can be a 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 in to the bottle without draining the reservoir. It really made an enormous difference when filling the tank! Ultimately, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Though it isn’t as good performing, and we didn’t 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 these pens. They certainly surpass their name among the most creative and unique pens on the market today.
