Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
And that means you need it 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 must worry about then?
The SOK Pen includes a built in screen that’s protected by a scratch-resistant cover, but it still does not have any 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’re just using it as a standard wet pen, the lack of screen can pose an issue. There are other pens on the market 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 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 works well, 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 think about when it isn’t? Well, we pointed out that with some refills, the flavour became just a little less intense. It didn’t get excellent or worse, nonetheless it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy as it had 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 contain 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 also select “switch off micro USB” which will switch off the pen but let the e-liquid circulate.
This is apparently an issue affecting a few of the older pens. A quick search on Google returned this one, nonetheless it was only among the last year’s models. The newer pens appear to be utilizing 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. If you want to get a really high quality e-liquid flavour, it could be best to buy 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 quite short. By turning off the fan, switching off the fire button and turning off Juul Compatible Pods the SOK Pen, we could actually get more juice in to the bottle without draining the reservoir. It certainly 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 did not like needing to continually replace the e-liquid, for our purposes this is enough!
If you’re after a great gift idea for just about any occasion, then 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 the pens. They certainly surpass their name among the most creative and unique pens available today. So whether you are having a special occasion, or simply need to recharge your batteries, I would highly recommend this product.
