Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
And that means 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 begin with, the SOK Pen has no screen. So what do we must worry about then?
The SOK Pen includes 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), having less back light won’t be too big an issue for you. If you are just using it as a standard wet pen, having less screen can pose a problem. There are other pens out there which have back lights, so we’ll need to see on that one.
An Puff Bar 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 into 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 think about when it isn’t? Well, we noticed 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 since it had been with the airflow activated pen. The refilling seemed 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 issue could be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To get this done, you press and contain the “reset” button on underneath of the SOK Pen. Then click the “change” button. This will turn off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You may also select “turn off micro USB” which will switch off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This appears to be an issue affecting some of the older pens. A quick explore Google returned this one, but 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 that they are using 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 may be best to buy a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, such as the Vapro Fire Wire.
This can be 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 were able to get more juice in to 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 nearly 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, a Smok Pen is a superb 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’re having a special occasion, or just have to recharge your batteries, I’d highly recommend this product. The built quality and the fantastic flavour make this an absolute must have for anyone searching for that perfect personalised pen.
