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 begin with, the SOK Pen has no screen. So what do we have to be worried about then?
The SOK Pen includes a built in screen that’s protected by way of a scratch-resistant cover, nonetheless it still does not have any back light. If you’re deploying 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 typical wet pen, having less screen can pose an issue. There are other pens out there that have back lights, so we’ll have 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 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 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 what about when it isn’t? Well, we noticed that with some refills, the flavour became a little less intense. It didn’t get excellent or worse, but 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, as opposed to the intensity. Maybe the airflow wasn’t working so well!
After even more research, we discovered that this problem could possibly 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 turn 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 seem to be using 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 an extremely high quality e-liquid flavour, it might be best to purchase 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 Smok Novo 2 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 into the bottle without draining the reservoir. It certainly made a huge difference when filling the tank! In the end, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Although it isn’t as good performing, and we didn’t like having to continually replace the e-liquid, for our purposes this is enough!
If you are looking for 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 the pens. They certainly surpass their name among the most creative and unique pens available today.
