Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
Which means you want to buy a SOK Pen? We’ve heard of it, Smok Novo 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 have to worry 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 (ideal for writing), the lack of back light won’t be too big an issue for you. If you’re just using it as a typical wet pen, the lack of screen can pose a problem. There are other pens out there that 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 switched on 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 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 is not? 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 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 be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To get this done, 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 will turn 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 among the 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 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 quite 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 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 did not like having to continually replace the e-liquid, for the purposes this is enough!
If you’re after a great gift idea for just about 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 these pens. They certainly live up to their name among the most creative and unique pens on the market today. So whether you’re having a special occasion, or just need to recharge your batteries, I’d highly recommend the product. The built quality and the fantastic flavour make this a must have for anyone looking for that perfect personalised pen.
