Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
Which 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 does not have any screen. So what do we have to worry about then?
The SOK Pen includes a built in screen that’s protected by 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 large 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 out there that have back lights, so we’ll need to see on that certain.
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 air flow 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, vapinger.com but does this airflow system work? It is effective, 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 very good or worse, but it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy since 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 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 is apparently an issue affecting a number of the older pens. A quick search on Google returned this one, nonetheless it was only on the list of last year’s models. The newer pens appear 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 a really high quality e-liquid flavour, it can be best to buy a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, including the Vapro Fire Wire.
This is actually the problem with older pens – the micro usb doesn’t release until it 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 certainly made an enormous difference when filling the tank! Ultimately, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Though it isn’t nearly 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 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 surpass their name as one of the most creative and unique pens available today. So whether you are having a special occasion, or simply have to recharge your batteries, I would highly recommend this product. The built quality and the great flavour make this a must have for anyone searching for that perfect personalised pen.
