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 realize 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 has a built in screen that is protected by way of a scratch-resistant cover, but it still does not have any 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’re just using it as a typical wet pen, the lack of screen can pose a problem. There are other pens on the market 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 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, 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 think about when it is not? Well, we noticed that with some refills, the flavour became a little less intense. It Puff Bar Flavors didn’t get excellent or worse, nonetheless it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy as it have 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 problem could possibly be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To get this done, you press and contain the “reset” button on the bottom 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 is apparently an issue affecting a number 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 using 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 can be best to buy a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, such as 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, so 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! In the end, 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 our purposes this was enough!
If you’re after a great gift idea for just about any occasion, a Smok Pen is a great choice. We have 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 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.
