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 does not have any screen. So what do we must worry about then?
The SOK Pen includes a built in screen that’s protected by way of a scratch-resistant cover, but it still has no back light. If you’re deploying it in the dark (ideal for writing), the lack of back light won’t be too large 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 on the market that have back lights, so we’ll have to see on that certain.
An attribute we found pretty cool was the airflow system. The SOK Pen includes 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 found that it improved the flavour of our Smok Vaporizers.
It’s all JUUL Pods well and good, if your airflow is working, but what about when it is not? Well, we noticed that with some refills, the flavour became just a little less intense. It didn’t get excellent or worse, nonetheless 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, as opposed to the intensity. Maybe the airflow wasn’t working so well!
After some more research, we discovered that this issue could be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To do this, you press and hold 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 even select “turn off micro USB” which will switch off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This appears to be an issue affecting a number of the older pens. A quick explore 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 could be best to buy a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, including the Vapro Fire Wire.
It is 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. Although it isn’t as good performing, and we didn’t like needing 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 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.
