Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
And that means you need it a SOK Pen? We’ve heard about 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 be worried about then?
The SOK Pen includes a built in screen that’s protected by a scratch-resistant cover, nonetheless it still has no back light. If you’re deploying 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 standard wet pen, having less screen can pose a problem. 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 has a fan which can be switched on with the tap of a Puff Bar Flavors 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 isn’t? Well, we noticed that with some refills, the flavour became just a little less intense. It didn’t get very good or worse, nonetheless 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, 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 underneath of the SOK Pen. Then click the “change” button. This will switch off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can also select “turn off micro USB” which will turn off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This seems to be an issue affecting some of the older pens. A quick explore Google returned this one, but it was only among the last year’s models. The newer pens seem 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 uses a higher transfer rate, such as the Vapro Fire Wire.
It is the problem with older pens – the micro usb doesn’t release until it really 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 were able to get more juice in to 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. Though it isn’t nearly as good performing, and we did not like needing to continually replace the e-liquid, for our purposes this is enough!
If you are looking for a great gift idea for any occasion, then 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 live up to their name among the most creative and unique pens on the market today. So whether you are having a special occasion, or simply have to recharge your batteries, I would highly recommend the product. The built quality and the fantastic flavour make this an absolute must have for anyone looking for that perfect personalised pen.
