Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
So 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 start 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 a scratch-resistant cover, but it still does not have any back light. If you’re using it in the dark (great for writing), having less back light won’t be too big 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 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 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, 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 what about when it isn’t? Well, we pointed out 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 since 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 Vape Pens working so well!
After some more research, we discovered that this issue could possibly be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To do this, you press and contain the “reset” button on underneath of the SOK Pen. Then click on the “change” button. This will pull the plug on the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can also select “pull the plug on micro USB” which will switch off the pen but let the e-liquid circulate.
This appears to be an issue affecting a few of the older pens. A quick search on Google returned this one, but 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 they are utilizing a lower transfer rate. Transfer rates are measured in MB/s, or million bits/sec. So if you want to get a really high quality e-liquid flavour, it could be best to buy a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, such as the Vapro Fire Wire.
This can be a problem with older pens – the micro usb doesn’t release until it really is fully saturated with e-liquid, so the battery life is very 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 really made a huge difference when filling the tank! In the end, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Although 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’re after a great gift idea for any occasion, a Smok Pen is a superb 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 as one of the most creative and unique pens available today. So whether you are having a special occasion, or just have to recharge your batteries, I would highly recommend this product.
