Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
Which means you want to buy 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 does not have any screen. So what do we must worry about then?
The SOK Pen has a built in screen that’s protected by way of a scratch-resistant cover, nonetheless it still does not have any back light. If you’re deploying it in the dark (great 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, the lack of screen can pose a problem. There are other pens out there which 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 into the reservoir which hold your liquid flavours. Cool, but does this airflow system work? It is effective, and in fact, we found that it improved the vapinger.com 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, 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 even more research, we discovered that this issue could possibly 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 the “change” button. This will pull the plug on the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. Also you can select “switch off micro USB” which will turn off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This appears to be an issue affecting some 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, but the problem is they are utilizing a lower transfer rate. Transfer rates are measured in MB/s, or million bits/sec. If you want to get an extremely high quality e-liquid flavour, it might be best to purchase a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, such as the Vapro Fire Wire.
Here 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 very 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 an enormous difference when filling the tank! Ultimately, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Although it isn’t nearly as good performing, and we didn’t like having to continually replace the e-liquid, for our purposes this was 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 need to recharge your batteries, I would highly recommend this product. The built quality and the fantastic flavour make this a must have for anyone searching for that perfect personalised pen.
