Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
So 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 have to worry about then?
The SOK Pen has a built in screen that is protected by a scratch-resistant cover, nonetheless it still has no 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, having less screen can pose a problem. There are other pens on the market which have back lights, so we’ll have to see on that one.
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 into the reservoir which hold your liquid flavours. Cool, but does this airflow system work? It is effective, 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 noticed that with some refills, the flavour became 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, rather than the intensity. Maybe the airflow wasn’t working so well!
After some more research, we discovered that this problem could be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To get this done, you press and hold the “reset” button on the bottom of the SOK Pen. Then click the “change” button. This will pull the plug on the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You may also select “turn off micro USB” which will switch off the pen but let the e-liquid circulate.
This is apparently an issue affecting a few of the older pens. A quick explore 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, however the problem is they are using a lower transfer rate. Transfer rates are measured in MB/s, or million bits/sec. So if you want to get an extremely high quality e-liquid flavour, it could be best to purchase a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, including the Vapro Fire Wire.
This is actually 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 could actually 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 as good performing, and we didn’t like having to continually replace the e-liquid, for our purposes this was enough!
great gift idea for just about any occasion, then 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 the pens. They certainly surpass their name as one of the most creative and unique pens available today. So whether you’re having a special occasion, or Disposable Vape simply have to recharge your batteries, I’d highly recommend the product. The built quality and the great flavour make this a must have for anyone looking for that perfect personalised pen.
