Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
So 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 has no screen. So what do we must be worried about then?
The SOK Pen includes a built in screen that’s protected by a scratch-resistant cover, nonetheless it still does not have any back light. If you’re deploying it in the dark (ideal for writing), having less back light won’t be too large an issue for you. If you are just using it as a typical wet pen, the lack of screen can pose an issue. There are other pens on the market that 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 has a fan which can be switched on with the tap of a button. This Smok Novo 2 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 is not? Well, we noticed that with some refills, the flavour became just a little less intense. It didn’t get excellent or worse, but it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy as 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 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 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 switch off the pen but let the e-liquid circulate.
This is apparently an issue affecting some of the older pens. A quick search on 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 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 purchase a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, like the Vapro Fire Wire.
This can be a problem with older pens – the micro usb doesn’t release until it is fully saturated with e-liquid, therefore 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 an enormous difference when filling the tank! Ultimately, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Although it isn’t as good performing, and we did not like needing 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 superb choice. We have 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 simply need to recharge your batteries, I’d highly recommend the product. The built quality and the great flavour make this an absolute must have for anyone looking for that perfect personalised pen.
