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 start 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’s protected by a scratch-resistant cover, but it still has no back light. If you’re using it in the dark (ideal for writing), the lack of back light won’t be too large an issue for you. If you’re just using it as a standard wet pen, the lack of screen can pose an issue. There are other pens out there which have back lights, so we’ll have to see on that certain.
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 ventilation 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 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 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 as it have 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 even more research, we discovered that this problem 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 turn off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You may also select “pull the plug on micro USB” which will turn off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This appears to be an issue affecting a few 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 utilizing the new micro usb port, however the problem is that 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 might be best to purchase a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, including 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, 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 Vape Pen 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 did not like having 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 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 among the most creative and unique pens on the market today.
