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 start with, the SOK Pen has no 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, nonetheless it still does not have any 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 are just using it as a typical wet pen, the lack of screen can pose a problem. There are other pens out there which have back lights, so we’ll have to see on that one.
A feature we found pretty cool was the airflow system. The SOK Pen has a podsmall.com 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 is not? Well, we noticed that with some refills, the flavour became a little less intense. It didn’t get very good 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, as opposed to 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 on the “change” button. This will switch off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. Also you can select “pull the plug on micro USB” which will turn 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, nonetheless it was only on the list of last year’s models. The newer pens seem to be using the new micro usb port, but 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 an extremely high quality e-liquid flavour, it can be best to purchase a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, including the Vapro Fire Wire.
Here is the problem with older pens – the micro usb doesn’t release until it 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 into 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. Though it isn’t nearly as good performing, and we did not 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, 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 the pens. They certainly surpass their name among the most creative and unique pens available today.
