Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
And that means you want to buy 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 have to be worried 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), having less back light won’t be too large 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 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 discovered that it improved the flavour of our podsmall.com Smok Vaporizers.
It’s all well and good, if your airflow is working, but what 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, but it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy since 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 even more research, we discovered that this problem could possibly be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To get this done, you press and contain the “reset” button on the bottom of the SOK Pen. Then click on the “change” button. This will switch off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can even select “turn off micro USB” which will switch off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This seems to be an issue affecting a few of the older pens. A quick explore Google returned this one, but 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 using a lower transfer rate. Transfer rates are measured in MB/s, or million bits/sec. So if you want to get a really high quality e-liquid flavour, it could be best to buy a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, such as 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, 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 certainly made a huge difference when filling the tank! In the end, 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 the purposes this was enough!
If you’re after a great gift idea for just about any occasion, a Smok Pen is a great 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 surpass their name among the most creative and unique pens available today. So whether you are having a special occasion, or simply have to recharge your batteries, I’d highly recommend the product. The built quality and the fantastic flavour make this a must have for anyone looking for that perfect personalised pen.
