Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
Which 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 has no screen. So what do we must worry about then?
The SOK Pen has a built in screen that’s protected by way of a scratch-resistant cover, but it still does not have any back light. If you’re using it in the dark (ideal for Puff Bar Flavors 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, having less screen can pose an issue. There are other pens on the market that have back lights, so we’ll need to see on that certain.
A feature we found pretty cool was the airflow system. The SOK Pen includes a 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 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 is not? Well, we noticed that with some refills, the flavour became a little less intense. It didn’t get excellent or worse, but 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 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 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. You can even select “turn off micro USB” which will turn off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This appears to be an issue affecting a number 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 appear to be using the new micro usb port, but the problem is 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 may be best to buy a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, like the Vapro Fire Wire.
This is the problem with older pens – the micro usb doesn’t release until it is fully saturated with e-liquid, therefore the battery life is quite short. By turning off the fan, switching off the fire button and turning off the SOK Pen, we were able to get more juice into the bottle without draining the reservoir. It really made a huge difference when filling the tank! Ultimately, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Though it isn’t as good performing, and we didn’t like needing to continually replace the e-liquid, for our purposes this is enough!
If you’re after a great gift idea for any occasion, 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 live up to their name as one of the most creative and unique pens available today. So whether you’re having a special occasion, or just 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.
