Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
Which means you want to buy a SOK Pen? We’ve heard about it, we’ve used it. But do we realize 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 way of 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 big an issue for you. If you are just using it as a typical 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.
An attribute 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 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 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 isn’t? Well, we noticed that with some refills, the flavour became just 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 appeared 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 issue could possibly be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To do this, you press and contain the “reset” Puff Bar button on the bottom of the SOK Pen. Then click 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 let the e-liquid circulate.
This is apparently an issue affecting a number of the older pens. A quick explore Google returned this one, nonetheless it was only on the list of last year’s models. The newer pens seem to be utilizing the new micro usb port, however the problem is they are utilizing 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 could be best to buy a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, like the Vapro Fire Wire.
It 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 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 the purposes this is enough!
If you’re after a 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 the pens. They certainly surpass 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 would highly recommend this product. The built quality and the fantastic flavour make this an absolute must have for anyone searching for that perfect personalised pen.
