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 begin 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 is protected by a scratch-resistant cover, but it still does not have any back light. If you’re using 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 standard podsmall.com wet pen, having less screen can pose a problem. 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 noticed that with some refills, the flavour became just a little less intense. It didn’t get very good or worse, but 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, rather than the intensity. Maybe the airflow wasn’t working so well!
After some 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” button on the bottom of the SOK Pen. Then click the “change” button. This will pull the plug on the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You may also select “switch 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 search on Google returned this one, but 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 that they are utilizing 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 can be best to buy a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, like the Vapro Fire Wire.
This can be 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 an enormous difference when filling the tank! In the end, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Although it isn’t as good performing, and we did not like needing to continually replace the e-liquid, for our purposes this is enough!
If you are looking for a great gift idea for any occasion, 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 among 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 fantastic flavour make this a must have for anyone looking for that perfect personalised pen.
