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 realize why it’s great? Well, to begin with, the SOK Pen does not have any screen. So what do we must be worried about then?
The SOK Pen includes a built in screen that is 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 writing), having less back light won’t be too large an issue for you. If you are just using it as a standard wet pen, having less screen can pose a problem. There are other pens on the market which have back lights, so we’ll need to see on that one.
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 is effective, 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 Element Vape is not? Well, we noticed 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 have been with the airflow activated pen. The refilling appeared 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 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 turn 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 seems to be 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 seem to be utilizing 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 an extremely high quality e-liquid flavour, it can be best to purchase a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, like 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, therefore the battery life is very short. By turning off the fan, switching off the fire button and turning off the SOK Pen, we were able to get more juice in to 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 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, 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 these pens. They certainly live up to their name as one of the most creative and unique pens on the market today. So whether you are having a special occasion, or simply 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.
