Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
So you want to buy a SOK Pen? We’ve heard of 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 must worry about then?
The SOK Pen includes a built in screen that’s protected by a scratch-resistant cover, nonetheless it still does not have any back light. If you’re deploying it in the dark (great for 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 out there which 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 has 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 in to 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 is not? 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 have been with the airflow activated pen. The refilling appeared to affect the consistency of the flavour, as opposed to the intensity. Maybe the Juul Pods airflow wasn’t working so well!
After some 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 underneath of the SOK Pen. Then click on the “change” button. This will pull the plug on the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. Also you can select “turn off micro USB” which will turn off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This is apparently an issue affecting a few 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 utilizing 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 can be best to purchase a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, like the Vapro Fire Wire.
This is actually 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 an enormous difference when filling the tank! Ultimately, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Though it isn’t nearly as good performing, and we did not like needing to continually replace the e-liquid, for the purposes this was enough!
If you’re after a great gift idea for any occasion, then 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 these 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 simply have to recharge your batteries, I would highly recommend this product. The built quality and the fantastic flavour make this a must have for anyone looking for that perfect personalised pen.
