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 have to be worried about then?
The SOK Pen has a built in screen that’s protected by a scratch-resistant cover, but it still has no back light. If you’re deploying 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 typical wet pen, the lack of 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 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 what about when it is not? Well, we pointed out that with some refills, the flavour became a little Puff Bar Flavors less intense. It didn’t get excellent 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, as opposed to the intensity. Maybe the 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 do this, 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 also select “pull the plug on micro USB” which will turn off the pen but let the e-liquid circulate.
This seems to be an issue affecting some of the older pens. A quick explore Google returned this one, but it was only among the last year’s models. The newer pens appear to be utilizing the new micro usb port, however the problem is that they are utilizing a lower transfer rate. Transfer rates are measured in MB/s, or million bits/sec. If you want to get an extremely 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 actually the problem with older pens – the micro usb doesn’t release until it really is fully saturated with e-liquid, so 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 into the bottle without draining the reservoir. It certainly 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 didn’t like having to continually replace the e-liquid, for the purposes this is enough!
great gift idea for 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 live up to their name among the most creative and unique pens on the market today. So whether you’re having a special occasion, or simply need to recharge your batteries, I would 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.
