Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
And that means you want to buy a SOK Pen? We’ve heard of 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 worry about then?
The SOK Pen has a built in screen that is JUUL Pods protected by way of a scratch-resistant cover, but it still does not have any back light. If you’re deploying it in the dark (ideal for writing), the lack of back light won’t be too large an issue for you. If you are just using it as a typical wet pen, having less screen can pose a problem. There are other pens out there that have back lights, so we’ll have to see on that one.
A feature we found pretty cool was the airflow system. The SOK Pen includes 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 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 isn’t? Well, we noticed that with some refills, the flavour became 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 seemed 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 issue could be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To do this, you press and hold the “reset” button on the bottom of the SOK Pen. Then click on the “change” button. This will switch 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 a few 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 utilizing the new micro usb port, however the problem is that they are using 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 may be best to buy a pen that uses a 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, so 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 a huge difference when filling the tank! Ultimately, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Though it isn’t as good performing, and we did not like needing to continually replace the e-liquid, for our purposes this is enough!
great gift idea for just about 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 the pens. They certainly surpass their name as one of the most creative and unique pens available today. So whether you are having a special occasion, or just need to recharge your batteries, I’d highly recommend this product. The built quality and the great flavour make this an absolute must have for anyone searching for that perfect personalised pen.
