Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
So 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 worry about then?
The SOK Pen has a built in screen that’s protected by a scratch-resistant cover, nonetheless it still has no back light. If you’re using it in the dark (great for writing), the lack of back light won’t be too big 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 on the market that 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 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 think about when it isn’t? Well, we pointed out that with some refills, the flavour became just a little 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 seemed 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 get this done, you press and contain the “reset” button on the bottom of the SOK Pen. Then click 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 switch off the pen but let the e-liquid circulate.
This appears to be an issue affecting a number 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 seem to be using the new micro usb port, but 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 can be best to purchase a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, such as the Vapro Fire Wire.
This is 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 quite short. By turning off the fan, switching off the fire button and turning off the SOK Pen, we could actually get more juice in to the bottle without draining the reservoir. It really made a huge difference when filling the tank! In the end, 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 was enough!
Juul Compatible Pods great gift idea for just about any occasion, then 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 the pens. They certainly surpass their name as one of the most creative and unique pens on the market today.
