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 start with, the SOK Pen does not have any screen. So what do we have to be worried about then?
The SOK Pen includes a built in screen that is protected by 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 standard wet pen, having less screen Juul Compatible Pods can pose a problem. There are other pens out there which 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 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 what about when it isn’t? 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 seemed to affect the consistency of the flavour, rather than 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 the “change” button. This will turn off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can even 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 explore 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 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 a really high quality e-liquid flavour, it can be best to buy a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, including the Vapro Fire Wire.
This can be 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 could actually get more juice in to 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 nearly as good performing, and we did not like having to continually replace the e-liquid, for our 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 have 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 among the most creative and unique pens available today.
