Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
So you need it a SOK Pen? We’ve heard Puff Bar about it, we’ve used it. But do we know why it’s great? Well, to begin with, the SOK Pen has no screen. So what do we have to worry about then?
The SOK Pen has a built in screen that’s protected by a scratch-resistant cover, but it still does not have any back light. If you’re using it in the dark (great for writing), having less back light won’t be too big an issue for you. If you’re just using it as a standard wet pen, the lack of screen can pose a problem. There are other pens on the market which have back lights, so we’ll have to see on that one.
An attribute 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 into 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 pointed out that with some refills, the flavour became a little less intense. It didn’t get excellent or worse, nonetheless it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy since 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 issue could be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To do this, you press and contain the “reset” button on underneath of the SOK Pen. Then click on the “change” button. This will turn off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You may 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 search on Google returned this one, but it was only on the list of last year’s models. The newer pens appear to be using 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. So if you want to get an extremely high quality e-liquid flavour, it can be best to buy a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, such as the Vapro Fire Wire.
Here is the problem with older pens – the micro usb doesn’t release until it really 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 in to the bottle without draining the reservoir. It really made an enormous difference when filling the tank! In the end, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Although it isn’t nearly 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 superb 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 just have to recharge your batteries, I’d highly recommend this product. The built quality and the great flavour make this a must have for anyone searching for that perfect personalised pen.
