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 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 includes a built in screen that’s protected by a scratch-resistant cover, but it still has no back light. If you’re using it in the dark (ideal for writing), having less back light won’t be too large 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 out there which have back lights, so we’ll need 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 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 less intense. It didn’t get excellent or worse, nonetheless it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy as it have 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 Electric Tobacconist Coupon working so well!
After even more research, we discovered that this issue could possibly be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To do this, you press and hold the “reset” button on underneath of the SOK Pen. Then click on the “change” button. This will switch off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can even select “switch off micro USB” which will turn off the pen but let the e-liquid circulate.
This is apparently an issue affecting a few of the older pens. A quick explore 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 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 may be best to purchase a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, like the Vapro Fire Wire.
This is the problem with older pens – the micro usb doesn’t release until it 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 could actually get more juice into 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 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 great 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 as one of the most creative and unique pens available today.
