Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
Which means you want to buy a SOK Pen? We’ve heard about it, we’ve used it. But do we know why it’s podsmall.com 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, but it still has no 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, having less screen can pose an issue. There are other pens on the market that have back lights, so we’ll need to see on that one.
An attribute we found pretty cool was the airflow system. The SOK Pen includes 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 into 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 noticed 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 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 issue could possibly 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 the “change” button. This will switch off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can even select “turn off micro USB” which will turn off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This appears 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 seem to be using 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 an extremely high quality e-liquid flavour, it can be best to purchase a pen that uses a 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 very 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 certainly 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 was enough!
If you’re after a great gift idea for any occasion, 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 surpass their name as one of the most creative and unique pens on the market today. So whether you are having a special occasion, or simply have to recharge your batteries, I’d highly recommend the product. The built quality and the great flavour make this an absolute must have for anyone searching for that perfect personalised pen.
