Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
And that means you need it a SOK Pen? We’ve heard about it, we’ve used it. But do we know why it’s great? Well, to begin with, the SOK Pen does not have any screen. So what do we must 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 (great for writing), the lack of back light won’t be too big an issue for you. If you are just using it as a typical wet pen, the lack of screen can pose a problem. There are other pens out there 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 in to the reservoir which hold your liquid flavours. Cool, but does this airflow system work? It works well, 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 a little less intense. It didn’t get excellent or worse, but 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, rather than the intensity. Maybe the airflow wasn’t working so well!
After even more research, we discovered that this issue could be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To get this done, you press vapinger.com and hold the “reset” button on the bottom of the SOK Pen. Then click on the “change” button. This will turn off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can even select “turn off micro USB” which will switch 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 among the last year’s models. The newer pens appear 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. If you want to get an extremely high quality e-liquid flavour, it might be best to buy a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, such as the Vapro Fire Wire.
It 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 into 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. Though 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!
If you are looking for a great gift idea for just about 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 among the most creative and unique pens available today. So whether you are having a special occasion, or just have to recharge your batteries, I would highly recommend the product. The built quality and the great flavour make this an absolute must have for anyone looking for that perfect personalised pen.
