Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
So you need it a SOK Pen? We’ve heard of 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 must worry about then?
The SOK Pen has a built in screen that is protected by a scratch-resistant cover, but it still has no back light. If you’re deploying it in the dark (ideal for writing), having less 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 can pose a problem. There are other pens on the market which have back lights, so we’ll have to see on that one.
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 air flow 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 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 noticed that with some refills, the flavour became a little less intense. It didn’t get very good or worse, but it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy since 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 problem could possibly be fixed by switching the airflow on or off. To get this done, you press and contain the “reset” button on underneath of the SOK Pen. Then click on the “change” button. This will pull the plug on the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can even select “turn off micro USB” which will switch off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This appears to be an issue affecting some 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, however 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 could be best to buy a pen that uses a higher transfer rate, such as the Vapro Fire Wire.
This is actually 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 an enormous difference when filling the tank! Ultimately, we changed to a Smok Vaporizer instead. Although it isn’t as good performing, and we didn’t like needing to continually replace the e-liquid, for the purposes this was enough!
If you’re after a great gift idea for just about any occasion, then 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 surpass their name among the most creative and unique pens on the market today. So whether you are having a special occasion, or just have to podsmall.com recharge your batteries, I would highly recommend the product. The built quality and the great flavour make this a must have for anyone looking for that perfect personalised pen.
