Smok Pen Juice Fountain Review
So you want to buy a SOK Pen? We’ve heard about it, we’ve used it. But do we realize 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 includes a built in screen that is protected by way of a scratch-resistant cover, nonetheless it still has no back light. If you’re deploying it in the dark (ideal for writing), the lack of back light won’t be too big an issue for you. If you are just using it as a standard wet pen, the lack of screen can pose a problem. There are other pens on the market that have back lights, so we’ll need to see on that certain.
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 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, 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 get this done, you press and hold the “reset” button on underneath of the SOK Pen. Then click the “change” button. This will turn off the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You may also select “switch off micro USB” which will turn off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This seems to be 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 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 a really high quality e-liquid flavour, it might be best to purchase a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, including the Vapro Fire Wire.
This can be 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 in to the bottle without draining the reservoir. It really made an enormous 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 having to continually replace the e-liquid, for the purposes this is enough!
If you’re after a great gift idea for any occasion, then 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 these pens. They Novo 2 certainly surpass their name among 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 the product. The built quality and the fantastic flavour make this an absolute must have for anyone searching for that perfect personalised pen.
