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 great? Well, to begin with, the SOK Pen does not have any screen. So what do we have to worry 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 deploying 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 typical wet pen, having less screen can pose a problem. There are other pens out there which 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 started up 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 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 what about when it isn’t? Well, we noticed that with some refills, the flavour became just a little less intense. It didn’t get excellent or worse, but it wasn’t quite as rich or creamy since it had 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 get this done, you press and hold the “reset” button on underneath of the SOK Pen. Then click the “change” button. This will pull the plug on the fan and activate the cooling mechanism. You can also select “turn off micro USB” which will switch off the pen but allow e-liquid circulate.
This seems to be an issue affecting a number of the older pens. A quick search on Google returned this one, nonetheless it was only on the list of last year’s models. The newer pens seem to be utilizing 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 could be best to purchase a pen that runs on the higher transfer rate, like the Vapro Fire Wire.
This is actually 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 very short. By turning off the fan, switching off the fire button and turning off the SOK Pen, we were able to 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 nearly as good performing, and we didn’t like needing to continually replace the e-liquid, for our purposes this was enough!
great gift idea for just about any occasion, then a Smok Pen is a superb choice. We’ve had people write us emails with Smok Novo 2 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.

The built quality and the great flavour make this a must have for anyone searching for that perfect personalised pen.
