Smok Pen – An All-Time Best Seller?
It really is with a heavy heart that I write about Smok Pens. I had been a long time user of a different pen manufacturer’s products and while they were ok, much less good because the Smok Pen. I have always been a fan of mechanical pens however when I saw the cost of the Smok, I nearly swallowed my fist. I bought the pen, thinking it could be like the original Visconti which cost me near a thousand dollars. I thought I was getting a fountain pen for my money but was extremely let down by its performance.
Smok Novo 2 The initial Smok Vaporizer gave me very little flavour, it tasted like plastic and was quite bland and boring. So, when I decided to give the Smok Pen a go I did so so with much trepidation. I knew that it had been only likely to replace the functionality of my original pen and so I set out to see how it performed. My first impression was that the look of the pen was very clever and that it pulled in the vapour. I didn’t even know what to make of it initially.
The men looked very much like a power pencil and had a USB charging port on the bottom. I loved the point that I possibly could charge my battery through it. I didn’t have any concern with draining the reservoir though. The reason why I say for the reason that the charging system on the Smok Pen is actually quick, I can charge my battery within minutes, unlike the two hours it took for my original rechargeable battery.
After charging up the pen, I laid it down on a table to test out its temperature control and power saving modes. After leaving it to heat up for about five minutes it read 50 degrees and felt scorching to the touch. It then went cold instantly and stayed this way, that i found extremely impressive. The Smok Vaporizer seemed to work perfectly as advertised, only using a 1600mah battery to provide me extended battery life. I also discovered that the coils on the pen weren’t too sticky when using it, unlike various other pens which may be quite messy when cleaning.
When it came to using the Smok Vaporizer, I must say that it was very easy to use that I almost forgot I was supposed to charge the Smok Pen! It has a very ergonomic design, and therefore the buttons are fairly close to the body meaning that it’s easy to press down in it without thinking about it. There is a nice little touch feature on the Smok Pen that allows you to change the color of the button to red whenever you need to. You can find no safety issues whatsoever, because the Smok Vaporizer comes with an incredibly high safety standard when it comes to the power it is charging from the micro usb port.
Really the only issue I found with the Smok Pen is that the reservoir appears to leak occasionally. It is a minor issue, but something that could potentially be annoying when you’re waiting for a sit down elsewhere or tea. It appears that the problem is due to the pressure of the liquid that’s being held in the reservoir behind the fire button. I’ve managed to get the leak fixed, nonetheless it did happen once, therefore i guess it’s not totally unbreakable.
The Smok Vaporizer really does perform as well as I would expect from a day to day pen. The cool thing is that there surely is a built in powerbank for all those times when you need to have an e-liquid quickly. The reservoir also acts as the e-liquid reservoir, meaning that there is no extra hassle or complication, and that means that you can continually be ready to fire up your pen. If you’re someone who doesn’t want to mess around with a USB cable, then this can be a must have. It’s extremely easy to use and the instructions that include the pen have become clear.
Smok Vaporizer really has put a big focus on simplicity with their latest vaporizing pen. The e-liquid capacity is ample, it’s incredibly easy to refill, and it provides the correct amount of flavour each time. It’s my favourite pen since it provides quality vapour for long periods of time, sufficient reason for a battery that lasts for longer than most pens, that’s saying something!
