Smok Pen – An All-Time Best Seller?
It is with a heavy heart that I reveal Smok Pens. I had been a long time user of another pen manufacturer’s products and while they were ok, not as good because the Smok Pen. I have 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 might be just like the original Visconti which cost me close to a thousand dollars. I thought I was getting a fountain pen for my money but was extremely let down by its performance.
The original Smok Vaporizer gave me hardly any flavour, it tasted like plastic and was quite bland and boring. So, when I decided to give the Smok Pen a try I did so with much trepidation. I knew that it had been only going to replace the functionality of my original pen and so I set out to see how it performed. My first impression was that the design of the pen was very clever and that it pulled in the vapour. I didn’t even know what to label of it at first.
The men looked very much like an electrical pencil and had a USB charging port on the bottom. I loved the fact that I possibly could charge my battery through it. I didn’t have any fear of draining the reservoir though. The reason why I say it is because the charging system on the Smok Pen is really quick, I could charge my battery within a few minutes, unlike both 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 energy saving modes. After leaving it to heat up for about 5 minutes it read 50 degrees and felt scorching to the touch. After that it went cold instantly and stayed that way, that i found extremely impressive. The Smok Vaporizer appeared to work perfectly as advertised, only using a 1600mah battery to provide me extended battery life. I also found that the coils on the pen weren’t too sticky when working with it, unlike various other pens that 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 likely to charge the Smok Pen! It has a very ergonomic design, meaning that the buttons are fairly near to the body meaning that it’s easy to press down on them without thinking about it. There exists a nice little touch feature on the Smok Pen that allows you to change the colour of the button to red once you need to. There are no safety issues whatsoever, as the Smok Vaporizer has an incredibly high safety standard with regards to the power it is charging from the micro usb port.
The only real issue I found with the Smok Pen is that the reservoir appears to leak occasionally. It is a minor issue, but a thing that could potentially be annoying when you’re waiting for a sit down elsewhere or tea. It seems that the problem is due to the pressure of the liquid that is being held in the reservoir behind the fire button. I have managed to get the leak fixed, nonetheless it did happen once, so I guess it’s not totally unbreakable.
The Smok Vaporizer does indeed 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 those times when you need to have an e-liquid quickly. The reservoir also acts because the e-liquid reservoir, meaning that there is absolutely no extra hassle or complication, and which means that you can always be ready to fire up your pen. If you’re someone who doesn’t want to mess around with a USB cable, then this is a must have. It’s extremely simple to use and the instructions that include the pen have become clear.
Smok Vaporizer really has put a big focus on simplicity making use of their latest vaporizing pen. The e-liquid capacity is ample, it’s incredibly an easy task to refill, and it supplies the correct amount of flavour every time. It’s my favourite pen as it provides quality vapour for long periods of time, sufficient reason for a battery that lasts Novo 2 for longer than most pens, that’s saying something!
