Smok Pen – An All-Time Best Seller?
It is with a heavy heart that I write about Smok Pens. I have 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 but when I saw the price of the Smok, I nearly swallowed my fist. I bought the pen, thinking it would be just like the original Visconti which cost me near a thousand dollars. I thought I was obtaining a fountain pen for my money but was extremely disappointed by its performance.
The Electric Tobacconist 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 so with much trepidation. I knew that it was only going to replace the functionality of my original pen therefore i set out to see how it performed. My first impression was that the design of the pen was very clever and that it taken in the vapour. I didn’t even understand what to make of it initially.
The men looked like an electrical pencil and had a USB charging port on underneath. I loved the fact that I could charge my battery through it. I didn’t have any concern with 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 minutes, unlike both hours it took for my original rechargeable battery.
After charging up the pen, I laid it down on a table to try out its temperature control and energy saving modes. After leaving it to heat up for about 5 minutes it read 50 degrees and felt very hot to the touch. After that it went cold instantly and stayed this way, which I found extremely impressive. The Smok Vaporizer appeared to work perfectly as advertised, only using a 1600mah battery to give 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 so easy to utilize that I almost forgot I was likely to charge the Smok Pen! It has a very ergonomic design, and therefore the buttons are all fairly close to the body meaning that it’s easy to press down in it without thinking about it. You will find 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 has an incredibly high safety standard in terms of the power it really 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. This is a minor issue, but something that could potentially be annoying when you’re waiting for a cup of coffee or tea. It appears that the problem is caused by the pressure of the liquid that is being held in the reservoir behind the fire button. I have got the leak fixed, but it did happen once, so I guess it isn’t totally unbreakable.
The Smok Vaporizer does indeed perform as well as I would expect from an everyday pen. The cool thing is that there is a built in powerbank for 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 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 operate and the instructions that include the pen have become clear.
Smok Vaporizer really has put a big focus on ease of use making use of 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 and every time. It’s my favourite pen as it provides quality vapour for long periods of time, and with a battery that lasts for longer than most pens, that’s saying something!
