Smok Pen – An All-Time Best Seller?
It is with a heavy heart that I write about Smok Pens. I have been quite a long time user of another 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 price of the Smok, I nearly swallowed my fist. I purchased the pen, thinking it might be just like the original Visconti which cost me near one thousand dollars. I thought I was obtaining a fountain pen for my money but was extremely let down by its performance.
The initial Smok Vaporizer gave me very little flavour, it tasted like plastic and was quite bland and boring. So, when I made a decision to give the Smok Pen a go I did so so with much trepidation. I knew that it was only going to replace the functionality of my original pen and so I set out to observe 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 understand 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 concern with draining the reservoir though. The reason I say simply because the charging system on the Smok Pen is actually quick, I can charge my battery within a few 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 try out its temperature control and power saving modes. After leaving it to heat up for about 5 minutes it read 50 degrees and felt very hot to the touch. It then went cold instantly and stayed this way, which I found extremely impressive. The Smok Vaporizer seemed to work perfectly as advertised, only using a 1600mah battery to give me extended battery life. I also discovered that the coils on the pen weren’t too sticky when working with it, unlike some other pens that may be quite messy when cleaning.
When it came to using the Smok Vaporizer, I have to say that it was so easy to utilize that I almost forgot I was supposed to charge the Smok Pen! It has a very ergonomic design, meaning that the buttons are all fairly close to the body meaning that it’s easy to press down on them without thinking about it. There is 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 comes with an incredibly high safety standard with regards 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 seems to leak occasionally. This can be 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’ve got the leak fixed, but it did happen once, so I guess it’s not totally unbreakable.
The Smok Vaporizer really does perform as well as I’d expect from an everyday pen. The cool thing is that there surely is a built in powerbank for all those times when you must have an e-liquid quickly. The reservoir also acts because the e-liquid reservoir, meaning that there is no extra hassle or complication, and which means that you can continually be ready to fire up your pen. If you’re somebody who doesn’t want to fool around with a USB cable, then this can be a must have. It’s extremely simple to use and the instructions that come with the pen are very clear.
Smok Vaporizer really has put a large focus on ease of use with their latest vaporizing pen. The e-liquid Smok Novo 2 capacity is ample, it’s incredibly easy to refill, and it supplies the correct amount of flavour each and every time. It’s my favourite pen as it provides quality vapour for extended periods of time, and with a battery that lasts for longer than most pens, that’s saying something!
