Posted on

Have you ever considered using a Stylus with your phone or tablet? Maybe you know someone in your family who owns one, or seen a stranger using one while out and wondered if you should try it. Well, we’re here to tell you there are many benefits to using a Stylus, not to mention a variety of options to choose from depending on your needs. Here’s a breakdown of why you should consider using a Stylus pen and which one is best for you.

Stylus Benefits

  • Cleanliness: Using a stylus in place of your fingertips prevents smudges, oily stains and greatly decreases germ spread.
  • Precision: You immediately increase the accuracy of your typing and swiping, as well as selecting specific text or icons and making selections in drop down menus. 
  • Organization: It’s now easier than ever to jot down a quick note or write a grocery list. 
  • Creativity: For those who work in or have an interest in digital art, a stylus allows you to seamlessly draw, sketch and illustrate.

Stylus Types

We offer several amPen Stylus options depending on your needs.

If you’re looking for something simple:

  • Try our Capacitive stylus. This pen has a rubber tip that conducts the electrical charge from your Stylus to the screen just like your finger would. It can be used on any touch screen device.

If you’re looking for something long-term:

  • Try our Hybrid stylus: This stylus has a fiber tip that protects your touch screen device from scratches. The tip is interchangeable and replaceable so you don’t’ have to buy a new stylus after the tip wears out.

If you’re looking for something multi-functional:

  • Try our Twist stylus: This stylus has a capacitive style rubber tip on one end for your touch screen devices and an integrated ink pen on the other side for taking paper notes. Note: the ink pen side is not to be used on touch screen devices.

If you’re looking for something that digitally does it all:

  • Try our Disk stylus: This stylus has a hybrid style mesh fiber tip on one end for general tapping and swiping and a plastic disk tip on the other side to write notes and draw on touch screen devices.

Thinking about giving one of these styli a try? Great! We also offer amPen Stylus accessories such as replacement Hybrid tips, ink refills and elastic-coil lanyards to attach the Stylus to your device while in use. We can’t wait for you to feel and see the difference when using a stylus pen!
