What customers say about "Features"
Adonit Dash 3 Fine Point Precision Stylus
  • The battery lasts all day on 30min charge. The charger is pretty neat.
  • The magnet that holds the pen to the charger is strong, clicks into proper place easily.
  • Love it! I've been using it for about two weeks now and it works very well. Charges quickly and the battery life lasts long.
  • I like that you can click it to turn it off to save battery life. The battery stays for a long time. Basically satisfied with the product.
  • Easy to charge and has a very long battery life. I use it mostly to draw on my iPad and it is very accurate and has nearly no lag which makes it perfect for that.
Apple Pencil Stylus Pen
  • Using it with the 2018 iPad 9.7 inch, it does work beautifully.
  • Great addition to the iPad for fine precision artwork and illustration.
  • Pretty low battery life and fiddly to charge.
  • This works well on the new iPad Air. Perfect for me!
  • Not the most comfortable pen to write with as it's quite slippery.
