Specifications

The Griffin Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer is a black aluminum shell pen that has a pocket clip. The back of the end of the pen near the clip has a laser pointer inside that is red. The stylus for touchscreen devices and pen tip are on a single module. You can get the Griffin Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer now for $49.99.

In Use

The Griffin Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer is a very interesting pen that will serve the student or business user well. The Griffin Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer is perfect for business types that give a lot of presentations. It has a black ink pen tip and a stylus that works with capacitive screens that are both on the same part. You snap the pen/stylus section off the back laser pointer section like you would remove the lid off an ink pen.

One end of that removable section has the ink pen and the other has the stylus. The part you want to use is snapped on the outside of the pen and you are ready to work. The black ink pen cartridge can be replaced. It's a small cartridge and I would think you would be able to but on in stores, but I don’t know that for sure.

The stylus tip is a very cool device that will work with the iPhone and any other device with a capacitive touchscreen. The only downside is that the tip is fat and you may have a hard time hitting small buttons if your hands aren't precise. The tip is well padded so you can press without worrying you will crack the screen.

The laser pointer on the back of the pen has replaceable batteries and uses the tiny little coin cell sort that look like hearing aid batteries. The red laser dot is bright enough that you can easily see it in a room with ambient light but not bright enough to burn or glare in your eyes.

Verdict

Pros

  • Very cool design
  • Stylus works well

Cons

  • Stylus tip is a bit large for small buttons
 

Conclusion

The Griffin Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer is all the working geek or student needs for presentations and tablet use.
