I hated how I always introduce my reviews and I still haven’t figured out how to open this type of post. Anyway as usual this is a new purchase I had from Lazada. They’ve been doing a lot of promos recently. Those promos were also tied up to GCash, so I took advantage of it. I took advantage of purchasing a “want” item because it had a 50% off. This item is the Vanker Rechargeable Stylus Pen.
Before we go any further, let’s talk about What is a Stylus Pen?
The stylus pen is a tool or a device to make your touches on a device be more accurate. I’m sure everyone knows that(or almost everyone?). Just so you know, there’s a lot of stylus pens available in the market.

Here are the common types of Stylus I’ve seen so far:

  1. Conductive Rubber Stylus – This is the most common stylus we can buy in most stores that sell accessories for mobile phones. These were the rubber tips. They were inaccurate because of their wide tip. They are the cheapest too. The unbranded versions of it suck but it’s quite bearable for some brands like Adonit and Wacom.
  2. Capacitive Stylus – This is a conductive stylus too but it needs the power to be used. It usually has a metal tip and operates with batteries. This is the one we’re going to review today. This is also compatible with most capacitive touchscreen devices.
  3. Active Stylus – This is a power-operated stylus that usually requires pairing with the device you’re using to get a better experience. The most active stylus is more accurate because of pressure sensitivity and palm rejection. They are perfect for artists and professionals. Having that said, these were the most expensive too. They also work on limited devices only.
So by telling you the types of the stylus, I’m sure you understood that we’re reviewing the mid-range type of it.

Why did I purchase it by the way?

I believe that I’ve shared with you in the past that my son is really good at drawing. He has limited tools and I wanted him to develop his skills. So I decided to get him a capacitive stylus. The reason is, there are tons of apps that will allow him to explore different tools to draw using his tablet like Autodesk Sketchbook. In those apps, he can change the colors, the size of pens, and the types of nibs like brushes, pencils, and drawing pens.
I decided to get him the mid-ranged because he only has an old model of Alcatel android tablet. The most likely active stylus works only on iPads and special Android devices that have an active stylus included like the Samsung Note series. Also, I wanted to know if this is something he can really use to develop his skills. Basically, the decision of purchasing this is experimental.
