    Fantastic Stylus — Best one I have tried, August 1, 2011

    This is exactly what I was looking for — a stylus that was not too short, not too long, high quality construction, and didn’t have a clip on it (while useful for hanging or storing in a shirt pocket, when writing it is very irritating in my hand). Stylus tip has just enough friction and is just the right rigidity — I had a Targus stylus I tried before this and it had too soft a tip. Bonus for also having the ability to replace the tip when it wears out (I don’t know of any other stylus that can do this) — and it even comes with an extra tip.

    While I haven’t used all the styluses out there, compared to the ones I have used, this is by far the best one.

    I have fat fingers, so prefer to use a stylus on my iPad, and the elago is the fourth brand of styli I’ve tried. The others are branded Nataal, Kensington, and BoxWave. Capacitive styli tips are necessarily fat for technological reasons, and they wear out or lose their effectiveness over time. Wacom makes an expensive (list price $29.95) capacitive stylus the tips of which are replaceable, but as far as I can determine, they do not ship with an extra tip or tips.

    I think it is unfortunate that most capacitive styli are marketed in a way that burdens consumers with having to constantly replace them with brand new ones, which would not be the case if, like mechanical pencils and many ordinary pens (ballpoint, fountain, etc.), replacement tips (or leads, refills, etc.) were readily available at reasonable prices. So kudos to elago for at least selling three models of styli (the Slim, Grip and Rustic) with replaceable tips and including a replacement tip. I say at least because at present, elago Replaceable Tips have a list price of $9.99 with Amazon’s selling price being $4.99, and I think both prices are too high.

    The aforementioned linked-to Nataal has a slimmer tip than the elago, Kensington, and Boxwave styli, and while I preferred its slimmer tip, it not only wore out on me (after admittedly hard use) but tore (during a rough game of Angry Birds). In my experience, worn capacitive styli require more pressure to be detected by capacitive screens, and the additional pressure of course accelerates the rate at which they wear.

    I find the tip of the elago unremarkable in how it actually feels to use it (a very subjective thing), but the fact that it came with an extra tip compensates for that.

    It would be nice to see capacitive styli capable of using replaceable tips sold with more than one extra tip, and to see extra tips sold at lower prices than the current price for replacement elago tips. But in the meantime, the elago under review is functional and a bargain. Elago started as a professional design company in 2002, specializing in industrial and packaging design, and the elago Stylus Slim comes in a beautifully designed package and would thus make a nice albeit inexpensive gift for the right person.

    I wanted a nice stylus for my ipad and samsung galaxy s2. This one is nice, perfectly cylindrical, heavy, feels good in your hand.. and its cool looking. It comes with a free second tip and works good. I love using it to fly around on my ipad, but if your looking for something for writing I would try one of those pen point kinda of stylus’. its harder to see where your writing with these rubber end kind.
