- Great, sleek pen! Review by Shoshana

The following is my review for New Trent Stylus Pen NT62B:
I am very pleased with this product. The pen structure is very sturdy and
durable, while at the same time being very sleek, lightweight and
streamlined. I love the gold color, which matches very well with the iPhone
5S color, for those who like coordination among their tech products. I
would suggest creating more color options, for those who have multi colored
devices and cases.
I am also very happy with the dual function and sidedness of the stylus -
the fine ball point pen is very easy to write with if you decide to go back
to paper-writing, while the micro-knit side is great for those with
"bulky/clumsy" fingers (like me), or for those who hate oily fingerprint
marks on their screens (also me).
I would recommend making this product a bit "longer" in order to feel like
a more conventional pen - I'm used to writing with the typical sized-pen,
and a shorter stylus can feel a bit strange at times. It's possible that
this adjustment could take away some of the sleekness, but perhaps a
retractable length option could work, if possible. (Posted on 6/6/14)
- A pen and a Stylus 2 great tools in 1 Review by Ernesto
Here are some quick Pros:
Versatility-Can be used as an everyday stylus with the advantage of quickly twisting to become a pen.
Microfiber tip-I have to say that this makes the touch screen very responsive, easy to use, without having to apply too much pressure.
Accurate- It almost feels like it adds a sense of pin point accuracy.
Good design- Small but not too small, nice a compact package that has a nice exterior look, easy to twist pen.
Strong clip- at the beginning the clip is a bit snug but after multiple uses it hits that sweet spot where it quickly clips while holding on tightly.
Some room for improvement, I really don't see where NewTrent could improve on the product it is slim, practical, and durable. The only concern would be the ink, but it seems that the ink replacements could be found in any office supply store. Great overall product and now part of my everyday tools for work and play.

- Perfect stylus Review by Angela
As a school administrator, I go from meeting to meeting and have a stack of stuff that I take with me. Usually that included both a pen and a stylus. I know that may not seem like a big deal, but that meant carrying one extra thing around, and possibly forgetting one item or the other. I try to make as many of my notes as possible digital so that I have a running record in one place. I often opted not to carry the stylus, so I often neglected my notes, or put them on paper which was counter productive to my intentions.
I decided to try the New Trent (1PC) Limir Dual Purpose Stylus and Fine Ball Pen to see if I liked it. I have to admit that I am a little surprised, but I really do. The pen tip is fine enough for my preference, and you can choose to use a different refill color or pen width. The stylus/pen is approximately three inches and fits nicely in my hand for writing on the screen or signing paper documents in meetings. I like the pen so much, that I plan to give a few as gifts.

- Great idea! Review by Ninab64

- Great capacitive pen - size might be a bit small for very large hands - but a solid product. Review by Russell
During the workday I use my phone a lot - mostly to access the internet and look things up. The problem is that I am always working on something and my hands are often dirty. It got to the point that I was cleaning my screen 5 times a day! I was fed up, and decided to order a stylus pen.
I liked the New Trent pen because it was both an ink pen and had a Capacitive Touch tip on the other end. Since I'm using a pen throughout the day anyway, this made the most sense.
When the pen arrived I was a bit surprised to see that it was only about 4.5 inches long. Yes, the size was listed, but I failed to read it. Nonetheless, I decided to give it a try.
The capacitive tip works great! With just the lightest touch it allows me to move about my screen as easily, and probably even easier, than by using my own finger. It was exactly what I needed. I had tried the rubber tip type and they were not smooth at all. This has a micro knit tip that really does just glide along.
And, in fairness, the pen side worked well also, but I found it to be just a bit awkward for my large hands. In a pinch, the pen will be fine, but if I decide to write the next great novel, I will switch to something a little larger for my hands.
Oddly enough, my wife saw me using this and asked me what it was. Without saying anything to her, I tossed it to her to try. Her first words - "I really like this pen - it's small and not big and bulky like those pens you use". Go figure! She wanted it as she is a nurse and they tend to carry everything in their pockets, so the smaller size was appealing to her. Plus it works well with her iPad. But I got it back from her - I'm not giving up my capacitive touch pen just because she likes it to write with!
I rate this one a 5 out of 5. Everything works as advertised - but I would like the option of larger pen. (Posted on 5/22/14)
- The Right Tool to Write With Review by Ryan
One of the great features of the iPad is the availability of apps that allow you to manipulate PDF files (I've personally used iAnnotate, but the free Adobe Reader app also offers some basic PDF markups). This New Trent stylus works great for not only for "signing" a document electronically, but I find it very useful for highlighting sections of a research PDF which would normally be a somewhat cumbersome process when using my finger.
The mesh tip of this stylus is a welcome change from other styluses I've used that had a rubber tip. The mesh seems to hold its form better which makes for a more natural feel when "writing" or "highlighting" on a capacitive screen. The included retractable ballpoint pen is also a nice feature for those times when I must write on actual paper. This stylus has worked great on my iPad 2, iPhone 5S, Kindle Fire, and HP TouchPad.
+ The mesh tip holds up well while in use to provide a more natural writing experience.
+ The gold color complements the gold iPhone 5S well.
+ The included pen (with black ink) is a nice bonus
+ Compact size makes it easy to carry in my pocket
- The mesh tip is fairly blunt, which is common for all capacitive styluses. However, I've noticed that tapping small objects with this stylus is still very accurate. (Posted on 5/21/14)
- A very well built stylus pen, comfortable, and tested well with all my products. Review by Charles Lindenmuth
▶ Package Contents
1 x New Trent Limir Dual Purpose Stylus
• Microfiber tip
• Dimension: 4.5" (L)x 0.3" (Dia) inch
As stated in the specifications, the Stylus is 4.5” long and 0.3” diameter. This stylus unfortunately only comes in a copper color, unlike the New Trent Arcadia Clickpen, which comes in two. The top of the Stylus is the location of the pen, which comes out by turning the stylus 90° clockwise. Under the pen is the pocket protector holder, and at the end if the Microfiber tip. At the center of the pen is the divider, which is able to be opened to allow the pen and stylus to be used separately. The biggest draw to buy this product is the microfiber tip, which is supposed to be compatible with any capacitive touch surface. Capacitive touch surfaces are a newer technology, which replaces resistive touch, a technology used by first generation touch screens and sub $50 mobile devices. Now, you may be thinking, “Don’t all styluses have this functionality?” The simple answer is, “No.” There are several companies that create cheaper styluses, with rubber tips, which are less responsive and not compatible with every capacitive touch screen. Overall, I like the construction of this stylus, and the microfiber tip.
I tested this product for about a week. I tested the stylus with my Nexus 7 (2013), Samsung Galaxy Rush, Nintendo 3DS, and Zune HD. As expected, the stylus worked on every screen I attempted to use it with, unlike the rubber tip styluses I’ve used in the past. When I opened a drawing app on each device, the stylus was very comfortable and accurate to the touch. I then tested the pen feature for this stylus. The pocket protector unfortunately made the pen uncomfortable, as there was only one position I could write. Overall, I am satisfied by the functions of this stylus.
▶ Final Thoughts
Beside the minor pen issue, I overall like the functionality of this device. Because the stylus matched the claims, I recommend this product to anyone needing a stylus, and give this a rating of 5 stars. I have seen other reviewers claim the pen “exploding” or spilling. I have yet to see these issues in my testing period.
+ A very well built stylus pen, comfortable, and tested well with all my products.
+ Compatible with all capacitive touch screens.
- The pen feature is awkward, since the pocket protector only allows one comfortable position.
Drag ability: 5/5
Comfort: 5/5 for stylus, 3/5 for pen.

- New Trent Stylus - Smooooth Review by Eddie
Not bad build quality, looks a little different from other stylus' I have used due to the mesh tip.
Had a play with the pen, writes quite well surprisingly.
My wife had a play with the pen too and liked it, that's a thumbs up so far.
First use of the stylus was with a Nokia lumina 820, I have to say that it was only ok.
Tapping works well, but trying to drag or swipe is very hit or miss. Only a 3 out of 5 with the Nokia.
Next I used the stylus with an iPad Air. This was a much more satisfying experience, I found that it was much more responsive and sliding and swiping work perfectly on the ipad, in fact I am writing this review with it on the ipad!
Definitely prefer the mesh tip on this over the normal rubber tip found on most stylus' as I feel that it gives a smoother action.
Back to the build quality of the stylus. Overall seems to be pretty good, one minor gripe would be that the grip is plastic. I get pretty sweaty hands and I think that the grip would be better being slightly rubberised. I also have fairly long hands, I found the stylus to be slightly on the short side. Although it certainly doesn't seem to be any shorter than other stylus', I think it would be better a little bit longer for more long term comfort.
I let a colleague use the stylus, he said that it "worked", which was unusual for a stylus. He liked the feel of the mesh tip as it "glides better" than a traditional rubber tip. The device used was an iPhone 5.
I'm going to let my wife have a bit of a play and see what she thinks and after that, my eight year old son on his kindle fire hd.
My eight year old son has thoroughly used this stylus with his Kindle Fire HD. His comments are that it is very well built, is very easy to use and keeps his dirty fingerprints off his screen, so it is easier to watch Top Gear on it! he likes the mesh tip and is happy using the stylus - he did not like the rubber tipped stylus that we also have. The Stylus has survived the ordeal of being used by a boisterous eight year old boy with flying colours!
My wife has also used the Stylus and was surprised by the accuracy of it when selecting small objects, she thought that, due to the circumference of the tip that selecting things would be "hit and miss" but this has proved to be untrue. While she would not really have a use for it day to day - she was fairly impressed with it in use.
I am a Project Manager and wouldn't have a massive amount of use for the stylus, as most of my "electronic" work would be using a keyboard, however, I do see a use for this in graphical work, as the stylus is very smooth in use and precise. Also, where "signatures" are required, signing off electronic documents, signing for parcels and packages etc this stylus would be massively superior to using your finger, or the various bits of plastic that you would be presented with by Courier companies.
So - overall, we would give this New Trent Stylus, a four stars out of five. It is a well implemented device, that could be improved still further with a couple of minor modifications. (Posted on 5/17/14)
- Great Stylus Review by Daniel
- Best of Both Worlds! Review by Jonathan
This particular stylus works great for capacitive touchscreens devices such as the iPad Air, iPhone 4, and iPhone 5. The stylus's soft touch makes me feel better about using on my electronic devices. The screens responded well when using the stylus. I can't say I have too many complaints with this stylus. The black ink pen that comes with the sylus works perfectly. I am glad that the pen is thin in weight/size. It doesn't bleed or smear on paper. It simply works. (Posted on 5/14/14)
- Very smooth Review by Bobbi
The pen part worked. However, the clip on that end, made holding it as a pen uncomfortable for me. I suppose it is nice to have if you need unexpectedly need a pen. I don't see myself using the pen side regularly or for long periods. I could see some one using this in meetings for quick notes if they are also using a tablet. (Posted on 5/14/14)
- Love the pen capability! Review by Tara
It is convenient to have the pen on one side. It would be easy to change the ink in it also as it comes apart simply.
I do not use a stylus all the time, so I love that this has a pen on it. I will be more likely to keep it nearby for use because of this! (Posted on 5/10/14)
- great stylus Review by cheers1
but in the end, we both love it.
he's using it non-stop and it really is convenient.
you do have to hold it at a certain angle in my opinion because it does not work all the time, but it is definitely the best stylus i've used.
also, i didn't think the pen would be useful, but it was at random times when you needed to jot something down on a piece of paper while you're using the stylus. (it happens shockingly at least once a day... probably because i'm using the stylus almost all the time though...) (Posted on 5/10/14)

Pros: The touch screen capability is very good and does not miss a "touch." The pen is a cool addition so you can use it as an actual pen. It has a perfect size so its not to big or to small. It is very responsive when you use it. The clip makes it easy to hang on to something.
Overall: 5/5 (Posted on 5/5/14)
- Finger-like Review by Steven
- Nice stylus, I like it. Review by Chary
- Best stylus around! Review by Stephanie
- Impressive tool for tablets and phones Review by Steve
One important note on stylii - the type of stylus you need depends on what you're doing. For example, I like to use handwriting apps like "Notes Plus" on the iPad 2 and "Evernote" for the Android Note 8.0 and Galaxy S4. I also like to write with a fine line, with medium to small letters to fit more on the screen. A round-tip stylus isn't ideal for detailed work like that. But if you're just navigating a device like you normally would with your finger, this kind of stylus is better. Further, the ultra-fine-tip stylii sometimes have a hard time pressing "soft buttons" like numbers and menus; the imprint is too small for a button to register and a larger tip like on the NT62B works better. In the photo are the Adonit Jot Pro, the Evernote/Adonit Jot Script, and the NT62B at the bottom. These are my favorite stylii, but they both have the issue with the tip being too fine for use with buttons. They work great for drawing, sketching, and writing, but not so much for basic device navigation.
The ballpoint pen feature is decent - I prefer gel pens over ball point because they're less scratchy. This pen in particular seems to scratch a lot, the further you angle your hand from a 90-degree angle to the page. But it's functional, stays put, and does the job. Otherwise, the metallic copper color is attractive and doesn't look cheap, the construction is sturdy, the mesh takes some abuse and doesn't lose shape, and the pen is adequate. The best part is the metal fabric tip though. You'd think it would make scratches but it doesn't, and it actually moves more quickly than a finger does across plastic and glass. If I had my preference, I'd go with a gel pen instead of ball-point, and I'd make it a little longer. I prefer longer stylii/pens over short ones. The clip on the side is a nice touch, so you can store it in a laptop case and clip it to the pen slot without it falling out. (Posted on 5/1/14)

and feel of it. I liked the way the ink pen operated, the way it writes was

- New Trent stylus pen - great for the price. Review by Juan
The first thing that I noticed when I received the stylus pen is that it had a good weight to it. It didn't feel flimsy like some other stylus pens I have bought. It has a premium build to it that exceeds it's price. Definitely a plus.
As far as using it as a stylus I did not have any problems. I did not have to press hard on my iPad to get it to register. I found it very comfortable to hold. And I found the size of it to be big enough that I would not easily lose it but small enough that I could easily put it in my shirt pocket .
As a pen my first impression was kind of surprised. In order to get it to function as a pen you have to twist the top part of the stylus and a pen tip comes out of the tip. Kind of like writing with a regular pen but backwards. I actually kind of liked this design as you don't have to take the stylus apart to use it as a pen like you do with other stylus's. It was a fairly good pen. Not exceptional but not bad either. Going back to the price of it, you definitely are getting more than the cost of the stylus. As a side note I also like the fact that when the pen runs out of ink you can buy a pen cartridge for it at your local Staples. In order to do that you would pull the pen from the stylus, which is fairly easy, and remove the ink cartridge.
I rate this product a 5 out of 5. A definite must buy.

- Love these! Best soft tip stylus I've ever used! Review by Dustin Ranem
Update (second review):
This stylus worked just as I'd expected. Having used it in the past, I was familiar with it's functionality. I love having the pen readily available, not to mention it's an awesome pen. No cheap parts on this thing at all. The best part is the firm head. Every other stylus on the market is rubber; which makes it extremely hard to be precise. I understand that a fine, hard point won't work with capacitive touch screens, so this is pretty much as good as it gets for precision! This stylus is high quality and ranks 5 out of 5 in my book! (Posted on 4/30/14)
- Very functional Review by David
I like the two-tone design of this pen, and I really like that it is a stylus and a functioning pen. A simple turn of the pen extracts and retracts the pen. It is large enough to be functional, but not too large to be easy to carry. I use the stylus with my iPad and my iPhone 5S. Both have a screen protector, but the stylus works fine. Best of all, the tip slides very nicely over the screen. This is much better than the rubber tips that do not flow as well over the surface. My only concerns are that the stylus tip is quite large and covers too much of the screen when in use. A smaller stylus tip would be better. Also, I wish the stylus tip was retractable. I'm afraid I will damage the tip when not in use. I would also like to know were to by replacement pen inserts.
1. Right size
2. Stylish two tone
3. Retractable ink pen
4. Works well on iPhone and iPad with screen protectors
1. Stylus tip too large
2. Stylus tip not retractable
3. Not sure how to replace ink inserts (Posted on 4/30/14)

- Love this stylus!!!! Review by Robin
use, not too skinny nor too short and not too round or long. The device
uses a gentle touch so no pressing too hard on the screen. The clip on the
outside is great for hooking to just about anything. The pen write very
smoothly and is easily stowed away when not needed. I left it in my car to
see if it might overheat and leave an ink glob on the end of the pen and
this did not happen (was 90 degrees in the car). The pen wrote just as
smooth as when I first used it. I have nothing that I would suggest be
changed about this device. (Posted on 4/29/14)
- Fantastic Review by Alexander
- pretty nice stylus Review by Daniel
The issues I have run into with this stylus have been when using the pen function. While having a pen handy at all times is a must, I feel that this stylus is too short to be consistently used as a pen. Also, the placement of the pocket clip easily gets in the way of my grip when writing and because of that my penmanship had declined.
This stylus/pen combo has proven itself worthy through many lectures where it has sustained a couple falls but hasn’t scuffed in the slightest. The Stylus potion passed with flying colors on an iPad, Samsung Galaxy S4, iPhone 5, MacBook Pro, and even on the cracked screen of my old iPod Touch! (I am not suggesting to use it on cracked screens, but it will work)
As a stylus, it is my favorite one I have used, hands down. While having a pen at the ready is amazingly convenient, I feel that more work could be put into making the pen portion of this combo more ergonomic. All-in-all I would rate it as a 4/5. It is a great tool to have, but if you need a pen, you need a pen. (Posted on 4/29/14)
- Limir Stylus Pen (NT62B) Review by Matt
The Limir microfiber tip just glides effortlessly across my iPad Mini screen. It is very easy to sign documents and work in a photo/art applications. I was concerned at first if my iPad Mini would read it because of my screen protector. It actually picked it up better than any stylus I have had before. My iPad Mini would not pick up one of my rubber tipped stylus pens at all.
Having a writing pen included seems to work good and is pretty handy for meetings, taking study notes, etc. wherever you have to work on your tablet and also jot stuff down on paper.
I would give the Limir Stylus pen a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
The only things that I would change is the length of the stylus (I have big hands and it seemed a little awkward using it at first), but not a deal breaker though. Also, I would make the tip smaller...it would make drawing finer lines etc. easier without having to play with the pressure that you put on the stylus to get the result you want. (Posted on 4/29/14)
- Excellent sytlus with a really nice writing pen included Review by Theresa
I had some concern at first in carrying this in my pocket that the stylus might pick up pocket lint or small debris and cause scratches in my screen but it never has. The tip holds it shape and has remained the same density as when I got it even after continuously riding around in my pocket and banging around with the other junk in there.
This stylus never lets me down and I absolutely love it. There is only one thing I would caution about buying it on Amazon and it’s really just about paying attention when you buy. When I see the picture associated with this product it looks like you get two and not one. Even though the text plainly states there is just (1PC), visually because of the way the picture is laid out you see two and you think “Oh I get two”. Take it from me, you get one. Still, it is well worth the money and hey, it’s the only one you’ll ever need.

- A quality stylus Review by Chad
beyond that. The metal hosing has a nice feel and is thick like a nice pen,
It's easy to hold, Most stylus pens end up to thin and cramp your hands
over time but I did not have that problem with this one. Tested over with
multiple devices there was no trouble from any. From playing games, general
web surfing or drawing. The larger tip though I would not recommend this
pen for artist but for general use it's perfect. The Stylus also includes a
basic ink pen in the other side. I found no issues with this. Simply twist
the stylus to reveal the pen. It worked well and locked into place with
little effort and wrote nicely. I would recommend this stylus to anyone for
general use and casual style games. 5 out of 5. (Posted on 4/29/14)
- A Perfect Portable Stylus Review by brian
The Limir stylus is a small and compact stylus with a retractable pen. I have been using this stylus for about a week on my iPad, a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro and my Galaxy S3 phone. The Limir stylus has performed with perfection. It really shined on the smaller screens much more accurate and precise than using a finger. I love how the fiber tip glides across the screen; this has been my favorite stylus to use to date.
The stylus as well as the pen respond very smoothly and are well built. The stylus is very responsive. The stylus is comfortable in the hand for longer period of use. The stylus glides smoothly across the screen and is a pleasure to use. The tip seems durable, and small enough you're not hitting multiple buttons at the same time.
At the other end of the stylus is a retractable pen, which is retracted by twisting the stylus, YES! No cap to loose or keep track. The pen writes smoothly and is great for note taking.
I would highly recommend the Limir stylus. I would give this item a rating of 5 a must-have product! (Posted on 4/29/14)
- Fantastic. Perfect!! Review by Gianna
- Review of Limir Stylus Pen Review by Jeanine
I used it for my work, which requires constant use of a PDA. My PDA is a Samsung Galaxy 7” tablet, and all of our documentation for our work is on this tablet. It takes me hours of use every evening to complete my paperwork, so I got a great chance to use this capacitive stylus. The cloth tip is something that few styluses have, and it makes a huge difference with use. Most capacitive styluses have a rubber tip, which work well when they are brand new, but quickly start to drag or stick on the screen. When this happens, it slows things down. The New Trent capacitive stylus/pen has a smooth cloth tip, which just glides, and makes using it effortless.
Having the pen available in the same device also is a major timesaver for me. This allows me to switch back and forth between using PDA and jotting notes on paper and do so very smoothly, without having to pick up another item. I definitely want more of these!
I also have an iPhone 5, and a Pantech touchscreen cellphone, so this stylus works smoothly on all of these devices flawlessly.
Suggestion for improvement: slight ribbing on barrel will help it not slide too much in your hand.
It also would be nice to have an attachment somehow to attach to a lanyard—I’m afraid someone will walk off with mine if I’m not watching it like a hawk!

- 4 out of 5 rating - pretty darn good! Review by Rswc90
As I use this stylus more and more, it sort of grows on me. I have had a different one, which is much heavier. This is very light. It works well. It has a micro fiber tip so it doesn’t scratch the surface of my iPhone 4 or my iPad 3. It sometimes takes a couple of touches for the iPad to respond. That might be the stylus or it might just be me.
The pen on the other end of the stylus is a nice touch. It writes well and smoothly –although, I sometimes forget it is there and find that I go seek out a pen! The awkward part of using the pen is that the clasp is where the finger grip is, rather than on the back end. So writing long missives probably isn’t going to be very comfortable. Not sure how they might design it differently – Maybe if the pen cover popped off rather than peeking out, with a roll of the back end, from inside it’s shell.
Another little-but-convenient features is that it has a pocket/paper clasp like a regular ballpoint pen has, so I don’t lose it. It clips to my folio, my pocket or a pile of papers I am working with. It does not get lost. (still kind of get is in the way when using it as a pen!) The claps allow me to clip it to the cover of my iPad cover so I always know where it is.
All in all, on a scale of 1-5, I would rate it a very good 4. I just like the stylus I use to be a bit heavier, so I am taking off a point for that. (Posted on 4/24/14)
- great little pen Review by Tony Do
- Great Pen, Stylus, and Value! Review by Chris
Form: Very comfortable. Feels like a real pen. It is the same as a wide pen (not too wide). It contains a clip (like a pen has) in order to hang it for keeping in a bag or backpack like I use for work. (Rating 5)
Performance: Better than a finger on my phablet (Phone/Table Nokia Lumia 1520). My phone is slightly bigger than the average smartphone and is great for gaming and emails. When using the pen, the phone is much more useable. Using the pen over my finger allows me to see more of the screen and have finer control. In addition, the pen tip is made up of what appears to be a soft ball of conductive threads. The pen rides very smooth over the surface and prevents fingerprints and dirt on the screen. I found that the pen is not quite as precise on a laptop screen, but I don’t use it for that and I don’t think it is the pen. Bonus: The stylus is also a pen! (Rating 5)
Cost: $8.95 on Prime with free 2 day shipping is hard to beat. You get a nice looking pen and stylus for less than $9.00. (Rating 5)
Durability: Like mentioned in the form section, it is like a pen. It is also like a well-built pen. Although I haven’t tried throwing it on the ground, stepping on it, etc. I do find that the pen feels well made. (Rating 5)

Overall, compared with other stylus products it's very good, the pen addition makes it very convenient and more likely to be used.

The pen is stylish and feels good in you hand. However my personal preference would be for the pen to be a little longer to match the feel of a traditional pen.

- New Trent Limir Dual Purpose Stylus/Styli for Capacitive Touch Screen Smartphones and Tablets. 2-in-1: Stylus (Micro-Knit Tip) and Fine Ball Pen (Wireless Phone Accessory) Review by LAS
clip on the pen to attach it to a notebook or inside a purse, tote or
briefcase as it doubles as a ballpoint (fillable) pen as well, which is very
convenient! The casing can be a little slippery it would be great to have a
small rubber grip in the middle of the pen; to grip no matter which end one
is using. The mesh end has perfect sensitivity on the iPad/iPhone and is
very precise; it does not sag like many others. I have a screen protector
and other stylus pens had a tendency to stick to the screen this has a very
smooth transition. I would love to see a ball point pen that has the
capability to switch from a ball point to a pen for screens as well as if
you sign with the mesh end as the lines aren’t always smooth making a
freehand signature look somewhat pixilated. All in all it's a great
product, if the two recommendations were added it would receive 5 stars. (Posted on 10/25/13)
- Solid performing stylus Review by Austin
I have used quite a few stylus before picking up the Limir and I was very
surprised at how well the stylus preformed. I mainly use the Wacom Bamboo stylus,
and for me it is the standard others are compared to. Any stylus can be broken up into two parts, the tip and the body. A good stylus needs a good pairing of the two to offer a good experience.
The Limir tip is a special metal woven material that I had seen but never used before. I was not sure about it at first, but it has certain characteristics that I am starting to like. The tip is easy to slide around on the screen. You do not have to push down very hard before the screen detects the tip. To be more specific, the pressure needed to make the Limir work was the same for the Bamboo. My previous experiences with other cheap styluses were not as positive. They seemed to lack response, were sticky on the screen, or you had to squish the tip into the screen before it detected anything. The Limir stands out for a low budget performer and has a good tip. I do not think the metal mesh tip is replaceable like the Bamboo, but since its not rubber I imagine it will last a very long time. The only thing you have to worry about is if something cuts or rips the tip, then you would have to buy a whole new stylus
The body of the Limir is not as much of a shining star as the tip.
To start off I will say I do like that it has a hidden pen that will extend or retract with a twist of the black grip. This is more or a bonus feature than a game changer for me. The pin mechanism does feel solid and strong, and the pen writes smoothly in black ink. The construction of the body is pretty solid and you don’t have to worry about being delicate with it. The length of the pen is a little too short for my liking. I have bigger hands it is awkward for me to write with something that is short. The Limir is just long enough to avoid feeling uncomfortable, but not as long as the Bamboo which is ideal in my opinion. I also like heavy styluses and the Limir is a bit lighter than the Bamboo. If you are wanting something that you can carry around easily the shorter length and lighter weight may be appealing, but for me I welcome extra length and weight. The diameter of the body is perfect. It is easy to hold and feels natural between the fingers.
The Limir has proven to be a very comparable stylus and for half the price of the bamboo you get a solid experience while only giving up minimal performance and the fancy styling that comes with Wacom products. I would recommend the Limir to anyone who needs a good stylus and doesn’t want to pay for it.
Metal mesh tip works very well
Glides across screen nicely
Has an extendable black ink pin
May be a little short
Make mesh tip smaller

- Excellent stylus Review by Quentin
- Fantastic Stylus!!! Review by Rory
have a better feel then New Trent's. I've use generic ones as well as
wacom's but they all feel the same. However this one has the best feel of
all. All the others use a rubber tip which leads to it sticking to the
tablet surface this one appears to be made from some kind of metallic mesh.
It makes all the difference in the world. It's incredibly smooth. I have
only one minor complaint. I wish it were just a bit longer. I give this 5/5. (Posted on 10/23/13)
- great stylus Review by Robert
- A fantastic stylus Review by jeremy
touch screen devices.
I use it on my Apad 2 and Iphone 4s with no problem and was pleasantly
surprised by the little device.
The tip of the stylus is non scratch and glided effortlessly along the screen of my
devices and I found it was better than using my fingers and more accurate at
things like typing instead of my large fingers getting in the way. The stylus is smaller than a standard pen but ok for all uses and is well
made and can clip onto you shirt or jacket pocket out the way.
The stylus has a pen in the other end which is easy to access and use by
twisting the stylus barrel.
I think the stylus looks good and is certainly good value for money.
I would certainly recommend this stylus for your touch screen needs and is worthy of 5 stars (Posted on 10/17/13)
- Magnifico Review by Chad
The stylus end is much more accurate and smooth in my note taking apps on the ipad and iphone.
the added twist out pen makes it even more useful, as I don't need another item in my pocket. Just carry the MP62B stylus pen!! Only thing I wish is that it was a little longer (for more ink in the pen) (Posted on 10/14/13)
- pretty good item Review by brian
- smooth experience with New Trent IMP62B Limir Stylus Review by Anthony
Compared to a rubber tip stylus, the New Trent IMP62B Limir Stylus works much better. The New Trent IMP62B Limir Stylus does not stick like rubber tip styli often do.
The New Trent IMP62B Limir Stylus feels nice in your hand. It has a nice weight - not too heavy and not too light. The length is just enough to fit comfortably in your hand. Any shorter would not be good, but it could be a little longer.
The pen on the opposite end from the micro fibre tip writes well and has a nice looking design.
I definitely would recommend the New Trent IMP62B Limir Stylus over a rubber tipped stylus. (Posted on 10/7/13)
- Precision on a smaller screen Review by Tyler
I used the NT IMP62B exclusively on my IPhone 4. From the outset I noticed a dramatic improvement in precision when navigating through my phone. (apps, safari browser etc.) The stylus's fibre tip was very responsive and made navigation a breeze. Where this device really shines is browsing the internet within the Safari browser, where navigation with a finger on the touch screen is less precise leading to miss clicks, the stylus was noticeably more precise, making browsing more efficient and easy. Where the stylus was unable to supplant the usage of my fingers on the Iphone 4 was text messaging/emails. Time to compose a message was dramatically increased when using the stylus. I would not use this device to send messages/emails because although more precise than the fingertip, the length of time to compose these messages was not practical.
Overall I really enjoy the NT62B. For my purpose I will continue to use the device for browsing the internet because of its precision on the smaller IPhone screen. The only suggestion I would make would be to include a carrying case or sleeve with the stylus to protect the fibre tip when not in use. (Posted on 10/6/13)

- Great stylus Review by Samuel
It feels and looks cheap upon a close inspection. I would never purchase this for near MSRP but @ $9 it's fantastic.
The copper/tan, silver and black colors are appealing.
I love Trent’s knit stylus tips – they glide, frictionless, across the screen making it much easier to play games, paint/write or use apps such as Swiftkey. I expect knit tips to last much longer than rubber tips which, from many reviews I’ve read, will crack and break after a certain period – that’s the nature of many rubbers types. Cloth will not have that problem.
Out of their packages, I like how the NT62B’s tip is firmer and thicker than the tips of the Trent combo pack IMP63T/NT63T tips. It feels more solid/responsive and does not drag like the thinner, springier tip. I guess I would say, it’s more ‘comfortable’ to use. In relations, the 62B’s firmer tip makes less squeaky noises caused by quick movements on an oily screen. They both seem to offer the same experience otherwise – same precision so I prefer the 62B’s combo pen stylus/tip more.
The pen works pretty well – feels good to use.
Removing/replacing the ink is simple but I wish that it had a funnel-like piece on the interior tip area to easily seat the cartridge – I find myself having to jabbed the cartridge up and down 2-10 times to get the ballpoint end to align with the hole that it must slide through to seat.
I like the plastic guard on the 63T which guards the screen from the metal tip but it seems highly unlikely that the metal on the 62B could ever make contact with the screen having a firmer, non-retractable tip.
Knit tip – durable frictionless material
Firmer and thicker knit tip
Convenient pen/stylus combination
Materials look and feel cheap / cheaply constructed
Refills can be annoying to seat
Stiff shirt clip
Refill cost (@MSRP) – Amazon cost is average.
Pen cost (@MSRP) – Amazon cost is great.
I prefer Trent’s styli to any others because of their unique knit tips. I give this product 4 stars for function.

- Best stylus ever Review by Cathy
- PRODUCT REVIEW/FEEDBACK - The Limir Stylus (IMP62B) Review by hai_bor0101
Ever since I got the Limir Stylus (IMP62B), I've used this stylus many times for note-taking in class on my iPad
Mini and other touchscreen devices -- using the apps "Pages", "OneNote" and "GoodNotes". In addition, the Limir
Stylus is not like any other stylus, this stylus has a micro-knit mesh tip (not rubber) which does not create a
squeaky sound when used on the touchscreen, which is why it is my #1 favourite stylus. The Limir Stylus is
versatile, durable and compact. As well, serves both functions of a stylus and a pen. More information on this
- Lightweight and fits into the hand comfortably
- The micro-knit mesh glides onto the screen effortlessly and is responsive
- Dual functionalities as a stylus and a pen
- Pen ink writes smoothly and glides onto the paper well
- Pen ink does not create any smudges or bleed into the paper
- Has a professional look, compact and feels sturdy/good quality
- Not bulky; like other styluses I've owned/used before
- Clip portion is a bit tight, needs to be loosened/adjusted
- A bit too short
- Colour choices for the stylus
- Ink colour choices such as blue and red
- Stylus needs to be a little bit longer by 1.5 cm
Nevertheless, the Limir Stylus (IMP62B) is a GREAT product "must-have" for those
who uses their touch-screen devices frequently. And I would highly recommend to
university students, especially, because of it's dual function abilities. Full ratings! 5/5~

- Not a bad product Review by Matthew
• Soft nib reassures you that the stylus is not doing any damage to the device screen.
• Very stylish and sleek design. Colours are similar to that used on the new iPhone 5S.
• The stylus appears to be as heavy as a good quality pen but is in fact very lightweight and easy to use as a result.
• The stylus feels and looks like a very good quality item.
• The stylus has a tendency to squeak when used on devices with screen protectors.
• The stylus is quite thick and thus it is more difficult to be accurate when tapping device.
• Because the stylus is soft, it can be difficult to press the iPhone home button using the stylus. (Posted on 9/23/13)

- Great Stylus for Note Taking Review by VinoVeritas
The stylus needed to able to provide a pen-like experience to make this transition as seamless as possible. The fit and comfort of the design is excellent. The weight and feel mimics that of a good ballpoint pen. The responsiveness of the stylus is excellent and the tablet captures the pen strokes accurately. The other aspect that I had read about regarding capacitive styli is that some can scratch the surface of the tablet. After a week, of using the New Trent IMP62B, that problem has not occurred. She uses it with her Google Nexus smartphone as well to avoid the normal fingerprint mess.
The ballpoint pen at the other end of the stylus is quite handy as well. While the colour and design makes it appealing to use without feeling like you are sacrificing the style of a nice ballpoint.
Although the stylus end is accurate, it would be nice if it could be smaller as it feels like you are writing with a cotton swab and not a ball point. Aside from this issue, it has allowed my wife to use her tablet to take notes and has reduced the challenge of organizing notes from a traditional note pad.
All in all, I would recommend this tool to friends and colleagues that need this functionality.

- Looks and feels well built! Review by Joseph
It isn't too long
The stylus end is high quality and feel great on a screen
The pen writes well
The construction of the unit feels very durable and of high quality
The stylus/pen looks professional
The cons in my mind are as follows.
The clip is a little too stiff and tends to cut or gouge any soft material you put it over
The rounded tip of the pen end of the stylus gets in the way sometimes if you don't hold the pen perfectly
Overall I enjoy using this pen for my business, and its fulfilled the tasks I need it for very well. The only real drawback I see with the pen is I have a leather case for my iPad and the loop for the stylus tends to get gouged and scratches by the clip on the stylus. The only other improvement I can think of would be to make the pen end a little less rounded and more pointed like a regular pen, to make writing with it a little more natural. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a nice stylus/pen combo. (Posted on 9/13/13)
- Great stylus with Pen feature Review by phil
I have a number of devices and have tested the stylus on all of them; the
main device in use has been the apple iPad 4th Generation, with
supplemental use on an android phone.
Construction of the Stylus
The Stylus is well constructed and feels like a quality item, the pointer
side of the stylus appears to be made of a soft metal mesh that mimics the
finger. The other end of the stylus has a retractable ballpoint used for
occasional note taking.
Good experiences of the Stylus.
Using the Stylus on the iPad has been a good experience in a number of
aspects. Due to the construction of the stylus it is very easy to draw,
select and accurately point with, on rubber ended stylus devices drawing is
an issue as the rubber grips the screen, The iPad does not require too much
accuracy on the screen so the benefit is limited on that devices, however
when using on my android phone the ability to quickly and accurately hit
areas of the screen, has been very useful.
I have also been surprised at how many times I have used the ballpoint
feature and this has become one of the best plus points of the stylus.
Improvements to the Stylus
I would like the stylus length to be longer I have quite large hands and
the stylus length was a bit short for prolonged use. I would also like the
ballpoint quality to be improved the ballpoint was a bit scratchy and did
not flow as well as I would hope. I would also like the choice of
additional finishes to the stylus colour. (Posted on 9/10/13)
- Excellent, low-cost stylus Review by CJ
-Hideaway pen is convenient in a pinch
-Leaves no marks on screen (unlike rubber stylus)
-Tracks very well on screen (unlike rubber stylus)
-The other side of being unobtrusive is that it is somewhat small to hold
-It appears somewhat cheap
-The tip too broad to do precise work
Overall: for the price, it is hard to beat. If my cons were addressed, I would gladly pay much more for this stylus. (Posted on 8/22/13)
- Great Quality Great Accuracy Review by Lynn
- Great Dual Purpose stylus Review by Michael
I like reviews that list clear pros and cons, so here is what I think so far.
Very smooth writing on my iPad. I use Notability daily and I can write as fast with this as I do on paper.
It writes easily without having to use too much pressure.
I like that I don't have to take a cap on and off of it. That was a pain with the Jot.
Very quiet. No clicking on the glass when writing.
I like that you twist to get the pen out instead of a click.
Having the pen and stylus in one means less I have to put in my pocket.
I know they supposedly just made this stylus longer, but to me it would be perfect if it were about 1/2 inch longer. It feels especially short when using the pen side.
The only color that I saw offered when I ordered would not be my first choice. I like darker colors. Either black or dark brown would be my preference. (Posted on 8/11/13)
- Excellent stylus tip, you'll wonder how you lived without it Review by vmom
The reason we like it so much is that the stylus has a superior tip surface glides easily on touch screens and is much more accurate for selecting small buttons than a finger. The rounded tip, which is made of a metallic looking micro-fiber, has a cushy "give" to it that also let's you press for a "click" feel. It is miles away better than the small stylus my daughter used to have for her Pantech phone. The stylus looks and feels well made and works very well.
The other side of the stylus is a pen with a tip that comes out when you turn the middle. I am not a fan of the pen. The length of the product (approximately 11 inches) make the pen too short for an adult to use comfortably for writing. Also, since both ends look similar in shape, it's easy to accidentally use the pen end on your touch screen. I've done this twice; luckily the pen was retracted so I did not get ink on my screen.
The clip on the stylus is a good idea, but it's a bit tight and hard to clip on to anything thicker than a sheet of paper or a cotton cloth pocket.
Overall I give the IMP62B/NT62B Limir Stylus 4 out of 5 stars. Great little accessory for any touch screen. (Posted on 7/26/13)

- FINALLY! A Smart Phone Stylus that works right!! Review by Chad M
Once I caved and realized that when using my iPad, testing the Android phones and tablets in addition to intricate work on my iPhone I found the stylus was something I missed when it wasn't with me. It makes using any of the touchscreen devices on the Smart Phones I've had the pleasure of testing far more accurate with touches and clicks.
Specific to this New Trent stylus, most other Stylus pens I used had a rubberish tip which worked. But, soon after using them a layer would wear off and the pens would start to squeak on the display. I looked for other options and found these New Trent solutions. They are absolutely wonderful, never squeak and prove to be even more accurate on screen.
I've used one for several months now and must say there is no signs of wear and I would consider myself a heavy user. I find myself rarely using the pen now as I'm faster and more confident on using my iPad with the stylus, but it's nice to have and not carry around 2 writing tools. If you are like me, my Padfolio and now my iPad case only had a single spot for a pen/stylus. This gives you the best of both world...sign paper documents when needed and have your smart device stylus all in one place.
This is a must have for anybody that uses a device with a touch screen! I hope this helps and thanks for the time read. (Posted on 6/16/13)

- Best Stylus Out There!!! Review by Shelby
- Good Stylus but Overpriced Review by CEagan
- Comfortable to hold
- Pen works well and writes smoothly
- Easy twisting mechanism brings out the pen tip
- Short pen fits comfortably into my hand
- Has a clip which allows me to hang it on the side of my iPad case
- Work well with both my iPad and my iPhone
- Helps keep my iPad screen clean since I no longer use my fingers
- The first one that I bought broke (although I have 4 others that work well and New Trent refunded my $ and paid for return shipping on the broken item).
- If you have large hands, the pen is only about 4-5" long so it may feel too small to write with.
- The $29.95 price tag is steep for what you get. The ball point pen isn't a high enough quality to justify that price. They sell it on Amazon for only $8.95 and free shipping with Amazon Prime which is what it is worth for the overall quality. (Posted on 5/13/13)

I've also used it on my Nexus phone and it works on this too - other styli have failed to register with this unless a lot of pressure is applied.

All in all I'm impressed, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it (Posted on 5/10/13)
- Superior to Rubber Stlyi Review by Stetson
and I wanted something that I use to "write" notes on the screen with. This
product works ok for taking notes. It is not as pin-pointed as a normal
writing instrument but we need to keep in mind the fact that this is a new
area and pencils, pen, and paper have been around for ages. I'm sure these
products will be redefined eventually. This product is already ahead of the
competition with the rubber tips. This doesn't have the normal rubber tips
that catch on a touch screen but it has a metal fiber type of material and
literally glides across the screen. When pushing it down it also provides a
nice little "give" to it.
The fact that there is a pen on the other side is great! I use this in
meetings so I can keep electronic notes; however, not everything can be
taken down electronically, so when I need to jot something down quick, this
is perfect. It isn't the best pen in the world, but I didn't expect it to
be and it still gets the job done! The metal clip on the side is also a
nifty feature so you can clip it into a shirt pocket and not lose it.
The only thing that I would change would be to make the pen refillable. I'm
not quite sure if it is already, I would need to look into it, but other
than that it is great! It is much better than those rubber tipped ones you
can buy anywhere. (Posted on 5/4/13)

1) The stylus works flawlessly

1) No cap for the stylus end of the pen to protect it when it's not being used
2) Wish the pen end of the stylus was more pointed and less oval shaped
3) The stylus itself is slightly shorter than the length of a standard pen so it
psychologically feels a bit odd(e.g. like you are holding a crayon) while writing in pen mode (Posted on 4/30/13)
- Excellent iPhone/iPad tool! Review by Claudia
— It’s sensitive and precise.
— It’s quiet. I use a protective film on the screen of my iPad, and the iPhone is in an OtterBox case with a built-in screen protector. In both cases, the Limir Stylus works efficiently. I’d noted a bit of squeaking when used with my iPad before changing the film which was old and probably had some body oil residue on it. After applying a new protective film, no issues— sensitive, precise, and quiet!
—The retractable pen is a nice extra feature.
— The size works well for the size of my hands. It might be slightly small for someone with larger hands; it felt a bit small to my husband’s larger hands. (Posted on 4/25/13)

The touch tip works consistently well and is easy to point accurately. It is very good to draw and paint with and truly excellent for candy crush saga! I am faster at typing with my fingers, but the stylus is better for pointing and selecting eg on web sites.
It has a clip in case you want to carry it in a breast pocket or hand bag. The twist reveal pen is also a useful feature.
The dull gold and black colour scheme, with chrome touches is handsome and the surface textures are very pleasing and give good grip. The little ridges near the tip let you know by feel that you have it correctly gripped. (Posted on 4/22/13)
- Best Stylus out there! Review by Kirk
1. I like the modern look of the pen. It appears a bit of thought was put into the look of the pen. The colors work well in a professional environment.
2. I would like the size of the pen to be a bit longer. It is not "too" small though. It works.
1. As i travel quite a bit, this pen has taken a good beating and still functions perfectly.
2. Replacing the ink cartridge can be done with ease. I had a bit of difficulty putting the cartridge back into the pen, but no big issue. I do use the pen function quite a bit.
3. The clip on the side of the pen has almost no clearance. It is near impossible to clip to a shirt pocket. With a bit of struggle, I did manage to make it work. I attempted to slide the clip over a sheet of paper and it was difficult. Due to this, I never really used the clip. Recommend making the clip usable or removing it altogether.
4. The stylus tip is phenomenal. Great design and holds up well. The only recommendation i would make is to allow for replacement. A possible solution would be to make the tip retainer a threaded device. If the tip were to get damaged, a user could order replacement tip and screw on the new one.
1. Pen: As stated above, I do use the pen. I love the dual function. Writing can be done with ease. I normally only write in meetings taking notes. 90% of the time, I am typing on computer or IPAD.
2. Stylus: The sytlus is the best I have ever tested. I use it on my iPAD and Iphone. We even purchased another and my wife uses it on her Nook. There is no drag as compared to all other sytluses we have used. When trying to draw or sign documents on my ipad, it closely duplicated the feel of writing on a sheet of paper with a pen.
Cannot say enough about this Stylus! Great product. I will keep buying these as i need them. Thanks for a great product.

Additionally, I found my devices respond more quickly and accurately to touches from this stylus with a fabric tip than from my finger. Other reviews I've read indicated other people have had issues with the rubber- and plastic-tipped styli out there that this one does not have.
Despite my overall lack of need of a pen in this digital world, it is handy that one is hidden away inside for those times when you would gladly commit murder to get your hands on one. Also, the pen seems better than a cheap dollar store generic in that it writes smoothly and consistently.
The weight and size are reasonable. (Posted on 4/10/13)
- Sturdy Pen and Stylus Review by srsp0
The stylus was something I haven't seen before on other similar products. Its made of a metal mesh oppose to a rubber point which gives it a higher quality feel. It did also seem to glide across surfaces more than competitors although sometimes a high pitched squeak was made. The noise seemed to be most prevalent when amt pressure was being applied. Not a huge problem but can get kind of annoying.
Overall It's a great product that works well, looks nice, and feels very sturdy and reliable both as a pen and a stylus. (Posted on 4/10/13)

- Handy Little Pen Review by Megan
That said, I do very much enjoy the fact that this is 2 pens in one. In some situations I far prefer using the pen with my iPad than my finger; signing documents (being in real estate I do this somewhat often), using drawing programs and some games where items to be manipulated are rather close together. I am also in the habit of jotting down a lot of quick notes to myself...reminders of things that need to be done as well as notes when reading or studying documents. With this pen I don't have to get up and go searching for a pen to write with.
This pen did not come with instructions although being what it is you'd pretty much think they are not needed. However, it was not immediately obvious how the ballpoint pen feature is to be activated. I pulled the pen apart before realizing it should be twisted. It went back together easily so no harm done. The 2nd reason I would've liked instructions was so as to be able to learn if and where ink refills are available.

Grip: The 3 grooves toward the tip where you hold with your fingers is sufficient to not allow even very clean hands without oils on them not have the stylus slip. At first glance after opening the package from the mail, I thought the black portion might actually be made of a soft rubber, like material on other devices.
Clip: The clip is nice and sturdy. A pleasant surprise and actually useful as a result as you don't fear it coming un-clipped from your pocket and falling out.
Tip: Definitely the best feature of the stylus as what I never enjoyed with the rubber tipped styluses was the fact that they caused increased friction on the tablet surface which is not conducive to sketching. Yes, you learn to deal with it but, with the mesh of this stylus, that sticking drag is simply not there and very smooth. A really nice feature.
Pen: Clearly a convenience feature there and not too bad as such either. Refills offered on their website.
Size: I have what I would consider smaller hands than average and imagine they took that the average human hand size into consideration when designing this stylus and determining the length, perhaps. I would wonder if someone with larger hands would find it as easy to use as I do.
This is a simple device which does exactly what it is meant to do and does it well. (Posted on 4/3/13)

- Love my NewTrent Stylus IMP62B Review by Sherri
- A new idea on the touch screen stylus Review by Bogdan
I like the fabric used for the stylus because it glides better than a regular rubber end stylus, especially on screens protected by a plastic sheet such as Zagg invisibleShield. The fabric stylus also needs less pressure than a rubber stylus for certain applications.
I would like to know the type of ball pen refill that can be used to replace the original one. It would be nice if a stylus end/fabric replacement is available for when it gets damaged or worn out. (Posted on 3/17/13)
- Definitely a serious stylus-pen combo! Review by Ahmed
First of all, I'm a fan of the capacitive fabric tip. I've owned rubber tips before, and I don't hate them, but I like fabric tips because of the smoother glide factor. To me, it feels more like natural writing. Another thing I like about the tip is that it's a bit wider than most tips (about 8mm - about the diameter of a Bic pen). Normally, this wouldn't be a happy thing (because of the greater surface area - less accuracy). However, New Trent pulled this design off well; even though it's wider, it has the perfect radius and so it feels really sturdy against a glass surface. In other words you can get pretty accurate but not feel like you're worried about damaging a small/frail tip
The pen is another surprise I had. In my experience, this has been difficult to do well. My hopes were especially low because this is a twist pen and it didn't have that narrowing tip. What surprised me was actually how commonly I used it and how comfortable it feels. I think this is true mostly for two reasons: (1) the weight of the pen is really well distributed and (2) the roller-ball pen type is a great quality (no streaks or blank spots).
A couple of critiques, one is the clip is a little tight, although it's still better than one that's too loose but I worry about how long it'll last if I'm too rough with it. As of now, it's been a month and still going strong! Another critique comes back to the twist-pen. I'm not a fan of that twist motion, mostly because it's so easy to go past the end point and lose the friction you need to activate the twist mechanics over time.
Overall, I rated this stylus 5 stars because of one last but important characteristic. The price! If the stylus broke $20-$30, I would've rated it 4 stars at most but it gets 5 because it's a great product under a great price point ($10).
Enjoy! (Posted on 3/12/13)
- More Accurate than Expected Review by Alex
I was pleasantly surprised at just how accurate I was able to be, once you touch the tip to the screen it flows smoothly and effortlessly (my anti-glare/fingerprint screen protector may also be making a difference in that). Regardless I am quite satisfied with its performance. I should also note that the installed ball point pen writes very nice, much better than any old BIC, no skips or clogs yet. (Posted on 3/12/13)
- Interesting take on a touchscreen stylus Review by Brendan
is not what I would expect normally from a "stylus" although this is good
in this case. The stylus has a soft "cotton-like" tip which is roughly the
diameter of a finger which works surprisingly well on a touchscreen. This
soft feel makes the stylus less jarring to use. The stylus is much smaller
than I expected, but again this isn't a pen and shouldn't be treated as
such (more on that in a minute). The size and weight are appropriate for
As for the pen, I would say that it works well as a pen, seems to write
nicely. The only negatives are that being so short it feels somewhat
strange in my hand to write with. Additionally, the "pen-clip" is located
on the end which houses the pen and could be distracting - although this is
a pretty minor gripe.
Lastly, the only negative I can point to with the stylus itself is just a
concern about the ruggedness of the soft tip. I believe it is a good
design, and appears high quality, but I'm not sure how it stands up to a
sharp object. Certainly it shouldn't encounter sharp objects regularly,
but I could see throwing this item in a briefcase and it bouncing around
with other items which could damage the tip.
One oddity I noticed on my Droid Razr was that the stylus "squeaks" when
moving on my screen. I think perhaps this is because I have a rubber like
screen protector on my phone (Zagg). I don't recall this noise when using
it with my Nexus 7 (which also has a Zagg product on it). It's not really
distracting and may go away as the product is "worn-in". However, I could
see it being an annoyance over time (not sure what could be done to change
Again, the unique design should be applauded and I would rate this 4+
stars. I'd have to think long and hard if I take away 1 star for the pen
feature as I think it would cause hand cramps to use, but I also wouldn't
find a pen necessary to include (it's a bonus!). (Posted on 3/8/13)

Overall, a very useful tool for touch screens and is better than other styluses I've tried. (Posted on 3/1/13)
- Great Product! Well Worth Getting! Review by Adam
It is a perfect, compact size which both looks good and works well. The stylus end is of a high quality and works really well with both my tablet & smartphone being used to touch and swipe. This responds perfectly on both devices. The pen part of the product Is very neatly hidden away but again, also easy to “reveal” and use, it even worked first time, unlike other biros!
Overall, this is a great, high quality product that it clearly built to last and please a lot of people. Well worth buying!

- Good quality, excellent value Review by Anthony
Having the pen tip on the back of it saves me from having to bring a separate pen -- there is nothing worse than being at a meeting where they pass around a sign-in sheet and I have to borrow a pen because I only have my stylus. The only downside I see is that I fidget a bit, and I've occasionally left the pen tip out, so I wrote on myself a couple times. I should probably try to attend fewer boring meetings! All in all, a great product and fantastic value for the money! Thanks New Trent! (Posted on 2/27/13)

- Nice little Stylus! Review by Doreen
Packaging was very nice
Charges easily in my computer USB port
Syncing the IPAD was very easy - just hit the connect button and it found my IPAD - punch in a number that is shown on screen and the sync is complete.
The keyboard is definitely small and will take time to get use to. Still I feel that once you get use to the touch you will also get use to the smallness of the keyboard. I can't type as quick as I can on a regular keyboard but I am definitely typing quicker then if I was just using the keypad on the IPAD
The NT38B is very well constructed & the IPAD is well protected. I had the Smart Cover before I got this product to protect my IPAD & the 38B protects the IPAD & keyboard quite nicely.
It is very comfortable to work on sitting on my lap. I have a little lapdesk that I use so it is nice & flat while typing on the keyboard. I can easily watch TV & be answering emails all at the same time.
I believe the Amazon price was $53 for this product. The quality of the NT 38B is well worth the price. I have read reviews of some other keyboards that are more money but the NT38B is great for the price.
The space bar is short so you seem to hit the bottom part of the keyboard case quite a few times while typing so words get put together.
The only other issue I have with the product is how it opens & closes. It doesn't seem to slide easily. Again not a big deal.
I have used the keyboard for about 2 weeks now doing emails and making notes and I have had to recharge the keyboard only once since my initial charge when I received it.
All in all I would highly recommend this product to anyone who would like a keyboard for their IPAD.
Review of the IMP62B Stylus
When I received the product I thought it was just one pen type stylus but it was actually two (2) small black & white styluses packaged in a clear plastic case. Operation is just like a pen using a clicking motion. They are small in size & have a clip so that they fit securely in a shirt pocket or stored easily in a portfolio or pocketbook. The tips have a felt feel & work well on the IPAD & IPhone5. I noticed that while playing a game on the IPAD, the stylus sometimes doesn't grab that well so you have to go over it a second time. This product does not include a pen on the other end but in reality I probably wouldn't use the pen even if it was there. Product is sleek & slim & I would recommend the product to my friends.

- Great pen Review by Mark
1. The felt tip gives the stylus a much smoother movement on the screen unlike rubber tips.
2. The pen on the back helps a lot in class from switching between my iPad and my notebook.
3. It is slightly heavier which I like because I feel like the weight and look are luxurious for not a high price.
1. Short pen. The size of the pen makes it difficult to write on the iPad because my palm touches the screen. It would work better with the iPad mini or touchscreen phone.
2. Little clicking noise when the room is quiet and you touch the screen.
Overall, I do enjoy using this product and if it does break I would consider purchasing another. Buy one and try it because they price is not ridiculous for what you get.

- Best stylus on the market Review by Nancy
1. As a stylus, it glides across the screen well. The mesh is so much better than the rubber ones I have tried before.
2. It is really the best stylus I have owned as you can write as if using a pen and it keeps up and is accurate.
3. The pen is cute and I like how it retracts when not in use. I like that the tip of the pen is small and one can write precisely.
4. I like the size of the whole stylus. It is small and light, easy to carry and dual purpose.
1. The clip should go. I don't like the feel of using the pen and trying to grip around the clip; it is awkward. And few people use a clip these days. Ladies don't keep pens in pockets.
2. The ink is blotchy in the pen and has already bled onto my right hand as I write. There has to be better ink available that lays the ink smoothly on the paper without smudging and leaving big extra blotches. A roller ball would be ideal.
3. It would be nice to have more color choices for those who buy.
4. There were no directions and while easy to use, the only question is where to buy ink refills. (Posted on 2/23/13)
- Great Stylus Review by Sam
The pen is a simple ballpoint pen but it's convenient to have.
My only 'cons' to this stylus would be the length and weight. It isn't very heavy, which is a personal preference. Secondly, it is a little small if you have larger hands. But it's still fully functional and very easy to use. These would simply be suggested improvements to the stylus.
Great stylus to have and I highly recommend it. (Posted on 2/22/13)
- New Trent IMP62B Limir Stylus and Pen Truly Amazing Review by Roger
This stylus / pen combo is truly amazing.
I compared it against my, now previous, favorite stylus and the first thing I noticed was the conductive writing portion.
One common complaint I have with my existing stylus is that it's too soft and grabs the screen at times instead of gliding smoothly. It was a nice stylus but the writing feel was never really natural.
The New Trent IMP62B has a writing material that is slight not only slightly firmer but also has a texture to it that prevents the rubber on glass feel as you're writing. As amazed as I was with the writing quality, I was even more impressed when I used it as a drawing stylus to do some artwork. None of my previous stylus's have had the finesse and ease of flow that this one has.
The fact that it has a retractable, replaceable ballpoint pen built into the other hand is just pure bonus.
It has firmly earned it's place as my stylus I take with me everywhere,
My only wish is that it also came in a model about 2-3cm longer for home use as a drawing / artist stylus as that extra length would make it feel perfect for working on artwork at home. (Posted on 2/20/13)
- great little stylus Review by Vanessa
- Nice stylus, functional pen Review by Eugene
definitely makes touching the screen a lot more precise. Fits well in my
hand (I have relatively small hands however). Pen is useful but only if
you forgot your real pen.
Cons: I've found it a big awkward to grip it when using it as a pen (too
short and no grip are the likely culprits). So I wouldn't recommend using
it as your go to pen! (Not a big deal considering the pen function is
secondary). Was squeaking when running it along my screen initially,
thought this seems to have been diminishing as I have been using it.
Overall: Nice stylus, and functional emergency pen. (Posted on 2/16/13)
- Love it Review by Tirta
My last three capacitive stylus were using rubber tip (without built-in pen).
The stylus definitely glides very smoothly on the tablet/phone.
I have tested using ios devices (iphone 4/ipod/iPad3) and Android devices (Touchpad, Nexus4).
1. The device works very well on both ios and Android devices
2. Built-In pen is nice even though I do not expect it will replace your normal pen.
3. Price is affordable
4. Good design
5. Weight is right, not too heavy and not too light.
1. I wish it could come with more colors
2. It does not work well with screen protector otherwise it works flawlessly.
Phone -> The one that have screen protector have some gliding problem.
Tablets -> none have screen protected so it works flawlessly
If you would like to replace the ink, based on one customer feedback (in amazon) it would be: D1 Mini 2 5/8"
Highly recommended if you have tables/phones without screen protector. (Posted on 2/16/13)

- I'm in love with the Micro-Knit Technology Capacitive Review by Andre
- The Micro-Knit Technology Capacitive is awesome! I have a rubber tip stylus and Micro-knit technology is years ahead of that! This is what took me to buy it and I am amazed with it..
- The stylus writes smoothly on the iPad (even having a screen protector on it) which is something the rubber tip one is not great at. Also it is very precise so great to take notes both on my Post-graduation classes and at work (to-dos, meetings, etc.)
- The look and feel of the stylus is really nice. Initially I was a bit sceptical about the gold&black combination but I think it looks very nice.
- The weight is well distributed, i.e. it feels comfortable to write both on paper and on the iPad
- the pen writes very well
- the price is very competitive
- the package was very good. the plastic tube is not fancy but protects the stylus very well.
- the pen is not protected with a cap that you can loose.
- I just got the stylus a couple of days ago and so far I couldn't find major flaws.
- I think it is a bit too short, it would be nice to have it a bit longer (maybe 1 or 2 cms longer?). More a nice to have rather than a disadvantage really.
- There is no option of choosing a pen with blue ink
- I needed an thin object (in my case a pen) to take the stylus out of the plastic tube. It helps to protect it whilst travelling but it is not practical if you want to use the tube as case to carry the stylus
- add other stylus colour to the portfolio
- add more options re ink colour
- advertise it more on Amazon. I just found it by chance and amazingly is the one with more and best reviews.

- Excellent Stylus Review by bob
- Great Stylus! Review by Mike
- Really good stylus/pen combo Review by Russ
The micro fabric stylus functions great. This is much, much smoother than any rubber tipped stylus I have used. It does not jump or catch on the screen and the responsiveness is fantastic. Significant improvement for note-taking on iPad. Also really good is the ballpoint pen. The ink flows well.
The pen/stylus is too short and not hefty enough. It is very solidly built, but it feels too small to hold comfortably, at least for me. Still very usable, just could be much better if it felt more like a real, substantial pen. Aside from size/feel, the only other negative is that the clip on the pen is way too tight...to the point that it is hard to clip into a shirt pocket. If you'd prefer a smaller pen or have smaller hands, this may be the perfect solution. (Posted on 2/6/13)
- Bought this on Amazon, it performs great. Review by Simon
This is an awesome combination pen/stylus however and feels pretty good in the hand.
My purpose for purchasing this is to use it as an awesome all-in-one physical, digital tool.. write on paper when I need it for real life use and write digitally when working with notes and content creation.
I've personally used this for drawing within the Sketchbook Mobile/Express apps as well as Flipaclip and it works wonderfully, it is pretty responsive (if you use the sides it'll be less responsive.. but still working).
I've tested this on my Surface RT, my Nexus 4, and my Galaxy S3 - safe to say it performs admirably on my Android devices.
- on my Surface RT there's a small issue with touch response, more related to the RT having some delayed response more than the stylus, but it will work (you can see the responsiveness difference in Sketchbook Mobile on RT).
Neat things: the fiber feels great to touch and it hasn't worn down too much (little bit of wear visible but still fine) and it feels like there's a spring inside.. its not a rubber little nub like most styluses but more realistically a non-catching finger like tool, and it offers better precision than your finger for those necessary needs.
--> I drew a ~700 clip animation with this stylus, something I definitely can't with my finger.
Also: it works with matte screen protectors on my devices. (Posted on 2/3/13)

- Small, efficiently designed, effective stylus Review by Robin
The stylus works well, it's responsive and it saves your screen from grease streaks if you use it instead of your fingers. The pen side writes smoothly. The stylus end works as well as can be expected with the round-tip design that all styli have these days. I've used it for doodling/drawing and for writing (in iPad apps, Paper by 54 and Moleskine). For both of these things it is better to have a stylus. However, with the rounded tip, I can't take notes as I would on a notepad, but of course it comes with a pen as well. The pen/stylus functions are efficiently combined, being on opposite ends from each other. The body of the stylus/pen combo seems sturdy, it is not cheap plastic, and it has a clip for attaching to a sleeve. It is feather-light. The product comes with a disposable clear plastic case to protect it during shipping.
Cons: The size might not work for someone with bigger hands. The pen (for paper) is alright for a backup - the small size and the unusual shape on the pen side work against using it on a permanent basis. The stylus tip feels very delicate, but it seems to be the same composition as every other stylus tip on the market at this time. Until something better comes out, with any stylus you have to be careful.
The plastic case it comes with doesn't hold over well for daily use, as it fits a little too tightly to tuck the stylus in on the go. Removing it from said plastic casing requires literally sticking something else inside the casing to push the pen out.
This New Trent IMP62B stylus is effective for writing, drawing, and for general use on touchscreens. It makes me nervous that there is nothing to protect the delicate fiber tip of the stylus. The build quality is solid, and it looks nice. (Posted on 1/31/13)

The stylus is very well constructed and the microfiber tip is durable, The tip is firm enough to provide just the right amount of pressure form my Android tablet. I use my tablet to take handwritten notes and this stylus works the best of any stylus I have used.

writing on an ipod touch. The stylus feels good in your hand and works

the stylus may be used instead of the stylus end on the ipod touch. I'd

- Great little device Review by Anweathe
1. A varying colour range ...I can see these being popular in our house and specific colours may solve some arguments !
2. Not sure how often the ink pen will get used. It may be worth considering a pen without that would bring the price down and compete more readily with the many budget stylus pens out there
3. Some consideration to the way the pen clip works. I have a leather case on my Kindle Fire and the clip is so tight that I cannot get the pen to clip onto the case
1. Without doubt the best feature of the pen is the micro knit tip. It glides over all devices tested on. Only had it a week, so cant comment on durability.
2. Design ...its the smartest stylus I have used as opposed to many of the cheap looking pens
3. Grip – the grooves definitely help with the gripping of the pen ...especially when playing some games
Overall, I have been really impressed with this stylus. I use it daily on my Kindle Fire and it glides across my new screen protector (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fimir-Guaranteed-Anti-Glare-Protector-IMP66B/dp/B006G297FA/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1358856302&sr=1-1). I mainly read books on the Kindle but do use email and Facebook apps ...and have also tested on a few games (Angry Birds and Solitaire). The tip is so much easier to use than the rubber ones (which also tend to be very inconsistent in the level of drag they have). Also tested on the raw screen of an iPad 2 ...my kids loved the pens and looks like I will be forking out for new ones for them too (a boy and a girl - hence the idea of different colours). They have used them for game play and also tested on the Draw app ...the stylus is very responsive – it draws what you want and when trying to write it was so much easy than a rubber tip. Overall, even with the pen and the current price, I would definitely buy another.

- Great for small hands. Very compact. Review by Bart
All styli up to this point have had rubber tips which catch and drag on
the capacitive surfaces of "iThings". This stylus utilizes a micro-knit
technology. In other words, the tip of the stylus is not rubber, but
rather a fabric. I found the stylus to glide across my iPad much more
smoothly. Apps for artistic purposes were far easier to work with due to
this new technology. I did find that I had to apply more pressure to the
stylus than that of a rubber tip, but once I became comfortable with the
adjustment, this was not an issue. The opposite end of the stylus contains
a small pen for writing purposes. There is no removable cap, rather the
pen jacket is rotated and the pen extends from the end of the stylus. The
pen writes comfortably and is of adequate quality. My hands are large and
I found this stylus a little uncomfortable to use due to the smaller form
factor. It is an inch shorter than than the other brands I have laying
around. My wife, however, thought it was quite nice in her much smaller
hands. I appreciate the addition of the pocket clip as many styli on the
market are simple round tubes that roll around and are challenging to
transport. While I will not be using this stylus/pen due to size, it will
find a place in my wife's purse for use on her iPad and iPhone. (Posted on 1/24/13)

Is not fine enough point for precision or for writing instrument
Sleek design, which is light and small enough to clip on tablet cover
Could be too small for large hands
Love the pen on opposite end; a dual purpose instrument
Concerned about the quality because twice during my first 6 hours of usage the unit separated apart into two pieces
I was able to compare this stylus to a previous purchased item. I was impressed with the Limir in many ways: the pen and stylus usage, the soft material which is gentle on my tablet screen, the sleek petite design as well as the sophisticated look/color. This stylus looks is functional in both a pen and tablet stylus which I was looking for. I do wish it was more precise as I am looking for a dual purpose stylus that I too am able to write on my Tablet notepad with. (Posted on 1/22/13)
- My new favorite Review by Chelsea
- Solid quality, nice tight twister, stylus works in ways a rubber tip can't Review by Ben
The ballpoint writes smoothly, doesn't skip too much. another thing I like is that although it activates by twist, it stays out during writing. (Ever use those loose twist pens that retract as you write? This isn't one of those.)
The pocket clip makes a nice grip, thumb on one side, index on the other. You fountain pen fans who know the Namiki (Pilot) Vanishing Point pen will recognize this immediately.
This is a SOLID feeling pen. Not cheap at all. I took off one star only because I am starting to see some fibers on the tip from putting it in my pocket. But I am trading that for durability; i know that rubber tips disintegrate and then--there goes my dual function stylus! (Posted on 1/18/13)

- This microfiber stylus/ballpoint pen is a great deal Review by Mollie
The stylus is well balanced and well-weighted. It looks just like an expensive pen, only a bit shorter, right down to the shirt pocket clip on the pen cap. The woven microfiber tip slides smoothly over the surface of the iPhone and iPad. At first, I wanted a normal length pen, but then I realized it was the same length as the iPhone – perfect, if you keep it clipped to the side of the iPhone case. The stylus works very well on the iPhone. I also tried it on my iPad mini -- I found I had to push a bit harder when typing on the keypad, but swiping was the same – smooth.
The ball point pen, which – unexpectedly -- screws out the top of the pen cap is very useful for times when I needed to sign in actual ink. No digging around for an ink pen when you’re holding the stylus and iPhone -- also no more juggling two pens. The ballpoint pen probably is better for quickie tasks than long term writing. I have only one minor issue -- I thought the shirt pocket clip was just a bit too tight. Like I said - that's really minor. The stylus/pen is great! (Posted on 1/8/13)

- Great function, great style Review by VG
The pen feature is excellent and a great addition to the convenience of having a stylus. The pen is comfortable to use and writes well. The mesh tip is also easy and comfortable to use when writing or navigating.
As I used the stylus for navigating on my iPad 2 and iPhone 4, I found that this was much easier than using my index finger to go from page to page and to make selections of text. Writing freestyle was easy when using a doodling application on the iPad 2. I enjoyed the convenience of having a pen nearby for practical items that I wanted to jot quickly, so this Stylus and Pen combo has become an integral part of my organizing station which holds my iPad and iPhone.

beauty! I have owned this product for a couple days now and since then I
have used it on an Ipad 2, Iphone 4S, Samsung Galaxy Tablet, Samsung
4G and Amazon Kindle Fire/HD. It worked on all of them. The main thing I
like about the stylus is the the Micro-Knit fiber point, it's soft, it
moves smoothly on a touch screen surface. Honestly when i use the Limir
stylus I am faster on a touch screen with it than I am with my own
fingers. By the way don't forget about the retractable pen on the other
end, writes very smooth, Great Addition! For the design and color, the
whole stylus is just sleek and eloquent, colors match up nicely. In all the
New Trent Limir Stylus is fantastic product. What I would like to see in
the next stage of the Limir stylus is maybe a light inside the stylus,
behind the micro-knit fiber, that would be nice!!! (Posted on 12/31/12)

i am almost impossible to please when it comes to ink pens. this pen isn't bad, but does apply a bit too thick which makes it prone to splotching.
other than that, the mechanism (twist) to make the pen tip available is quality and the pen tip retracts fully back into the top end of the stylus.
the length is 4 3/8" (closed) and 4 1/2" (with pen tip exposed), which is a perfect length for my small hands.
i fully recommend New Trent's stylus for anyone who enjoys using them or has a need for one. New Trent's stylus can be used on any touch screen device, and helps eliminate fingerprints!
i personally could never go back to a plain rubber tip stylus!! (Posted on 12/28/12)

- Good Stylus Review by Peter
need it is ideal. Here is the good and the bad
I like that it is very responsive, have very minimal skip and is very
reliable. The tip however does not have a fine tip, so if you are using it
for anything other than blunt selection, it can be difficult to use. It is
small and compact and fits in most any case. I personally would like to
have had it a little larger, so i can feel the weight and size while i'm
working. There is a pen attached which is retractable and at first I
thought it was added as an afterthought, however it is actually a pretty
decent pen. I'm not expecting it to last forever, but it writes smoothly
and cleanly and gets the job done.
Overall I do enjoy my stylus. It is a good product and it is great for
those of us who use our tablets on the job (works wells on phones too) and
do not wish to constantly be cleaning up finger prints and smudges. It is
great for blunt selection, but if you are looking for something to draw
with or give a good signature, unfortunately this is not your product. I
use my regularly if used for the how i described, it will not disappoint.
Overall: Good Product (Posted on 12/27/12)
- Cool Stylus and Pen Review by Sálongo
I had read a lot of reviews for styluses since I do a lot of note taking on the iPad and the finger was not a viable option. I have New Trent Micro-Knit Retractable Stylus and I micro fiber tip. My wife has an iPad 2 and after she tried my stylus she wanted one but she also believes in having paper and pencil as and also wants to travel light. I went looking and found the Limir Stylus, which has a micro knit tip one on end and a replaceable retractable ballpoint pen on the other end. It arrived in a few days ago and it glides effortlessly across the screen of the iPad, iPhone and the Android phone she uses. We both like it because we can use on the touch screens of our phone and iPad and if we need to write a quick note on a paper pad we don’t have to put down the stylus and hunt around for a pen.
The retractable ballpoint pen and the micro knit tip was the key selling point for me and it is very responsive and feels natural. What I would like to see is a twist to retract stylus tip so it does not get damaged or dirty while carrying it in a pocket or bag.
This was a great gift for my wife and I’ve order one for myself as a back to my other retractable stylus by New Trent.

- Overall Great Product Review by John
size it is easy to attach to your suite or shirt pocket and not feel
weighted down. There are several features that also stand out. The small
ridges on the handle for the stylus make it easier to hold onto then the
old stylus’s that used to come from the top of older tablets. With its ball
point pen option from the top the styles allows for quick screen to paper
movement. The ball point pen has exceptional writing quality also allowing
for smooth signature or note taking. On a scale from 1 to 5 with 5 being
the best. I would rate this stylus a 5 for its appearance and simplicity.
Great product! (Posted on 12/22/12)
- Great stylus~ Review by Karen
fits well in my hand. The micro-knit tip is quite responsive and the
built-in pen writes very well. One thing I would like to see is perhaps a
thinner sized tip to write/draw finer details. Otherwise, the size of the
stylus is great and feels great in my hands. I would recommend this stylus
to anyone who wants to spare themselves having to carry an extra pen around
when they already have a stylus. (Posted on 12/21/12)
- Best stylus i've used! Review by Nick
- Great feel
- Doubles as an ink pen
- Evenly balanced
- Accurate when using as a stylus as slides great across the screen because of the capacitive mesh.
IMP62B stylus pen improvements
- I’d like to see it a little heavier
-Length, it would be nice to see it longer as I have big hands and long fingers.
The IMP62B stylus pen is a great product. I’ve had other stylus pens but they do not match up to this stylus pen. The first and biggest thing I fell in love with is the capacitive mesh. It slides and responds a lot easier than the rubber or metal tip that you find with other stylus pens. The only improvement I can possibly think of is if it was a little bit longer and a little heavier. I’m a bigger guy and so the smaller stylus feels a little uncomfortable in my hand however, the performance highly out weighs this con. I would recommend this pen to anyone who uses a stylus!

- Great stylus! Review by Karen
This stylus is short and stout. I have small hands and find the stylus to be a bit too thick, and would prefer it thinner. With that said, my father whom is 83 years old and has mild arthritis in his hands finds it very handy, and really easy to use. For my use, the pen clip is definitely in the way when using as a writing instrument and would prefer it without the clip. Again though, I think this is just a matter of personal preference and use. I will primarily use mine as a stylus and do find it to be of superior quality. The design and color are attractive and the pen is an added bonus. This is an excellent value for the price. It is small enough to put in your shirt pocket or handbag and have it ready when needed for your touch device or signature.
Truly another great product by New Trent. The only reason I don't give the New Trent IMP62B (1 PC) Limir Stylus/Styli Touch Screen Cell phone Tablet Pen Champa Dual-Purpose with Micro-Knit Technology Capacitive Stylus + Fine Ball Pen for iPhone 5, 4s, 4, iPod touch iPad (improved version 10mm longer) 5 stars is because the "perfect" stylus for me would be thinner.
Overall, I definitely recommend this stylus by New Trent! (Posted on 12/21/12)

- Very nice IPAD Stylus Review by charles
As far as other tablets and Phones, I tried the stylus on my wife's Iphone 5, My LG Optimus and my Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and here is my feedback
While the Stylus is a outstanding Apple Stylus and performed nicely on my LG Phone the screen was to small to get a good feel for anything over normal Stylus. I used a paint app on all of these platforms and the Stylus did not miss on the Ipad Iphone or LG, the LG had issues on the side of the screen for some reason and I believe it was a Phone issue but I would be aware of this.
As far as the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 there is something with the processing of the screen on the tablet that the paint app only registered 90% of the touches from the stylus, my screen was clean and the stylus missed spots when coloring in the screen.
Overall I would not recommend this for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 because of this just because the glitching get frustrating. The IPAD, IPHONE 5, and LG Optimus I would recommend it. My primary use for the Stylus is for the IPAD and I am very Satisfied with this purchase as response, feel, and comfort are excellent. (Posted on 12/19/12)

- Nice gadget Review by Rochelle
- Nice Multi-Use Stylus! Review by Nicole
The mesh tip gives it an advantage over other types of stylus' with rubber or metal tips because it can glide smoothly across the front of your device, even if you are using a screen protector. It is also nice to have the clip, great feature for those on the go or in business settings. It is easy to clip inside the pocket and since the pen feature is at the top you don't' have to worry about any ink seeping out into your pocket or getting on your shirt.
A few minor improvements could be having it be a little longer like normal pen length and also have more of a grip where you hold the stylus to write.
Overall I feel this is a quality and affordable product and would highly recommend to anyone with a touch screen device. (Posted on 12/17/12)
- Good stylus / pen combination Review by V'rasana
use with touch screen devices. This is the first stylus I have
purchased and I must say I am on the whole quite pleased. The stylus is
comfortable to hold and light weight; making it an easy choice for those
on the go or minding their carry-on weight. I found the stylus very
easy to use with my iPhone 4. As a matter of fact, I prefer using it
over scrolling around with my fingers. One thing that I think might be
improved was in the area of writing. I downloaded an app called My
Script to test out the handwriting capabilities so I could try out the
stylus and found that it was difficult to make a period or dot. As far
as the pen, it was comfortable enough and convenient to have the
two-in-one functionality. (Posted on 12/15/12)
- A great stylus! Review by Jesus
smooth transition when writing at different angles. The weight of the
stylus is very comfortable. Not too heavy to fatigue my hand, but not so
light that it makes it difficult to write with.
The pen side of it is very nice as well. Most pens of that size tend to
dry up or the points are so sharp that they cut through the paper. Even
worse, most don’t write unless you press very hard. This one doesn’t have
that issue. It writes very nicely. So much so that I replaced my $20 pen
Compared to the Adjonit Pro or the Targus Stylus, this stylus would best be
used for drawing or doodling. It provides a smooth enough feeling that an
artistic hand can work with it, but not precise enough that it could be
used for writing notes with precision. I’m not saying that it can’t be used
for writing, but its not as precise as the others previously listed. Like
I said, it would be quite a great stylus for one with an artistic hand.
The stylus also feels very sturdy. I can’t get a feel on what material it
is, but part of it does in fact feel metallic. Regardless, it feels well
If you are in the process of determining a stylus to buy, this stylus
should be on your list of choices. Especially if you are an artist, but
still so if you are looking for an all-around good stylus to use. (Posted on 12/13/12)

IMP62B, a stylus pen for Ipad2 & iPhone
Pros: Easy to use.
Handy pen on the opposite end.
Cons : A little shaky if you are a heavy handed person
All in all this is a good stylus pen for iPad. I struggled on an iPhone as the screen just isn't big enough. I used this on various note taking apps on the iPad 3. It works well and my handwriting looks normal. My husband tried it as well and he found it a bit shaky. But he is heavy handed with things. I didn't have that issue over my use.

- Awesome desk stylus/pen Review by Mike
Cons: Seeing the pictures I expected the black area of the pen to be more of a soft touch rubber of some sort, but its just plastic. Also the fact that the tip isn't retractable worries me that it will wear down faster during transport. I'm not sure if it's been made more durable which is why it's firmer, but that is my hope. Since I'm mainly going to leave this on my desk I'm not worried about it. (Posted on 12/4/12)
- Great Stylus Review by Brad
- Great Stylus/Pen and Great Price Review by TheresaL
The tip on the stylus is not rubber like most styli. It is a smooth fabric-like tip but somewhat stiffer than the usual styli fare. Because the tip does not smash down when you use it, it is great for drawing or for writing on note-type apps. It glides smoothly over the glass without skipping or stopping.
The pen is attractive and is just less than 4.5 inches from tip to tip with pen retracted. It’s small enough to fit in a pants pocket and cool enough for any shirt pocket. I myself have found it to be of sufficient length to use comfortably for either of its intended purposes.
The pen is of a good quality and writes smoothly like a real pen, again, not the lame version often found in dual purpose devices. All in all this is a terrific bargain. The styli found in electronic stores go for up to $30.00 each and cannot come close to this one in quality. (Posted on 11/28/12)
- Great Looking, needs a few refinements Review by Josh
- Best I've tried to date Review by drabauer
I used the stylus for typical navigation tasks as well as for writing and drawing in various ipad/smartphone apps, and was able to easily control the flow of the pen as well as the speed of navigation. Some reviews have mentioned the sound produced - it takes getting use to, but is certainly not a handicap. The pen is very comfortable to hold, and helpfully incorporates both a traditional ballpoint tip and a clip.
I find the Limir superior to the three existing styli I've tried, but I still wish that someone would produce a pen with a sharper point specifically for note-taking and drawing. The Limir would be improved if the ballpoint end were a bit narrower so that it handled more like a traditional ballpoint pen. One review suggested a push button, but I like the twist feature, as there is little chance of accidentally ejecting the tip (and the pen does not need one more protuberance). (Posted on 11/26/12)

- So Close to Greatness Review by KC
Now to get into the details:
The shirt clip is nice because the metal attaches well to the Apple SmartCover, and keeps me from losing or having to carry around the stylus. Although it looks nice, I have found the gold body/casing to scratch rather easily, although it doesn't appear to be cheaply made. The tip is fantastic, I am able to take notes seamlessly and it holds up well to a few weeks of use, which at this price is great. The stylus is well weighted and the pen top doesn't make it feel heavy, but as a left-hander the twist pens really never work well for me.
All in all I would say that this stylus is great, but if it was longer both the pen functionality and feel would be better.
Good buy for the price! (Posted on 11/15/12)

- Does not move or drag the screen when signing on the iPad
- Very durable, not like sponge tips, this is made of a higher grade
- Professional look and feel
- Retractable pen on opposite end for writing use as well
Cons: (Overall, it's the best stylus I've personally ever used, but I don't
like to say any product is truly "perfect" and without cons. I've come up
with some minor things which I've noticed, the majority may not feel these
are a real concern.)
- For those of us with bigger hands, a rubberized grip or larger diameter
may be an improvement...although I'm not sure until I actually try it out.
- Since it is made of metal, it does 'feels' colder to the touch in the
winter. However, this is the trade-off for a having such a great
I had a doctor friend of mine comment on how the screen does not
move or shake when they sign documents using this stylus. I guess they had
experiences where the screen would drag a bit when signing using another
stylus. I thought that was a great feature and should certainly be
emphasized. I used this stylus to write, and even play iPad games, and it
worked flawlessly. It's the best stylus I've used. It will be the best
stylus you use as well. No reason to look further if function and quality
is what you are seeking. (Posted on 11/8/12)

- Great if you have fat fingers! Review by Deedee
The draw back is the clip is in the way of using the pen comfortably. He really wants it to be on the other side or not there altogether. He also wishes there was some way to be able to attach it to the phone itself. He was thinking of putting velcro on his case and the stylus. He also suggested to magnetize the stylus so it will attach itself to the metal on the edges of the iPhone. I don't know how that would work for all of the other phones or units out there but it was a suggestion for iPhone users.
All in all, it was a great investment and he is using it everyday. The customers also like having a pen to hold on to when signing for their car washes. (Posted on 10/23/12)
- Excellent product Review by Greg
With my job I have my hands inside machines, covered with toner dust, covered with grease, oil, etc. So no matter how much washing, there is always residue on the fingers that ends up transferring to the phone. The ability to use this stylus will eliminate that, and I will be able to quit investing in screen wipes as often.
I wish it was a little heavier, but it works great. The ink pen is a nice touch and I will use that almost as much as the stylus side. It is very easy to switch between the two. (Posted on 10/20/12)

-When typing with this pencil, it makes an annoying sound when the tip is pressed.
-The other side of the pen has a pen, remarkable pen that is smooth and crisp.
-The grip on the pen is not that attractive. It can slide off if you're hands may be wet.
-You must twist the pen to use the the pen to write. When you are not writing, the pen twists slightly. I would recommend instead of twisting it, maybe a button to use the pen.
-Very comfortable weight and size
-Very solid and durable feel, overall the pen has a very high quality feeling.
-The clip on the pen side is very durable and strong. You can not break it unless you're trying.

lot. The best thing about it is that it eliminates all the fingerprint
smudges on the screen. I like that the pen is on the opposite end so I can
just flip it over to make a note on paper, then go back to my tablet. I
wish the tip of the stylus was a bit smaller, it is not that easy to draw
thin lines with it or select small text. I like the color scheme, however
I would prefer a gunmetal grey and black look. Gold is not really my
style. Overall I am happy with it and would give it a 4 out of 5. (Posted on 10/10/12)
- Microfiber is the real deal! Review by Sizun
I initially stumbled upon the Adonit Jot, but didn't purchase it as it was really expensive, and didn't look so durable. I previously had a cheapo rubber tipped one from ebay which felt cheap, and tore after 1 month's use. It was a pain to draw figures with it too, the rubber was too wobbly!
Amazon had Limir really highly rate, and I was skeptical about the metallic looking tip. But the reviews were all really amazing, so I thought, what the heck, lets give it a try, the price seems right. The tip is AMAZING. Its definitely smooth to touch and won't scratch my IPad screen protector (I have a matte one). Best thing is how precise it is! The weight of it made it feel really expensive and good too (I like heavy pens).
Only downside? The stylus is a little shorter than I would have liked and the pen is on the opposite end. A little awkward, but I don't use it anyways and its good to have. I would definitely recommend this awesome product!

A dainty finger, or at least one with dexterity is needed to navigate the keyboard.
This problem is very much alleviated by using the NewTrent IMP62 stylus.
It is a very well made, and small so it handily fits in a pocket or purse.
It has a fiber end for the touchscreen which works very well. It has a pen on the other end
for jotting down a quick note. This two in one feature comes in very handy.
The only drawback I found was an inability to figure out how the pen could be replaced
when it runs out of ink.
The stylus is very moderately priced, and well worth the investment. Considering what I have seen in stores, even Wal-Mart,
to buy this item on line will save money, and hassle. I recommend (Posted on 9/29/12)

I hope New Trent would re-consider the design of the pen, however. The mesh end is pretty delicate and will get fluffy easily unless stored properly. This would be the most ideal stylus pen for me if the mesh end is retractable to protect it.
But overall, great stylus pen. Bring on those 'Draw Some' games!
