Well, you need to write in ink at some point. You also need a stylus at some point too and there is little doubt that we always in need for battery juice. So then why not grab a Power Pen? As the product name implies, it is a pen, but what it didn’t say is, it is also a stylus and packed inside its unassuming writing instrument form is a 700 mAh battery. At a swivel of the tip, you can quickly switch between a stylus and a ballpoint pen, and twisting the mid-section off, you will find a tip, a choice of Lightning and microUSB, that would let the 700 mAh juice flow to your device of choice. And on the other end, is a USB connector for recharging the internal battery, either through any powered USB port or any AC wall outlet. Granted that 700 mAh is barely enough for most of today’s smartphones, it should provide you that much needed jolt of power when you needed most.
Most importantly, you have three functional accessories in one neat package that slips right into your pocket, purse or wherever you fancy. The point is, it is convenience, ready at hand without the associated bulk. With so many practical functions packed into the Power Pen, the old-adage of “the pen is mighty then the sword” might be true after all. Having that said, we really don’t see what’s not to love. And did we mention that it is off brushed aluminum construction? So yea. It is beautiful too. Available in black or gold, the Power Pen Pen-Stylus Hybrid Portable Battery is being peddled by UK-based gadgets and novelties store Firebox for just 24.99 quids, or about US$39.
