While we like the Apple Pencil, it is a little too costly for some of us, including Apple Pencils for Black Friday (the first generation costs around $99, and the second generation is even larger at $130). But believe it or not, there are some great clones of the Apple Pencil, which are very similar to the Apple Pencil, but which cost only a fraction thereof. The JAMJAKE Stylus Pen is one of those that you can grab for about $34, which is 28 percent off the normal price of $47.
Although what we consider to be the best stylus for the iPad is the Apple Pencil, let’s face it, not everyone wants to pay about $100 or more for a stylus. A good alternative is the JAMJAKE Stylus Pen, which features palm-rejection technology, so you can use it on your iPad just like you would use a pen on paper. The tip of the JAMJAKE Stylus pen is a nib so that you are precise when you write and draw on your iPad. The nib may get worn down over time, of course, but you get an additional replacement tip, so this stylus will last a long time for you.
The JAMJAKE Stylus Pen is also broadly compatible with a wide range of iPad models. The 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2018-2020), iPad sixth and seventh generation, iPad mini 5, and iPad Air 3 and later work flawlessly with this stylus. Via USB-C, it charges up, going from zero to full in 90 minutes. If used continuously, the stylus pen will last 20 hours and have a standby time of 365 days. Sadly, it doesn’t seem to be magnetic, so it’s not going to stick to your iPad, so you might need an Apple Pencil holder case to keep it safe.
Keep in mind that there is no pressure sensitivity on the JAMJAKE Stylus Pen (like most another third-party stylus), so all lines will be the same thickness and require manual application size adjustment. Still, you’re saving a good chunk of change, so for great value, it’s just a minor inconvenience.
