Just Mobile AluPen Pro review

£35 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Just Mobile

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The Just Mobile AluPen Pro has a quality feel and good performance both as pen and stylus.

The AluPen Pro from the award-winning Just Mobile team brings together two solutions in one pen. It’s a classy Biro and, with a flip, an iPad stylus. Made from sleek and tactile aluminium and complete with Pelikan ballpoint refill, spare rubber nib, leather case and Apple-like stickers, it looks the part. See also How to make a stylus.

The AluPen Pro performs well: the ballpoint pen is comfortable to use, tapered to sit well in your grip. At the other end, the soft rubber stylus makes marking on an iPad – or any capacitive touchscreen device – a pleasurable experience. Visit all tablet PC accessories.

The rubber tip does feel a little on the soft side, but we were still able to make fairly precise marks on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Go to Best Draw Something Stylus.

The AluPen Pro is also nicely weighted – the rubber tip requires little pressure, which makes writing and drawing with the stylus end easier. And as with the AluPen above, that attractive aluminium gets chilly in cold environments, so it’s best to wrap the stylus in its leather case when not in use. See Draw Something review.

Buying Advice

The AluPen Pro from Just Mobile ticks a lot of boxes. With a look and feel that oozes quality, it also delivers as a traditional pen. That said, it’s a combination that won’t appeal to all, and at a price that’s likely to put off the casual buyer.
