The StylusFlex is new Kickstarter project that is currently seeking $10,000 funding. It’s just a boring capacitive stylus you say, who cares? Well, hold on a sec. It’s not “just a boring stylus”. The StylusFlex has a few tricks up its sleeve. Let me show you.


The StylusFlex will be available in pearl white, obsidian black and glacier gray. It has an oval shaped body with a soft rubber-like covering on the outside and it works just like a normal stylus.

I had no problem using the StylusFlex to draw and tap icons on my phone and tablet displays.  The stylus tip is easily removed so that it can be replaced if it ever becomes worn out or damaged.


On the opposite end of the stylus is a plastic plug that has been designed to fit into your mobile device’s 3.5 mm headphone jack.


Look, it’s an antenna for your smartphone! Ok, not really… But the StylusFlex has been designed to fit into the headphone jack so that it’s always with you  when you need it. Of course you won’t want to carry it around with it sticking straight out of the headphone jack. That’s where the “flex” part of the StylusFlex comes in.


Just bend the stylus back out of the way and behind the phone and it will stay there.

It’s interesting to note that the entire body of the stylus can be used to interact with the phone’s display.


You can bend and unbend the StylusFlex into different shapes that will let you use it to hang the phone, as a handle, or use it as a device stand.


The StylusFlex looks and performs like many styluses that you’ve used in the past, but the ability to convert into a hook, a stand and to remain plugged into your phone for easy retrieval makes it more versatile than other styluses. You just have to ask yourself if the $15 early bird pricing and $20 regular pricing justifies that extra feature. If the crowdfunding project is successful, the stylus will be shipping in October of this year.

  2. Buyer Beware –

    I would recommend this product but DON’T get the Obsidian Black color. The black comes off on my fingers. I wrote to the company in December 2016 and they said it was impossible for the color to come off, and wanted me to send them a video showing it. I did (although I’ve never had to PROVE something was wrong with an item to have a company offer to replace it). They thought my video was cute but said they couldn’t tell that the color was coming off on my fingers. But they liked the video so much (??) they would replace the 1 stylus that I was having a problem with (I had bought 3). Oh, and before replacing it, they wanted me to send them ANOTHER video showing me wiping the stylus down with rubbing alcohol. REALLY?

    I was an early backer, bought 3 items, and they wanted me to jump through hoops. Terrible customer service. I told them I was not buying rubbing alcohol to make another video to prove there was a problem. They said they would replace it but I had to send mine back first. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t entirely confident that they’d send the replacement – AND – I wanted them to replace all 3 items. I didn’t want to go through this again with the other 2. No…they would only replace 1. I had to return it via their shipping option, which would cost $3. Not sure why I couldn’t mail it myself. I was more than aggravated at this point and let it go…never followed through. The StylusFlex I had been using went back in the box and I haven’t touched it since. The other 2 may end up being gag gifts next Christmas.
