Lately, it seems that I have so much to do when I am at work, that I use several devices to accomplish my tasks. By the time I set up to get started, there are wires from power cords and devices running everywhere. What makes things easier for me, is having certain “tools’ at the ready and at my fingertips. I constantly use my Apple Pencil with my iPad Pro 12.9, and I was very happy when I got the chance to review this product.
What is it?
The Oittm Apple Pencil Stand is a weighted, nicely designed, wooden and metal charging stand for the Apple pencil.
What’s in the box
1 x Oittm Apple Pencil Stand
1 x Instruction Booklet
1 x Foreign language Leaflet
Design and features
The Oittm Apple Pencil Stand is an all-in-one stand and charger for the Apple Pencil. It is very sturdy and has a wooden base and what seems to be an aluminum top. On the top, there is the female lightning jack for charging the pencil and a holder for the pencil cap.
Underneath, there is a wooden base, and a rubber pad to prevent slipping.
On the front of the stand, there is a small LED on the lower half that indicates the charging/power status.
On the back of the stand, there is a lightning port for the lighting power adapter.
The picture below shows the power adapter attached, the pencil plugged in, and the pencil cap sitting in the pencil cap holder. The pencil cap can be placed in the pencil cap holder with either the open side up or the opposite.
When the charging stand is plugged in, and the pencil is not being charged, the LED on the front lights green. Once the pencil is plugged in to be charged, the LED lights orange and stays that color even after the pencil is fully charged,
What I like
I like the build quality and the weight of the stand. I also like that it has a rubber pad on the bottom that keeps it from sliding on my desk. It does the job.
What can be improved
The only improvement that I would like to see is maybe a USB output jack so that the one adapter can be used to charge both the pencil and maybe the phone at the same time.
The Oittm Apple Pencil Stand is well built and a nice addition to the decor of my desk. It works exactly as it should and adds a nice level of convenience to my workflow. While some may think it is a bit pricey for what it is, in my opinion, the craftsmanship and materials used make it worthy of its price. I definitely recommend it.
