Adonit, understood for its range of styluses, today announced the Jot Dash, it’s newest stylus that aims to closely duplicate a basic pen. The Jot Dash is a thin-tipped active stylus that has a plastic 1.9 mm pointer that offers more precision than a standard rubber-tipped stylus.
Priced at $$ 49.99, the Jot Dash bridges the space between Adonit’s inexpensive Jot Pro and Jot Mini and the costlier Bluetooth-connected Jot Touch and Jot Script. Like the Jot Touch and the Jot Script, it has a little battery-powered idea, but it does not have the Bluetooth connectivity that makes it possible for functions like palm rejection and pressure sensitivity.
Like any active tip stylus, the Jot Dash works with all capacitive touch screen devices, consisting of all of Apple’s iPhones and iPads. Notably, it works with the iPad Air 2, that includes a various screen innovation than other older iPads.
Adonit’s goal with the Jot Dash was to imitate a standard ink pen, so the Dash is just 8.5 mm in diameter (about the density of a BIC pen) with a light-weight, rechargeable battery and a clip. According to Adonit, the Jot Dash is its most user-friendly stylus to this day, because it “looks like a pen, feels like a pen, and acts like a pen.”
A quick click on the back of the Jot Dash turns it on, and as soon as activated, it’s usable within any drawing or note taking app. The battery lasts for 14 hours, so depending on use it will just need charging every couple of weeks, and charging is finished with a magnetic USB dongle.
The Jot Dash is offered in black or silver from Adonit’s website and it is priced at $$ 49.99.
