Package Content & Design
There are Adonit Switch Stylus and an addition precision disc as backup in the box. That’s it. There is no built-in battery on Switch so no USB charger is needed here. This makes Switch easier and simpler to use, right? As usual, Switch build quality is top notch thanks to anodized aluminum body. The weight and feel are just right, not too heavy or light. Yes, this applies to both stylus and pen modes. Steady grip is what you get too. The 0.8mm ballpoint tip is retractable therefore the cap is there to protect precision disc when store or carry around. Just turn it around and twist to reveal the ballpoint tip then write on paper. Or use the other end to write on touch screens with the precision disc. And the carrying clip will ease carry around while sitting securely in your pocket. Lastly, there are two colour options to choose from – black and silver.
