  • Adonit for this Adonit Pro 3 Stylus

Package Content & Design
There is almost no change on the packaging compare to previous generation. There are Adonit Dash 3 and USB charger in the package. And all the product information is located at the packaging as well. As usual, the build quality is top notch thanks to brushed aluminum body. Sleek and ergonomic design makes it nice to hold and write/draw. Weight is well balanced too. There is power button on top of the stylus. Carrying clip for you to secure it in the pocket. And power indicator that show green colour when power on and red when power off. Finally, there are 3 colour options to choose from this round – black, silver and bronze.

Performance Result
Fast and easy to use. Adonit Dash 3 works instantly once powered on. It share lot of similarity compare to Dash 2. It still have greatly reduce tapping sound on glass. Battery performance is the same – up to 14 hours continuously. It will last for several days on casual usage thanks to its auto sleep power saving feature. And took around 45 minutes to fully charge.

Dash 3 is still using PixelPoint Tip but the tip is matte this round compare to glossy material on Dash 2. Therefore, Dash 3 provides slightly more friction. This give you better control than previous generation. Accuracy wise is the same – working fine as it should be. What I draw is what I get. Furthermore, it handles offset very well. No problem to draw or point to the location that I want precisely. Its ergonomic design does help to improve overall writing experience too.


  • Work like a normal ballpoint pen
  • 1.9mm fine point matte tip
  • Long hour of usage
  • Fast charging
  • Excellent build quality
