Westcott iPoint Orbit Battery Pencil Sharpener, Black (16244) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and sturdy. Easy to use! This little pencil sharpener is amazingly sturdy and functional! I love it because you can use it with just one hand. It has three tiny rubber pads on the bottom that create just enough suction to secure them to the surface, but not so much that you can't easily pick it up and move it. It never slips!!!! The sharpener is automatic, so you just put your pencil in the top, gently push, and voila. Perfect point. But do keep in mind that it requires batteries that are not included.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do you have electrical engineers in your family? I bought this pencil sharpener at the beginning of the school year. The first time I tried to use it, in accordance with the enclosed directions, nothing happened; it wouldn't start. I checked that the batteries were installed properly. They were. I watched some videos that demonstrated this pencil sharpener, and retried several times. Over the recent national holiday, I showed this sharpener to the two young electrical engineers in my family. They could not get it to work properly either so they went to work on it. Here are their notes: The inner structure was not in the proper position. It probably happened during the production process. The safety wasn't completing the circuit. We found this out by taking the entire unit apart, and connecting it to a multi-meter. When the unit was reassembled, the inner structure was placed in a higher position on the assembly slots. Then it worked well. The engineers worked on it for about an hour to get these results. I would not recommend this pencil sharpener, unless you know electrical engineers who can improve it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke early on, warranty req paid shipping After about a month of use, the sharpener stopped sharpening pencils. The mechanism was turning inside but the pencils were not sharpening.I removed the center part and cleaned it out to ensure there wasn’t pencil lead clogging anything up but it still doesn’t sharpen.I checked the website and saw there is a warranty but requires paid postage. For the price of the sharpener, it’s not worth the cost to pay to ship it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke after 3 months mild use. Wife bought from store and we don't have receipt. First stopped sharpening, put pencil in and it would just cut off sides of pencil.. Then after many attempts the gears stripped. Took whole sharpener apart and it has plastic gears. These plastic cheap gears failed and stripped. I have a wired pencil sharpener from the 1970s that still works...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it should. It works great and has a small form factor, so it doesn't hog your desk. It's nice that the whole thing can be unplugged (just hold the cord with something else so you don't have to re-tuck it behind your desk), because when you go to dump the shavings, you really have to, since the shavings cup has a hole on the bottom to enable vertical sharpening. It's a slight down-side, but it's not annoying.I'm here though because I broke a pencil tip or something in my sharpener and now the auto-start/stop is working very erratically... I was hoping to find some answers, but I guess I'll just unplug and take it apart soon. Saw all the bad reviews and thought this could use a boost, since apparently people don't leave reviews on brand websites unless they're unhappy (true of many brands it seems).It's worked great for a year, and I'm the guy who likes writing with sharp pencil tips, so it's very handy. If I can't fix it, I'll see if Costco will replace it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Westcott iPoint Orbit Battery Pencil Sharpener The top unscrews and pops off the middle to let you shake out the shavings of your nicely sharpened pencil! The battery compartment is located on the bottom, (not easy to remove) and take 4 double A batteries. Razor sharp blades easily cuts thru creating a nice point. nice viewing area so you know when to empty your shavings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING My 7 year old granddaughter is a budding artist. We keep her several days a week and she draws with a colored pencil set. This sharpener makes a perfectly round, sharp point. It is perfect for this purpose and we have used it a lot. She wants me to buy another sharpener so that she can take it home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sharpener for home use This Westcott iPoint Orbit pencil sharpener is perfect to keep at home. I like the unique shape of the sharpener and the see through plastic. Makes getting a perfect sharp pencil lead easy. The only downside is having to use 4 AA batteries. I would still definitely recommend.

Q & A

How do you open it to put batteries in it

Asked by: How do you open it to put
There should be a compartment at the bottom of the device that has a small lever that can be pulled back to remove the door, and insert the batteries.

I purchased the iPoint orbit pencil sharpener from Amazon a while ago and the sharpener doesnt seem to sharpen my pencils anymore. I think my son put the eraser end into the sharpener and ruined the blade. Can I buy just the blade replacement?

I'm not sure which way the batteries are suppose to go in. Does the +/- on the top mean that it goes up or down? I've put the batteries in several different ways but it won't work.

Asked by: debWI
The flat side is negative (-) and the top of the battery with the blunted tip is positive (+). Please see attached photo for instructions.
