Westcott iPoint Orbit Battery Pencil Sharpener, Black (16244) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I love this pencil sharpener! I have a desktop one for the house but this one I take with me to work and class. It works amazingly well, it doesn't chew up my pencils or expensive colored pencils, just a sharp point every time. Perfect for on the go or to keep at home :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this sharpener! I wasn't sure at first how a battery operated pencil sharpener would work. It took me a while to adjust the pressure for it to sharpen without bogging down. Once I got that down, it works fine.

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.

It was working fine for several minutes, then suddenly it no longer works. The motor spins, the blades spin, but the pencil doesn't sharpen at all. It sounds like it's winding up, but just doesn't chop. Not even after cleaning the reservoir. Help!
