Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea but won't sharpen I loved this idea behind this sharpener; being able to charge things from it. I saw it as a great benefit in the classroom. I was highly disappointed to find that it doesn't sharpen pencils well. When I try to sharpen a pencil, the sharpener freezes and stops sharpening right away. It acts like I have pushed the pencil in to hard, but any less pressure and it won't come on at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Desk Accessory! The Westcott USB Charging Pencil Sharpener is a wonderful desk accessory for both classroom and work environments. It provides a convenient place to quickly charge multiple devices (tablets, phones, handheld-gaming devices) in a small space. The pencil sharpener is handy as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pencil Sharpener Ever! I use colored pencils on projects a several times a week and own 4 pencils sharpeners. A couple of these are fancy ones with multiple hole sizes. None of them can sharpen like this one. Having USB charging ports conveniently on the sharpener is just a plus for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Useull Even If You Like Dull Pencils At first I thought the charging station was just a nice extra. Then I realized it is designed with a fast charging port for my iPad and 2 regular charging ports for phones this is a super thoughtful design element.

how to emptied?

Asked by: electric pencil sharpener
To empty, twist the top cap of your sharpener in a counter-clockwise motion. The shavings can then be dumped and the cap twisted back on once empty.
