Wacom's 2nd-Gen Bamboo Ink Stylus


The Bamboo Ink (2nd-gen) from Wacom is an ergonomically designed stylus for all your writing and drawing needs. It’s crafted from aluminum, making it sturdy and lightweight, and features a fine tip with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. Thanks to Wacom Active ES and Microsoft Pen Protocol (MPP) compatibility, it can be used with a variety of devices. Better yet, no pairing is required. Users can also take advantage of its two programmable side buttons for quick access to shortcuts, commands, and more.

The Bamboo Ink is powered by a single AAAA battery, and is rated to last for up to 15 months of use, averaging two hours a day and five days a week. Depending on your preference or type of work, you can also pick up a separately sold nib kit that includes soft, medium, and firm alternatives.

Additionally, the Bamboo Ink is optimized for the Windows Ink Workspace and can also be used to take down notes and ideas with Sticky Notes, sketchpad, screen sketch, or other pen-optimized apps like Bamboo Paper. When it’s not needed, clip it to your pocket or tablet cover and take it with you on the go.
