I got this pencil sharpener to use in my classroom with high school students. So far I've only used it with the batteries option, but it's very quick and leaves a really nice finish on the pencils. In the pictures I attached I have the before and after which was only after sticking the pencils in once. With my other electric sharpeners I would need multiple passes to get them sharp. The sharpener is fairly quiet so it's not disturbing to the class and it stops when it's done so it doesn't over sharpen. It has 3 different settings for sharpness; so far I've just used the sharpest one, but that is perfect for my classroom.
I'm so happy with this automatic sharpener, saves time and effort.. in just like 5 seconds, you'll surely get a sharpened pencil. My son has lots of pencils and this helps us in sharpening all of his pens, what i like most is that when you use a manual sharpener the led will easily fell off and this automatic sharpener, it doesnt. Plus you can use it with just a battery or you can also plug it in! Amazinggg!
We do alot of coloring here to take away the stress, it seems to relax the kids and me. Not to think about anything else. With that, we are always needing to sharpen the colored pencils. With kids the shavings get everywhere. I decided to get an electric pencil sharpener. I got this one for the 2 sizes of pencils it can sharpen, the way it can hold more shavings and the compacts size. Also I like the fact it is battery operated.(batteries not included) No cords to trip over and we can take with us when we go camping or just the weekly drive and the kids can still color or draw quietly in the back seat. It does have the option for plug in operation with a USB. But I will not be using this. Included in the box is the sharpener, 3 blades, USB cord and instructions.
I got this pencil sharpener for my 8 year old and 5 year old to use. With two young kids, we use a lot of pencils (regular and color ones). I'm usually sharpening pencils by hand on a weekly basis. (And my kids have issues using those little ones.) With this one, I use the USB outlet since there's a USB outlet on my child's desk lamp. This way, it sits right on his desk. There are two holes (6-8 mm and 9-12 mm) for sharpening, but we have yet to use the large one.
It does require a little effort to push down on the pencil to get it sharpened to the point you wish. I like the large storage capacity for pencil shavings so we don't have to empty it right away. It also came with extra cutters too, which is a nice touch. The battery option is a great idea too should we wish to take this with us somewhere. I would be curious to try it with a 6V 1.5A adaptor to get more power as was suggested in the description. (Adaptor not included.)
Overall, we are happy to have this electric sharpener so readily available in our home for the kids to use so they can be more independent with sharpening their pencils.
I did receive this item at a discount for my review. However, this is my honest opinion of the product.
I have a 5 year old that got his own desk for his birthday. He has SO many pencils, my 2 year old also loves drawing and "writing" so many are broken. My hand kept cramping from using the tiny sharpener, and most of the color pencils are slightly thinner so hard to get in correctly. This sharpener has saved my hands and my 5 year old can do it himself, away from little brother.
Got this for my son. He's 7 and has daily homework. We have plenty of pencils but our sharpener is an old school hand crank one that really isn't sharp enough to do a good job on pencils. This one is fantastic. Super easy to use, has a wall plug so we aren't always searching for batteries, easy to empty, and compact (doesn't take up a lot of room on his desk). Better than what I could find at the store here.
We needed a pencil sharpener badly. I was done using the old school manual one. I have ordered from Smartpro before and love their products. They didn’t let down again! This unit is petite and it sharpens fast and nicely. No complaints. Would recommend.
My kids love this pencil sharpener. They think it’s cool to see inside. I like that I can see when it’s getting full. I haven’t had any problems using it. It’s very lightweight which is great if that’s what you are looking for. I wish it was a little heavier.
