These will add to our party!||December 3, 2015||These glow sticks are going to make out New Year’s Eve party even more fun! We always have a bunch of our family over so this bulk box of 30 individually wrapped glow stick will be just the right amount for what we need. I have already played with one of them and I am impressed with their quality. They are just like the ones I have purchased at the local stores.|
Each package is labelled with a small sticker dot on the front near the top to indicate what color is inside. I love that because everyone will get the color they want. I received an equal amount of each color (5 colors, 6 each). The one I played with seem to last all night. It was still glowing when I went to be so I popped it into the freezer. The next night I took it out of the freezer and it lasted another hour and a half before it died.
These Etekcity 6" Glow Sticks are perfect for any party! I like them and I can’t wait to break the out for NYE! I received this for an unbiased and honest review.

I received this item at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.
These sticks are very bright and durable. They are the same quality you can expect at an outdoor concert, but for a fraction of the price. I would highly recommend this product to anyone going to a party/concert/rave where this can be useful.

Also use shoe string and tie 2 together like nun-chucks for hours of fun. Pop em in the microwave for about 10 seconds to make them ultra bright.

I would us caution letting kids start the glow or playing much with the sticks. Normally it seem the outer plastic is stronger but as other have said the diameter is a little greater with this stick. It could be that the glass inside has more room because of that and can get a better angle to slice out.||3||0||0||1456284287||median|

Then- my kids found them!...and I'm rather glad that they did, otherwise I might not have seen them opened and working as soon as I did!|
These glow sticks really are amazing! They're nothing like, or even remotely close, to the ones I've bought from the local dollar store. Plus- they're even a much better value considering how many are in this pack at such a reasonable price!
Back to the product itself: these glow sticks are very high quality compared to any others I've seen. They are constructed of a very strong material that is highly unlikely to leak under any normal circumstance. Plus- they really do last for HOURS! My boys opened them, played with them, fell asleep- and they were still glowing come morning! I found that to be very remarkable. Which- at the same time, gives me added security knowing they'll last in the event of an emergency situation requiring light.
That, and they do have a bright glow. I love how they are an array of colors (5 different ones), which is useful for identifying whose glow stick is whose. Or even, which kid is which: something I expect to find useful come Halloween 🙂
Overall- this is a great pack of glow sticks that are bright, have a great color assortment, are long-lasting, and have an excellent shelf life. That said: they truly serve multiple purposes and are, indeed, an incredible value. By all means, I highly recommend them!

Each of these glow bars are individually wrapped and they come with a red string to attach to them. There easy to use just have to bend them till you hear a crack then shake them throughly. The foil packaging is very easy to open and they are non toxic (don't puncture the plastic casing, drink or eat the liquid or burn the glow sticks). These glow bars glow bright and you can even see them glowing in a lighted room. They work best in dark or with very minimal light. The only downside was that none of the packs were marked with what colour was inside.
These sticks are durable and they will glow brightly for as long as you would need them to. The colours are bright and vibrant and thy look good.

We have looked at many glow sticks for the party and finally decided on these.|
They arrived quickly and were well packaged. The box contains 25 glow sticks with 5 different color options. The colors are blue, green,pink, red, and yellow. Each package has a little color dot on it to let you know which color was included inside.
The glow stick package measures 9.5 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. Upon opening the package you will find one glow stick and one red cord. The cord is so that you can attach the glow stick to it to make it into a necklace. The glow stick measures just under 6 inches long and 3/4 inches wide. Each glow stick offers a hook handle so that you can hook it on things. It also offers a hole to thread the cord through if you choose to wear it as a necklace.
To make the stick glow simply bend it until you hear a slight pop sound and then shake it. It will automatically begin glowing. The colors are bright and easily seen. I love the variety of colors provided an that they are great for boys and girls above 5 years.
These are great for many different occasions. You can give them out at parties, decorate with them, wear them while trick or treating, give them out on Halloween instead of candy, and so much more! We plan to use these at my daughter's Halloween party and know they will be a huge hit. The kiddos are going to love the bright bold colors. Each stick should last about 8 hours, making them tons of fun! I found that it still glowed well after the 8 hour mark, it just wasn't as bright as it was in the beginning.
Overall, we have really enjoyed these glow sticks and will purchase them again! highly recommended!

We used glow-sticks at my grandson's 5th birthday party last week. They are a 'recommended' item at the party location and instead of buying them overpriced there, we purchased ours from party city and these arrived shortly afterwards, I didn't think they would be any different in functionality but these sticks were still putting off light over 24 hours later, not bright but they definitely surpassed the glowing power of the Party City light sticks. Thanks for the sample Etekcity

They can add a lot of fun for all the children. They come in individual packaging for each and every glow stick. There are 25 such glow sticks in each box. But I guess I had around 30 of them. They are 6” in size each.|
I like how each of them are packed separately and the reason being each of the packages also contain a red color string in it. You can use this string to make a necklace out of the glow stick or say join couple of them together and other such fun things.
They indeed glow for a good amount of time ranging from 6-8 Hours. But do remember that the glow will fade with time. These sticks are bigger in terms of width than the other glow sticks that I have owned.They also seem to have having some sort of glow liquid inside them. Due to these having more width, it takes time to “break” them. Here “break” means, we have to hold the 2 ends of the stick and bend it so you hear some cracking sound. This you can do multiple times across the entire length of the stick. This is how the glow will start. You will also see the liquid moving up and down as you move the stick.
Overall these can really bring some fun to parties and kids will surely love having these made as necklaces. Just make sure you apply more force to break / snap it as it can be sometimes difficult for kids to do it as it is little more in width.

These glow sticks are rated for 8 hours but I gave some to my kids and the next night, they were still glowing! They’re a lot of fun to play with, especially since they come with the string to make them into necklaces and/or spinners! I was impressed with how bright they glowed and my gosh, the next day?! They’re built very well, are non-toxic and come in many colors. They’re packaged separately, each package having a colored dot letting you know what color is inside, making it easy to let the kids choose the one they want.|
I actually had the kids playing with these in the living room and started to worry about them spinning them with the TV nearby. I was able to tell them they could spin them as long as they kept the string around their neck which kept the glow sticks from flying out of their hands. The kids had hours of fun with these and when it was time for bed, they hung the glow sticks on doorknobs, lighting the way to the bedroom.

These work like most glow sticks I have used. You open the package, hold on to both ends with both hands, and try to break the stick until you hear a crack. Shake vigorously for a few seconds, and you should be glowing away.
I gave these four stars because I found that it takes a little more to crack these than what I prefer, and also because some come with a string and some don't seem to. It would be nice if these things were consistent.
Otherwise a great tool to add to your box of tools, never know when you need to glow.

The glow sticks come in a box of 25. Each glow stick is individually wrapped. Each pack has a string and a glow stick. The glow sticks are so fun to play with.|
Using the glow stick is very easy and simple. Just break the glow stick and shake it. It will start glowing.
These glow sticks are so fun and colorful.
I have used other glow sticks in the past. They were not long lasting. The glow sticks from Etekcity are really long lasting. I used few glow sticks at night. My son was so happy and excited. He played with them till his bed time. Next morning the sticks are still glowing. After 10 hours the glow was still there. I was surprised to see it. My son ran and picked the glow sticks to play.
The glow sticks are perfect for birthday, holiday, wedding, Halloween etc.
Adults and kids both enjoy playing with these sticks. You can use these sticks to hang using the string included in the pack. you can make different shapes to decorate.
You can definitely have a blast using these long lasting glow sticks. They come in bulk which is very cheap.
I would recommend these glow sticks.

Unlike cheaper ones I've seen of these, I did not have any issues with these leaking or any other problems with them.

They are standard glow sticks and work well. The packages don’t indicate which color you will get, so that can either be a fun surprise or annoying if you have a child that insists on a particular color. I was very impressed with the length of time that the sticks kept a reasonable amount of glow. 24 hours after a stick is activated, it still has some glow to it. Not enough to light anything, but it does have a faint white glow where it can be found in the dark.|

They are pretty much the perfect non-candy gift as they are bright, fun, and good for walking around at night. Kids can carry them or wear them with the included cord. They are simple to use (instructions are on the packet) and safe to give to kids of all ages because they are non-toxic. The non-toxic nature was one of the big reasons I chose them since I don't want to get in trouble with any child's parents for giving them something that might poison them! I did test one stick to see how well they lasted and they do indeed last for hours. If you tend to give away full-size candy bars for Halloween, these are a great alternative in a similar price range.|

So, it brings back a few memories...I LOVE how bright and vivid this stick glows! You get twenty-five that you can easily store for those times when you want to go out and have some fun. It just seems to "kick up" the excitement a notch.|
Each stick is thick, 6 inches long, and is non-toxic. Just bend a stick until you hear a "snap" sound, then shake it to get the stick glowing bright. It comes with a string to thread through the hole on top. There is also a hook that you can use to hang it on things. I made a necklace out of some skinny glow sticks that I already had.
All the packages are identical so it's a mystery which color you'll open. The five possible colors: red (photographed here--it looks hot pink), blue, green, yellow and orange.

Quick Start guide.
I actually never knew this kind of gadget existed. I always thought when your car had a problem off to the dealership or garage to have it diagnosed.
This is a Wifi scan tool that supports OBD-II protocols. You use it to read and diagnose trouble codes, clear trouble codes and detect fuel pressure, etc. To know the Diagnostic Trouble Code number before taking the vehicle in for repair is good knowledge to have. Once the vehicle is repaired, the Diagnostic Trouble Code or Codes can be erased and the Check Engine light turned off using this scan tool. Cars made past 1996 will have a port - it is usually under the steering wheel area this is where you plug in the OBD2 scanner device to collect information about your vehicle such as if your check engine light is on and then you can get the fault code to find out what exactly is happening. The app to connect this to can be downloaded from the CD that's included. It's compatible with both Apple and Android. The app is available in the app store as Torque, if you do not have a computer.
I was unable to check this out myself but we did use on my sisters car because your check engine light went on and we could not figure out what was wrong with her car after diagnosing it which it was nothing bad we were able to turn off using this tool.
I was given the opportunity to review this product for free, which I then gave my honest/unbiased review. All opinions are 100% my own.

Also went and used it on a GMC F1500, a Ford F-150, and a Mazda b2300 pickup truck. For the most part the device performed well. Sometimes if you connect and disconnect multiple times over a scan, then it will require a restart of the adapter until Torque (the app of choice for ELM327 units like this) can communicate with it again. Sometimes the connection was slow as well, but that could have been a lot of factors during actual driving. I also LOVE the fact that it has an on/off button right on the front there.|
So why 3 stars? Well...
If you're pairing this wifi unit with a 4G Smartphone, you have to choose between communicating to the unit OR connecting to the internet, not both at the same time. The direct connection between the Smartphone and the Wifi takes up the full Wifi connection, disallowing you from connecting to the internet, while the Wifi connection itself has overlapping frequencies with the 4G radio on your phone, so your phone doesn't allow you to connect your wifi and 4GB at the same time. At the very least this was the case on my Galaxy Note 2, though I've heard this is the case with many 4GB phones.
This means that: I'd have to disconnect from the internet, connect to the device, run the scan for fault codes, then disconnect from the device, reconnect to the internet, email myself a report on the fault codes, look up the meaning of the fault codes, then disconnect from the internet, reconnect to the device, and wipe the codes. And remember what I said about repeated connect/disconnects would require you to restart the unit?
With all that said, apart from that glaring flaw for use with my smartphone, the device worked well enough, and even if the need to restart it or occasional slow read was due to a bad unit, I've dealt with Etekcity before and I know they would have replaced it with very little difficulty and would have taken care of me.
I'll be getting a bluetooth code reader now so I can scan and have internet access at the same time, though Etekcity doesn't make one at this time.

I have a bluetooth scanneralso, and will be comparing this one to that.|
This item came packaged well, with a CD with software and instructions. I was first struck by how small it is. I've included pictures comparing it to my bluetooth version so you can see how much slimmer it is lengthwise. This might not seem like a big deal, but it is nice not to have something sticking out from beneath your dash. I have an Acura TL, and the bluetooth one I have sticks out from the dash enough that you could see it or bang your knee on it. This one does not do that at all.
In my car, I keep an android tablet mounted that I use for media, gps, and diagnostics. I plugged this in, and it connected effortlessly and worked right off the bat with Torque (Android App). Communication was quick enough that I could use it for RPM and speed readings. Everything worked perfectly.
The big selling feature of WiFi is that it can be used with Apple products also. I pulled out my iPhone, connected it, and was able to use the App suggested without issue. It is nice to have the ability to pull this stuff up on my iPad or iPhone also. Again, worked perfectly.
Another big feature, that might not seem so big if you haven't used one of these before, is the on/off power button. What you may not know is power to your OBD port does not shut off when the car does. If you have an OBD adapter plugged in, and leave it there for more than a few days on without driving, you will have a dead battery. With my other bluetooth version, I have to plug/unplug it every time I drive, which lead to me just not using it much (I also worried about wearing out the port). With this one, you you just touch the power button. Works perfectly, and it is so much better than disconnecting it every time. You can leave it permanently installed, which is huge.
Also, the light indicators are bright. I tried to capture some pictures of this, tough because of where the port is, but I think you can get the idea. This helps quite a bit, because many OBD ports are on the bottom of the dash, and you can't see them without getting under and looking up. Since these are bright, you can tell what it is doing without getting out of the driver's seat. Also, you can see when you've left it on.
In summary, everything worked perfectly, and I can't think of anything I'd improve on this. It worked with iPhone and Android perfectly, and is low profile, with a smartly added power button that really helps. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review, but would definitely recommend and purchase again.

The plug connects directly to the Wifi and has a very strong signal. I was able to access the app using the wifi from my office while my car was in the garage (40ft). The tool does work with other apps- I used OBD Car Doctor for iOS. This app was able to tell me that I had a problem with my O2 sensor...after some tests I even found that my battery is nearing the end of its life- which assuredly saved me a lot of headache from a surprise dead battery. I am very happy with this product and it will have a permanent spot in my glove box for future use!|

I have use it twice, but i want first to confirm before getting to the mainteneance, to see how accurate it is. I am very surprised with this. I am just now waiting for my car and when the mechanic told me what they have to fix after checking it. I was with my app confirming everything. Really accurate, i really recommend this device. I am going to buy another one for my dad to because he has a older car that he is always checking in the mechanic. I cannot believe it is so affordable. Maybe later they increase the price. I will update my review later with pictures 🙂|
Is so easy to use, it was my first one and i understand everything fast, i just had to download the app connect to my car and to the wifi of my phone and voilaa!

|3606161||RGS45MH9D50O1||B012MZGKOU||Tobashadow||ANIIC6DXS8BVI||A very easy to use OBD2 adapter||August 23, 2015||First off let me say that I own a couple of the bluetooth adapters and a couple of the stand alone code scanners already so I am well versed in the usage of said products. The included CD came with the free version of the Torque application which is nice of them even though I own the Pro version which is well worth the minimal cost. In this day in age I would really have liked a online link to the files on the CD to be included since the availability of devices with CD drives is going down with each year. I tested this with three different vehicles and I found with each that it connected up perfectly and easily with nothing more then selecting that it is a wifi device in the Torque settings and connecting to the device under the wifi settings. The speed of the connection was as good or better than the bluetooth adapters I own with only one noted exception is that you loose your net connection when using this adapter unlike the bluetooth style ones so If you are looking up codes you have to disconnect to see what they mean. So for abilities i'd have to go with the bluetooth style but for ease of use on a new device the wifi adapters like this one are hands down easier to connect to since there is no pairing needed its just click and go which by far makes it more compatible and easier to use then the comparable bluetooth adapters.|
When I first got this adapter the one I received was faulty and would not stay connected, but with a simple email to the Etekcity customer service I received a quick and helpful response trying to diagnose the problem and in the end it had to be replaced which they did promptly and quickly shipped it out. The second unit i received worked flawlessly.

Even when he's not at work, he ALWAYS has someone's vehicle to check. This is a very handy tool that allows him to transform his phone into a full set of gauges that spit out real-time information including acceleration, revs, speed, boost, and a host of other parameters. The app was easy to install and simple to use. He can run diagnostics at home and have the codes right there on hand. Simply find the port on your car, plug it in and press the power button, it is then ready for phone connection. Syncing is easy and fast. Once connected, simply open an ODB2 app and connect to the device. My husband has compared it to the device they use at work and it is very accurate. It a great device to have on hand and can save money as well. Highly recommend!! I received this tool scanner at a free or discounted price in return for my unbiased review.||5||3||3||1450331251||good|
|3606162||R2XT7AZ2BM3OGU||B012MZGKOU||DC Reviews||A1E74OKDCHYTNA||great reader, easy to connect.||August 17, 2015||Great scanner, much more detailed than a handheld one and pairs much better with a bluetooth one that I have.|
1. The device is quite small so you can keep this in the glove compartment of the car easily doesn't come with a case.
2. I did have some trouble initially with this device to connect because I didn't realize that it made its own Wi-Fi network, but once I realized that it made its own Wi-Fi network "WIFI_ODBII" it was basically a very easy connection, it is not a secured WiFi network, you just basically connect to it via your phone or laptop and use the recommended apps.
3. I used this with my iPhone and the pairing, since my phone is on the same network as this device, the app that it uses from the App Store basically detects the device and I am able to connect to it.
4. The instructions that come with the device basically tell you what you need to install in order to use the device, basically you install the recommended apps, turn on the device and then connect to its network and boom it is detected.
5. The device provides more information than a standalone handheld that I bought a few years ago, although it is not all useful information, most of it is interesting to know.
6. The device plugs in fine and works with both of my cars, I didn't have any problems, plugged it into my car that has an ABS problem, and it did show up.
7. Wish the device had a wired connection as it would have been nice to be able to plug it in without having to connect sometimes.
In the end, this is one of the better OBDII scanners that I have used.
i did get this for review, but I can assure you I tested the product and my review is honest and unbiased.

What I liked:
It was very easy to install in the car. The IOS version of the software was extremely intuitive and easy to use. I had an O2 sensor that was bad. I knew about this prior to using this device. This device picked up on it within seconds. The Wifi is great. I thought that it meant that you had to connect it to an existing Wifi. This is not the case. You can connect it to an iPod and use the Wifi anywhere. Very handy to calculate fuel mileage on long trips.
What I didn't like:
The software that came with this product wasn't the best. I was not able to get the PC version of the software to work at all. The Android version did not connect via bluetooth properly.
I received this product at no cost in exchange for my testing purposes and honest and unbiased review. All opinions are my own.

It's small enough (see pictures) to leave plugged in and not be in the way. I downloaded the app suggested in the user's manual on my iPhone, and haven't had any issues with connectivity or app performance. I didn't bother downloading the software onto my computer, so cannot comment on that. I wanted the scanner primarily to read check engine light codes on my cars, but the engine performance monitoring is pretty sweet too. The output can be reported in either metric or English units.|
I would highly recommend this OBD2 scanner to anyone looking to run engine diagnostics. If you're looking for a specific parameter, check the complete list of parameters monitored below.
DTC Status, Fuel System Status, Engine Load, Engine Coolant Temp, Short term fuel % trim - bank 1, Long term fuel % trim - bank 1, Engine RPM, Speed, Timing Advance, Intake air temp, MAF air flow rate, Throttle position, Oxygen sensors 1 present, 0212 (bank 1), 0212 (bank 2), OBD standard, 02S1 (Bank 1), 02S1 (Bank 2), Fuel Economy, Fuel Economy (inverse), Fuel Economy Average, Fuel Economy Average (inverse)

Every vehicle I have owned I experienced the same issue at one point. Where a warning light would appear, I would make an appointment and take it to the dealer. Once I arrive the warning light goes off and they said there is nothing I can do unless the warning light is on at the time. Now this is where this baby comes in handy. Plug this into the outlet that is typically where all the fuses are, drivers side, under the steering wheel behind the little door. I have an android OS phone (Galaxy Note 4) I joined the Wifi called WiFi_OBDII. I downloaded the Torque software from the play store. there is a lite version and a full version for $4.99.|
Once you are connected, software installed and Torque running you can do a bunch of stuff. You can leave it plugged in or ug it in when you want to run a scan. It can capture metrics when you are driving.acceleration such as the throttle, how fast you are going, boost, coolant level. there is a graphing feature that can capture stuff suck as RPMs, Absolute Throttle, Acceleration, Air Fuel Ratio.I did receive this scanner for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. In my opinion this is a high quality diagnostic tool, it works extremely well, easy to use.

We replaced an older automatic pencil sharpener with this one and I like it much more. The shavings tray is so much easier to empty. You don't have to worry about pencil shavings flying all over the place because it slides in and out very easily. My second favorite feature on this particular sharpener is the auto stop! It lets me know exactly when my pencil is sharp and it's never lied! I haven't needed to resharpen a pencil after the auto stop kicked in. You also don't need to hold the pencil while its sharpening, it must have something inside that holds it in place because you can just stick in it and let it go and the auto stop pops it out (just a little, don't worry you won't have pencils flying at you!) when it's sharp.
This is noisy, like any other electric sharpener, but I didn't find the noise to be any louder or quieter than any electric sharpener I've used previously. It's also noisier sharing a brand new pencil than one that's already started.

I'm pretty sure there's something very nerdy about feeling very soothed by sharpening pencils. Whatever. It's satisfying to work with a freshly sharpened pencil and it can either be fun or frustrating to get them perfectly sharpened. This sharpener helps to achieve the former.
1. You insert your pencil.
2. It sharpens the pencil.
3. It stops sharpening the pencil when it's exactly the right, even sharpness all over.
That's it. That's the whole thing.
No shavings all over the place (there is a tray), no cramps if you need to do a whole box of new pencils (some of us are weaklings, shh), no sliding all over the place (this thing has weight), and no disappointment when you have lead on one side of your point and just woody splinter crap on the other.
If you get pencil-happy and insert a pencil that's very wee, you can even reverse course and this thing will eject it.
I'm attaching some photos of pencils fresh out of this machine for any other nerds who like that sort of thing.
I got this sharpener for free as a review sample.

I mean there actually is a sharpener that really sharpens a pencil by itself(and you don't' have to hold it either). As for the size, it looks like a normal silver looking yet well built automatic pencil sharpener you'd see at a public school along with being powered by an AC Cord also. There is hardly any noise when it's sharpening a pencil except for when it's grinding or pulling the pencil in and out. The time it takes to sharpen also isn't that long either unless the pencil hasn't even been used yet. Almost every pencil I used in this sharpener all turned out fully sharpened and I haven't had any problems of the sharpener pulling in the pencil in. Well I did with this one pencil that looked a character type one. It seemed that it just would start unless I slightly push it in myself and after that it normally pulled out fully sharpened. I don't know why that happened but I do believe it had something to do with the thickness the paper on the pencil and the inside grinder part wasn't big enough to fully pull it in, but that's just my opinion though. Now for any other kinds of pencils, I didn't try as I don't have them. The main ones I have in my household are pencils that are used for writing which my son uses for school(which also where the character wrapped pencils came in play at).|
Overall, to me, I think this is a pretty good sharpener for having for your kids when they need a sharpened pencil to do their homework assignment or even having in your own office but do know that it will work way better for No.2 Pencils than the other ones though.

We had an "old school" one (probably the same one every one of us had in grade school on the teachers' desks!) which finally kicked the bucket. So when Etekcity offered me an opportunity to test this model for free, I was thrilled. This model isn't nearly as bulky or heavy as my old one, but it IS just as heavy DUTY. This works reliably to sharpen my pencils in our house.|
-Well made and sturdy
-Easy to operate-auto start/stop
-Easy to clean - smooth surface that's easy to dust/wipe down
-powered by included AC power adapter in the package

Or how about when you're in the middle of using a pencil and all the sudden the lead breaks. You look around only to discover there is no pencil sharpener in sight. Perhaps you have one of those small, plastic pencil sharpeners that barely sharpen. The Etekcity Electric pencil sharpener is always ready to use. It will quickly sharpen all your pencils in a matter of seconds. I love this pencil sharpener. It's electric, so yes, you do have to plug it in, but it's well worth it. Your pencils come out sharp and smooth the first time and no worry about the pencils getting jammed inside. There is anti-skid padding on the bottom so the sharpener stays put. Perfect for home or office use. It does not take up much room on a desk. The shaving tray surprisingly holds a lot of shavings before needing to be emptied. I love the fact that there is no mess. I don't have to worry about the shavings getting all over the place. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who still uses pencils or have kids that use pencils for school. This would also be perfect for a dorm room.|
I received this product free in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion and I can honestly say I love this product.

|3634630||RSP85MNIFE0NE||B00Z5XWCK8||AmazonReviewer||A1UIJH922C7LMU||Automatic||October 25, 2015||When I first opened it, I thought it was just a normal electrical pencil sharpener in which you enter your pencil and take it out manually.|
But I read the manual and found out it does more much than that, this does the job automatically, so no more pushing in the pencil manually and holding it till it is sharpened. It is a "smart" sharpener and knows when the pencil is sharpened and will automatically release your pencil when sharpened. If your pencils ever get jammed because it got too small, do not worry because it will push it out by itself, and there is even a reverse button on the underside that does that. I tried many types of pencils around the home and found that it sharpened each one equally well, no more loose ends or uneven sharpenings. Awesome sharpener.
I was provided a sample product for my unbiased and honest review.

When I was given the opportunity to try this pencil sharpener out for my honest review I was a little bit "geeked" about it. I usually use the manual pencil sharpeners that often create jagged edges or make the pencil break almost immediately. This pencil sharpener is very easy to use, just plug it in and stick in a pencil. It has a nice neat drawer that pulls out to remove the pencil shavings, so this cuts down on the mess. It is also not loud when it sharpens great for my late night study sessions. I would recommend this product to college students that do a lot of late night studying.||5||0||0||1456314699||good|

It's very sturdy and can handle heavy work ( like my son finding every single pencil in the house to sharpen). It sharpens really quickly and leaves a sharp point. It's ready to use out of the box - simply plug in and sharpen. My son really loves this sharpener. I've had to make him stop sharpening pencils. It's very safe to use and is easy to empty. It has four rubber feet on the bottom and stays in place while sharpening. This is really nice to have at home. We're not constantly searching for pencil sharpeners or sharpening with a knife if one is not found. If you have school-aged or college kids, I highly recommend this sharpener!!

It takes the pencil, draws it into the machine, then ejects the pencil a bit when it is done. It sharpens to a nice sharp point (perhaps a little too sharp for the heavy handed grip of a 4 year old), and is reasonably quiet. We purchased this to replace our old sharpener which broke after emptying it one time (different brand entirely). Here's to hoping that it stands the test of time and the test of the preschooler. It certainly is stylish and works well. I have high hopes.||5||0||0||1456314699||good|

Why hadn't I purchased one? Well...it's mostly because of the price. Are they really worth the money. Now, we have one and I can honestly say "yes"...it's worth every penny.|
Recently, I was sent this electric pencil sharpener from Etekcity. We love it. The kids are always using pencils, so this is getting in a lot of use. They need their pencils sharpened. they need their colored pencils sharpened. They love draw..so those pencils need to have a nice point.
Before we were using one of those pencil sharpeners that we used in school. You know...they one that you have to turn the crank to sharpen it. The problem was that the bottom had to suction to the top of something and it was always coming off as soon as we would start to sharpen something. It wasn't working out.
The automatic electric pencil sharpener from Etekcity has to be kept plugged into the wall for it to work. That makes it perfect to have on a desk. It came with a 9V DC adaptor. It sharpens pencils really fast and it even stops sharpening when it is sharp. There is a removable compartment for all of the pencil shavings to fall into. You can easily remove it to empty it and put it back in. The bottom of the pencil sharpener had four rubber pads to keep it from moving around when you are using it. This would also help it from damaging the top of your desk.

It wasn't as heavy as I assumed it would be, but it's doesn't feel cheap at all. The automatic loading feature is pretty slick (my kids love this the most!). It doesn't work with with colored pencils or any type of pencil that isn't ridged. I assume this is because it can't grip it tight enough while it's sharpening, but for standard pencils, this is a great device.||4||0||0||1456318236||good|

I home school my oldest daughter who is in the 6th grade; we have tons of pencils. She is always breaking, needing a new one, or breaking a cheap handheld pencil sharpener; kids. I've been considering purchasing an electric sharpener just to make life easier. It has been so much better having this for her, now when she breaks her pencil she can easily and quickly have it sharpened with out it taking forever or breaking every time she gets the lead just right. I know the last time I used a handheld sharpener I nearly didn't have a pencil left when I started, so frustrating. This takes out the hassle, it takes out the time spent, twisting and turning. A must have for anyone that home schools! I received a sample of this product from the seller in exchange for quality testing and reviewing of the product.

This electric pencil sharpener by Etekcity is truly a great asset to our household! It is nice that it is an appliance that we know right where it is at all times! It is not too big, and not too small - and works much quieter than the electric sharpener that I grew up with!|
I was honestly shocked at how fast this sharpened a brand new pencil - and how well it did it. In my experience with other sharpeners I am constantly trying to tilt the pencil while it's in there to make sure the lead is showing around the whole tip - but not with my Etekcity sharpener! It works great - and fast - the first time! It is a very useful addition to my house, I cannot say enough great things about it. If you are looking for a pencil sharpener that plugs in and is easy to use, this is the one right here.

-nonskid pads underneath to prevent slipping during use,
-A sleek design that will blend with most decor
-The pencils sharpen even on every side and the lead does not break after first stroke
-Automatic feed and stops when sharpening is complete
-easy slide out shaving compartment for mess free empty

I have it on my desk where I spend most of my time doing homework and writing. My husband also draws a lot and uses pencils frequently. We have bought tons of those tiny sharpeners that seem to always get lost. The problem I have always had with the smaller pencil sharpeners is that they seem to never get the tip fully sharpen, or sometimes they will break while sharpening.|
This pencil sharpener is one that you do have to keep plugged in to the wall in order for it to work. It comes with a 9V DC 1A AC/DC Adaptor. It has a reverse button on the bottom that you have to have something pointy in order for it to work. It does sharpen pencils pretty fast and stops once it is done sharpening it. The point of the pencil was pretty sharp. I didn't have to put it again in the sharpener. It has a removable compartment where the pencil shavings fall into. It was very simple to take out and put back in. It has four rubber feet at the bottom to keep it from sliding around when you're using it. It is a little loud when using it, but it doesn't affect its purpose.
Overall, this is a step up from those little pencil sharpeners that don't do such a great job. I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for a reliable pencil sharpener. I did receive this product for testing purposes in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

The best I ever used.||July 1, 2015||My husband is an artist and spends a lot of time sharpening pencils, so he has been on the lookout for a good electric sharpener. I decided to order this one for him and I am glad I did, it far exceeds our expectations! The first thing we noticed was that the sharpener has some weight to it and feels like it was well made. Since plugging it in, we have used it quite a few times now and it does a really good job at sharpening everything from a standard #2 pencil to some specialty artist pencils. The motor doesn’t feel weak like the last electric sharpener that we had, you can really feel it suck the pencil in and we were both a bit surprised at how fast it sharpens a new pencil. I would definitely recommend this sharpener to a friend and am pleased with my decision to get this product.||5||0||0||1456318236||good|

I'm a veteran of pencil sharpeners -- I was a school teacher for over ten years, and while each classroom does (or did then) have a pencil sharpener, I had an electric one on my desk. It was for me... but, of course, students would use it here and there. Considering I saw an average of 125 students per day, "here and there" adds up. Still, that pencil sharpener held up year after year, moving from one school to another, and even getting moved to my desk at home, until (finally), when my own children reached school age, it wore out. I thought twenty years was an exceptional run.
Turns out I was right. I don't expect a pencil sharpener to last 20 years, but I do expect it to do two things: 1., sharpen pencils and 2., last at least a year. And when we started attempting to replace my old workhorse, we got a surprise.
First -- and most disappointing -- most sharpeners we purchased did a LOUSY job. The pencil wouldn't have a proper point (70% wood and 30% graphite does not for a good point make)... or worse, the pencil sharpener would just CONSUME the pencil -- just chew it up. We tried electric, we tried manual. Nothing helped. The only ones that worked and worked consistently were the little plastic ones with razor blades. Do you know how hard it is to keep kids from losing those? SO frustrating. Second -- and incredibly annoying - we'd have a sharpener, and it would just... break. Stop working, Not hold where it was installed. In a different situation, I might "blame" the kids for being rough, but in this one, even my husband and I couldn't get the pencil sharpeners to last. Not a single sharpener we purchased in the last 7 years lasted for an entire year. I finally gave up and started buying cheap automatic pencils. Those aren't a great option -- there's a lot of waste. Even though you refill them, eventually they come apart and then you're tossing plastic in the landfill. Sure, I bet they'd last longer if I bought more expensive ones, but remember, I have kids using them. They lose stuff. So we were making do.
Quite a sob story.
THEN I got the chance to try this automatic pencil sharpener. I believe our search has ended. In addition to being electric, this sharpener loads the pencil itself, sharpens, and then pushes the pencil back out. There's no guessing when it's sharp, or fussing at the children, "Don't push too hard! We want it to last," because there's no pushing the pencil at all.
And it comes with a 1 year warranty. That's a nice change.
We're back to "old school" wooden pencils now, and happily.
I received this product at a significant discount in exchange for an honest review. It's a good thing, because I was so fed up with pencil sharpeners, I wouldn't have tried it if it *wasn't* free. I'm really happy I took this chance, because my faith is restored in the existence of a great pencil sharpener.

How many sharpeners actually pull a pencil in, sharpen it, and spit it back out? It'd need a team of beavers hidden inside. Well this one must have them! It actually does what it says. I tried out cheap,old mangled pencils from school years past and it sharpened them so perfectly they could have come out of a set of expensive pencils in their perfect little pre-sharpened pack. It sharpens quickly and the noise is bearable. This will hold a lot of sharpening a and it keeps the mess confined. Now the only problem will be keeping the kids from making this the latest toy.|

So we took out a big stash of pencils and he went to town! After doing three of them he said, "Please tell me I can have this for school!!" -- each pencil sharpened to a perfect tip in just a couple of seconds. It doesn't take much effort at all, the sharpener does all the work for you. We only had to reinsert a couple of pencils that didn't sharpen fully the first time through. They were from a pack of pencils we had from the Dollar Store, so I don't know if it was just the way the pencils were made or what, but it took a few times to get them to have a nice point. As soon as we switched back to the good old yellow #2's, they each came out perfectly sharpened. We also did a pack of colored pencils and there wasn't any difference -- still sharp as a tack in seconds. I'd say we went through about 25 pencils and then had to dump out the shavings. The sharpener wasn't too loud, but it wasn't ultra quiet either. Not a big deal as far as I'm concerned. I received this product in order to provide honest feedback on it and while I think the price might seem high, if you are someone who goes through a lot of pencils (artist, teacher, etc), it's well worth the investment for one great sharpener vs. spending less (over and over again) for cheaper models that won't last or do the job right!||5||0||0||1456309807||good|

Now on with the review|
DESIGN: The design of this unit is sleek and metallic and does well to fit into any office type environment with an addition of a touch of professionalization in mind. I really like the look of it and it really does give off a premium look to it.
DURABILITY: The sharpener here has a good bit of heft to it but not to the point where it is overly heavy. It is light enough to be easily carried around, but sturdy enough to feel like it is made of good durable material. There are rubber grips on the bottom that keeps the unit from sliding about everywhere especially in slippery wooden tables and that is a major plus. My only concern in terms of build quality is the fact that the plastic housing that keeps all the pencil shavings can be a little flimsy. For that price that you will be paying for this sharpener, I kind of expected it to be a little bit better in rigidity than it is. Other than that one flaw, the unit is definitely durable.
INSTALLATION: Etekcity includes a manual with this device but technically there is not need for it. You just plug in in and it works like a charm without any other necessities.
EFFECTIVENESS: When you put the pencil into this machine you kind of have to actually push in more than the average electronic pencil sharpener. The pencil goes pretty deep into the device but after you take it out, what do you know you have a perfectly sharpened pen. I really like the strength of the blades because it got me a sharpened pen every time that I stuck them in and pulled them out. I recommend only using this machine for pencils however and not crayons and colored pencils because it may break your machine or make it less efficient than it originally was. You can tell this one is only designed for pencil use.
As far as the sound, I found it to be a lot quieter than the average automatic sharpener. It isn't too loud and a lot easier on the ears. Another plus to the already great product. It isn't completely silent though. It is loud but it is a lot easier on the ears than many other ones out there.
CONCLUSION: If you are looking for a heavy duty pencil sharpener, I definitely recommend this guy. As a college student, I need pencils for test taking so it is nice to quickly push a pencil in before test day and have a well sharpened pencil ready. BengirlxD approved.

We like the automatic way the sharpener ejects the sharpened pencil,the points it makes are perfect and incredibly sharp.|
Sharpening colored pencils we found we could get through 15 - 20 before the shavings catch box is full enough we wanted to empty it. You could probably give it a thump on the side and sharpen a few more but it's no big deal to empty and easier than digging out a jammed up sharpener.
The only reason I couldn't give this five stars is the sharpener is we found that a few pencils, always with light colored barrels, would not sharpen no matter how many times we tried them in the sharpener. The one exception, a medium grey pencil, wouldn't sharpen the first four tries but after several other pencils it decided to sharpen the light grey. Fifth time's the charm I guess.
Even with the odd fickle behavior this sharpener does a great job in a short time with an acceptable amount of noise. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
