For those that don’t know what the EX-20 is, it’s a high-powered electric pencil sharpener available on Amazon.com from a company called EcoElectronix. The company manufactures and specializes in providing high-quality office supplies at affordable prices and includes a lifetime warranty with each purchase.
Recently the company received a 5-star review on Amazon outlining all the key features of the EX-20 pencil sharpener, it’s performance, and why people should purchase it over other brands. The customer wrote, “I cannot believe how much I love this pencil sharpener! We just received it today and I used it to sharpen about 100 colored pencils and a dozen regular pencils and not one of them broke, jammed or ate too much of the pencil which happens with every manual, electric or battery powered pencil sharpener we’ve tried over the last couple years. My kids are very much into arts and crafts and they enjoy using gel pens, markers and rarely crayons but colored pencils are our favorite and it’s been so frustrating to be able to sharpen one and not lose half of the pencil because the tip breaks off as soon as it’s sharpened. With this sharpener, they come out nice and pointy and nowhere does it show that it’s going to immediately break off nor does it once we start using it.”
One of the reasons why the EX-20 sharpens to a nice point is because of its auto-off feature, the auto-off stops the pencil sharpener from moving once the designated sharpness is received. The customer added, “Another nice feature is all the lead pencils that have the fancy rappers with designs and pictures on them always jam up other sharpeners for me because it’s a thick plastic whereas this one just shreds it with the wood, so no clogging or jamming. Of course one of the best parts with the tips not breaking off during sharpening is I didn’t have to spend a lot of time trying to get the tip back out of the sharpener with my fingernails or whatever I can figure out to get it out with. I think one of the reasons it works so good and why I picked it is that it doesn’t use a razor blade to sharpen the pencil. Yay!”
Unlike manual sharpeners, the EX-20 does all the work and can power through tough wrapping that often surrounds pencils without shredding through the lead and breaking the tips off. The customer admitted that they had some concerns with purchasing the EX-20 due to its low costs, “I have to admit when I first opened it I was a little worried because it felt like it might be a little bit cheap but I was pleasantly surprised by its performance and I couldn’t recommend this sharpener more - especially for the price! In addition to the price, another great feature is that when you’re home or in an office you can plug it in, saving batteries and when you’re on the go, (road or plane trips) it will also work off of batteries. It sharpens them very quickly and has a sensor to stop sharpening once it’s sharpened, keeping you from over-sharpening it.”
The dual power options allow customers to transport the colored pencil sharpener to any location without having to worry about having a power source nearby, it also stops the sharpener from taking up too much room on a desk or shelf. Lastly, the customer stated, “Oh, one more feature that I found is cool is it also has the ability to adjust if the tip comes out pointy or flat. You can adjust it to how you want the tip to be according to your usage of the pencil. I didn’t think that would be a big deal but I’m finding that I really like it.”
