Westcott iPoint Orbit Battery Pencil Sharpener, Black (16244) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I like the sharpener--but I bought this pencil sharpener through Amazon. The 1st one cracked on the plastic housing equally down the clear short sides. This was the 1st day after sharpening maybe 12 pens. So I exchanged it. My second one, I've had it longer but sharpened maybe 5-6 pencils and it is doing the same thing! I think this is a design flaw.On the flip side it sharpens well, it makes beautiful sharp points shorter shaving than another electrical sharpener.Based on what I know now the top housing will break through soon. I'm afraid it will become unusable. Yes--I know I can return it. I guess I just expect the product to function.This product was recommended by Gina K designs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and sturdy. Easy to use! This little pencil sharpener is amazingly sturdy and functional! I love it because you can use it with just one hand. It has three tiny rubber pads on the bottom that create just enough suction to secure them to the surface, but not so much that you can't easily pick it up and move it. It never slips!!!! The sharpener is automatic, so you just put your pencil in the top, gently push, and voila. Perfect point. But do keep in mind that it requires batteries that are not included.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke early on, warranty req paid shipping After about a month of use, the sharpener stopped sharpening pencils. The mechanism was turning inside but the pencils were not sharpening.I removed the center part and cleaned it out to ensure there wasn’t pencil lead clogging anything up but it still doesn’t sharpen.I checked the website and saw there is a warranty but requires paid postage. For the price of the sharpener, it’s not worth the cost to pay to ship it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke after 3 months mild use. Wife bought from store and we don't have receipt. First stopped sharpening, put pencil in and it would just cut off sides of pencil.. Then after many attempts the gears stripped. Took whole sharpener apart and it has plastic gears. These plastic cheap gears failed and stripped. I have a wired pencil sharpener from the 1970s that still works...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it should. It works great and has a small form factor, so it doesn't hog your desk. It's nice that the whole thing can be unplugged (just hold the cord with something else so you don't have to re-tuck it behind your desk), because when you go to dump the shavings, you really have to, since the shavings cup has a hole on the bottom to enable vertical sharpening. It's a slight down-side, but it's not annoying.I'm here though because I broke a pencil tip or something in my sharpener and now the auto-start/stop is working very erratically... I was hoping to find some answers, but I guess I'll just unplug and take it apart soon. Saw all the bad reviews and thought this could use a boost, since apparently people don't leave reviews on brand websites unless they're unhappy (true of many brands it seems).It's worked great for a year, and I'm the guy who likes writing with sharp pencil tips, so it's very handy. If I can't fix it, I'll see if Costco will replace it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Westcott iPoint Orbit Battery Pencil Sharpener The top unscrews and pops off the middle to let you shake out the shavings of your nicely sharpened pencil! The battery compartment is located on the bottom, (not easy to remove) and take 4 double A batteries. Razor sharp blades easily cuts thru creating a nice point. nice viewing area so you know when to empty your shavings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING My 7 year old granddaughter is a budding artist. We keep her several days a week and she draws with a colored pencil set. This sharpener makes a perfectly round, sharp point. It is perfect for this purpose and we have used it a lot. She wants me to buy another sharpener so that she can take it home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sharpener for home use This Westcott iPoint Orbit pencil sharpener is perfect to keep at home. I like the unique shape of the sharpener and the see through plastic. Makes getting a perfect sharp pencil lead easy. The only downside is having to use 4 AA batteries. I would still definitely recommend.

I have a plug-in orbit sharpener, it just stopped working. Nothing appears to be jammed in it, but it acts like there is no power.

Is this the same design as the electric? Meaning the lid of the battery-operated one will fit on the other?

Asked by: Snag75
Yes, the design of the battery Orbit is the same as the electric Orbit, item #16059.
Answered by: Tracy
Date published: 2019-12-06

For the number of people asking for replacement lids, and for how loose they fit and how easy it is to lose, especially for children who are the main people who use pencil sharpeners, it seems it shouldn't be impossible to have a stash of extra lids.

Asked by: Snag75
Thank you for taking the time to write to us. Unfortunately a replacement part is not available for this Westcott product. Our apologies for any inconvenience.
