My son busted up his old sharpener after a year, which had a simple mechanism batteries attached to a motor which spins a regular sharpener blade.
I was actually suprised just how cheap the components that go into these things are when I took it apart, most of these things it appears arent designed to last.

However maybe this Staples model is different? I cant say as I've only had it a month or so. I was suprised when I got this to see it didn't have a regular sharpener inside but something thats more like a grinder, this means it doesnt sharpen as fast as other models.. as it grinds instead of cutting. Still maybe it will last more than a year, only time will tell if this design is better (Im no sharpener expert!). However with Staples guarantee you can bring it back anytime if it breaks so its a no brainer really.

The one major design flaw was that you have to read the manual to find out how to orientate the batteries as this information is not on the device, which is a pain.

Inferior pencil sharpener

By Dull Pencils

from Cambridge, MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Staples® Slimline Battery Operated Pencil Sharpener:

I bought one of these pencil sharpeners almost a year ago and after about 6 months it quit working. I wanted a pencil sharpener that didn't have to be plugged in so I figured I'd try again and I got another one about a week ago. Bad move. My husband needed to sharpen a new pencil and that killed the sharpener! He was using it gently, but it was still too much. We thought maybe something was jammed in the blades, but that does not seem to be the case. This model seems to be totally inadequate!

Very happy with the battery operated pencil sharpener. Works as good as my old plug in-without the cord. Highly recommended!

Pass this one over

Comments about Staples® Slimline Battery Operated Pencil Sharpener:

This unit was not worth bringing home. it killed new batteries and the motor bogged down and stalled every use. Spend your money on the AC powered unit.
