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.

battery operated pencil sharpener

Comments about Staples® Slimline Battery Operated Pencil Sharpener:

The slimline pencil sharpener is comparable to other similar brands on the market. I feel it's under powered. It will sharpen pencils well if you slowly press the pencil in without stalling the motor.

Comments about Staples® Slimline Battery Operated Pencil Sharpener:

I have an autistic daughter who likes to color with pencils. She hates crayons. She has used many of these sharpeners since she keeps a sharp point on her pencils all the time. We always keep a spare sharpener on hand, since not having one is not an option.
I used to find that these sharpeners last a decent time and I feel I get my moneys worth.
Lately I have found that while the motor which turns the sharpening gears seems to work, no grinding is occurring. This is very frustrating for her and me. I debate trying another sharpener brand but choices are limited.
In all honesty, I and considering finding an old hand cranked sharpener.

Comments about Staples® Slimline Battery Operated Pencil Sharpener:

Bought this sharpener so my kids would not keep bringing me those cheap little pencil sharpeners with the characters on them to trim their pencils since those things never work right. Works great. Gives a good, clean, sharp point. What more could you ask for?
