The Quick Dock will be debuting in the US later this year, but we're giving you a sneak peak at JetPens. No need to fumble with fragile leads or tiny holes, this pencil is made to load an entire pack of lead refills in one go. One lead refill cartridge, called a "cassette", has a large capacity and holds 12 leads. This allows you to write for days if not weeks on end without having to refill your pencil. The entire cassette pops out and you replace it with a new cassette fully loaded with lead.
To refill your pencil:
1. Pull out the empty lead cassette out by gripping and pulling the pencil cap.
2. Screw the pencil cap onto the new refill cassette.
3. Pop the new refill into the pen body.
We haven't quite come to a conclusion about how we feel about the usefulness of this pencil, but at least you can try it out before it hits stores! There are four transparent pencil body colors (sky blue, pink, yellow and violet) and three lead cassette refill colors (sky blue, pink, and yellow). By mixing and matching the different body colors with different colored cassettes you can create up to 12 body color variations. Teach your kids about how mixing colors (for example a sky blue pencil body with a pink colored lead cassette) can create new colors of the rainbow (purple)!
