DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
Set includes one pencil body and two lead cassette refills.

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)!

This pencil works splendidly....

This pencil works splendidly. The reason I give it a 3 out of 5, though, is because:

1. it's a pain to have to buy the lead cassettes (it comes with 2 cassettes and I bought 1 extra and after having used it at school one day, it disappeared with one of my students, so I had to buy a new one in order to use those two cassettes that I still had) and

2. The eraser is a pain to use, as you must twist off the cap (being careful not to lose it, as it is important for loading new cassettes), and once you do get to it it's very small.

On the plus side for this pencil, I really enjoyed not having to worry about juggling the leads--I'm one of those people who typically breaks as many pieces of lead as I salvage when I'm refilling a pencil. The eraser is also very high quality, despite being very small. Finally, it's just so much fun to have a pencil that you can change the appearance of by changing the lead cassette.

All in all, maybe impractical, but definitely fun!

This was a great pencil. I used it for only a few days and i loved it. Even though you need lead pouches it is so worth it.
