The Adonit Prime is a stylus for the luxury shopper. There are versions for Apple tablets or iPhone, and both are made with premium materials.

With a price of $250, the Prime is for business professionals who want a digital stylus for the boardroom or office. A desktop charging stand both stores and shows off the accessory.

The stylus is made with the same craftsmanship as upscale pens. It boasts a rich lacquer finish.

“Prime is truly a giant leap beyond any stylus we’ve ever created and one that consumers will feel
confident to showcase on their desk or on the go,” said Uno Lin, VP of Sales and Marketing at Adonit.

Choose between Prime-Dash for iPhone and Prime-Note for iPad

Inside the Prime is a space for a digital cartridge. The Prime-Note cartridge is for writing on iPad. The Prime-Dash version is for iPhone.

But users have the option to swap between them. The stylus comes with one or the other, but each cartridge is removable, and either are available for $70.

Prime comes with a motion-sensing USB-C charging dock. Place the stylus point down in the stand for wireless power. 12 hours of continuous use comes from 1.5 hours of charging.

The Prime-Dash is available now and Prime-Note can be preordered from the Adonit website. Both versions of the digital cartridge are also available.

Those iPad users looking for something more affordable might consider the Adonit Note. It looks like a pen and is designed for taking notes on Apple’s tablet… hence the name.
