Doing digital art on your tablet can be a relaxing change if you’re used to doing it hunched over a desk. With the right tools, you can turn your iPad or other tablet into your favorite art station

While Apple Pencil is great, the Digi Pen is an affordable option. This smooth, smart digital pen for tablets is on sale for $39.99 (regularly $99).

Digital pen for tablets

This fine-tipped digital pen comes with a few functions that make doing art on your tablet a breeze. The tilt function lets you draw strokes of different thicknesses and depths. The palm-rejection technology lets you rest your hand while you draw instead of keeping it raised until you cramp.

There’s even a solution to keep it from rolling off your desk: A magnet can keep your pen exactly where you left it.

The Digi Pen is designed to make tablet art feel as natural as traditional media — except now you have an undo command. With it, you can draw for up to 20 hours after a single hour of charging.

That’s considerably more than most charcoal pencils could boast (and probably just long enough to draw an anatomically correct hand). To see how much charge is left in your Digi Pen, just check the three indicator lights on the side.

Rated 5/5 stars by verified purchasers, the Digi Pen works great and could even be considered a more-affordable version of some high-priced pens with comparable functions. As one reviewer pointed out, “The image is very readable and is compatible with Notable on my iPad. It compares well with the Apple Pencil.”

Save on the Digi Pen for iPad and other tablets

Light but not flimsy, this digital pen is an affordable way to transform your iPad or tablet into a ful-fledged art tablet.

Get drawn into a deal that won’t disappoint. For a limited time, you can get a Digi Pen for iPad and tablets for $39.99 (regularly $99).
