The Adonit Log is a new iPad stylus that skips the usual plastic or metal body and instead uses sustainably-sourced wood. It’s like using a pencil with your tablet.

But the stylus still includes high-tech features, including a 1-millimeter tip for high accuracy, palm rejection and a long-lasting battery.

Adonit Log wooden stylus is for eco-conscious iPad users

A stylus isn’t necessary to use an iPad, but one comes in handy for taking hand-written notes, sketching and signing documents. Apple Pencil is the best-known model, but it offers features many users don’t need — and comes with a hefty price tag.

The Adonit Log goes in a different direction. It comes with a handcrafted casing made of FSC & PEFC-certified wood from sustainably managed forests. Each stylus features a one-of-a-kind grain pattern with a smooth matte finish that resembles distressed wood.

The interior is all high-tech, though. The active stylus works with a wide range of iPad models, and doesn’t require a Bluetooth connection – just turn it on and start writing.

Adonit promises 24 hours of continuous use on a single charge. Power up the stylus through its USB-C port, and just four minutes of charging provides an hour of use.

“We are proud to introduce Adonit Log to eco-conscious consumers that combines the features of an ideal digital utensil with an even greater message of waste reduction and conservation of our planet,” said Jasper Li, CTO and co-founder of Adonit.

The stylus debuted Wednesday at a cost of $39.99. It’s available for purchase at Adonit.net.
