When it comes to styluses to draw or write with on your tablet, not all pens are created equal. The earliest  ‘capacitive’ designs took advantage of the inherent electricity in your body to fool tablets into recognising them. Because tablet screens are designed to detect fingertips, these early styluses had thick, stubby tips, which meant drawing with them wasn’t a pleasant experience.

Later ‘active’ designs use a built-in battery to generate their own electrical field that the tablet can detect. This means that the physical nibs can be finer. The Apex Fusion is Lynktec’s third attempt at an active stylus, and its best yet.
