Mini-Review: Don’t Lose Your Apple Pencil Cap – Get the PencilCozy

I recently purchased a 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and along with it I also grabbed an Apple Pencil. While I love both of my new treasures, I immediately found I had a tendency to lose the cap that covers the Apple Pencil’s Lightning Connector. So, it was off to Amazon to see what I could see…

Almost immediately, I found the PencilCozy from Cozy Industries. This $7.99 piece of silicone slides over the barrel of the Apple Pencil, and then over the Pencil Cap, thereby securing the cap to the Pencil, with no worries about losing the cap while charging your Pencil.

The one I picked up was white, but it also comes in a variety of other colors, and even a glow-in-the-dark model for those nocturnal iPad Pro users who live among us. Also available is a “combo” model, which offers a holder for the Lightning adapter that comes with the Apple Pencil. (I wish I had seen this one before I ordered the solo model.)

Verdict

I have to say the PencilCozy is one of the best purchases I’ve made. I never have to worry about losing the cap off of my Apple Pencil, especially as it seems it can just pop off at any time. For anyone who uses an Apple Pencil with their iPad Pro, this accessory is a HIGHLY recommended purchase.

Rating: 4.5/5.0 – This accessory performs exactly as advertised. It does just what it needs to do, and nothing more. Plus, it doesn’t get in the way!

Price: $7.99 to $9.99 – Available at Amazon.

Note: Cozy Industries makes a number of other “Cozy” solutions for MacBook charging cables, HDMI cables, Lightning port adapters, and more. For more information, visit the Cozy Industries website.

    Yet again we see that something amazingly simple was overlooked by the post-Ives era Apple designers. When I got my Apple Pencil, I noticed immediately there were two tiny pieces that were destined to get lost: the end cap that covers the charging dongle, and an adapter so you can charge the Pencil from a standard Lightning cable.

    I’ve had this kit for about a month, and it’s very handy. Even the glow-in-the-dark feature is cool, as I can find the iPad leaning against my wall in the dark (the Pencil is attached to the case). I especially appreciate the retainer for the cap – just flick it with your thumb or finger to disengage and then pop it right back on. I’m certain that this cap would have gone flying by now if it weren’t for the PencilCozy.
