Grounded stylus kit now available
15 May 2018
We now offer a modified version of the soft-tipped AmPen capacitive stylus for use in cold wet conditions. This modification provides a grounded wire tether to the charging port (DC jack) on the handheld. Using this modified stylus along with the Wet/Water profile for the capacitive touchscreen may help improve response in such conditions, particularly if wearing thick non-conductive gloves. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details. Additional recommendations for such conditions are provided starting at the following web page.
Along with introducing this kit, for the Mesa 2 we are also offering a modified ports cover (to allow access to the DC jack) and hand strap (to provide a loop as a place to store this stylus). The modified port cover is included in the kit. The modified hand strap is available to purchase separately. See the following instructions for additional reference.
