stylus pen

A stylus that absorbs electricity for use on modern smartphones, tablets and other capacitive touchscreens. Also called a "touch pen," many people find using the stylus more comfortable than tapping and swiping with their fingers, no matter whether they have big or small hands. See stylus and touchscreen.
