Vara Stylus

Vara Stylus


Of course you don't need a stylus to operate your NOOK Simple Touch, but consider the advantages, such as superior accuracy and the absence of unsightly finger smudges. The specialized capacitive stylus tip glides smoothly across the screen, mimicking the pressure of your finger, while the ergonomic design and soft-touch coating ensure a reliable and comfortable grip. An integrated clip allows you to attach the stylus to the inside of your NOOK cover, so you don't have to worry about misplacing it. Appealing accents include an "n" logo above the tip.

  • Length: 5.75"
  • Molded plastic body, capacitive rubber tip
  • Suitable for NOOK Simple Touch only
  • Imported

I bought this for my NOOK Tablet and it works like a charm! It has a soft tip that glides very smoothly on the screen. No more finger prints on the screen for me!

you can purchase a stylus at Bed Bath Beyond.comes two in a package for 7.99. It can be plugged into your earphone jack and you never have to search for it.

Perfect for fat fingers, my husband was going to return his Nook tablet (love the tablet....but), until I pick up this stylus. HOT item counldn't find stylus in my local BN stores (MD and VA), had to purchase online. I love the look of the stylus too!!!

This works really well with the Nook Tablet. I like the style of it and that it is lightweight. It glides smoothly across the screen, with or without screen protectors. As others have stated sometimes the contact "skips", but I think that is true with any of these things as well as with your finger touch, so I don't consider that a flaw. I like to use the clip to fasten it inside the binding of my Nook Tablet covers, however, it is a VERY tight squeeze as the inside tablet clip rubs on the stylus. It seems to fit a bit better on my canvas case than on my leather one, so you may want to test this before deciding on a case. I wish either the cases or the stylus would be slightly redesigned to function a bit better together. But, despite a few minor complaints with accessories, I absolutely LOVE my Nook Tablet. So much so that besides my own, I have bought 3 additional Nook Tablets and 2 Nook Colors, plus accessories for each one, for gifts for family members! That's a total of 6...and counting!

I have the Nook Color and I wasn't sure how/if it would work for this. I called customer service and asked if is was recommended for the Nook Color. The rep didn't sound very sure of whether it would or wouldn't, so she said 'sure'. I took a chance and purchased this and it works fine. My daughter used it and fell in love with it so I ended up giving it to her and have ordered another one for myself.

My son bought me a cheap stylus for Christmas and it would not work with the screen protector. This one works great! The tip is soft and I'm not worried about scratching the screen. I highly recommend this. The Vara Stylus also has a hook that works great to attach it to my cover. Only draw back is the hook, being plastic, could break if you are not careful.

Just got this stylus this week and just love it. I really don't like a lot of finger prints on my screen, it just looks messy. This is a blessing to have. Easy to glide across the screen even if you have a screen protector on your NOOK. I use this on my NOOK Tablet and it works fine. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has big fingers tips.

I read the reviews online for this stylus before purchasing it in store, I'm glad I did! It's perfect for games and web browsing. It glides smoothly and it's ideal for everyday navigating on your Tablet too. Definitely recommend. As for people telling you to buy one cheaper somewhere else... this one is made specifically for your nook screen.. it has a cushy bubble at the end for contact with the screen. Regular stylus are hard plastic. But hey, if you want scratches on your screen.... by all means buy the cheap alternative!

This is great for girls with long nails (or people with chubby fingers, too, I guess). It works so well and clips right onto my case. I'm ecstatic!! Great accessory!!

Sometimes you have to press your screen multiple times for a result. It does help hitting the small buttons or links. It helps you be more precise, but the downside is sometimes the nook doesn't register the touch.

Just got this stylus today...beleive me if you have large fingers an are on the verge of sailing your Nook out the window...STOP! I am now able to type, close windows, select items spaced between other tiny items... A must for folks who are having difficulty working on the touch screen.. Wish I bought this when I first got my Nook.

I love using the stylus more than I imagined I would . . . makes typing faster and more accurate and leaves no smudges on the screen.

I'm glad I got it, it works great. The only change I would make is for a little smaller tip. Other than that, I like it.

I ust got mine today and i absolutely love it! It is so much easier to use than my finger. I would definately recommend it, and already have!

I bought this so my little girl could use it with the drawing app. I find the stylus is not very small and tends to "skip" when trying to make a line. Since the tip isn't small enough, it was a waste of money. I just wish I had returned it before the 2 week period ended......

Like this , just know that you hage to apply a bit of pressure to drag anything. The main drawback is the tip is twice as large as needed and you end having to enlarge screen drastically on web sites to use the stylus,

Awful. I got this at my nearest Barnes&Noble about a week and a half ago. The tip broke on the 3rd day. It was a total rip-off. I ended up getting another stylus for a dollar, a few days ago and it hasn't broke yet. Save your money!

I loved my stylus for about two months, then it broke, where the clip is. Very unhappy right now. Ws very conscious of how I was handling this area of the stylus too, because before purchasing, I saw another review saying the same thing. Not happy. Buyer beware.

I look the Nook Color! Received it this past Christmas. Received the Vara Stylus for Mother's Day. Nice feel and nice length. However, it did not work well for all apps. I had to press too hard to get it to work. I do have a protective cover so I do not know if that contributed to having to press so hard. The end was soft but it is quite large. The stylus would not work well at all with my Word App which I really enjoy. As a result, I returned it. Hopefully, with time and technology, a more suitable stylus will be designed.

LOVE THIS Stylus, love the fact it works fantastic on my Nook Tablet and it also works on my Blackberry Torch. I think it works great, takes a little getting used to, but overall, LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! I'm buying another one online today so I can have a backup Stylus in my purse. :)

Not a fan. My fingers seem to do a better job. I have to press hard for it to work. Wish the tip was better. Love the texture of the grip though, its nice and soft. Hope they make a different one soon.
