Rollerball Pens have the smooth writing characteristics of a fountain pen putting down a liquid ink, using a ballpoint-like technology. Rollerballs prefer a good quality paper, just like fountain pens, and need to be capped to prevent them from drying out.
Ballpoint pens are for many people the 'everyday pen'. Note that for some models, a gel refill is available which adds the smooth writing characteristics of a rollerball without the need to cap it between uses.
The stylus point on these pens works on all current touch-screen devices like ipad, iphone, ipod touch, nook, android tablets and phones. We have tested them with gloves and they work! Some are even combined with a ballpoint pen on the other end.
