Some of the most simple iPhone hacks out there are the stylus pen DIY hacks. Stylus users are always searching for the best iPad stylus or iPhone stylus. After looking at other stylus pens such as the Apple Pen, which seemed to work well but was too pricey for me, I decided that DIY was going to be the best way to go. Of course, there are about a hundred different options when it comes to stylus pen DIY, but this one is the easiest version of this hack that I have run across so far.
Sometimes, a stylus pen DIY will require so many steps that it’s almost not even worth having a stylus. Granted, you could always go down to a department store and buy a stylus for a marked up price, or order one online (a.k.a. paying a marked up price plus shipping!). But if you’re a cheapskate like me, or if you live out in the sticks an hour away from the nearest Walmart, then you are going to very much appreciate this stylus pen DIY hack! It literally requires no crafty skills or instructions.
Okay, so there actually are two little instructions, if you can count these as instructions.
It’s as simple as that! Do make sure you use the negative side of the battery though. I left that out of the instructions in order to keep it simple, and because it will be pretty obvious that the positive end of the battery doesn’t work at all as a stylus. Now, if you use this DIY phone stylus, and you still have the desire to go out and buy one of those overpriced ones… more power to you! (See what I did there?)
