Handy must have tool
By teacher star
from Atlanta, GA
This little eraser does the trick especially with colored pencils which will smear with non electric erasers.
I recommend this product

Helix Automatic Cordless Eraser
Great price works well for what I need it for (colored pencil art projects).
Changing erasers - how do you do it - wont work
By Colleen Gee
from Ripon, CA
The eraser it came with worked fine. I tried changing it and couldn't get the used eraser to come out. I tried pulling the holder out, I tried unscrewing it, and got nowhere so I dug the old eraser out and put a new white one in and it won't fit. Yes I bought the correct erasers. This thing is useless.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for reaching out! To replace the eraser, grip the eraser by the small, silver metal clamp that holds it and pull both straight out, then remove the white eraser from the metal piece. Put a new eraser insert back into the clamp and insert both together into the eraser body. If we can be of further assistance in this, please give us a call at 1-800-933-2542 (8am-5:30pm CST M-F) or email email@example.com. Our Product Specialists are happy to assist you!

Great for touchups
from Flagstaff, AZ
I have had mine for a long time. It is a keeper. I use it for going back on colored pencil or anything similar and taking out color for highlights. It doesn't strip the paper underneath. Use it gently, but it is effective and will do tiny lines. I also pack it for travel.

The box was huge.
from Somewhere, CA
Arrived fairly quickly, but the size of the shipping box compared to the size of the eraser packaging itself was ridic, maybe to suit the catalogue it came with.Good product, but keep in mind it needs two AA batteries to operate and they aren't included. Purchased to replace my old Staedtler electric eraser from years ago (since they seem to have gone out of production), and even though it isn't as ergonomic and streamlined, the Helix does the job well.
I like the erasers
They aren't messy, are firm and erase nicely.
from Hackberry, LA
Very satisfied with this eraser. Good quality and does what I need it to.
