    Anyone made any modifications to their pen to harder to lose the cap?

    Alternatively, I'm thinking of just not using the cap ever and just being careful not to get the exposed lightning port get wet/bent

    Or just keeping a plastic sandwich bag in my pocket to separate out the cap

    Amazon sells replacement caps that you can use while keeping the official one safe. Alternatively, there are 'cap holders' - as if we needed any more proof that the pencil was bad design.. Have a look at this search.

    Wow. Only Apple could spawn such a broad aftermarket in pen skins, tips and caps. It's funny, but I have been looking for a clip to use on my Surface pen since last September but haven't found anything I like. But, apple makes a bad design for their pen's charger and there are a dozen companies manufacturing solutions.

    It looks like Samsung has anticipated the release of the Mini and looks to be making a run at the 8" market with an SPen competitor. https://liliputing.com/2019/03/sams...s-with-an-s-pen-may-be-coming-soon-leaks.html
