    Anybody know a good solution or other pens on the market that are either water resistant or waterproof.

    I have an environment where the current Fujitsu pens are slowly dying one at a time.

    Currently looking at Wacom pen but looking for others experience and solutions.

    I would contact Wacom directly and see what type of solutions they have available. http://www.wacom.com

    What environment allows your pen to get wet but not your tablet? Just out of curiosity.

    The environment requires the user to manipulate with hands test product. Their hands are sometime damp. When they grip the pen, some water is transferred from hand to pen. Not alot, but some. Over time the pens are starting to fail.

    The tablet is already encased in a harsh environment case that is water-resistant, not water-proof, but is enough to handle the amount of contact water we are dealing with here.

    How long does it take for pens to fail?
    It seems to me like it would be a rare occurance?

    I have the same problem, cirkitone1 did you ever find a solution to this damp/wet pen problem?

    I talked to wacom but as yet no solution.

    If you can take it apart, you should be able to weatherproof the pen. A lot of motorcycle riders on advrider.com do this with their gps devices.
