G Pen Elite
As mentioned earlier, the Elite 2 follows in the design language of the original – sleek, minimal, and straightforward. This is a particularly great thing especially since this design adds to the device’s overall discretion. g pen elite
Device Body: The Elite 2’s body is constructed out of a zinc alloy and the entire device feels durable, dense, and solid in your hands. The mouthpiece sits on top, the tactile buttons are placed on the sides, the USB-C port is located at the base, and there’s a small oven tool that slips right into the body.
It’s definitely portable and will fit a pocket, small purse, and is even concealable within your palm. One thing I’d like to point out is that all the lines, grooves, and dips on the Elite 2 are more than just attractive. They also contribute to the overall ergonomics of the device – guiding your hand to the most comfortable and ideal grip.
Full-Color TFT Display
G Pen Elite
The Elite 2 reemphasizes its commitment to discretion by not only placing its full-color display at the back – but also making it so that once the display is off, it completely disappears.
The TFT screen shows the current device status, operating temperature, and battery level. There’s also a settings menu that displays session durations, turn off/on convection boost, haptic feedback, toggle between C/F, and adjust the brightness
In addition to the screen, there’s a small LED light that blinks as the device heats and becomes solid as soon as it’s ready to go. This little light is placed at an angle so it’s perfectly visible when you’re looking from the top-down but is a lot less so when you’re looking at it from a different direction.
