Lenspen SideKick: Seek and Destroy Fingerprints

Lenspen LogoLenspen have a long history of products in the photography market. They rejoined us in the studio at CES2012, as Todd and Don chat with Peter from Lenspen to get an update on the latest products.

Lenspen introduced the first SideKick in 2011 – a holder that used replaceable carbon coated felt pads to clean fingerprints and scum – and since then the product line has been expanded with new colours and new packaging. The SideKick is a matchbox-sized sprung-loaded carbon pad which completely removes fingerprints from tablet and smartphone screens, leaving no residue or scratching. It then closes up to keep all the carbon inside and one cartridge will do 300-400 cleanings before needing to be replaced. The SideKick is available online and in retail stores from $14.99 for a single SideKick. Other package combinations are available.

Lenspen also has specific cleaning products for LCD monitors and screens, such as the Laptop-Pro, that removes both dust and fingerprints.
