This stapler is reliable. I only use it infrequently, but it has always worked perfectly during the year I have owned it. It has an adjustable guide, which I like, that controls the staple's distance from the paper's edge. The only thing I do not like is the AC Adaptor. It gets very warm, even when the stapler is not in use, indicating that it is not very efficient. In these days of being energy conscious, I would like to see that part replaced with a better one.

This stapler met what I needed. Electric, Batterty Powered, and the ability to staple a decent amount of paper at one time. The only flaw is the paper guide. This part should let you staple paper at certain measurments per the guide. The problem is the guide moves easily, and when stapling, the paper moves the guide back, creating uneven stapling. Thats the only flaw, but I condier it a pretty large defect.

2 out of 3 staplers defective

By Jackie27

from Houston, TX, USA

Comments about Swingline Portable Electric Stapler:

The model 48200 portable electric staplers are at best fair performance and quality. 2 out of 3 staplers purchased are defective. One did not staple at all straight out of the box. The other staples, but does not release the staple, so the release button on the back has to be pressed between each attempt. I would not recommend this product.

No Luck - Twice!

By Conni

from Kansas City, MO, USA

Comments about Swingline Portable Electric Stapler:

Have purchased two of these in the last fifteen months. Both behaved the same - after two or three weeks, they would stop detecting the insertion of paper to trigger a cycle.Then, when you do get them to notice, they proceed to cycle AT LEAST TWO or three times. Not worth returning. DONE WITH SWINGLINE!!

Quite functional and has a sleek modern appearance.

By MissIrma

Comments about Swingline Portable Electric Stapler:

I purchased this stapler to use in the First grade classroom where I volunteer. I staple a minimum of 100 homework packets and reading level books each week (for two teachers). It works well, but is a little noisy. It is so much better than the hand stapler I used for the past 4 years. Great investment!

Portable Electric Stapler

By PattiB

from Harrisburg, PA

Comments about Swingline Portable Electric Stapler:

I have been using this stapler for a few years now, and it is great! Part of my job involves stapling checks to invoices, and using this stapler makes my job go faster and more easily. It is also VERY easy to fix the very occasional jam, and refilling the staples takes only a matter of seconds. In addition, because of its slender size, it doesn't take up much room on my desk. It also staples a thick stack of papers with relative ease. I would definitely recommend this stapler!

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
