If you're use to struggling with the stapling of multiple sheets of paper this is likely the stapler for you!

Power assisted suggests some form of battery operated stapler, which this isn't. Sent to me to review I soon found that power assisted just means this will make light work of stapling multiple sheets of paper. No more using two hands to try and force a stapler to do it's job, just pop the sheets in and with a single hand press down.

There is a handy guide on the front of the stapler to show you how many sheets you can expect to staple with different staple types (essentially larger staples = more sheets). Unlike some staplers this doesn't feature the ability to have staples turned out rather than in, a feature I've never used but something to be aware of.

This larger than your average stapler, but not so large that it's unsuitable for use at home. It feels a lot more solidly constructed than the cheap stapler work have provided me and it's backed up by a 5 year guarantee.

Great stapler for the office of the home.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a large and heavy stapler which if left out takes up a considerable amount of desk space. It sits at around 17cm high and 21 cm long. It does, however, have a solid, weighty, reassuring feel to it. The number of pages that can be stapled in one go depends on the staples you use. Mine came with a pack of Rapesco 923/10mm staples that are recommended for stapling between 40 and 70 pages. Longer 923/12mm staples can cope with up to 90 pages. 'Standard' staples - 24/6mm will only staple up to 30 pages however. Not rocket science i guess, the longer the staples the more pages they can hold together. To get best use of this stapler you will need to source the correct staples though.

The term 'Power Assisted' is a little misleading. It suggests some sort of battery operated motor to force the staples through sheets of paper. In fact the length of the stapler simply allow you to leverage more pressure when stapling. Not a big issue if you know what you're ordering but a potential pitfall if you're expecting a fancy electric stapler.

Other features, there's a yellow paper guide, purple in the Amazon picture, which allows you to make sure that multiple stapled documents are all stapled in the same place. This guide when moved to a 30 degree angle can also be used to help clear any trapped staples from the stapler. Refilling is easy by pulling back the top of the stapler and inserting the staples into the staple channel with staples pointing down. It holds a fair number of staples - very slightly above 100 when fully loaded.

Overall if you're looking for a powerful mechanical stapler, and have the space, this stapler looks like a good choice. Plus it comes with a 15 year guarantee.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This stapler is an outstanding piece of office equipment, if perhaps just a little bit too big. It is substantial, very well made, and requires only a little effort to staple a great thickness of paper or card. It can also accommodate a variety of different strength and length staples on the standard pitch without jamming.

It is not 'power assisted', it merely has much better leverage than a more conventional old fashioned office stapler, and therefore requires a bigger footprint on the desk. It has a rubber insert underneath at the front to stop it sliding when the pressure is applied.

Loading is trivially easy: just lift the top part all the way back to fully open the stapler, drop in the new staples and then close it again until the top clicks into place.

The adjustable backstop is a very useful feature, making life so much easier when trying to align the staples the correct distance from the back of the papers being bound. However the closest it gets to the staples is about 10mm; I tend to mainly use three 26/6 staples at about 4mm in from the edge as a temporary binding on thinner documents to be able to clear ring binder holes, so will need to bodge in an extra spacer of some kind.

Additionally, the backstop is designed to be used, when rotated 30 degrees out of normal position, to enable the stapler to be more easily cleared of jams. It has not jammed yet so I cannot say how well this works.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you've seen the advert where the man carries 20 bags of shopping from the boot of his car to the front door, manages to get his door keys out, opens said door and nods triumphantly to his disinterested wife before eating a bar of chocolate, this is a stapler for that kind of man. A man who can walk barefoot across hot coals. A man who can have hair removal strips peeled off without wincing. Yes, it's the Superman of staplers.

Though claiming to be 'power assisted', all it means is that you don't need to use much pressure to get it working. Even a girl could do it. Under the channel where the staples sit is an orange edge adjuster with ten settings that doubles up to remove any jams by turning it slightly and pressing down. (Other colours are available.)

Packaged with 1,000 10mm staples, it claims to be able to staple together 40-70 sheets but I managed more than that, with 85 being the most. However, it isn't much use for a few sheets, as the staples will be bent back through the top sheet. Get one of these and everyone in the office will want a turn. It might be a silly price, but you'll only ever need to buy one as it comes with a 15 year guarantee.

Having written this brief review (there's not much to say about a stapler)and read it out to 'her-who-must-be-obeyed', I was tempted to use it to acquaint her tongue with the table as my ears were verbally assaulted by plans for the back garden.
