This stapler rarely jams and does what it's supposed to-staple papers together. It is easy to refill. I would recommend it.
Welcome to MyBinding video. Let's take a look at Swingline's Electric Personal Desk Stapler. With the ability to punch up to 15 sheets of paper in one punch, this is a great stapler.

Swingline 42101 Personal Electric Stapler Review
When it comes to staplers, Swingline is the go-to name. This company makes some of the best staplers around that are ideal for both personal and professional use including the 42101, an electric device. Here are that product's strengths and weaknesses so you can learn all about it and determine if it's the stapler that's right for your document fastening needs.
The 42101 has a decent stapling capacity especially for a personal device. It can fasten up to 15 sheets of 20 lb. bond paper, so it will be good for stapling correspondence, professional documents, and school assignments.
This device was designed to be portable. As such, it can be powered by 4 AA batteries so you can use it wherever you need to. If you're working with it at home or in the office, you can plug it into an electrical outlet with the included AC adapter and not use up all your batteries.
The 42101 only weighs 2 pounds, so when you do tote it around, it won't be difficult at all.
When the batteries start to run out of juice, you'll be able to tell thanks to the unit's low-battery indicator. They way, you'll know to have extra batteries on-hand.
Although this is an electric stapler, it operates quietly. You'll be able to use it in a shared work environment and your colleagues won't be bothered by it.
This is a front-loading device that's compatible with Swingline S.F. 4 premium staples. When you need to reload the device, all you need to do is press a button and you can put the new staples in.
The 42101 is affordably priced so it's perfect for anyone who needs a portable electric stapler and yet still wants to save some money. It's backed by a 2-year warranty and is incredibly reliable. (You probably won't even need to use the warranty.)
As you already know, the 42101 has a 15-sheet stapling capacity. This will be fine for personal documents but it's not enough for heavy-duty stapling.
The 42101 doesn't open up like a standard stapler so you won't be able to use it for tacking (i.e. posting things on bulletin boards). You should have another device handy if you need to fasten your documents to a surface.
It's true that the Swingline 42101 has a couple of flaws, but they really don't detract from what's great about this stapler. Finding a good, affordable electric stapler that's also portable can be difficult, so it's great that this device is available. The stapling capacity is good for personal use and it could even be used in a professional office as well. It's good that this device can be operated by either an AC adapter or batteries, and that it's equipped with a low-battery indicator. The affordable price and generous warranty make this product even more appealing. So if you're looking for the right electric stapler, be sure to check out the 42101.
