Have you ever wondered why a product ends up being a best seller on Amazon? We have too. Best Sellers explores the good, bad, and strange best sellers on Amazon.

This week’s edition considers the Fintie Apple Pencil cap holder/nib cover. As the name implies, it’s an attachment for your Apple Pencil to help prevent you from losing its cap and for protecting the nib. Watch our brief video walkthrough for a hands-on look.

The best wireless keyboard for the Mac?

Why it’s a best seller: At the time of purchase, the Fintie Apple Pencil cap holder was #50 on Amazon’s best selling electronics charts. Today, the accessory is situated at #42 on the charts.

I suspect that Fintie’s Apple Pencil accessory has risen on the charts due to the release of the 6th-generation 9.7-inch iPad for 2018. This is the first non-Pro budget iPad release with Apple Pencil support, which will do much for the popularity of the Apple Pencil. As such, people are looking for some of the best Apple Pencil accessories, and this just so happens to be one of them.

If you’ve used an Apple Pencil, then you know that its cap is highly-susceptible to loss. The Fintie cap holder helps keep the Apple Pencil’s cap tethered to the stylus itself. Unfortunately, this cap won’t prevent you from losing your Apple Pencil outright, but it, along with the included nib cover, will help you keep tabs on the cap and prevent the Apple Pencil from rolling around on a flat surface.

What are your thoughts on Fintie’s best-selling Apple Pencil accessory? Do you think it’s worth it?
