My old, faithful swingline stapler that had been in use for over 10 years finally quit working. I loved my swingline. Another person in our office had bought the Swingline 20 and she loved it. I odered one and it broke after about three staples. We returned it and ordered a replacement with very little issue. The new one works fine. It isn't as powerful as my old stapler and I wish I would have ordered a more heavy-duty unit since I have thicker documents occasionally (we have a heavy-duty stapler in our work room so it isn't really an issue). The main thing that I loved about my old stapler was the huge staple cartridge. I only replaced it about once every year and 1/2--that was nice. Our company has recently instituted a "green-team" and one focus is on energy usage. I think that the light that is continuously on and flashes when the staples are low is nice but perhaps you could design the unit so that it could be disabled to save energy.

The staple stays stuck in the paper when you use the stapler. The only way you can get your paper out is to rip it out. After about 3 months of this and this being the second Optima 20 Swingline stapler I have bought, I decided to write this review (which is the first time I have done this). I was using the Swingline Optima staples hoping for the best results. It did not make a difference. I paid a good price for the stapler and the staples and am very disappointed in the performance.

Poor Quality Product

By 

from Towson, MD

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

The second we have owned in 8 months just jammed. Their product page implies it is easy to fix - NOT. Once jammed, it's toast. I didn't return the first one because it was a pain. This time, I was the one using it so I'm certain it wasn't the quantity of pages (only 8). Lost me as a customer.

Home stapler - Rarely used - broken in several months

By 

from Maryland, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

This is a smaller version of the same stapler I have used in several office positions. In EVERY instance the staplers catch onto the pack of papers being stapled and won't release causing the stapler to repeatedly staple and then jam. In the smaller home version I have, the sensor is malfunctioning and will not stop stapling until you unplug it. It is so jammed, it is not fixable. I will be looking for another brand.

POORLY made product

By 

from Moses Lake, WA

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

We have had 2 of the Swingline Optima20 Electric Staplers break down in less than one years time. They are made of plastic, and continually jam. The company refuses to give refunds, so think twice before ordering a Swingline product!

Product Replacement

By 

from Cobourg, ON, Canada

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

Due to excessive daily use in the office, our stapler quit closing the one side of the staple. Promptly ACCO Brands offered a replacement. Was in contact with the US Customer Service, and then forwarded onto the Canadian Customer Service, both were VERY polite, and quick to respond with help.

This product does not work

By 

from Vilonia, AR 72173, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

My boss bought me this to help simplify things in the office. It's worked one time, and after that, it has never worked again. I've tried using brand new batteries, leaving it unplugged, leaving it plugged in, and it still will not work. It does not matter if I have it set on "auto" or "manual," it just will not work. I've tried everything I can think of.

This product has been an extreme disappointment.

By 

from Cape Girardeau, MO, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

I purchased two of the Swingline Optima Grip (Model #48207) for our faculty to use. The main tray where you insert staples jammed on both and would not shut. Swingline Optima Premium Staples were bought and used with this product. I will not buy nor recommend this stapler EVER!

Waste of Money

By 

from Chicago, IL, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

This product is a waste. I have the A/C adapter and 4 batteries and the stapler still jams. I don't want to staples spit out at me after I fix the jam from trying to staple 2 sheets together. I have never used 20 sheets to staple I always use less and it still jams. This product is the worse Swingline product I have ever purchased.

Staples

By 

from Pasadena, TX, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

I really like this stapler but the one problem I have is that i can't put a whole strip of staples in it. I always have to break some off because it doesn't fit properly.

Meets all my expectations of an electric stapler

By 

from Rochester Hills, MI 48309

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

I had a different brand electric stapler that finally bit the dust. It came no were near the excellent quality and features that my new Optima Grip 20 has. I am really pleased that I chose this product instead of just replacing the brand I had. Need I say any more. This has it all!

Customer Service - Top Notch!

By 

from Hagerstown, MD, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

Had an issue with this product where I could not get the cartridge out to refill. Contacted customer service with this question, and promptly received an email back regarding my question. ACCO promptly send me a replacement and a mailing label to return the stapler in question. I was very impressed with the customer service for this product I would not hestiate to buy this. In this day and age of nothing but bad news, ACCO came through no questions and promptly took care of my issues. THANK-You!!

Nice features

By 

from Orlando, FL, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

This stapler can run with an electric cord or with 6 AA batteries (or both for backup). The illuminated light indicates when the batteries are low or if the unit is getting low on staples. It also has the capacity to be manually utilized. It comes with a removable staple remover (NICE)!

Wish you could fix this

By 

from New York, NY, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

I bought the product two years ago but it stopped working a year later. It has been sitting on my desk since then and I could not find any information of fixing this product all over internet sites. It costed me about $80.00 and only lasted one year - does it make sense to you? It's too expensive to give up this product - Does Swingline offer any repair service?

Quality product from a reliably quality complany.

from Gainesville, FL

Comments about Swingline Optima 20 Electric/Battery Powered Stapler:

This product does have great features. Such as, user control for staple placement, easy staple refill, and handy staple remover. It staples small (2) and larger (20) quantities of paper equally well. Quality product from a reliably quality company.

As been great for light to mid office work. Have only used standard staples. A box and a half of staples so far with no issues. Will buy another one in a heart beat if this one goes down.

This product is great to use when your hands are full....it staples electrically and the staple always goes in straight. It doesn't jam and it is quick.
