IdeaPad FLEX-14API: Help with accessories please!!!!

2020-01-28, 10:10 AM

Hello! I have recently purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad FLEX-14API laptop (model 81SS0000US : factory id PRC4)

I'm looking for 2 things

  1. a snap on case - black or a forest green maybe? (I know it will limit the foldability of the device, but I honestly don't intend to really ever use that feature. I purchased this particular laptop based on a pretty good sale at work and the ability to expand the RAM and replace the m.2)

  2. is there a rechargeable Active pen for this device? Does the Lenovo active pen 1 or 2 work with it?

Thanks in advance!

Hi ,


Welcome to Community Forums!


I tried to check on a snap case on the smartfind.com website. Seems like it's not available under Cases and Bags

I saw one online which is a hard shell case from a third party seller.


Active Pen 1 and Active Pen 2 rely on AAAA batteries. 

According to SmartFind website, Ideapad Flex 14-API is compatible with Lenovo Active Pen: https://accessorysmartfind.lenovo.com/#/products/GX80K32882

and Lenovo Active Pen 2: https://accessorysmartfind.lenovo.com/#/products/4X80N95873.


Hope this helps with your query.

That mCover case would be fine, but it's not going to fit the 14API. They don't make one that does.
