pens compatible with Flex 5-1570 (Type 81CA) Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 81CA

2020-09-22, 1:01 AM

Hello all,


I have a Flex 5-1570 (Type 81CA) Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 81CA and I wanted to know of the all the Lenovo pens (like the Lenovo precision Pen) are compatible with it or is it just the Lenovo Active Pen? Also, would other pens work on it (like the Surface pen)?

Hi inima_nespus,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Surface pen uses MPP or Microsoft Pen Protocol and would not work with the machine.


Recommended pen via Smartfind is PN GX80K32882 Lenovo Active Pen.


This type of pen uses WACOM Active Electrostatic (Active ES) technology so most same pens works like the Lenovo Active Pen 1 and 2.


I hope this helps answer your query.
