530 Active Pen support?

2018-09-28, 15:28 PM

I have just bought a Lenovo Yoga 530 14" laptop, and it says on the laptop itself "Optional Lenovo Active Pen". Does this mean that the Active Pen 2 works with this laptop aswell, or should i buy the Active Pen 1 instead? I cant seem to find a complete compatibility list for either of the pens.

I have the same question and it's not 100% clear from the spreadsheet which pen I need.


Most Yoga 530s seem to use the "Lenovo Active Pen 2" but this is different from the sticker on the laptop itself, which as you say references the "Lenovo Active Pen".


Did you manage to find a definitive answer or even better obtain the correct pen?


The variant I have is a Lenovo Yoga 530-14IKB 14" i5 256GB SSD purchased from PC World.

 

Many thanks in advance for any advice.

For anyone else requiring the same information, I can confirm that I purchased a "Lenovo Active Pen 2" for my Yoga 530 and can confirm that it works fine. :smileyhappy:
