I wanted to buy an Active Pen 2 for the Yoga 720 I'm planning on buying. I was looking at the two options listed in Lenovo's shop: "Lenovo Active Pen 2" and "Lenovo Active Pen 2 With Battery", but when you click on them, they're listed as "Lenovo Active Pen 2 For Yoga" and "Lenovo Active Pen 2 For Think". Theres no other discerning differences in compatibility in the descriptions either.
"Lenovo Active Pen For Think" is also listed on the top accessories section of the Yoga 720 page which confuses me even more.
I'm leaning toward the one with Yoga in the title, but just wanted some confirmation before purchasing since I feel like this isn't totally clear to me and there's a decent price difference. Thanks.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
Most likely both would work on Yoga 720 and Thinkline laptops sharing the same digitizer technology and the difference would be the add-on battery and filler.
For OEM products, the best way to get compatible accessory is the recommended part number.
As an example, using the listed model number 80X7008JUS from the website that offers an active pen along its package. Checking specific pen part number in the parts lookup page shows Part Number 5T70M55297 WCM ESP101B21C5 D9.5 BT Pen.
5T70M55297 is a Lenovo Active Pen 2 with shipment group:
Compatible to the following (using the part number in lookup page :

I was hoping we have a part number to compare on both versions.
Thinkline machines do offer additional features so it would be better to get a version that works best for your specific model.
As far as I know, there are commercial models and consumer designs but main digitizer functions would be the same as shown here:
