Active Pen 2 turn off and tip change?

I recently bought the Lenovo Yoga 920 and have been using my Active Pen 2 for only a day's worth or writing after first setting it up a couple weeks ago. It already says the battery is low.


-Is there a way to turn Active Pen 2 off between uses? Is this recommended? Does Active Pen 2 use a lot of battery even when I'm not using it?


-How often should I expect to have to change the tip? Also, I've found the guide mentioning how to change it but didn't realize the circle piece was needed. Is there another way to change the tip with a common item, or do I need to order something special? Where can I buy replacement tips when needed?

Re: Active Pen 2 turn off and tip change?

Hi confusedkaleigh,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


I don't think that there is any of button to turn off the pen similar to the discussion here. Aside from removing the battery, you can keep off any pressure from the tip of the battery that consumes the battery in between uses. This would give less battery consumption.


There is not much guideline on replacing the tip and not much also on separate tips/nibs sold separately (no separate part number to order ) although I was able to check on a discussion here for compatible Wacom Bamboo Smart 2-in-1 nibs that may be an option. Using the circle piece or similar tools may be needed to safely replace such part.


I hope this helps answer your query.

You can turn of the pen by simply clicking the top button. It will disconnect from your tablet/computer. Then you can turn it on again by clicking the top button.
