Hi ,

 

A good day to you,

 

The battery indicator for the Active Pen can be seen under the Lenovo Pen settings app shown below encircled in red.[oldimg]180560i8960018A22BAB011[/oldimg]

 

 

 

 

Here's the user guide https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/pdf/lenovo-pen-button-config-guide.pdf.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Jeremy

I havent used the pen that much really - so difficult to say how the battery life is in the long run.

Hopefully not as bad as yours..

Re:Battery life pen

So I used my pen off and on (rarely) for a couple of weeks, no problem. Then I used it to grade papers on my laptop, for probably over 2 hours. It said in red: Charge immediately 12%. Didn't even say charge the pen, but after I plugged in the laptop charger (didn't know the pen had a battery!) I noticed the laptop was 96%, so I realized it was the pen. 12%, put it in to charge it, stayed 12% and refused to charge for 3 days, then randomly on a Friday afternoon, it said 100%!  Geek Squad knew nothing, but checked a few things anyway. Expensive computer to have part of it not work. Today I graded papers for over an hour, then noticed, after I plugged the pen in, that it said the pen was 100%. So should we move our thoughts to the code or sensor that tells the pen battery %?  Because there is no way that it was 100%!

Hi,

 

I have a Lenovo flex 5 AMD. Lenovo pen settings says always 100% battery level; however, MS whiteboard app says "low battery level". It is very hard to use the Lenovo active Pen, I have too many disconnections.

Re:Battery life pen

Hello 

I got my new Yoga C930 Glass just few days ago. I didn't use it much yet. But when I started using it today, I noticed that I cant see the battery life status when I go to the Leonovo Pen Settings app. Check the image below please. The pen is still working because I didn't use it much, but I would appreciate if you can help figure out how to check its battery status. 

 

Thank you in advance. 

 

Best regards
