Lenovo Yoga 520 active pen support

Hi, is this pen compatible with yoga 520? 

https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B00VES9FHG/ref=s9u_simh_gw_i4?ie=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00VES9FHG&pd_rd_r=T7...

 

On the product page it is written that yoga 520 has the active pen support, so i think that the better thing to do is to buy Lenovo official active pen (?)

Thanks

Re: Lenovo Yoga 520 active pen support

Hi Avide98,

 

Welcome to the COmmunity Forums.

 

As most active pen using the same technology would work similar to the Lenovo Thinkpad Active Capacitive PEN 4X80H34887 , it would be best that you use the accessory compatibility tool here to check with the certified pen for your laptop. You can check or machine type from the sticker or get it from here.

 

Just recently (IFA2017), Active Pen 2 offers more features for active pen technology that you can appreciate better with your Yoga 520 laptop as seen here.

 

Similar discussion here and here .

 

Hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo Yoga 520 active pen support

And another question: are you sure that yoga 520 supports Active pen 2? On the product page it is written "lenovo active pen support" and only if i go to yoga 720's page i found "active pen 2 support".

In every case can you confirm me that also this pen works with yoga 520:
https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B00VES9FHG/ref=s9u_simh_gw_i1?ie=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00VES9FHG&pd_rd_r=QG...

or i need to buy this model: GX80K32884 ?
The tool tell me this code, but this one there isn't on Amazon.it Smiley Sad
Thanks again!

Re: Lenovo Yoga 520 active pen support

Hi Avide98,

 

Greetings.

 

Updating our post here, that you did manage to order GX80K32884 as it also appeared recommended in Lenovo Quickpick. The same Active Pen was offered that came with the Yoga 520 before it was offered as an optional accessory.

 

Active Pen 2 was just recently released and is not offered yet in the accessory tools but is known to offer more features than its predecessor. 

 

Active Pen GX80K32884 is certified for your system and would be able to deliver the need you have for notetaking in your University.

 

Best luck to your studies and please feel free to visit our community at any time.

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo Yoga 520 active pen support

i have the same laptop and same active pen that came with yoga520. However; pen is not clicking. When i get close to screen with pen; the marker appears as rhombus shape. But when i touch to screen with pen, nothing happens. I installed all the drivers, updates and did configurations. How can i solve this.
