When you get to it, just google the model number (not the serial). And I'm pretty sure there was no version with a Passive stylus. Either none at all (in 768p models) or the tiny active one.

Attached is a picture of the stylus I have ... no markings on it, no model, serial, p/n, etc.
No way I see to take it apart, no sign of a battery? I had been thinking that an active stylus would take a battery.
It has a side button. Button works, stylus works. It fits snugly in the Yoga 12 body. I have never had a stylus before ...
so I was guessing it was "passive" since it doesn't have its own power source. So I'm wrong?
So if you can tell me what you think this is, I'd appreciate it ... and also, I still would like to know what other styluses would be compatible that might have other/more functionality.

So I finally figured out -- this is the one I have, and it works:
If anyone can tell me what other pens are compatible, I'd like to know.

Right, that is on the compatibility list.
But what I'd like to know is -- will the Pro 2 or the Pro 3 pen work as well as the Pro? Or is the technology different?
I'd prefer the newer pens, if they work.

So, after reading way more on this subject than I wanted to -- and returning the Pen Pro to Lenovo -- I ended up buying:
Fujitsu Lifebook T731 T730 T734 Stylus Digitizer Pen CP389602-04
for $10, on eBay. It arrived today. It works with the Thinkpad Yoga 12 I have, about the same as the stylus that the device came with ... except that the back-end eraser works, the buttons are easier to access and the stylus feels like a pen in my hand. So I'm good with it. It does not have the pressure sensitivity I was hoping to get but for me that would have just been a bonus.
For the Thinkpad Yoga 12 -- I would still love to hear if anyone has it working with a so-called "active" stylus. But my experience suggests that it won't work with one.
It's nice to have a digitizer pen that is more user friendly than the stylus.

What Yoga do you have? Haswell or Broadwell generation? I use stylus on my Haswell Yoga for note taking in OneNote so pressure sensitivity isn't that big of a deal. But comfort is and that passive stylus is just too small. Also, it has "dead spots" under certain angles or rotations.
