Microsoft updated the Surface Pen line with the addition of a Slim Pen. This new model is expensive, but it comes with some interesting features, such as wireless charging (Surface Pro X) and a slim design, hence its name.

The new Microsoft stylus
How do you improve the classic Surface Pen? Add wireless charging and a built-in battery with a slim design.
The classic and more affordable stylus
The Microsoft Classic Surface Pen remains a solid stylus for Surface hardware (and other compatible devices). You will lose the built-in battery, wireless charging and slim design, but save some money in the process.
Tested and tested
Unleash your creativity
The fact that Microsoft has a new stylus does not necessarily mean you have to buy it in the classic Surface Pen. This pencil still has excellent potential for creative work.
