Other pens for the boox max 3?


#1

Are there other suitable pens for the boox max 3 available?
The tip of my original pen is already down and i used it for just about 40 h.
I also didn’t find a shop which would send replacement tips to Switzerland. Would someone know where I could order that?

Hello, you could directly order the tips for Max3 from Booxshop.

That’s great, but what if you lose your stylus? They are not listed on the store.


#4

Hey, the stylus pen for Max 3 is also available on Booxshop. Please kindly check.

The Samsung S-Pen (and presumably compatible passive styluses) also work, at least on my Boox Note.

I ordered tips form the Booxshop, but they take some weeks until they are in Switzerland.
So in the mean time I found a EMR pen which works well, it’s the “Noris digital” form STAEDTLER (though the writing experience is not the same much paperlike as with the original pen).
The Noris digital with a price of just 12 CHF is really a cheap pen and I like that it is longer than the original one.
But disadvantages are the following:

  • no eraser on the pen (I use the eraser form the original pen or just change to eraser on the max 3.)
  • drawing with a shallow angle to the screen is not possible (tip is to short)

I assume that all pens with EMR-Technology may work.

I think you should really look at the amount of pressure you apply. I have never ever had to change pen tips, and I have used a lot of tablets and pens. Granted, I only got my Max 3 a couple of days ago, but I have been using it close to 40 h, and the pen looks just fine.

I use the ReMarkable pen on my Note and it’s way better than the original pen the Note came with. I’ve had it for about a year now and haven’t worn out the nib (I still have a bunch more it came with I never used). Kind of pricey, but an amazing quality of life tool if you use the pen often.

The Remarkable pen has a desperate need of an eraser. I simply don’t understand why anyone produces eraser-free WACOM styli anymore. Until then, I am sticking to other pens.
