If you want really good small magnets, get the ones out of old, dead hard drives. I recover and use them for everything from notice boards to nut & bolt recovery tools.

That is good to know, but will the magnets mess with the computer? If I put the magnets near the charging port, will it short it out? If not I will try the magnets, and see how well that works.

 

Thanks for the help

I don't know if HDD magnets would mess with the computer. I can only say that the charging port magnet seems pretty strong.

 

BTW, to dismantle HDDs to get at the magnets you will need some small Torx screwdrivers.

I went to the Microsoft store today and just got the Incipio Inscribe Pro stylus for $20. I have tried it out a little and actually like it. I feel that it is quite responsive and works well. As for the magnetic part, I just picked up some Rare Earth Super magnets and super glued them to the stylus. I attached the stylus to the charging port, and it seems fine. It fits quite well, and I feel that the magnets are strong enough to hold the stylus on. If the magnets end up being to weak, I will then try the magnets from old hard drives.

 

I just heard of someone buying a Surface Pro Digital Ink Stylus, and breaking off the part that connects it to the charging port. The person then super glued it to a stylus so that it would stay attached to the Surface charging port. If anybody has tried this, how well has this worked?

 

Thanks for all of the replies and help
