Surface Pro 3 Stylus

Recommended Posts

Hi.  Just picked up SP3.  The styllus has batteries.  Are they being drained when not in use?  Am I supposed to push a button to shut it off?

Thank you for your input.

The AAAA battery is supposed to last up to one year. There is no power button. If you wanted to store the pen for a while, you could always remove the battery.

Where are you guys putting the Surface Pen?

 

I put mine on the left side just above the hinge.

 

Pros: Stuck on really good

Cons: Obstructing volume up/Down and makes it hard to hold in landscape

Mine is attached to the keyboard cover, left side next to the kickstand hinge. Aiming the cap in the direction of the Surface logo, I don't have any problem accessing the volume keys, but then again, I don't ever listen to anything with the cover closed. I don't use it for audio, just the occasional video.

I decided not to attached the pen holder thing in order to be able to slide the SP3 into a smaller bag.  Instead, if I want to keep the pen with the SP3 I simply slide the pocked clip over the hinge in the cover and keep it on the outside fo the SP3 keyboard to carry around.
