An upside of most note-taking e-readers using EMR styluses is the relative ease to find alternatives (if you don't like the generic stylus Onyx Boox and Boyue include with their e-readers) or replacements. I've tried Samsung's EMR-based S-Pen on the Likebook Ares Note, and it worked without issue (the rubber-tipped S-Pen felt superior to Boyue's hard-tipped stylus). Wacom - the patent holder of electromagnetic resonance (EMR) technology - also sells styluses that are compatible with Remarkable, Onyx Boox, Boyue, and Supernote devices. Below are two available options:
- The more affordable option - developed in conjunction with STAEDTLER - is the STAEDTLER Noris digital classic. A more expensive version of the stylus - the Noris digital jumbo - also includes a digital eraser at the top of the pen. Both these are styluses that were developed for the education sector and hence resemble the classic design of STAEDTLER pencils.
- Supernote includes the Lamy AL-star Pen with their devices. The stylus looks like a pen and even consists of a pen cap. Like the STAEDTLER Noris, Wacom worked in partnership with Lamy to produce the stylus. The AL-star is more premium and costs more in comparison to the Noris digital classic.
Both options above are battery-free, have an 0.7 mm tip and 4000 pressure levels.
