5 Best EMR Styluses

5 Best EMR Styluses : Get the best for you

Wacom EMR (Electromagnetic Resonance) technology is based on the emission and deformation of electromagnetic waves. EMR Styluses normally work on E Ink Tablets but remember not every stylus will work with your E Ink device. I suffered from this issue as well and accidently bought a stylus which did not work with my Supernote A5x.

The EMR technology can be Passive EMR (without battery) or active EMR (with battery) and to be honest the performance is not that much different. However active EMR is becoming obselete as the battery add a bit of inconvenivce when used regularly on the E Ink Screen

Here we have compiled a list of the best emr stylus which work almost with all E ink Tablets which you can buy right now.

Best stylus for Onyx boox

Design:  The LAMY Al-Star EMR stylus with it full metal body feels like a luxurious pen. The pen comes with a lapel clip which can be helpful if you like to place your pen in the front pocket of your shirt. The size of the pen is quite small with the cap one making it really portable.

Writing: The pen doesn’t come with an eraser but the button near the can be converted to function as an eraser or for selection . Unlike other Supernote Styluses which have ceramic tips this pen has exchangeable nips. This pen has pressure sensitivity of 4096 and it doesn’t require charging.

Its weights around 24g but I feel its really a well-balanced weight though a bit on the lighter end. The stylus comes with replaceable tips and you can change it what ever EMR Stylus Nib that you feel comfortable with.

Lamy Al Star is a great e ink stylus, that has all what we wanted in a premium stylus with one of the best writing experience that we can get from a stylus. Its our first recommendation for the Best EMR Styluses.

  • A very premium branded EMR pen
  • Has a button that can be used as an eraser
  • Comes in many colors and is customizable
  • The safari version can be used as a normal pen with a twist.
  • A very balanced weight and feel
  • The Eraser button might not work on every surface
  • Not too great for sketching

Remarkable Compatible Stylus

In terms of dimension and design Kindle Scribe Basic Pen is the same as the premium version. However, it’s a bit lighter (0.49 Ounces) and this weight is negligible.

The basic pen is JUST the pen functionality, without the eraser and the shortcut button, if you want to erase, you have to use your toolbar.

This EMR Stylus conveniently attaches to the Kindle Scribe through its magnetic feature. Moreover, it fits snugly into the secure pen holder of the Kindle Scribe Cover, ensuring users never lose it.

The Basic Pen Lacks the shortcut button and the eraser on the Premium Pen, However its quite cheaper almost half the price of the Premium Pen. Its a great Budget Friendly Replacement EMR Stylus.

  • Fairly decent writing experience
  • The weight is not well balanced
  • Has an eraser that works great
  • Only the premium version has these features, which is a bit pricy

Kindle Scribe

The BOOX Pen 2 Pro has a great feel made for the Boox devices but it works pretty well with all E ink Displays. Whether you’re sketching, drawing, or jotting down notes, the BOOX Pen 2 Pro delivers a satisfying and responsive writing experience.

One standout feature of the BOOX Pen 2 Pro is its built-in eraser, which mimics the feel of a real eraser.

The pen’s nib is relatively soft, measuring 1.6mm in thickness. This softness provides a close-to-paper writing feel, allowing for smooth and natural strokes.

Weighing in at 19 grams, the BOOX Pen 2 Pro strikes a good balance between being lightweight and substantial enough for a comfortable writing experience. In conclusion, the BOOX Pen 2 Pro is a great EMR stylus

ReMarkable 2 Stylus Alternative​ - Best stylus for Onyx boox

It has one of the best writing and drawing experience. Primarily made of plastic, the pen’s materials are of high quality, ensuring durability and a pleasant feel in hand.

This EMR pen comes with soft black nibs that may feel strange initially, but users gradually adapt to them and they are readily available in the market. During use I found out that these soft nibs tend to bend during use, resulting in a slight swishing sensation.

With a pressure sensitivity of 4,096 points, the Samsung Tab S6 Light Pen rivals the performance of the all great EMR Styluses, ensuring accurate and responsive input. When compared to other EMR pen options in the market, it stands out as a compelling choice, especially considering its compatibility and performance.

With its affordable price point and exceptional performance, it becomes a recommended choice for people looking for a a cheaper yet fully capable EMR Stylus.

ReMarkable 2 Stylus Alternative​

The Noris Jumbo requires no hacks, as the eraser works flawlessly out of the box. If you were looking for EMR  alternative stylus with eraser at the end, then this stylus might be the one for you.

The body is wooden so It lacks a magnet so it wont attach to the E ink Tablets with a magnetic styluses.

The nib is 0.7mm thick and It has a pressure level of 4096. The writing experience is more like writing with a pen rather than a pencil which as I mentioned earlier is what I am looking in a EMR Stylus. So its not as ideal for drawing, but works well for writing

The good thing is that you can replace the Nib with other nibs. Its pencil like cool shape and price makes its a great option for people looking for EMR Stylus.
