    Sounds like the battery is toast. Great that you can return it.

    And why the hell did you want to install W10 in the first place?

    I bought it from an Ebay vendor without OS.

    It probably isn't the cheapest, but the new AES wacom ink pen is of great quality for a 3rd party pen, should it work with this device.

    Has anyone put a faster performing SSD into their Elite x2?

    to answer my own question, I put a 250gb Samsung 960 EVO M.2 NVMe SSD drive into my Elite x2 to replace the lite on 250gb one that was in there.

    Apart from lots of hassles trying (and failing) to copy the disk image over due to the new drive being slightly smaller, it all appears to work fine and is massively faster!

    Anyone have links to buy the WiGig module? Doesn't seem to be on the HP site plus this is for the G1 which also seems to be missing from their parts list. Also is wigig worth the effort to buy and install? Thanks.

    @efjay for WiGiG upgrade, you need the Intel WiGiG & WLAN card, MHF5-MHF5 cable and Intel 10041R antenna module inside the tablet, and a WiGiG dock.
    * HP doesn't whitelist WLAN slot on Elite X2 1012, AFAIK - so any generic 18260/18265 will do, eBay.
    * Antenna and cable are typically removed from either Dell WiGiG LCD cover from Broadwell/Skylake/Kaby Lake (5th, 6th, 7th gen) machine (and you sell it as standard LCD cover afterwards), or Dell WLD15 dock (the cheapest WiGiG dock), if short cable is OK. Do not buy WiGig LCD cover for Haswell (4th gen), they have incompatible antenna.
    * My recommendation for dock would be WLD15, obviously - for financial reasons. It requires more careful positioning, though, since it only has single antenna, while some other docks have two. Number of antennas does not affect speed, rather angle at which you can get reliable signal (since they are directed at different sides).

    As for whether WiGiG is worth it - it's up to you, really. I personally love it to a point I don't want a machine without it - WiGiG is still the only option to broadcast decent quality sound over wireless without any lag whatsoever. I personally have a TV, 3x HDDs, and sound connected to it.

    Overall, I suggest taking it slow and getting a WLD15 first, and checking if cable length is enough to put the WiGiG antenna in its rightful place. Mind the correct antenna orientation. If WLD15 cable is too short, you have no other option but to use (very long) cable from LCD cover, or try to order cable of appropriate length from HP. Sourcing antenna and cable separately will cost you more than buying a WiGiG LCD cover or WLD15 dock.

    A few things you should know about WLD15 in particular (may be applicable to other WiGiG docks as well):
    1. You definitely should get a USB sound card. I use this.
    2. Fan may get pretty loud right after connecting, but it stops shortly. Otherwise, it's usually silent.

    @Starlight5: Thanks for the reply. The info on the WiGig module helps a lot, will make it easier to get one. I wonder if you have used a Dell antenna as you mention. EBay seems to have no back covers at the time and i wonder if the antenna length will actually fit in the HP. I would rather go with the HP part for that to minimize any installation issues.
