    How does it feel in hand?
    How does it compare to the default Galaxy Book pen?
    is the eraser rubber like the Surface pen?

    Did it come with nibs from the vendor?

    it's rounded unlike the GB12 and previous S pens. Got a cheap plasticky feel, not as sturdy as the surface pen, but not a deal breaker at all. No clips, but the rounded shape makes it much more comfortable to hold than the default GB pen. The eraser is rather hard and wobbly. The metal ring in the middle is a magnet, so it meant to attach to the side of the book. Tried it on the SB, and it was a strong enough. The seller didn't include any nibs even though it was advertised. Still look like it'll work with the default GB Pen's nibs.

    What is everyone using as a charger for Samsung Galaxy Book 12? I've got what looks to be the original charger, looks identical to the TabPro S charger, but I get the "plugged in, not charging" message all the time. I have a few USB-PD chargers (Anker, Tronsmart, Cygnett) that work with my Macbook Pro but only the Tronsmart will charge the Galaxy Book 12.

    Yeah, my Samsung charger had the same problem (it was used, so no idea if it was genuine). I use the Nekteck 72W 4-port PD wall charger and it works great. It can also charge my HP Zbook x2 G4:

    Any PD charger of similar wattage should do the trick.

    Hello Everybody, I just wanted to post my current findings and experiences on the pen usage with the Galaxy Book 12. I have been on the hunt for the pen, pen tip and pen grips that workbest for this device. Here is what I have so far.

    Recently, I purchased the actual WACOM pen grips for the intuos pen on ebay for $16 imported from Hong Kong. 2 come in the pack but the price went up. I also had a ergo grip from amazon which ran about $24. The "thinner" WACOM looking pen grip (shown in pic) came from Fintie also on amazon which was about $7 and came with another grip. SEE PIC

    The pen tips for the Samsung Galaxy book 12 are "finer" than the HP Zook x2 so I replaced my pen tips on both Zbook pens with the Galaxy Book felt tip nibs which feel better on the screen. Since they are finer tipped, the accuracy is that much better. IMO.

    For those that want a thinner folio to carry with no keyboard, similar to a small sketch book and a pocket to carry your pen in, consider these 2 items

    ZUGU CASE

    Please note: from my personal experience, the WACOM grip works best with the HP Zbook Pen because the cut out hole for the button is there already. I also like the added thickness to the pen too. (For the intuos users and cintiq crew that like that familiarity, you will enjoy this)

    The Fintie will need a hole cut out for the button (mine came out a bit rough) and seems slightly thinner. Since the WACOM grip is meant for an intuos 3 pen, it will be a bit of a struggle to get on your pen. The ergo is just much for mobile use.

    The Zbook pen also has thicker barrel and an eraser as added perk too.

    For those less adventurous, you could use the WACOM grip on the original Samsung pen too but may slide around a bit depending on your usage.

    The case works well. Keeps it secure and can easily pop in and out whenever you need to switch back to the keyboard folio.

    The ZUGU pen case will be tight with the WACOM grip so the ideal would be to carry the HP Zbook pen in hand or without the grip.

    Hope this info was helpful.
