    Does it charge with Samsung Phone charger or powerbank?

    I don't have a x2 to test, however if the May bios update does allow third party, it will still likely require 20V chargers - nearly all phone chargers and powerbanks will only do 5V.

    Got one refurb Spectre x2 12-a009nr. Now looking for a stylus. At first got a headburn with lots of compatibility options.

    For now I see the most reliable options are HP Pen T5E12AA#ABL from PH store by $60 and Wacom Bamboo Smart 2in1 for convertibles CS320AK for $40.

    Aslo I find stylus for HP ProBook 11 x360 G1 Education Edition. HP site says it is compatible with the HP Spectre 12-a000 x2: And there are $30 deals on ebay so it looks lot cheaper.

    Did someone tried this on x2 with results?

    I tested the F.27 Rev. A on the iVoler charger and the iClever and neither of these worked. I'll be trying the F.28 Rev.A tonight to see if it might work.

    Does a 30W output usb-c from a powerbank will work on this HP Spectre X2?

    Wow, unfortunate to hear it didn't work for you. iClever was directly named in that HP forum thread by someone as working with BIOS F.27. Wonder what's going on. Did you have any success after upgrading to F.28?

    On a lark, I ordered a generic version of the Dell PN556W active stylus from eBay. Others had reported the genuine Dell as working. At just $7 for generic, I figured I'd give it a shot so that I could sign documents and doodle occasionally. Will report back when I get it. Ships from Hong Kong so might be a while.

    That's why I bought it. I had a thought that it might be the cable itself, so I have bought two other cables and still nothing. Not with F.28 either.
