What you need to know

  • You can now order replacement tips for the Surface Slim Pen 2 through the Microsoft Store.
  • Tips are sold in packs of three, though businesses can order packs of 80 if desired.
  • A pack of three replacement tips costs $25 through the Microsoft Store.

The Surface Slim Pen 2 has a flat design to fit well in hand and a haptic engine to simulate the feel of writing on paper. What it hasn't had, until now, was official replacement tips. That's since changed, as you can buy tips for the Surface Slim Pen 2 through the Microsoft Store.

"Keep extra pen tips handy when you need them with Surface Slim Pen 2 Tips. Designed and made by Microsoft to work perfectly with Surface Slim Pen 2," reads the product's listing. The page notes that the tips are sold in packs of three, but you can also get a pack of 80 if you're a business customer.

When the Slim Pen 2 launched, customers expressed concern that the tip would wear down. Reddit users and others online pointed out that tips weren't available from Microsoft. Until recently, people had to resort to third parties to find replacements. A Microsoft employee in an answer forum (opens in new tab) recently shared that new tips could be purchased through the Microsoft Store.

The Surface Slim Pen 2 can pair with the Surface Pro 8, Surface Laptop Studio, Surface Pro X, and Surface Duo 2. While the pen has a haptic engine to simulate the feel of drawing or writing on paper, your device needs to support the feature. The Pro 8 and Laptop Studio support haptic feedback when running Windows 11.
