Chuwi HiPen H1 active stylus launched


The 2in1 tablet Chuwi Hi12 is one of the best options among the Cherry Trail tablets especially thanks to the excellent 2160×1440 pixel resolution screen and the useful, but rare 3:2 aspect ratio. But until today one of the lacking features has been the stylus support, well not anymore because the Chuwi HiPen H1 just launched in order to fix that.

Chuwi HiPen H1 is an active stylus designed specifically for the use with the Hi12 tablet and on paper it looks really good. Featuring 256 pressure levels (software adjusted even 512 levels), aluminum metal body with 1.2mm/1.6mm writing tips, under 2mm precision limit, 30-degree writing angle support and palm supression control technology just does the trick.

The pen has two buttons capable of mimicking the mouse buttons and being powered by the dry AAAA battery it can be used for up to 250 hours. The auto sleep function helps to preserve some power so the battery exchange won’t be a common occurence.

Chuwi HiPen H1 is a pretty handy addition to the Hi12 tablet accessory family and with the official retail price of $29.99 it’s also nothing crazy expensive and out of the reach. So for those looking to use the great 12-inch tablet screen fully with some active stylus then this is the way to go. You can get it for example here for even a dollar cheaper.

    Description at TinyDeal says: “Third party product, NOT made by CHUWI Corp”. I’m confused.

      Yup, but because it’s officially posted on Chuwi website and they are pretty vocal about it i would guess the error is on the side of Tinydeal.

    too bad about those different version of the Chuwi Hi12, a) does not support dual boot, b) does not support the pen c) does not support wtf

    Actually i have the original Chuwi HiPen H1, and guess what it does not work at all, just nothing, i reinstalled all drivers but no chance, so it seems i have to buy a new Chuwi Hi12 to get the pen running, even worse:
    There is no mentioning of FW, HW SN or whatever so you can know it might work or not …
