Dell’s newest stylus, the Premier Rechargeable Active Stylus, has a trick up its sleeve that makes it easier to find when misplaced. It has built-in search technology provided by Tile, which means you can use the company’s Object Finder app to make the stylus buzz and flash its LED lights to help you find it when he is nearby. If you lose it further away, Tile says its app will be able to display its last known location and use its network to find it.
The stylus is Tile’s latest foray into integrating its tracking technology into third-party devices. He has worked with Intel for a few years to help track lost laptops, and says Tile’s tracking network can now help find compatible HP, MSI and Fujitsu PCs. Its tracking technology can also be found in headphones from Sennheiser and Skullcandy, wearables from Fitbit and even a dog ID tag from Qalo. This adds to Tile’s core line of standalone devices, which track personal items such as keys and wallets.
Dell’s Premier Rechargeable Active Stylus costs $110 and is available to buy now. That money gets you a stylus with up to 40 days of battery life on a single charge, and which can be charged to 80% via USB-C in 20 minutes. There’s no mention of wireless charging on Dell’s product page, but the stylus can be magnetically attached to compatible Dell 2-in-1 laptops. The pen has three shortcut buttons and 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity.
