When you just purchased a Surface or lost/damaged your existing Surface Pen and need to buy a new stylus, you may find that the Microsoft Surface Pen is not cheap and may not want to spend that much money. In this case, consider the RENAISSER Raphael series stylus, which is only one-fourth of the price.
Compared to the Microsoft Surface Pen, the Raphael stylus has side buttons that allow for quick access to the right-click and eraser functions. On the other hand, the eraser of the Surface Pen is located at the end of the pen and can only be used when the pen is turned upside down. With the Raphael stylus, you can simply press the side button to access the eraser function without having to flip the pen, which can greatly improve work efficiency.
If you are accustomed to using the eraser at the end of the pen, don't worry. The Raphael 530 model stylus has both side buttons and an eraser at the end of the pen, so you can choose your preferred method of erasing.
Unlike the Surface Pen, which uses AAAA batteries for power, the Raphael stylus can be charged via USB-C or micro-USB. This not only makes it more environmentally friendly but also eliminates the hassle of constantly replacing batteries.
Overall, the Raphael series stylus is a high-cost-performance alternative to the Surface Pen. Its design is more user-friendly, its functions are richer, and it is more environmentally friendly. If you are looking for a suitable Surface stylus, the Raphael stylus is a very good choice.
