Updated Asus Z Stylus compatibility – Will it work with my ZenPad?

This updated list of compatible ZenPad tablets may be a disappointment to some of you. The reality is, with the launch of new ZenPad 10 models, there is a fair amount of confusion out there regarding whether the Z Stylus is compatible with some, all, or none of the updated ZenPad 10 tablets.

The Asus Z Stylus IS NOT compatible with any of the new ZenPad 10 tablets. Here is the list of NON compatible ZenPad 10 models:

  • Z300M
  • Z300CNL
  • Z300CNG

So currently the Z Stylus IS compatible with the following ZenPad models:

  • Z300C
  • Z300CL
  • Z300CG
  • Z580CA

Essentially the first generation ZenPad 10 tablets are compatible with the Z Stylus, as well as the hero ZenPad S 8.0 (Z580CA) model. With the recent announcement of the ZenPad 3S 10 (Z300M) we aren’t yet sure if that tablet will have compatibility with the Z Stylus or not. We will update this page as we learn more about these new tablet additions.

We can only surmise that the Z Stylus compatibility was removed from these new ZenPad 10 models in efforts to lower costs and price points.

        I looked into this a couple weeks ago and found no reference anywhere in any documentation indicating Z Stylus compatibility. Cost cutting measure I’m sure. Thanks.

    Any news on the Asus Z Stylus compatibility with the ZenPad 10 Z300M? There have been OTA updates to the Z300M in the past months. Any include use of the Z Stylus? Thanks.

    I replaced my defective Z300CL by a new Z300CNL. With the new device my Z-Pen doesnt work.

      Sorry, if the display technology isn’t built in, then software updates won’t be able to make it compatible.
