With its exchangeable nibs and more than 4,000 pressure levels, it is suitable for composing long texts as well as for making complex sketches and drawings. Thus it combines the advantages of writing manually with the unlimited possibilities of digital processing. It is compatible with most mobile devices that support Wacom EMR technology – for example, Galaxy Note tablets and Samsung smartphones, as well as many devices from other manufacturers.
The design of this digital input pen for tablets, smartphones and notebooks is based on the LAMY AL-star rollerball pen. Endowed with Wacom’s patented EMR technology, the LAMY AL-star black EMR doesn’t need a cord or battery to function, and never needs to be charged.

I bought this e-pen to use with my ReMarkable tablet and couldn’t be happier. Great feel and perfect weight. Use the ReMarkable nibs if you like the feel better, they fit just fine in the Lamy.
I tried a couple other EMR stylii with my reMarkable e-paper tablet but they just didn't perform. They either required excessive pressure or they just didn't feel good on the tablet surface. The Lamy AL-Star EMR felt natural right off the bat because I already own Lamy Safari and AL-star fountain pens. Electronically, the Lamy EMR is flawless. The pressure sensitivity and angle detection is as good as the stock stylus. The Lamy tips were too soft for the reMarkable's textured glass screen (felt like writing with an eraser) so I simply switched to the hard, white tips that came with my tablet. The pen cap is kind of useless except to make the pen longer and better balanced when the cap is posted. I did notice that the paint is flaking off of the clip on the cap, revealing a bit of brass. It is my understanding that this is a fairly common problem with Lamy pens and it doesn't bother me. A huge improvement over the cheap-feeling stock reMarkable stylus and at 2/3 the price of the upgrade reMarkable aluminum marker, the Lamy EMR is a slam dunk. I cannot speak for the performance on smooth-glass-display-equipped devices but I would assume performance is equally good and probably works best with the supplied soft tips.
Bought this to write on my reMarkable device and love how the 2 go together. Hope LAMY begins to market EMR pens in other colors and styles.
As a reMarkable owner I have searched to replace the original marker with a "real pen". This is it! Takes the reMarkable nibs and has the size and weight of my Lamy fountain pen. The perfect solution.
This stylus offers a satisfying true pen-like feel for writing and drawing. I use it with my ReMarkable tablet. I love the weight and thickness of it. So much more satisfying to use than a lightweight plastic stylus. My only quibble is that I have not been able to find replacement Lamy nibs for it anywhere. It comes with two. Luckily, the Remarkable tips fit it just fine, however, they have a different feel than the Lamy nibs. Not better—just different. In any case, I highly recommend this stylus/pen if you are looking for a top quality EMR for your tablet.
