Pair and charge the S Pen with the Galaxy Note9
Bluetooth devices give you tons of flexibility, so you were extra excited when you heard the new Note9’s pen is Bluetooth compatible! But the S Pen is no normal pen and it doesn’t use normal Bluetooth. It's a special kind of BT that will let you pair, charge, and reset the Note9's innovative S Pen.
Pair the S Pen
The Note9's S Pen has a new kind of advanced Bluetooth that emits a signal at a very low frequency. Because of this, it doesn’t have to be paired to your phone like traditional Bluetooth devices. The Bluetooth is strong enough to keep the S Pen and phone connected all the time, but you won’t have to constantly pair and unpair it.
If the connection between the S Pen and your Note9 is lost, just insert the S Pen into the Note9 for a couple seconds. It will pair instantly and the connection will be reestablished.
Note: The operational limit of the S Pen is 30 feet. If you move outside of this range, the S Pen will disconnect from your phone.
Charge the S Pen
The new S Pen is built to last, but its battery can drain if you leave it outside of your phone for over 30 minutes, or if you press the S Pen button too many times (about 200 times). To charge your S Pen, insert it into your phone for 40 seconds. In that time, it will recharge to a full 100%.
But how will you know if the battery needs to be charged? No worries, when your S Pen’s battery reaches around 20 percent, you will get a notification reminding you to charge it.
To check your S Pen’s battery level at any time, open the Air command menu by hovering the S Pen over your phone’s screen and pressing the button. Touch Settings in the upper left-hand corner, and then touch S Pen Remote. Your S Pen’s battery level will be displayed at the top of the screen.
Reset the S Pen
If your S Pen won’t connect to your phone or if it doesn’t seem to be charging, resetting the S Pen is a quick fix. To reset it, open Settings, and then search for and select S Pen. Touch S Pen Remote and then touch More Options. Touch Reset S Pen and wait for the S Pen to reset itself.
Note: Resetting your S Pen will revert all of its features, including remote commands, to their default settings.
