It’s finally happened. You grabbed your Huion tablet and realized that your Huion pen is not where you thought you’d left it and after tearing apart (or cleaning up) room after room and searching all the typical places, you’ve come to the painful conclusion that your trusty Huion pen is lost for good. Now what?
Unfortunately, when it comes to losing a Huion tablet pen, your options are fairly limited. You can either continue your search and hope the pen turns up at some point or, if you’re set on using your Huion tablet again, you’ll have to purchase a replacement.
In this article, we will discuss what you can do if you’ve lost your Huion pen in terms of purchasing a replacement pen. As you read, you’ll learn about Huion pen compatability with various table models and we’ll ask some common questions you might have when you learn your original Huion pen is lost.
What You Can Do If You Lose Your Huion Pen?
Losing your Huion pen is a huge inconvenience, not just for its absence, but because your Huion tablet is essentially useless without it. As we mentioned previously, you can continue searching for your lost Huion pen if it went missing in a convenient location, like your room, but if you know the pen was left behind somewhere irretrievable, you’ll want to know what your options are for going forward.
Generally, the only things you can do after losing a Hion pen (apart from finding it) are to:
- Purchase a new tablet
- Purchase an identical replacement pen
- Purchase a different but compatible replacement pen
Which option is best for you will depend on several factors, most notably your budget, what Huion tablet you have, and if you’re willing to upgrade.
1. Upgrade Your Equipment
This is probably the option that Huion users are most wary of when they lost their pen, but there’s no denying that it is viable, regardless.
It is perfectly reasonable to take the loss of your Huion pen as a sign from the universe that it’s time to upgrade your equipment and purchase a new tablet.
Unsurprisingly, this is the most expensive option that will mean you’re essentially retiring your previous Huion tablet that is now pen-less; but, if you were using an old and/or broken tablet, there’s not harm in turning this misfortune into an opportunity to improve your circumstances and invest in better equipment. Your new tablet will almost always come with a compatible pen, and your problem will be solved.
2. Buy an Identical Replacement
Probably the easiest solution to losing a Huion pen is to purchase an identical replacement, either from the company directly or through reliable alternative sources, such as Amazon or electronics stores like Best Buy.
If you’re unsure of what Hion pen model you need for your tablet, you can either:
- Check your tablet’s packaging where then model name will be printed and circled on the front
- Check the product manual that came with the tablet
- Check the model number labeled on your tablet (usually on the back above a S/N number and barcode)
All these options should clearly detail what tablet model, which will allow you to find the Hion pen that is typically sold with that product.
3. Buy a Compatible Replacement
Let’s say, theoretically, that you hated the Hion pen you lost. Maybe it was an old pen with poor responsivity and made using your tablet a frustrating endeavor. Or maybe you weren’t a fan of how that particular pen was designed. In these instance, you might not want to replace it with another pen of the same model. Fortunately, you don’t have to!
There are some Huion pens that are compatible with more than one tablet, not just the model they’re paired with initially. Below is a chart of the Huion pen models most commonly used today, accompanied by the tablets they’re compatible with so you can choose the pen that suits your needs, budget, and preferences best.

Does The 1-Year Warranty Cover Lost Huion Pens?
Many Huion products come with a 1-year warranty upon purchase to ensure customers are provided some degree of protection for their devices should a malfunction or other issues occur. Understandably, many Huion pen owners are curios whether the loss of their pen is protected under this warranty.
No, a lost Huion pen is not covered under the 1-year warranty and would therefore not be viable for a free replacement from the company.
The reason for this is that mislocating a Huion pen is at the fault of the owner, not the company. Most warranties aren’t meant to cover products issues that are a result of manufacturing mistakes or causes that resulted in the consumer receiving a defective product through no fault of theirs, solely the company’s.
The unfortunate reality of losing a Huion pen is that you can’t use your tablet without one, and your only options essentially revolve around purchasing new items. After you’ve decided which solution is best for you, we highly recommend taking steps to prevent this issue from reoccurring, such as have storage cases and other tools where you can keep your Huion pen at all times when not in use.
