Click the button on the pen to turn on. The button feels like a mouse button. When on, it lights blue.

You can turn it on during charge. Both blue and red light will be on, resulting a puple color.

Works on my Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and Moto G5 Plus, 2017 phone.

If you just want a pen for clicking etc, it ok. Finger is still much more responsive for clicking. If you want to draw, or do lots note taking, it's not ideal.

if you went for Apple pencil Buy at amazon or Microsoft surface pen Buy at amazon , they are $100.

I have a Microsoft pen for Surface pro 4. It's much better. But it stopped working after a software update. Not sure am out of battery or what.

much better:
