I'm curious as to how the S Pen on Samsung tablets charge. My understanding is that the S Pen has to have a battery in order to use air actions, but batteries discharge. As far as I'm aware, wireless charging (the internal method used for the Note and the S22 Ultra S Pens) doesn't work through metal, the material the tablets are made from. Since the S Pen doesn't have wired charging or metal contact points, how does it charge? I've just been curious since I recently got a Samsung tablet with an S Pen.

The Tab S8 has a spot that the pen magnetically attaches to that isnt made of metal. Its a coil similar to wireless charging pads, that wirelessly charges a capacitor in the pen rather than a battery. No metal in the way and bo batteries.

Yeah that's how it is on most new Samsung tablets, but I have the 2020 S6 Lite and it only has a metal connection point but no contact pads.
