Waco devices are great, and most of them can last you a long time, unfortunately the pens usually go out before the tablet itself. Hopefully this list will help all those looking for replacement pens, especially if they are not manufactured anymore.

A general rule is that the Pens are forwards compatible, but not backwards. Most current Pro Pens are cross compatible within their respective generation.

And the smaller Intros (non-pro) tablets have specific pens that cannot be used with different tablets or Cities. Check out our breakdown of most WacomTablets and Cities, loosely organized by type and age.

NOTE : Pens with an E after the SKU denote that it has an Eraser. If the Into/Tablet SKU prefix contains an H (i.e.- DT), it is Touch.

If an L or K is present (i.e.- CTV or DT), then it's Nonesuch. Tablets end their SKU with the color (if applicable), i.e.- K or K0 =Black, B =Blue, E0 =Pistachio, etc.

The 13" Pen Display (technically not branded as a “Into”). One of the few Displays also compatible with 3rd party Pens, and able to run off of specific Android devices.

The 16" Into Pro (2016 Release / Discontinued 2020). First Gen included Waco Link, the '-AK0' model includes the Link Plus.

The 13" Into Pro (2016 Release / Discontinued 2020). First Gen included Waco Link, the '-AK0' model includes the Link Plus.

The Generation 2 of the 13” MobileStudio Pro (2019 Release). Similar to previous version, with less model variations.

However, (like the Gen2 16"), these let the consumers upgrade RAM and Storage through the back panel.SKUs: DTHW1321HK0A The Generation 2 of the 16” MobileStudio Pro (2019 Release).

The medium came in a “Special Edition” with silver borders. This gen of Intros is similar to Intuos5, but not the same!SKUs: PTH451, PTH651, PTH651SE, PTH851. Very similar to the Intros Pro, with slight changes.

These are similar to the other 2010 and 2011 'One by Waco Tablets, but with Touch models. Another older entry level tablet (2011 Release) only sold in some regions.

These are similar to the older 'One by Waco (Black/Green) and the Bamboo models.SKUs: CTL472, CTL672 Another older entry level tablet (2010 Release).

Also, Wireless Kit and Touch models available. One additional difference between each named tablet were the type of software packages that came with it.SKUs: IntuosDraw : CTL490DW, CTL490DB, Intros Comic : CTH490CK, CTH490CB, Intros Photo : CTH490PK, Intros 3D : CTH690TK, Intros Art : CTH490AK, CTH490AB, CTH690AK, CTH690AB.

White (-W), Silver (-S) or Blue (-B), in a 4×5 and 6×8 model. White (-PE), Sapphire (-SA)or Grey (-GR), in a 4×5 and 6×8 model.

I think there are a few from the “PL” series we had a hard time finding. Many of the older tablets and their respective pens listed are most likely not sold anywhere.

So if you don't see your Tablet listed here, or the Pen you need, chances are you're going to have a real hard time finding replacements, even on Craigslist or eBay. I will try to keep this list updated as new Pens, Tablets, and Cities are released.
