In some examples, the pogo connectors of the recessed portion 106 of the stylus 102 can correspond to electrical contacts of the stylus connector 104 to transfer electrical energy from the computing device 112 to the stylus 102. [0013] In some examples, the stylus 102 can include a recessed portion 108 with electrical connectors to receive the stylus connector 104, In some examples, electrical connectors can be spring loaded connectors or pogo connectors. For example, the stylus 102 can include a recessed portion 108 with pogo connectors to receive the stylus connector 104. In some examples, the recessed portion 106 can receive a lip portion of the stylus connector 104 to prevent the stylus 102 from rotational movement when the stylus 102 is coupled to the stylus connector 104, For example, a lip portion of the stylus connector 104 can be positioned within the recessed portion and prevent the stylus 102 from moving in a rotational direction that is into the page or out of the page as illustrated in Figure . Preventing the rotational movement of the stylus 102 when coupled to the computing device 1 12 can maintain the position of the stylus 102.

[0014] In some examples, the stylus 102 can include a number of magnets 108-1 , 108-2. The magnets 108-1 , 108-2 can comprise a material that can generate a magnetic field. For example, the magnets 108-1 , 108-2 can comprise an iron material or alloy material that includes component atoms that exhibit magnetic properties.
