Hi experts.

I am looking for inexpensive NFC Readers fully compatible to the Yubikey 5 NFC.

Yubicos Support recommends the Omnikey 5022 CL (90 US$, more expensive than the Yubikey itself), although they told me (see quotation), others would do, too:
ACS NFC ACR122U is known to work well with the YubiKey as well (
Unfortunately, this cheap reader ACR122u (30 US$) does not read all slots of the Yubikey and is therefore useless for me, while the Omnikey sees all.

Question: Does anyone use the Yubikey 5 using NFC and knows from their own experience that their NFC reader can read all the slots? If so, what model is that?
