Question: Apple Pencil 3%

My Apple Pencil wont charge beyond 3%. Seems like many people are having this problem? Has Apple offered a recall or replacement for this Pencil? Almost no use and it does not work.

iPad Pro Wi-Fi, iOS 11.4, Pencil

If your Apple Pencil sat around unused and not kept charged up for more than a few weeks, or so, OR LONGER, then the battery in your Apple Pencil may have failed and is dead and you will have to purchase another brand new Apple Pencil.


Sorry.


FYI and something Apple never divulges to it potential iPad Pro/Apple Pencil customers/users unless the potential customer/user is smart enough to ask about.


Due to the “always on an active/stanby” nature of the Apple Pencil and, also, due to its very tiny rechargeable Li-ion battery (smaller than the eraser head on a REAL pencil), the Apple Pencil needs to be constantly charged up to some significant charge level ALL THE TIME, even when not using the Pencil for prolonged periods of time.

The Apple Pencil needs to be kept charged to a minimum of 5-10% all the time.

If the Apple Pencil battery is allowed to drain down to 0% and allowed to stay in that flat condition for more than a few weeks, or so, OR EVEN LONGER, that very tiny little Li-ion battery is too small to keep at a 0% state for a long period of time and it will fail and the Apple Pencil will be dead and you may have to “pop” for another $99 Apple Pencil, once again!

Get this link about charging Apple Pencil, if you run it down to dead, or don’t charge it periodically, you probaly killed battery. The lithium-ion battery is real small compared to iphones and ipads.http://discussions.apple.com/thread/8308508?language=en
