  • Best Answer:

    The lightning connector is for charging. The pencil comes with a female-female lightning coupler so you can charge with a traditional charger. A full charge is rated to last 12 hours.

    However, you can also "quick charge" the pencil off of your iPad Pro. Plug the pencil into the iPad's lightning port and it draws a charge off of the iPad's battery. 15 second charge = 30 min battery life
