The apple Pencil will only take about 10 minutes to have a full charge. It will last a good 8-12 hours depending on the amount of use and or what your doing for instance taking notes or doing a stipple drawing will vary the time of discharge. I use the Apple Pencil for art and I get about 10 hours out of it easily.

If you ask Google it will tell you how this is done. I asked Siri and she brought me to this website If you ask Google it will tell you how this is done. I asked Siri and she brought me to this website where other people have asked and there are no answers. Well here's your answer… When you plug your Apple Pencil into the lightning connector on your iPad pro you can check your notifications tray Then tap on the widgets tab. There you will see a battery indicator and you can watch how quickly he charges and of course you can see when it is fully charged. Happy penciling! :-)
