So that's why my "great deal" Pencil 1 from eBay is useless! It holds a charge for, like, 10 minutes! Tell me, oh Apple fanboys and fangirls: If you leave the pencil in a charging cable separate from the iPad, will it run down the battery being in constant full charge mode, except when used - for me, 2-4 times/week, for anywhere from 1-3 hrs per day. The main question I have about this, and so many inconvenient, unconventional (in a bad way), and totally counterintuitive ways in which Apple devices and accessories function: WHY??????
