    In general I'm very satisfy with my iPad Pro which I bought few months ago. I bought also the Apple Pencil too. From the beginning I noticed that I have to load the Apple Pencil immediately before I want to use it, and from time to time during the work, because the Apple Pencil is empty out not only by using it, but also without using it a while. Is it normal or it's only my pencil and something wrong with it?
    Thanks in advance!

    When the Pencil is left idle, it falls into a standby state that still draws a small amount of power so that it can know when it is picked up next.

    Yes, it is normal, but if it is extreme (like your Pencil discharging 60-70% while idle through the day) then there may be another issue.
