    Hello, I am looking for a braided lighting cable (like those excellent ones from Anker) that connects an Apple Pencil to an iPad PRO 12.9 2017.

    Do most people usually charge the pencil from the iPad PRO or via usb charger? I heard that the former is much faster. In the latter case, how about the TechMatte Apple Pencil Lightning Cable Charging Adapter for iPad Pro Female to Female Connector (.75 Inches)?

    I think one problem with these adapters and cables is that they are not apple certified.

    Any good recommendation appreciated. Thanks.

    I use the iPP10.5. Just plug the Apple Pencil in the lightning connector and it is charged in a minute or two.

    I’m not understanding why you want a cable. It plugs right in, male pencil to female iPad.

    I worry that it may break by accident.
