    I received an Apple Pencil a few days ago, paired it, and all was fine. About two days ago I got a battery warning but didn't bother charging the pencil because I wasn't using it.

    Yesterday I went to use it and of course it was dead. I plugged it into the bottom of the iPad and let it charge for a few minutes. After unplugging it, the damned thing would not keep a connection. The Bluetooth symbol would just go grey.

    I thought it was a pairing issue, so I told the iPad to forget the device. Now it won't pair at all.

    I even did a software restore on the iPad to see if that was the issue.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Have you tried charging the Pencil for a couple of hours using a wall charger?

    Did you try fully charging it with the USB adapter?

    Ship it to me and I'll see what the issue is.

    I've left it plugged into the iPad as well as to a computer for quite a long time. I'll try with the wall charger and see if that makes a difference.

    Ok. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid you may have a defective Pencil, and will need to contact Apple.
