    Though I continue to be highly impressed by my pro, the Apple keyboard, and the pencil, a small problem has cropped up with the pencil. Every so often it will stop working. The reason? The small white nib at the end has unscrewed itself to the point that it has disabled the pencil.

    Does anyone else notice this? Maybe it is due somehow to the way I hold it when I write---???

    Do you turn the Pencil in your hand while using it?

    Happened once, when I first started using it. Tightened it a bit and it hasn't happened since.

    Just an update. I have discovered that the pencil charges much faster when plugged in to the iPad Pro than when plugged into the wall charger. Go figger!

    I've noticed that myself. Takes the sting out of having misplaced the little lightning charge adaptor. Also missing the cap. Knew this was going to happen, but the Pencil still works great, so I'll survive. :rolleyes:

    I noticed that as well with my iPhone charger. How ever with a 12w apple charger it is faster. Also purchased a holder/dock from
    Apple Pencil Charging Dock
    It also has a place for the cap

    I can imagine Apple deciding to offer replacement caps for a typically high price such as $29.95.

    How well do these work? I've been tempted to get one. Plugging it in to the side of the iPad Pro is just so awkward.

    So far so good. Works great. I have been using a 12w charger.
