If you cant find a reason to buy, then likely its the reason that you wont have a purpose for it...

I wanted to get it. In fact I was on my way to get it. Until I open the Apple Store app and read so much negative reviews regarding the battery problem.

Anyone of u guys experience any charging or battery issues after having it for over 6 months?

I guess if most usage does not involve drawing, scribbling or taking notes, the Pencil is rather of no use.

Saw people posting the battery will last around 5~6 hours of continuous usage. With that small body frame, I guess it is good enough.

I bought one 2 weeks back, have it full charge, used for only a few times like less than 45 mins. Left it in the Leather Sleeve for a week+. Last night check still have 26%. Poke it in the ipad, around 2~4mins, the battery life shows around 60%. Thus I guess it is quite good enough for a simple user like me. Whether if the tip spoils easily or battery cannot charge up, can only update again 6 months later.

Saw many alternatives to Apple pencil. Did anyone got those and try?

I sketches and take notes during conferences/meetings. So it is pretty worth it for me.

I have bought the Apple Pencil via the refurbished online store for the US. And you can use a freight forwarder like ezbuy to ship it to SG.
