Just bought a s6 lite with the spen. I have the galaxy ultra and noticed that my spen on the s6 lite doesn't display the battery or air gestures. I click on air gestures and it says connect a spen. The spen it came with works but not sure if that's normal. All the stuff I look at shows you can disconnect the spen it comes with to "reset" it. But I can't since the s6 lite says there is no s pen connected. Not sure if this is a known issue or normal. I have rest the tablet and even exchanged it for a new one and still the same problem. I don't know what I am doing wrong. Any help is welcomed thanks

@user3UMj0fMIfd That is to be expected since the Tab S6 Lite's S Pen does not have bluetooth. So there are no air gestures and no battery. It is like the pre-Note 9 S Pen.

The S-Pen lite does not support, or come with an S-Pen with Bluetooth functionality. 

I that is important to you, your only option would be the $99 S-Pen Pro which is USB charged.
