pen is not working without charge cord

Hello I recently acquired an HUION KAMVAS GT-221 pro, I received a pair of pens,  I  have tried to use both pens  on the display after installed the drivers, and they (the pens) did not work. if i leave the pens connected, both pens works with wire normally. I tried to charge both, the  indicators on both pens keep on   white color and  do not work without charge cable.

what should i do?

    Does the pen work without a driver installed?
