    How long does it to charge ipad3? Do I have a problem?

    Was wondering. iPhone 4 charges upto 100% in few hours. iPad 3 charges 7-8% per hour. So from 0 to 100% takes 14 hours to charge the battery. Is this normal?

    Device has been in use for about 2 months.

    Like right now as typing this and plugged into wall, charge dropping (3% so far). So in conclusion wifi connection taking more power then the wall outlet can provide?

    Someone please give me answer before I complain to store that sold me this. Or is this normal?

    Kinda understandable as if battery life 10 hrs and 14 hrs to charge it makes exatly hrs in a day.

    Are you using the charger that came with your iPad or your iPhone charger? An iPhone charger will take a long time to charge an iPad and your iPad may lose charge if you try to use it at the same time.

    If you are using the iPad charger, 14 hours is too long for a normal full charge. In this case, you may want to have it checked out at an Apple store as it's still under warranty.

    Yeah, make sure you are using the charger block that came with your ipad(should be a 10 watt charger, might not say iPad on it though). Mine takes about 5 hours to charge from flat to 100%. I have a 3 that is a little over 2 months old. My iPad 2 was faster to charge at about 3 hours.
    My 3, I just use throughout the day and overnight charge it. That way it's long charge doesn't cause me grief.

    The iPad will charge very slowly if connected to the USB socket on a computer. Most USB sockets do not supply enough power to do more than trickle charge an iPad while it's turned off.

    Yeah, but says that NOT charging at all. Replacing the battery icon on top... ITunes works ok so not wire. And also iPhone works + charges.

    Even though it says not charging, it's actually charging very slowly.

    Ok. Thought that it could be related to long charging time via wall plug. As above mentioned take 5 hrs to charge. This take 14 hrs. Shall call to shop that bought this from.

    Keep in mind the major differences in the batteries between the iPhone 4, iPad 2 and iPad 3.

    iPhone 4 Battery: 5.25 Wh (1,420 mAh)
    iPad 2 Battery: 25 Wh (6,579 mAh)
    iPad 3 Battery: 42.5 Wh (11,560 mAh)

    The larger the battery, the longer it will take to charge.

    Try changing the cable from the charger to the USB. I had a similar problem, and changing my cable helped.
