    Charge rate is super slow sometimes?

    I have notice when my iPad gets run down it takes forever to fully charge back up. A couple weeks after I got it I ran it down till it shut off. I plugged it in that night and the next morning it was at only like 66% after 6+ hrs. The next time I ran it down it did the same thing. This last time it only went down to 10% before I could charge it and 7 hours later it was at 77%. Normally I plug in before I go to bed 20-35% and by miring it is at 100%. Is there some reason for this?

    Are you using the 10 watt stand alone charger or are you plugging it into your computer? The preferred (and quickest) method is with the charger. It also helps if you power down your iPad after you plug in the charger.

    An iPhone charger will take hours to charge, the iPad charger will take a little under an hour. Make sure your using the right one.

    Apple says that the "average" life of the battery which is defined by holding 80% of its original charge is 1000 cycles. If you charged your iPad battery every day, this would be almost 3 years!

    yes I am using the supplied 10w wall charger all the time. So the difference is not the charger. I know the computer is a trickle charger.

    When I do charge it at nite, I make sure it is off so that is not any different. It is just strange seems that if I go under 10% it goes into super slow charge mode of some kind?

    The life is fine I don't have any issue with that as long as I manage it, you know brightness or bluetooth that kind of stuff.

    My default charger seems to take a while to charge too. The new Griffin Poweblock for iPads seem to get good reviews.
    The Fastest (and Slowest) Way to Charge an iPad
    According to the chart it should take 3 hours to get to 80%.

    I bought an I.sound stand - and it seems to charge rapidly too. Works with the iPad 1 and 2 (mostly - takes a little more finesse to get the iPad 2 in the dock. )

    I had an issue with my charger, it seemed to be stuck in the trickle charge mode. It enters trickle charge from around 80% up to 100%. I took the charger and iPad to my local apple store and the charger was exchanged even though they had no chargers in stock, and had to open a brand new ipad2 so that I was not inconvenienced. That is great customer service.
