Why not just use the charger that came with the iPad, it will charge much faster that way, than by connecting it to the USB port of the computer.Originally Posted by healer
This happened with me also. I would say, this link would be helpful to you.

It takes less than $2.00 worth of electricity to charge an iPad for an entire year. There's no need to disconnect the charger as soon as it's fully charged, it's perfectly safe to leave it plugged in indefinitely. You can monitor the charge by periodically looking at the charge percentage indicator at the top of the screen.Originally Posted by healer

I've used my iPad 1 heavily for most of the more than 2.5 years and it still gets at least 10 hours from a full charge. That's even after my negligent battery use. (I often use my iPads till they auto-shut down at 2%.)
I've never been careful about battery use; I always figured I'd use my devices at my convenience, and if the battery ended up needing replacing, I'd replace it. So far, every single iDevice I've had has delivered outstanding battery performance and battery life, unlike the battery in my Samsung Android phablet, which is losing its charge more quickly after a year's use. (I have iPad 1, 2 and 4, and various iPhones and iPods, and have been equally hard on all their batteries.)
No problem, have gotten in trouble at work (AppleCare) a few times for recommending it...even though it works perfectly.
