    What are you using to charge it with? If you are using your USB port, it will charge slowly, that's normal. If your using a iPhone charger it is also slow. For faster charging use the iPad charger.

    still having problems

    I use my normal 10watt charger the one that came with the ipad connected to a normal wall socket, and it charges perfectly, its just that it misbehaves when it gets below about 30%, am beginning to think its a hardware problem. Thanks for ur reply

    Try to let it run down until it shuts off, and then recharge, this is suppose to reset the battery meter per Apple. Might be the problem? Can't hurt, and it just might fix it.

    Also, try a reset. Close all apps then - Hold down the HOME, bottom button, and the SLEEP, top button, for about 10 seconds until the Apple icon appears, then release buttons. Allow it to reboot, it may take a few minutes, don't panic like I did, wait for it to reboot. Cures many weird problems on iOS devices.

    Regarding charging via a USB port, if you download a utility from Asus called AiCharger, it will charge your iPad through any USB port at full power.

    This software AiCharger only works with certain Asus motherboards, and seems to cause all kinds of other problems, crashing computer regularly with BSOD, which many people have a very hard time recovering from.

    My advice, don't even try to use it, even if you have a motherboard that supports it.

    I'm using it on three computers, none of which have an asus motherboard, haven't had one problem or crash.

    Once it shuts down on its own, I plugged it in and it booted at 2% from then it was smooth sailing to 100%
