    I have original Ipad and IPad3. Original takes approx 3 hours to charge from 10% remaining and once charged can be used all day and only drops down to approx 25% - 30%

    The IPad3 on average is taking between 14 - 16 hours to charge and only has a life of approx 3 hours max.

    I make sure that there are no apps running in background. I am using the correct 10V charger and cable

    I would be interested to hear if anyone else has this problem.

    I have been in touch with Apple but the person dealing with me is on hols for a few days

    But my ipad 3 charges from 5% to 100% in 5hrs and the charge stands for 7-8hrs on continuous usage wifi on.

    Something wrong here. The New iPad definitely drains faster than the original iPad - and takes longer to charge - but you should be getting way more than 3 hours use out of it. Try letting your new iPad run down completely - literally, until it shuts itself down - then charge it overnight; this made a big difference to our new iPads.

    Charging our iPads takes around 4-5 hours; are you sure you're not using an iPod/iPhone charger by mistake?

    I have let it drain completely 3 times and the quickest re charge was 14 hours with 2 1/2 usage. I am definitely using correct correct charger as I was guided by Apple telephone support to make sure.

    Apple have decided to take the unit back for testing, it will either be repaired or replaced. Thanks for help
