    Hello

    We have been using our ipad3 since opening the box on 16th morning and it was charged just over 90%. It now showing about 16% so I have had it on charge now for about 2 hours and its only up to 25%. Is this normal ? Or does a first charge take a long time ?

    Thanks

    What I'm reading on the Interwebz is that, because the battery is so much bigger, it's going to take longer to charge.

    Since I charge over night, that doesn't affect me. But you just may want to keep that in mind - no "quick charging" for a little bit before you run out the door...

    My iPad 2 takes over 6 hours to fully charge. This is normal behavior. No quick charges with iPad batteries.

    I did some experimenting. If you use a non-iPad charger, it will take forever to charge this model. Normal charging is going to take almost twice the time the iPad 2 needed. For those really worried, the larger battery and retina screen are going to add a dime to your electric bill.:)

    Hey guys,

    The new iPad indeed is not that fast in charging the battery. I created a post which may be of help to charge it extra fast:

    I hope it will be of help to anyone! If you have any feedback, please comment :)

    Regards,

    John.
