    I have two I pad 3's and one is charging extremely slow so while researching the problem I found this site.
    I have tried 4 10 watt chargers and several new cables with all charging slow. Can anyone help?

    Welcome aboard...

    Are you trying different wall outlets or USB ports when charging?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Are you charging directly from a power outlet? Try changing the outlet and see if this makes a difference.
    Charging from a PC/mac is not really recommended as it is so slow and will only do a trickle charge.
