    Hello all, is it just me or does the iPad 2 take an extremely long time to charge? I have am iPhone 4, it charges very quickly. The iPad, which I just bought 3 days ago, is taking hours to charge. Is this normal? Amy way to speed this up? Plugged into the wall charger, I read how slow they charge from your pc/Mac. Thanks

    Well, it's true that compared to an iPhone the iPad takes a long time to charge, but think about the battery life. The iPad lasts for 10 hours with that big bright screen and dual core processor- it has a much higher capacity battery and takes proportionally more time to recharge.

    Good point, just making sure it wasn't an isolated issue. Thanks!

    Hi Manic9803 - welcome to the forum! :)

    Well, several hours or more is likely depending on the current level of your charge - of course, make sure that you use the wall charger that came w/ the iPad - this puts out 10 W of power (i.e. 5v x 2amps approximately) - lesser output chargers (e.g. iPod) and computer USB ports will not provide an acceptable charge rate (if any). If you need more reassurance, check out this DISCUSSION to see if your charge time approaches the comments made there - good luck!
