    Are you using the iPad charger into the wall, or trying to charge from an iPod charger or from the USB port on a PC?

    Mine charges just as quick as my first iPad, that is as long as I'm using the included wall charger.

    Think it takes somewhere between 3 and 4 hours for mine to charge. Seems slow compared to my laptop but considering how long a charge lasts not that bad.

    I wonder if my cable is defective. I've been charging it since noon today and it's now 10pm and it's not even done charging! There's no way it's this slow to charge.

    Yea, you definitely have an issue. From completely dead to fully charged in around 3 hrs max.

    Somebody else posted something similar here. They went to Apple store and they replaced their charger and that resolved the problem. Unfortunately you probably have a bad charger.

    As others have said, likely bad charger.
    Mine takes no more than 3-4 hours from nearly empty to full charge.

    Are you using the iPad while charging?

    A full charge can take up to 11h, when the iPad is on and getting used the whole time.
