    Anyone know why? Its been 9hrs now and only went from 15% to 77%, are you serious? A ten year old laptop charges faster than this.

    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?

    Use it all day, charge it while you sleep.

    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.
