The battery is more powerful which is why it takes longer to charge - mine takes 5.5 to 6 hours to charge from empty to 100%, and it will possibly take longer if you are using it whilst charging.

So there's no solution for that? So its normal? Any suggestion so that maybe it may take shorter time to charge

Apple don't currently do a more powerful charger for it - you could charge it overnight

Based on what other people have posted on here about their charging times, my 5.5 to 6 hours is about as good as it gets - some people have reported longer times as they continue to use the iPad whilst charging it.

I just charge it overnight. You're not going to use it when you're sleep.

The quickest way (and really the only way) to charge your iPad is with the included 10W USB Power Adapter. iPad will also charge, although more slowly, when attached to a computer with a high-power USB port (many recent Mac computers) or with an iPhone Power Adapter (5W). When attached to a computer via a standard USB port (most PCs or older Mac computers) iPad will charge very slowly (but iPad indicates not charging). Make sure your computer is on while charging iPad via USB. If iPad is connected to a computer that’s turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, the iPad battery will continue to drain.
Apple recommends that once a month you let the iPad fully discharge & then recharge to 100%.
How to Calibrate Your Mac, iPhone, or iPad Battery
At this link http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/galaxy-tab-android-tablet,3014-11.html , tests show that the iPad 2 battery (25 watt-hours) will charge to 90% in 3 hours 1 minute. It will charge to 100% in 4 hours 2 minutes. The new iPad has a larger capacity battery (42 watt-hours), so using the 10W charger will obviously take longer. If you are using your iPad while charging, it will take even longer. It's best to turn your new iPad OFF and charge over night.
