The 3 pin charger may not be putting out the power it should. An iPhone 4 should charge (0-100%) in about just over 2 hours to 3 hours.

So you mean that I'm better off using the 2pin? Does it the time it takes to charge seem to be abnormally fast?
In contrast, does the time taken by the 3pin seem to be abnormally slow?
Should I get another 3pin charger for my iPhone 4, or is it OK if I continue charging it with my 2pin?
Thanks for your help.

A charging time of about an hour and a half to go from 10-100% doesn't seem to be unreasonable. My figures are based on using the iPhone charger. Using an iPad charger will charge the battery quicker, but I have not done any time testing using my iPad charger. This is because the iPad charger can put out 2.1 amps as opposed to the iPhone charger that puts out 1 amp. Using a charger that puts out more amps than required shouldn't hurt your iPhone since the iPhone should limit the amount of amps it draws.
5 hours to charge your iPhone seems slow. Does the 3 pin charger say it outputs 5v, 1 amp?
