Has anyone else experienced the iPad battery taking hours to charge? (charging over night and only 86% charged)..........rubbish.

iPad, iOS 5.1.1

    How are you charging it? Plugged into the wall or into your computer? The iPad likes its power and the best way to charge it is with the supplied brick plugged into the wall. It will charge when plugged into USB, but much slower than normal since it really only trickle charges on USB.


    Also, an iPad 3 takes about 6 hours to fully charge as compared to the 4ish hours of the 2.
