    How long is it suppose to take to fully charge an iPad 3? Mine literally takes 24 hours, but I also let it run out to 20% battery life. Is that normal charge time?

    It does take quite some time to fully charge it. A LOT of battery(ies) in there to juice up. But a full 24 hours does seem a bit long. I drained mine to 5% last night. Plugged it in and left it. Was 100% when I looked this morning around 8am.

    I plug mine directly into a wall plug and it recharges from approximately 30 percent to 100 in approx. 2 hours.

    If you're using a wall charger 24 hours sounds way too much. I generally can go from zero (letting it fully discharge once a month) to 100% (and a bit extra for the iPad 3) in around 9 hours.

    Yes, I've learned, it charges way faster when plugged directly into the wall. I have mine plugged into a power strip with five slots in it. My iPhone is plugged into it too. Over night I can always get to 100% on both the iPad 3 and the iPhone. I'm usually charging the iPad 3 from 40, 50 or 60% though.

    One night I didn't Plug my iPad 3 in like I usually do and when I got up in the morning it was at 63%. I plugged it directly into the wall and within an hour and 1/2 it got up to 100%.

    Wall plug is the fastest way! Oh yeah, and use the original USB and plug that came with the iPad 3. If you use the iPhone plug, I don't think you'll get a fast charge and the plug will get hot. The iPad 3 uses a lot of power and the iPhone plug does not provide that power.

    I can charge from 0% to 100% overnight (7 to 8 hours). Of course this is plugged into AC power with the stock power adapter it comes with.
