I noticed my IPad 3 takes at least 6 hours to charge completely! Is anyone else having problems with their iPad charging slowly?
Also make sure you do not have a bunch of applications opened while you're charging. A full restore may help, and it'll bring it back to factory state. Make sure you backup everything first.I am updated to the current iOS. I charge on a wall socket and I am in NY. I did not try to restore, I will try that
Definitely restoring as new is a good tip for this issue. Although I'm now thinking it may be an issue in the iPad itself. But I haven't heard of any problems with the iPad 3 as of yet.Personally, I would make sure apps aren't in the background and try a hard reset before doing a restore.
Press and hold home & sleep button until you see the Apple logo.
If that doesn't seem to fix it and you do a restore, Restore as new first & see if that helps.
I agree, my iPad 3 knocks on the door at 6 hours of charging.Yep. Took 5 hours and 43 minutes to do a full charge from 0% to 100% with the screen mostly off (except for a few seconds every so often to check how far along it was). Full 10w charge. I've never seen an iPad 3 charge faster than that.
