    That's a long time, takes about 6hrs from 3% to 100% for me on original charger and the generic wall outlet to USB.

    6 hours? Mine takes about 3-4 hours from 0-100%...

    @Kronikpuff
    Try another charger. If this doesn't help to increase the charging time, you'll have to visit an apple store, because this isn't normal ;)

    Apple will gladly sell you the 10 watt charger that the iPad comes with separately. Best Buy or an Apple store or online.

    sometimes (on my mac at least) if the magsafe isn't plugged in correctly, or the power cable is not connected correctly, you will get very little charge if anything.
