    now it jumps to 100% for a total 226mins = 3hrs and 46mins from 14% to 100%

    assuming from 0 to 100 is 4hrs?

    I charged mine fully for the first time this morning from about 3% remaining. It took 3 hours to fully charge. I also had my USB adapter plugged straight into a surge protector. Maybe the MacBook cord is affecting it some? I don't really see why it would though...

    Just charge it overnight while you you are asleep. That's what I do with my phone and iPod.

    That sounds about right. 4 hours charging for a ~10 hour battery life really isn't bad.

    That's fine, it's normal for 3-5 hours. We're talking about two large batteries strapped that works for 10-12 hours straight.

    It also takes 8-10 hours to charge it via USB, so use the wall charger or charge it overnight when you're sleeping.
