    Say, from 5% or 10% ---> 100%

    How long does it take?

    Mine seems to take several hours.


    I live in US, thus 110V.

    Three to four hours for mine. That's with the supplied charger. I am also in the US.

    Less than 7 hours, I typically plug it in when I go to sleep. I usually charge once every 3 days or so. In the times I've done in day, rarely, I'm thinking about 2-3 hours.

    Remember it's only a 10 watt charger. Designed to to charge it nice and slow to prolong battery life. Mine has charged from auto shutdown at 0% to 100% in a few hours.

    Actually a higher wattage charger would not decrees the charging time since this is determined by the on board battery monitoring circuitry.;) There is no such thing as a faster charger for lit-ion's, although you can get/use a slower lower wattage charger.

    Spot on answer... and you even managed to address the nut jobs who think using the iPad charger with the iPhone will somehow damage their iPhone batteries.

    Using the supplied charger, probably 4hrs or so from 10% and that's if I leave it alone.

    With my chargepod, definitely longer. Maybe six and change.

    Just guesstimates though.
