    Was charging with 3rd party accessory fast before? If it was then that's odd - if it was always slow - perhaps try a more powerful apple charger? (e.g. 10W one?)

    How long have they had the iPad 3? It might be that the battery isn't in as good condition.

    iPad 3 is quite power hungry due to the retina screen and older chipset; I had to get the 10W wall charger just to do it faster.

    The iPad seems like it takes forever to charge. What you're seeing is normal.

    My friend owned the iPad for 5 years and she lost the charging cable and USB power adapter on the 3rd year owning it

    6 hours seems fine to me, the iPad 3 have a huge 11560 mAh battery, the largest of any iPads (even the Pro).

    You mention 3rd party. Try official iPad charger.
