    Had my iPad Air 2 since launch day and suddenly in the last couple of weeks it's taking A long time to charge, today had on charge since 8am and only 92% charged. I have closed all apps before charging and it makes no difference. Anyone know why it would suddenly start doing this as it was fine until recently.

    Running 9.2 PB if that's any help if anyone else has been having this issue.

    I had the same issue, then it started rapidly discharging. Finally the screen started separating from the body. I took it to the apple store and they said the battery was swelling and this was a known issue with he iPad Air2.

    Are you using the Air 2 charger and not an iPhone charger?

    Yes have tried a different iPad charger and charged it quicker unless the charger isn't working properly

    The charger you're having slow charging issues with-is it the genuine/original charger that came with the iPad?

    If it is and you're not getting the issue with other chargers, then you've confirmed that the fault lies with that charger.
