    I was in a bus with heavy traffic, so I pulled out Meteor Blitz and Mirror's Edge for 4 hours, draining the battery to 81%. When I plugged it into the wall with the included 10W wall charger and began surfing the web.It took about an hour to get the battery up to 90%, but then the charging sped up exponentially, taking about 15 minutes to charge the last 10%. Does this mean that my battery is functioning abnormally, or is this something that just happens to iPads? The display brightness was set to automatic (probably about 60%), WiFi was off, 3G was on and connected, and Bluetooth was on.

    Probably a glitch, make sure you've calibrated the battery. From what I know, it should take 3 hours for 0-80% then a hour or two to do the final bit. From my experience its about a 10% decrease per hour of usage.

    I dint even have the percentage on anymore, to many worries then.

    haha, I like to see it, then I can sorta judge how good I'm doing on battery power.
