    I have the original iPad and as of late it's been acting very buggy and slow. My biggest complaint is that it's taking forever to charge. Yesterday I drained it to zero to see just how long it would take for a full charge and it was over 8 hours. Anyone else having problems like this or know of a remedy? Thanks.

    Are you charging the iPad via the wall adapter that came with it? People have accidentally used the iPhone wall adapter and saw double the charge time as the iPhone wall charger provides less power...

    Actually, I was using the iPhone charger. I didn't realize that they weren't interchangeable, a little naive of me I suppose. Thanks for the replies.

    They are interchangeable, but iPhone uses 5W, iPad 10W. If you were going to use just one charger, go with iPad because it automatically adapts when charging iPhone.
