    Hey,
    recently (a couple of weeks?), an iPad Air and an iPad 4 that are charged on the same charger have been charging really slowly.. I tried changing the charger and the cable but it didn't work. I didn't change the socket base as I don't have another base for my country. Any idea to what might be the issue? The Charging Current on Battery Life is negative too sometimes..

    Thanks,
    Aurora

    I think it means the battery is on the way out. My iPad3 had the same issue, it would get slower and slower to charge and towards the end if I was using a CPU intensive app while on charge the battery would still discharge.

    I agree and it is likely time to replace the battery or the device.

    Hmm, after changing the charger plug with a plug from a Powerbook, it's charging *much* faster!
