    I can't remember how long it took my 3rd gen to charge, but I know it was like forever because of the mahoooosive battery.

    iOS devices don't have region specific internal power circuitry.

    Was that "12W' charger the original Apple charger?

    Try going through several charge-uncharge circuits, trying another charger and doing a hard reset (as a last resort, after backing up and making sure you don't mind iOS 7).

    Ive just bought an Ipad 4 16gb. It came with only 4% charge. I have plugged into the wall socket charger 12w, it has taken 30 hours to reach 100% !!!
    Ill try a reset and let ya know how it behaves.
