    It took my iPad 4 hours to go from 17% charge to 100%.:eek:
    Is that typical?

    That's absolutely normal as the iPad's battery is high capacity. It's going to take awhile, especially when you're using a USB port and not the power brick.

    tl;dr yes it is normal.

    Ok, but I was using the supplied power brick.

    I just use it for the whole day and charge it over night. So I am not really sure how long it takes.

    Too damn long when plugged into my computer (with high power USB ports).

    In fact, this might be my biggest complaint. I love the battery life though, go figure...

    Yeah, I agree!
    I won't even try the USB ports anymore.
    I guess I am just used to my iPhone charging back up so quickly.

    I ran my iPad battery down to 0 last night, plugged it in to the provided wall charge, battery charged to 78% in 2h20m. I suspect the iPad would be fully charge in about 4 hours.

    On the bright side, though, once the iPad starts getting broken in and you're not spending every waking second with it :p, you probably won't have to charge it every day and will get by with only charging it a couple of nights a week.
