Charging time for ipad2

Have had ipad connected for about 6 hours and only up to 42% charged.
Using cable with plug into wall socket for this. Am I doing something wrong? Should it take this long?

Are you using the original charger? Have you tried a different charger? Tried restarting it?

If all else fails, the battery is probably dying. Those batteries only last 2-3 years with regular use.

Thanks for getting back to me. Brought ipad home today after having had lcd and digitizer replaced. Cable purchased today as well. Will check with service provider tomorrow and have battery checked.

If you're using a third party charger, it's possible that it isn't delivering as much power as the genuine charger - hence a longer charge time.

Thanks again.

The iPad needs a 10W or 12W charger otherwise it charges glacially slowly. Standard USB chargers are only 5W.

Thanks for this - I think the charger I was using was a 5w - supplied with ipad mini.
