    Default ipad air: how long does it take to fully charge to 100%?

    I bought a refurbished ipad air (I know, I shouldn't of)
    16gb. What is the normal time from zero percent to 100% that it takes to fully charge?

    The typical answer you'll find online is 3 to 4 hours. Still, it depends on the battery status / charging cycles used.

    It also depends on the charger, whether it is apple's or third party

    Are you using the 10 watt power adapter/charger or 5 watt power adapter/charger?

    I think the iPad proprietary charger is 15 watts. So anything less is going to be slow. Like in my case, I use a Chinese replacement charger with 10 watts that take 10 hours to fully charge. So always try to get original charger from Apple.

    I usually charge it overnight, I use mi Air for class, reading and doing some word and excel stuff. I charge it about 2 times per week, sometimes 3. But it usually takes about 3-4 hours from 15% to 100% with the original Apple charger.
