    Default How long does yours take to charge?

    Mine took about 3 hours to charge from 20-100. Is that abnormally long?

    3 hours from 20 to 100 does sound like a long time. The lightening chargers in these are to speed up charge time. If you were using the phone while on the charger then that makes sense. Or if you're using a different charger or charging from a computer. Otherwise I can get a full charge in about an hour and a half. Completely dead in just over 2.

    Using the stock charger/cable and doing nothing on the phone. A couple of notifications popped up though.

    Use an iPad charger instead. The iPhone one takes longer

    Charging in Airplane Mode should shorten the charging time considerably.

    I use the iPad charger & it takes about 90min to go from 10ish to a fully charge on my 6s plus & a little less on my 6s.

    3 hours is not unusual. It may indicate a poor signal or interference. It takes my 6s Plus about 90 to 120 minutes.

    Wow...how in the hell? 90 minutes? Do you turn it off or keep it in airplane mode while charging?

    Nope. I do have it plugged into a surge protector? I have no idea why ours would vary. Um... I have Siri disabled, reduce motion is on, handoff is off, background refresh is on for only like 4 apps, I'm on iOS beta 9.1 version 3. That's about all I know right now...

    I use the iPad brick and a wire I received from a company to review which is apparently also capable of charging faster. I've gone from 0-50% in about 35 minutes, the same in about 20 minutes if I leave it in airplane mode.

    Mine takes about 2:50 hours from 0 to 100% but I've noticed that charging from 40 to 100 takes about two hours. I always charge my phone while powered on. Do you think it is normal? I'm using its original charger and lightning. While charging it's always connected to wifi and 4G or 3G but I try not to use it while charging.

    I use a anker 2amp car charger and while streaming Spotify I usually see a 1% per minute charge. It's pretty fast if I'm not using Spotify.
