    Which iPad and OS? Are you charging via a wall charger or via USB? Also are you charging via the official cable?
    All these can make a difference. Mine never takes that long even from a totally dead battery. I use official cable to a wall charger.

    As a matter of fact I just plugged it in. It's completely dead. Let me see how long it takes via wall charger for an iPad 3 Retina starting from 6:00 am.

    Thank you for reminding me to charge it!!!!!

    I am curious as well, I had an iPad 3 but never charged it from the single digit mark. If i am not mistaken the iPad 3 has a bigger battery capacity than other iPad made.

    I usually charge mine overnight. You have to use the brick that came with the iPad. If you use the iPhone one it takes forever

    OK here it is. It was totally dead at 6:00 am. So not quite six hours.
    It's an iPad 3 Retina on 8.1.2.

    It should definitely not take 12 hours to charge

    The OP have not mentioned if he or she was using the official charger or third party chargers. Perhaps it also makes the difference?

    My iPad 2 using a third party charger usually takes about 8 hours, so I usually just charge it overnight
