My nexus 7 has been charging extremely slow the past few days whether it's charging over ac or USB. Its gotten to the point that when charging and browsing the web at the same time, I lose battery charge still. Stand alone battery life is unaffected how ever. So my question is, does this happen to anyone else? Or is my device defective

Make sure yall are using the official charging cord AND charging block. The N7 is very picky and will only like the one it came with. The charger block has a higher amp then most charger blocks 0-100% should take 3 hours.

You must use the supplied charger. Tablets need a higher charging amperage. The combination of the supplied charger and the supplied cord are essential.

Is there really a difference with the cord? I don't see how that would matter just the charging block.

I am using the original Asus charger and a longer 3rd party cable. I got the cable from Monoprice, it's the one with a ferrite on it their part# 5458. I will assume a longer version might work as well. Average charge time is about 3 hours.
