Are you using the stock charger that came w/the phone?

Also,if you're waiting for the last 5% or so until it reaches 100%,I wouldn't count that additional time as "waiting to charge".

As I understand it,this 5% or so is basically a safety buffer/zone,built in to most phones,to prevent overcharging,& lessen the chance of damaging the phone or creating a potential safety hazard.
