no idea how long it took in all it may well have been less than 3 hours but it was a lot faster than plugging into the mains at home .
i am going to leave it run down to 5% today and then charge from there while plugged into my pc .
i have a feeling that the charge unit is faulty and not the lead .
Also, don't forget, Mains charges at 1000mA. USB 3.0 at 900mA and USB 2.0 at 500mA, so it should take twice as long charging from a USB 2 port than mains...
I have a strong suspicion its the cable
