    Ensure you're using the original charging cable. I know mine takes a long time (12hrs) to completely charge. Just plug it in at night when you go to bed and you're set. :)

    ^Original cable (or appropriate replacement) and original charger (or appropriate replacement). Some chargers don't push enough current.

    FWIW, the stock charging block's output is 5 volts, 2 amps

    I totally agree with this. If I use the charger that came with my phone to charge my nexus 7 it will actually continue to die while I use it. The charges that came with it is the only one powerful enough to charge it while in use.
