Gopro 6 takes 4 hours + to charge

Hi,

 

I got the new Gopro 6 for Christmas. I have charged it in total twice

 

Both times it has taken more than 4 hours to fully charge when using a 5V 1A wall socket plug.

 

Any ideas why?

You're going to want at least a 2.1A charger. I use the GoPro Supercharger (5.1V 3A) and GoPro Dual Battery Charger and depleated batteries charge to full capacity in about 2 hours.

I was mainly asking as wanted to know if its a fault or common for others.

As the manual says around 2 hours
