As the title mentioned, when the battery left below 20%. It took more than 20 hours for me to fully charge the battery which is impossible for me to use it every day.
But sometimes, it took only around 4 hours to fully charge it which happens seldomly.
So, I think that it is a software problem more to a hardware problem.
And it happened since day 1 I purchase the machine.
Can someone recommend me?
Help is very much appreciated and thank you

Thanks for your help.
I'm using the original charger which comes with the tablet.
May I know what is OTA?
I had tried to find update from the tablet and it state that the firmware is up-to-date.
Where can I download the OTA2 ?
Thank you for your help.

"Over-the-air programming (OTA) refers to various methods of distributing new software updates or configuration settings to devices like cellphones and set-top boxes. In the mobile content world these include over-the-air service provisioning (OTASP), over-the-air provisioning (OTAP) or over-the-air parameter administration (OTAPA), or provisioning handsets with the necessary settings with which to access services such as WAP or MMS. Some phones with this capability are labeled as being "OTA capable."
This means that wireless mechanisms are used to send data or update packages.
The following link provides a step-by-step guide on how to get these updates.
Hope the above helped!

Sure, turning off the slate while charging will make the process a lot faster.
Turn off the slate when not in use too, if you make it sleep (a short power button press) and have the keyboard folio case (a must have, in my humble opinion!) wait at least ten seconds and make sure it will not turn on again when using the optical trackpoint and keyboard before closing it.

This is the kind of stuff that kills me and ultimately, can be not only a dealer breaker, but gives Android tablets a really bad name.
I HATE using my company issued iPad. I am not an advocate for it, but after using it, I can see why the loyalty to that product is so high...Easy to use, very little issues or problems really with just about anything.
I made a post later up top about the fact I had not used my TPT for about 5 weeks. I power it completely off in the keyboard case and when I went to turn it on, 100% completely dead.
1st, why would it drain power when it is completely off? And yes, it was turned completely off, a function I have performed numerous times.
2nd, when I went to start charging it, with the supplied power adapter, it literally was charging 2% after 1 hour!! 2%? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
And then I read that if you buy ANOTHER accessory for it to make it actually do what it should do out the box, which is to say, charge at a normal rate, it will charge like it should? Really?
So if I buy a brand new bicycle, should I have to buy the chain separately to make it peddle correctly?
This is why manufacturers on this platform, Android, trying to compete outside of the Apple dominated market, lose, fail miserably.
I understood from a software perspective, Google is at fault on many issues, and why in the end, they will NEVER catch up to Apple in the tablet universe.
But hardware for it? Lenovo who targets business users like me? I cannot even take this tablet with me for a 2 day trip because it will be unusable having to take TWENTY hours to charge?
Is anyone from Lenovo paying attention? You make the best laptops and PC hardware on the market, have a niche and almost cult like following, and when your loyal customers make a transition to tablets, where, lets face it, all business will be in the next 3-5 years, you have a product that takes TWENTY HOURS to charge?
This to me is mind blowing, and really, so disheartening.
