Default Does it take a long time to charge the Wifi-version?

I just got this tablet (Wifi version) on Sunday. I noticed that charging this device takes longer than any other tablets I owned (Asus, Nexus, Samsung, etc.).

Just today, the tablet is at 11%. Plugged it in at 7:30 PM and at 8:48 PM (1 hour 15 minutes later), it's only at 20%.

Is this normal? Just want to check if my device is defective, the charger is defective, or just normal operation.

It's normal with the Wifi tab..It takes mine about 6 hours for a full charge..

Thanks for the info!

I also found out the cable I use is bad. I used to charge with the original cable, but switch to another one that is longer. I tested the cable with USB Meter and I only get 0.67A output. With the original cable and another 3rd party cable, I got 1.67A output. Oopps..

EDIT: For those who doesn't know what a USB meter is, this is what I have:
