Had this one for a while, think it's official, works like a treat, i've got it linked to an ipad charger, not sure how long a full charge is but it's pretty quick.

Around an hour maybe less i think.

As for yours, whoever you bought it from, email / call them and send it back to them for a refund / replacement.

Do I need a higher output mA?

Do you know which connector is which (+/-) so I could try with wires to try to figure out what is wrong.

Have you try the different position when charge with the magnetic cable? I heard that the upper pin and lower pin is different, The black ring of lower one is bigger than the upper one. And i suppose the lower one is the positive pin after testing by the instrument. So if you put the magnetic connector wrong position, it will not charge.
