I charge it in standby mode. To be honest, I don't remember when was the last time I turned my PSV off. Charging from almost depleted to full takes me about 60 ~ 90 minutes~.

No idea, do you have it plugged to your power source or a PC? I use the former since I learned with my PSP that charging battery through the USB port is slow as hell~.

Sounds like you have been charging on a USB port from either your computer or your run of the mill USB Adapter. Use the original charger for best results.

 

Regular USB ports only 500mA of electricity, while the Vita power supply gives out 1500mA.

 I charge only with the AC charger and I wait till I have red battery level. I usually turn it all the way off unless it is overnight when it backs up to cloud. It takes about 2.5 hours. I found I get longer playtime on the charge if it is charged while turned all the way off and I wait for the battery  to be totally drained.
