Brand new ifixit battery charging extremely slow


Just popped in my new hard drive and battery from iFixit.  All went swimmingly until I started to charge the battery.  Macbook came up wicked fast.  The battery showed  7%.  Put it on the charger and 5 hours later I am at 47%.

The old battery was still functional and would run for about 3 hours on a full charge and would charge quickly.  I decided to make the switch at the same time as the hard drive since I would be opening up the case.  Is this what I should expect for the life of the new battery or is it a first use sort of thing?  Any suggestions on how to get the battery to charge a bit faster?
