I'd say the battery is on it's last legs.

 

Are you charging fully then unplugging the charger?

Its a rarely used tablet just over a year old. Yes i  am un plugging it WHEN  it eventually does charge up . It takes about 4 days

Is it the right charger? 4 days is way off "normal"

 

It could be possible if the battery was on its way but it might be best to get it looked at, or at least try another charger if you have one that's up to the job.

Yeah, check its the right charger, as if it cannot provide enough power during charging it will take 10x longer than it should, and wouldnt be able to charge ot while in use...

 

A better charger will help...

It's draining even when powered off?

I was going to suggest checking that GPS is off, because that can drain battery fast and if you're on a slow charger can drain it faster than it's charging.  But that doesn't apply if it's powered off.

To echo what everyone else has said...check the charger is working. Just get a generic USB charger and use whatever USB cable you need.
