Electrifying greets,
Half the time to the transmitter charge?

If the transmitter charge took 10 hours and your usb took 5 then no its no problem, if your transmitter took 10 minutes to charge and your usb took 5 minutes to charge then yes its a big problem.

We need more info to answer your question properly but as KB suggested its probably normal, i charged on the transmitter the first two times, first time took 5 minutes as they obviously come pre-charged or it had been tested before sending but the second time took nearly an hour, my iphone charger does it in around 40-45 minutes which doesnt get the battery warm at all.

After your charge feel the battery, if its warm (tepid is ok, i mean warm) then its a littel quick if its hot your in trouble.......

Remember folks charge then leave to sit for 5 mins, fly then leave to sit for 10 mins before charging.
