    It says that because the current available from your computer through the USB port is not enough to really charge the iPad. It will charge if you are not using it and the screen is off, just slowly and if you are actively using it, especially with wifi and/or Bluetooth or cellular it will still drain the battery, just not as fast as not plugged in at all
