    It never charges when I have it plugged into my computer USB port. Is this because it requires current directly from a wall plugin and the USB port doesn't generate emough juice?

    I've been wondering the same thing. I remember like 2-3 years ago when i had the iPhone 3G it charged while in iTunes, so why doesn't the iPad?

    Because the iPad has a much higher capacity battery it requires a more powerful charger. Even though it says it's not charging on the USB port it really is but VERY slowly. It is highly recommended that you only use the Apple provided wall charger for the iPad.
