    Because it isn't. LOL
    No, seriously I think it has been shown that it does actually charged via USB but at a very slow rate. The power source of the USB is not strong enough to charge the iPad so you need to plug it to the wall outlet for charging.

    If you have a recent MAC, it will charge properly, if you have a newer motherboard in a PC with the higher output USB ports it will charge. Otherwise, that's why it came with a charger just for the iPad. Technically speaking, most USB ports put out 0.5 amps @ 5 volts, the iPad charger puts out 2.1 amps @ 5v. That's what the iPad requires to charge fast, but it will still charge up on the USB ports, just slower.

    You probably did not understand the instructions.
    It is a USB cable connected to a power supply.
