I'm noticing the same thing. I can't charge my iPad while I'm using it. It just takes too much power to run. I just turned it off and will let it charge overnight. It was on the charger for about 3 hours and was still at 18%. I checked and I did have the brightness turned all the way up.

When I plugged it into a USB port on my iMac it said "not enough power to charge" or something like that.

What I don't understand is that I get long life out of the battery, but plugging it in barely supplies enough juice to run it, so it won't give you any more life that way. The display Wifi and 4g are power hogs. I only use the wifi at this point.
