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.
Your computer's USB ports only have 0.5 Amps of power, which is standard. The power output of the iPad charger is 2.1 Amps. That is why it says not enough power to charge. It will eventually charge when plugged into your computer, but it will take much longer.
