    iPad requires more power than standard USB port puts out due to larger higher capacity battery.

    Use the wall charger or buy a computer with hi power USB ports.

    Some USB ports on the computer are not powerful enough to charge the iPad. The fastest way to charge the iPad is to plug it into the wall charger. Click on the link and take a look at this article and it will explain it to you in detail.

    If your work computer is a desktop you can try the usb ports in the back of the computer because sometimes they are high powered  usb ports. If you are buying a new computer you should look at the specifications on that computer before buying it. Maybe the specifications will tell you how many usb ports are on the computer. If it is a Windows computer you can follow thiis article to tell which ports on the computer art 2.0 usb ports http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1174
