My old 7-Port USB hub just died and I'm getting ready to replace it with a new one. Before I do, I wanted to see if anyone here has seen any new HUB's that have at least one High-Powered port in order to charge the iPad while I sync it.
Can't seem to find any. I find a lot of 3-AMP power supplies, but they always note that they don't supply more than 500Ma's of power to each port.

You won't find any because the USB2 specification states 500 mA. The most you could do would be to use a 'dual' cable approach - in the same way that some people run external USB HDDs on their PCs when these consume more than 500 mA. i.e. you get a cable that 'combines' two USB port connections into one and that would give you 1 A.
