    I'm looking for a simple answer to an odd question.
    Can I charge my phone, android, micro USB, with the life of the battery inside my iPad?
    As in plugging one into another?

    No. The iPad port does not deliver enough power to charge another device.

    The ipad used to give enough power out of the USB camera connector kit for me to power my USB Barcode scanner. I then used a database app and scanned in equipment with the bar-code scanner. However after last years iOS update, they have limited the amount of power that the iPad can output and it no longer powers my usb scanner. You get a popup saying something about it not having enough power to use this device.

    Do you know if there is a jailbreak app that can unlimit that cap? Or at least change it? I think it might be doable. I don't know how, but it doesn't seem unreasonable... Lol
    I really wouldn't care if I killed half my iPads battery from charging my phone. It's just sometimes it would be hugely convenient to just power my phone from my iPad.
