    Quick charge you IPad, IPhone and IPod from any computer with the NEW USB Driver from ASUS.
    I've installed it on five computers and it works great!

    When installed the USB port will detect if the IPad, IPhone or IPod is connected and provide the power it needs to charge like magic.

    I have a 2007 MacBook Pro which does not charge my iPad. I assume these drivers are windows only?

    This i just for ASUS motherboards.
    Other manufactures are also putting out updates to allow the USB ports to put out the correct power.

    Check your Motherboard manufacturers website for updates.

    It still charges slowly, but surprisingly it actually works on my PC laptop :). I'm wondering if there are any side effects though....PC did seem to start up slower.

    I installed it on my newer HP. Didnt prompt for MB type.Worked on my ipad for about 5 secs when I got a blue(memory dump)screen. Happened with every reboot until uninstalled. I'll go with the trickle.

    Most computers do charge ipad, albeit slowly, when the screen is off but I wonder how faster it charges.

    My unofficial tests:

    Wall Charger: 1% per minute
    Updated USB: 1% every 5 minutes
    Old USB speed: 1% every 15 minutes

    AFAIK, this AI Charger program sits in the tray awaiting the connection of any apple device. When you plug one in, it will send 1.2 amps through that USB port instead of the standard 500mA, thus allowing your iPad to be charged :)

    I don't know about the long term affects of delivering this much power through a USB port though..

    I was also wondering about the long term effects of sending more power through the USB ports on some lower end motherboards not designed for such power requirements, and also if extra heat will be produced
