    Using a PC. Charges just fine, as long as the screen is off.

    It depends on the age of the computer that you are charging it on as well.

    My Imac is about 2 years old and charges fast. No problems at all.

    I always get the warning that I can get faster connections if I use a USB 2 port, but I don't have any.

    So far as data transfer speed I imagine the newer 2.0 is better, but what about power level? Is this also increased with a newer 2.0 port?

    Not all usb ports are equal in redgards to supplying power to peripherals, sometimes utilizing a port in the back of the pc rather than the front will solve the problem. A powered usb adapter can work wonders also.

    Never thought of the powered hub, good idea. I have an older Belkin 5 port hub for my laptop. This could be a nice alternate when I am at the office.

    I will give is a shot tomorrow and see how well it works.
