    Asus and Gigabyte have the same facility, in fact I notice the Asus driver for example also works on my Gigabyte board, it's called ON-OFF charge on the Gigabytes, probably because you can still charge when the PC is powered off (but still has mains power to it of course) It does seem to work on the Ipads... but rather slow though.

    My MSI seems at least as fast if not faster than the iPhone charger.

    It probably is with the iPod, but I think your'll find it's pretty slow when charging iPads especially the iPad 3.

    I meant iPhone, not iPod. You are probably right about the iPad--I haven't tried it w/my new "3" yet.

    Not about charging, but I have found that my iPad has problems syncing over the long cables. Switched to the short one, and Bingo!

    Just thought others might be interested.

    Yes.. I found too, that if I use a 2m long cable plugged into my PC which can just about charge albeit quite slowly to the iPad, it will show on the iPad as 'NOT Charging' but if I use a shorter 1m cable the iPad then shows the 'Charging' message instead of the 'Not Charging message, so it obviously illustrates the losses one can incurr due to cable length. I suppose it shows up more because it only just about works in the first place from the PC... so very little tolerance margin

    Somehow I haven't managed to get a non-charging cable to my iPad. And I've bought lots of them, for my family at home and summer cottage. Simply because the one and only would be lost all the time...

    My advice is not to buy the cheapest nor the most expensive one either. That simply means going to the local hardware/electronics store, not the Apple store or ebay.

    I have to admit that I've been lucky with 3rd party cables, but I buy mine from Amazon rather than ebay. If I were to get one that didn't work, I could send it back to Amazon and they will pay the shipping, as the product is defective. To me, this makes it safer to try 3rd party cables.

    I'm not a fan of the white cables that Apple loves to use. To me, they stick out like a sore thumb. I hate that in my car. So I only get black cables. I use them on my 10 W chargers and use the white ones for charging my phone. So, for me, black cable charges the iPad and white one charges the phone. Now I can easily keep track when I go to charge my devices.
