USB hub that charges iPad
I've scoured the net and am amazed at how little I've found regarding charging the iPad 1 or 2 from a USB hub.
I have a 15" MBP and ideally would like to have a USB hub connected to it that I can run everything off of, including charging the iPad 2.
can anyone make an recommendations? I bought a 4 port belkin hub at best buy and despite it also having a power source it does not charge the ipad.
any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

I looked too - was unable to find a hub that would supply sufficient amperage to charge an iPad. What I do with my MacBook Pro is put everything I can on a hub, and leave a port free on the MBP for my iPad & iPhone as needed for syncing, and charge off the supplied charger.
