iPad USB Charging Solution
Well...I kinda fell into this one, but I figured I would share my find with you!
I know that some people are not happy with the fact that the iPad does not necessarily charge from every USB port. I felt the same way, until I realize that I had a $8 fix.
I have a Sprint mifi that does not charge via USB. I was told that buying the below accessory would change that. It didn't. In fact, I forgot about this until yesterday. I tried it out. It worked. I am happy.
I've tried this out using a few different USB ports. When I plug my iPad into the ports directly, it does not charge. When I plug it in with this adapter, it charges.
I can now say it is one of my prized accessories...

question for the OP... does it charge at a normal rate... or the lower speed charge. i can't see how it would work...
after some research, i found this cable... dual usb power cable the 3rd cable seems to be the one that i normally find on external bus powered hard drives, but with a USB output... i wonder if it would allow full charging since its powered off 2 usb ports instead of 1..
