    Gigabyte, ASUS and MSI deliver driver software to allow iPad charging from the PC -- Engadget

    I'll have to wait till the phone is depleted a bit before testing it, but would this yield faster charge rates, or be able to run a TS off usb?

    I'm not too sure about charging speed, but it should be able to run a Touchstone.

    I realized that my laptop, which has 4 USB ports, has one of them specifically marked with a small lightning bolt icon next to the USB icon. I found out that means that port delivers a full amp (1000 mamps) for charging/power. So, not sure if this firmware update does the same thing or not.

    I've heard those lightning ports supply power when the laptop is powered down, but still plugged in.

    It is easy enough to figure out. Try sticking a TS on that port, and also when it is shut down.

    I know that in device manager (on PC, of course) you can see amp ratings for some ports.
    Universal Serial Bus controllers- double click one in that list - power tab.
    Some do not have this tab, but all mine that do say: Total Power Available: 500mA per port, even after installing the update.
