One of the things that had a lot of iPad users in an uproar when the device first hit the market was the fact that it needed more power to charge than the typical USB port offered. The average USB port only has 0.5A while the iPad needs 1.2A to charge.
That means a lot of users plugged their iPads into the USB port on their computers and found the iPad would not charge. MSI has announced a new app for any MSI notebook or desktop using a MSI mainboard called i-Charger.
The app is installed on the computer and recognizes when the iPad is plugged into the USB port. Once the iPad is plugged in, the app automatically changes the power profile for the USB port to provide 1.2A of power so the iPad can charge. The app is free for MSI users.Filed Under: Apple iPad, Laptops
