iPad Charging
Authored by: boxcarl on Feb 07, '11 11:36:23PM

The reason is that Windows doesn't understand it when the iPad sends a message to the computer saying, "Hey, I can use more than the standard amount of voltage in my USB port." Mac OS X does. It's nothing surprising when you consider that normally the voltage that high wouldn't be sent to a USB port for fear of frying the peripheral attached.
