When I first got my iPad, it took me a while to figure out why it would not charge up when I plugged it into my computer. Later I found out that the iPad needed 1.2A while the USB port on my desktop only offered up 0.5A.

There are lots of iPad owners out there who are finding themselves in the same boat as me. If your notebook, netbook, or desktop is from MSI or uses an MSI mainboard, you can now get a free app that will let you charge the iPad called i-Charger.

The i-Charger senses what is plugged into the USB port and when the iPad is recognized the app changes the power profile for the USB port. Once the iPad is removed, the power profile will return to the standard 0.5A version for all devices.
