The iPad and iPad mini require a high-power 10W USB port to charge properly, but users of PCs and many older Macs only have USB ports supplying a low 2.5W. The iStyle PowerPill is an adaptor that generates enough power from a low-power port to get around this problem. It also has the ability to charge devices up to four times faster than normal. Available from Harvey Norman and The Good Guys stores as well as independent retailers.
