    I have this feature on my new board, the p55a-ud4 and I can confirm that it does work with products other than ipods, although some products ( such as creative's 'zen' ) remain in 'usb' mode because they are being supplied power and will not accept user control while in this mode, so no music while charging However... you are obviously 3 feet from your pc at this point so frankly it is a non-issue.

    I presume, newer devices will allow for a usb charge and detect that they are not actually being accessed via the hub, but I have no other devices to test with so I cannot say for sure
    if this is not the case: 'Big hint to manufacturers'

    it also charges a Sony psp, and a Sony handy-cam that I have and both appear to receive a full quick-charge, so thumbs up for this new feature!
    ( it's certainly not as gimmicky as I'd thought when I bought the board )

    Yeah, I too thought it was a gimmick so that's why I didn't bother with it until recently. Works like a charm. Good stuff.

    Good to hear guys all the more feed back from users is help full to others...

    Anyone else who have tested this with other devices other then Apple products please let us know if it worked while cpu was on, in sleep, turned off. Was it connected before turning cpu off or after cpu was off. or If it didn't work all together.

    i can confirm it works for the sony ericsson w880 and k850 phones so will probably work on all models,just remember to install drivers automatically when any boxes pop up in windows or else it wont charge untill you install your hardware drivers first for whatever your plugging in

    ok, I've plugged every usb device I possess into the charge ports now and I can say, some devices do 'stick' in usb link mode and are unresponsive when left in when shutting down the pc, ( my creative Zen and Fujifilm s304 do this ) however unplugging them after shut down and re-plugging them does make them work again and they just charge normally, I did also recently get a backlit keyboard, 'keysonic KSK-8001UEL' that will remain backlit when the pc is turned off, which is rather amusing to see but there is no problem as the lights can be turned off via the keyboard itself too.
