Have you ever plugged a tablet into your PCs USB port only for it to tell you that this is nowhere near enough power to get it juiced up in time for your meeting, or ever? Well, ASUS have seen this issue and stepped up with a very clever solution – ASUS Ai Charger.

This is a free utility that assures you that your tablets and phones will be charged at least 50% faster than if you leave them to relax while attached to standard USB ports. It works by sending up to 12A through the USB port so that your device gets juiced fast. It won’t be as quick as if you slot it into the wall, of course, but it is an absolutely perfect solution for those times you facepalm because you forgot your adaptor.

Or those times you went overseas and realised you didn’t pack your area specific plug. Yes, this is when the ASUS Ai Charger will definitely come in handy. Now it is worth pointing out that this utility has been developed with Apple products in mind, but it does work on some devices without that fruity branding.

The ASUS Ai Charger software is available for a range of chipsets and motherboards from ASUS as well as all desktops and you can download it for free from their site without any hassle at all. You can also charge in any mode – whether you are working, in standby, suspended tor RAM/HDD or in shut down mode – so your devices are ready for work when you are. Wow, I wish I had seen this before I went on my trek across the UK the other day, it would really have helped a great deal when everything I had ran out of battery at the most crucial moment.

Give it a bash, it’s pretty cool.
