    The USB ports probably don't supply enough power.

    Other than that, how would we know why?

    I fully understand that the best way to charge a device is by using the supplied power cables and adapters (in case of ipad, iphone, ipod)  However, plugging my iPad mini into a powered Belkin 7 port hub, SHOULD still allow the iPad mini to charge when on.  It isn't.  This is not good.

    Just spoke to a representative who made it quite clear... iPads and minis draw more power, more than a normal USB hub puts out.  It does work directly connected to my MacMini though...I can turn it off and it WILL charge. Problem solved.
