Sometimes it’s the little things that make your life easier, and that’s what Gigabyte
has been aiming for with its On/Off Charge technology. Simply put, On/Off Charge is a utility on Gigabyte motherboards that enables fast charging of iOS
devices, even when the system is sleeping or even turned off.
With the new third-generation iPad
already flooding the brains of early buyers with dopamine, Gigabyte wants you to know that On/Off Charge supports the new device and can charge one up to 40% faster than a standard USB port.
On/Off Charge also supports all previous iOS devices, and it’s available on most Gigabyte boards released in the last couple of years, including the company’s upcoming 7-series motherboards.
Gigabyte users can download the utility
(although it should already come with your motherboard utilities disc) or connect the On/Off Charge front panel header to enable fast charging via the front I/O panel.
