    A tech support person told me that the adaptec firewire adapter provides up to 500 ma to each port (without an ac adapter). Is this enough to charge an iPod? If i'm not mistaken, a Powerbook g4 only gives 7 watts per port. If it's true what the adaptec guy says, that means the cardbus card provides up to 6 watts at 12 volts.
