    Hello All,
    A friend and I will be going to Europe in a few weeks. We both have iPhones and I was hoping to charge both of them using my Air so that I do not have to bother with buying extra power converters. I already have the UK and EU plugs for the Air adapter.

    Does anyone know of a non-powered hub that will charge both phones? Has anyone tried this?

    Thanks.

    I have just tried an ipod nano and iphone on a non-powered hub connected to my MBA which seems to work. I don't have two iphones to test but if anyone wants to donate, I'll do the test immediately! :D

    EDIT: Mind you it certainly takes it out of the battery nearly 1% per minute since I plugged them both in!

    Hi Satori,
    Thanks for checking it out. Do you mean that it takes the drawl out of the battery in the MBA while its plugged into AC power?
