I was looking to see what version & power the USB ports were, and the QuickSpecs diagram says (for the left front side ports):
22. USB 3.0 port
23. USB 3.0 charging port
However I'm not sure what is meant that only #23 is designated a "charging" port, when plugging my iPod touch Lightning cable into it causes Windows 10 to start auto-installing driver software... which I cancelled, but the device still shows as "Apple iPod" in This PC in the 'Devices and Drives' section.
So is #23 being marked as a "charging" port an insignificant descrepancy, or why is it specifically designated this way when the other isn't?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Normally you can use USB 3.0 charging port to charge you phone/tablet when the laptop is off. You can use any port to charge phone/tablet when machine is on.
Hope this helps
