Can you charge and transfer from a camera (or another supported device) at the same time?

If this thing is running a USB line to something (in my case a USB audio class compliant audio interface), is there any way to charge the iPad simultaneously? If you hooked it up to a USB hub that provided 10+W maybe? I don't know if USB works that way...

  • No charging is supported. Transfer in only.

  • It would not appear that way, since the device occupies the only input on the iPad, and further, the device doesn't appear to have any sort of auxiliary connection that would allow for the application of any type of outside power. Odds are the kit only utilizes the pins necessary for data transfer.
