Gigabyte's On/Off Charging technology was announced back in April and it has made many with mobile devices pretty happy having a place to charge their mobile devices whether their PC is on or off. Gigabyte has now announced hat their On/Off technology is indeed compatible with the iPhone 4, and even provides a 40% faster quick charge than traditional motherboards. This is due to the fact that Gigabyte's USB ports can provide the near 1 amp that the iPhone 4 requests to quick charge compared to the 0.5 amps that USB ports are normally capped at.

 

We want to assure our customers that they will be able to continue enjoying the benefits of On/Off Charge should they choose to upgrade to the new iPhone 4," commented Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at GIGABYTE Technology Co. Ltd. "On/Off Charge behaves just like iPhone 4 chargers in providing the amount of current that the device requests throughout its charge, without force-feeding or damaging the device battery." Check out the demo video from Gigabyte below:
