So asus has this little utility that changes the usb settings and sends upto 1.2A to your iphone/ipad though a regular usb slot(works on non-asus mobo's too), problem is it doesn't work on any other device except apples.
Does anyone have an idea what exactly this utility changes in the usb settings?

this is the test i did and the results

so i use the Asus Ai charger feature and a qualcomm quick wall charger 2.0, useing AccuBattery to monitor the charge results

each test was done as follows. plug it in wait a few minute for it to average out then record the info also i use the asus AI charger off and on to see if there is any difference
"Wall charger" ibb . co / hxsTEv "Asus AI Charger OFF" ibb . co / dYP8Ev "Asus AI Chaerger ON" ibb .co / msqgZv (sorry for the links i cant get into my old account and i cant post links yet on this new one so take the spaces out and use the links to see pics)

so the test obviously shows that the AI charger is working faster then the wall charger with it on and "Pic of wall charger incase your interested" ( ibb . co / n798Ev) the wall charger would range from 700 mA to 900 mA, were the asus charge OFF would range from 150 to 400mA and with it ON it would range from 900 to 1400mA. and i guess i should point out this is being done using a LG G5 with a Type C charge cable.

    I have the Asus Crosshair Formula V motherboard and AI Charger+ does work with my Galaxy S3. I downloaded a charge current monitoring app for my S3 and (using the USB3 port) it detects 0.466A with AI Charger+ disabled and 1.2A with AI Charger+ enabled.

    Get Asus USB Charger+ instead. Supports all devices. My P8Z77-V Pro motherboard delivers a 1790mA current to my Note 2.

    I have the AI Charger installed.

    When I connect my Xperia Arc to the computer, the phone sets the current to 1050mA at first but immediately changes to 500mA.

    this is a fast charge mod for the cable to charge your smartphones/tablets with microusb much faster
