USB port for charging another device?

Does anybody know if that's posssible? I have a Sandisk MP3 player that charges via USB and I was wondering if I could just hook it up to a plugged-in Iliad....

My Kensington travel light works on the USB port, so it's obviously putting out a trickle of juice - but it's going to run down the battery on your iLiad something wicked, I'd guess!

I just tried to hook up my 2,5" USB HDD to the iLiad, it didn't start up correctly. So I guess the iLiad's USB port doesn't give the full 250mA you can expect from a normal PC.

If your MP3 player only needs <250mA it might work, but I wouldn't count on that.

OK, that sounds interesting. Does it last much longer compared to charging on a PC?

OK, now that my Iliad is back from Holland, I can finally answer my own question: Yup, charging an MP3 player (in my case a Sansa c200) works just fine. That removes one additional charger from all my future travel plans ...

no, I can't tell you precisely but it doesn't seem so much longer.
