Replacement Jetbook Question

My replacement Jetbook arrived today using Firmware 34 C and all is working great with it. I have a question. This one came with a wall charging unit as well as a USB cable. The USB cable is unlike any I"ve ever seen. It has a red and a black computer USB end and one mini end for attaching to the ereader. Nowhere is this mentioned in the instructions and I'm curious as to why I have 2 computer hook ups and one ereader hookup? The support from Ectaco was wonderful. My first unit was unable to be seen as a USB device and they replaced it immediately. Thankyou Ectaco..

There is a limit to the amount of current a single USB port supplies, some devices will
include a cable such as you describe so that in addition to providing a data interface
and power from one USB port it can also draw some power from another USB port.

Luck;
Ken
