Hmm you're worried me. My ipod-mini is recommended for
usb-2, but I guess that's for data transfer. I usually
charge it with the usb-1 port of my ibook. 

Do you have any idea how much power it takes? Am I putting
my usb port at risk?

Could not find the info on the web, and apple removed the
ipod mini specs since they're introducing the ipod nano...
