Why does the G2 use an AC power adaptor instead of charging via USB connection?

This is to ensure that the G2 charges quickly (approximately 1hr for a full charge) and gives an amazing 10 hours of battery life after this extremely quick charging time.

With only 5W available over USB, charging a G2 would take 5 times longer than with the supplied 25W adaptor.

We could reduce battery capacity to compensate, but that would reduce playback time and there would also not be enough power left to charge your phone with the G2.

Where other manufacturers have chosen the route of convenience through USB charging, we chose the adaptor charging method to give excellent battery life, fast charging and enough battery capacity to charge a phone.
