Yep, plugged a USB in and nothing happened. It's a good point though as I release that some phones need quite a lot of juice and simply won't charge via a PC based USB. I've noticed the problem started since I got my new phone which has a 2100ma battery - so at first thoughts it could be to do with that, however I then got my wife to connect her phone which has always worked and that didn't work either.
Like I say, its intermittent. Perhaps by connecting my phone it kills the power temporally which then means testing my wife's phone also appears not to work.
It does seem odd that it works sometimes and not others though.
