heads up on the laptop charging- the USB spec is very clear about how much power a device may pull from the host device (computer). so if the droid is following the spec it can't just pull as much as it wants but must limit it to the USB spec. We're just used to soo many devices ignoring the spec and sucking all they want that it's surprising when one actually doesn't suck all it wants.
Also if it follows the spec (some phones do and others dont)- it's supposed to first hook in with like a trickle charge (100ma off the top of my head), then ask the USB host "hey can I have more power" and ONLY once it has permission from the host is it allowed to draw more (500ma MAX if i remember correctly- compared to the 800ma posted above that a wall wart might provide). Since everyone started aggreeing on micro usb as the new charging standard for smartphones new devices are supposed to negotiate to allow as much as safely can be delivered but since that's a newer thing I'm not sure anything but the newest computers would allow more than the 500ma max of the older usb rules- and hopefully that bit was integrated into the droid (I think it's supposed to short the data connection with a certain resistor or something to signal it wants more than 500ma.)
