Not that I know of, you have to use the charging lead.
There will be eventually. There is a change that can be made to the kernel...

As I understand this, as of this date there is no way to charge the Acer Iconia a200 via a USB cable. Correct? What were they thinking?
Perhaps they wanted to be able to charge the tablet in less than a day?

Heck, even an iPad needs a separate wall wart to charge properly. The iPad charger uses 5V 2.0 Amps. Kindle/Nook chargers are 5V 1.0 Amps.
Does that mean that the HW has the capability?
