Using a linear regulator to stepdown 12volts to 5volts ! Dissipates lot of heat!!

i would add a larger cooler to the 7805, otherwise it gets rearly rearly hot and burns out/desolder itself! A better solution could be to use a switching regulator. It's all so strange, that you device, because normaly you need to connect the D+ and D- pins to activate the charching mode.
