Why two power ports on a budget laptop??

I have seen my PBP go from 60% charged using the Pine supplied charger to 100% charged
While watching YouTube videos with the volume turned up to the Maximum.

I understand some users may need more power, but it seems to be enough for me.

I am still using mrfixits Debian OS on my PBP.
