Most likely the controller will not charge unless it's connected to an "intelligent" device. Most USB devices most likely aren't equipped to have voltage flowing into them if they do not charge or self power over USB, so the controller probably talks to the device and says "send me some voltage". This would explain why a powered hub wouldn't charge a controller without having a PC connected to it.
