With the K2, even if you are charging from the computer, you can "eject" it from the computer and still read while it is charging without actually unplugging it from the USB drive. I do that every now and then, although, since the K2's plug is on the bottom (is it still there on the K3?), I usually flip the display 180 degrees so that the cord is coming out of the top.
