I've got mine plugged into the outlet in the wall. I started charging it around 8:30, so I figure I can unplug it tonight when we put the kids to bed.
From what people have said here, it's best to charge it 8-12 hours the first couple times. I don't remember how far you're supposed to drain it the first few times, so I'll let someone else who knows comment on that. I haven't updated my firmware yet, as I'm waiting until this evening when I know it's fully charged. It looks pretty straight forward, but I'll find out for sure tonight!
