WRT charging, my S7800b doesn't charge through the usb. Not sure if this has been addressed with later models, but there are also tutorials online showing how to adapt an old USB lead to provide charging from a USB port on a PC. Although you still need to use the jack port for charging. Plus, your average PC - particularly laptop - only shunts out about half the power of the supplied charger, so expect lo-o-o-ong charge times when using a PC USB for charging.
I have a perma live 2a USB socket on the back of one of my speakers that I use for charging everything, Ideally I'd like to use that for charging the JXD also, My JXD actually came with a USB>DC adapter which works fine but I'm not sure if it is safe to hot plug the cable into the JXD or not.
