At least 3 hours to fully charge the battery, whoever told you half an hour is completely clueless & has obviously never used a Kindle in real life. Never EVER USB charge your Kindle, it takes much longer. Use the mains plug supplied, charge for 3-6 hours then your fine for at least a month with wifi off.

I've got my kindle plugged in via usb to my laptop (windows 7). If I go to 'computer', 'e-drive' (which is my kindle), right click and eject I can using my kindle the same as if it was unplugged but it is charging. This should be the case for everyone.

Hi Shy Guy
Thanks for the tip for the kindle, you can read while charging providing you remove it from 'COMPUTER' and NOT the TASK BAR

As soon as I eject mine when it is connected to my laptop the front page comes up and I can read my books. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium.
