    He was not saying that you should charge the N800 via its USB port
    but rather that you can use a USB charger, i.e. a cable that has
    USB on one end and a power adapter plug on the other end to plug
    into the standard power port of the N800. With such a cable, you
    can charge the device with anything that provides USB power, such
    as a computer, wall or car adapters, battery packs, etc. I
    personally use Proporta's USB mobile device charger which is
    basically a battery with USB output to charge my N800.
