    Is it OK? Or does it hurt anything?

    No reason you can't. I use mine all the time when charging. Especially when in the car and at work.

    I do it all the time and hasn't hurt my phone at all. Don't try this hooked up to a usb though, as I don't think there is enough juice through the computer to charge it while you use it.

    If using it while charging hurt the Droid, then the multimedia dock and the SatNav dock would not only be worthless, they would be counterproductive.

    It's best to use a powered USB hub, then to plug directly into the USB on your computer, if possible. I find that my HP laptop will sometimes have difficulty keeping up with the Droid power requirements when using and charging a dead battery.

    On my powered USB hub, however, it doesn't skip a beat.
