Includes both a USB charger and a wall charger that plugs in through USB. No different than any other rechargeable wireless keyboard.
Having the USB cable allows you to continue using the keyboard while charging (unless you are a great distance away) which makes it better than a majority of the wireless keyboards out there.

Charging, I guess, is less convenient that using batteries, but you save money on AA and the charge lasts much longer. My last wireless keyboard with batteries lasted maybe 1-2 weeks. And rechargeable AA's have a very quick and drastic dropoff making them fairly useless.

4-5 hour charge time, just plug it in overnight ever month or couple of weeks and you are fine.

A docking station on the end table seems like a better solution to me. (Not that AA's cost me anything)

My getto mod is working well, no point in dropping cash on a new keyboard.
