You can?t charge the Tablet when the portfolio is closed. This is because the charger socket on the Excite is covered by the binding for the portfolio (the hinge area of the portfolio cover) You also can?t charge the Excite while the tablet is set to stand on any angle in the case because the charger opening is at the bottom where the tablet rests on the portfolio. The only way to make this work properly is to flip (rotate) the tablet in the case, but then the camera opening would be in the wrong spot. It seems like Toshiba could have designed the case to put the camera opening on the bottom left (rather than top right). That would put the charger opening at the top of the portfolio case where you could then be able to insert the charger when the case is closed or put the charger in the top of the Excite Tablet when standing the tablet up on an angle on the portfolio stand.
