pinephone keyboard + dock question

i've recently gotten the pinephone keyboard

now i also have the dock that came with the pinephone.

The manual of the pinephone keyboard states to NOT charge through the pinephone usb port and only through  the keyboards usb charging port.

to use the dock you need to use the pinephone's usb and connect the charger to the dock. Which to me would be charging through the pinephone.
Which the manual warns against.

can you use the dock + the pinephone keyboard together or is this impossible?

I have yet to find a way.  The docking bar does not need the charger.  The docking bar in the fon  when in the keyboard registers, but doesn't function.  Connect the ethernet and it shows up as USB0, assign it an IP address and it shows up in 'Settings > Network' as connected, but it's not connected and 'ifconfig' shows all the right signs but 'running'.  Frustrating and inconvenient  to have to take the fon out of the keyboard to use the docking bar.  Has 'anyone' had any luck??
