Pine phone USB keyboard connection
According to the pine64 instruction, pine phone should only be connected to its special keyboard, customers should not use generic USB keyboards to connect to the pinephone because it would cause the USB keyboard to charge the phone, that does not make sense, I have a DELL laptop that can only be charged by a USB power supply, I can connect to the USB keyboard or any USB peripherals to the same laptop USB socket whout charging the laptop battery

I would like to see pine phone is more flexible in regard to USB peripheral connections, I thought it should not be hard in hardware design to only allow the USB power supply unit to charge the battery and to filter out other peripherals for battery charge, are there any reason why the pine phone could not do it?

Thank you.

Kind regards,
