The Overdrive comes with an A/C charger (with USB port) to power the device and recharge the battery. You shouldn't remove the battery.

For 3G yes you can run out of data because you don't have unlimited 3G anymore. You do, however, have unlimited 4G Wimax data. You're throttled if/when you hit 10GB but it still means you have unlimited data.
