Do you un-mount the USB keyboard before unplugging in Settings, Storage, USB storage ...?

The tablet mounts the USB keyboard in the same way as an USB thumb drive, as USB host via USB OTG cable.

So you have to un-mount your keyboard every time when you'll unplugged it ... like a USB thumb drive

Couldn't you use a Bluetooth keyboard?

Re: Powered USB hubs, can you get a battery powered hub? Say one that can run off half a dozen AA or AAA rechargeables. 6000mAH of NimH cells should keep it going for quite a while
