Long Trip - OK to charge while using?

I am a new iPod user and I have a travel question.

My husband and I are off for Xmas vacation and will be in the car for hours on end. Is it OK to have my iPod charging while I am using it?

Thanks so much!

iPod Touch 2G and NOW iPad!! =)

I pretty positive it's okay. I made a few 24 hour road trips with my iPhone and had it plugged in most of the time. The batteries are apparently made to prevent overcharging. Just make sure you get a charger that specifically made for it. A lot of them also have fuzes to prevent damage.

I bought the Griffin Power Jolt for iPod just for this trip.
