Hi, I have iPad Dock and I am curious if constant connection with AC Adapter or via USB to my iMac could somehow affect battery capacity? Of course I'm make some cycles, but I have most time iPad on dock connected to my iMac so that, the battery does not work, because iMac is charging it - could it affect my iPad's battery?

Constant charging won't hurt it. As long as you sometimes use it undocked and most of all, calibrate it from time to time. Some calibrate monthly, some once in 3 months. Worry not and use your iPad according to your needs.

Have fun!
