Hi (first post) So yeah, this is my 4th iPod. I had a 4th gen, 5th gen, iPod shuffle first gen and now I have a beautiful 2nd gen touch . So I was wondering, when using the iPod while connected to the charger, if it had any effect on charge cycles at all? Whether it was good for the battery, bad for the battery etc etc. Also, with my old ipods, I heard that leaving iPods connected to power sources for long periods of time without use creates crystal deposits on the battery. Is this true? Thanks all for your help.
