Will charging my MP3 player damage my iBook's battery?

    I have an iBook G4 and an iAudio F1 mp3 player. The mp3 player is charged by hooking it up to the computer's usb port. Then the mp3 player charges from the computer. Before I had my iBook, i charged it using the desktop. Now I charge it with my iBook. I was just wondering if this was bad for the iBook's battery? I usually have the power cord plugged into the iBook and wall when I'm charging my mp3 player.

    In a word, no, your battery is fine. Charging your mp3 player will just draw more power, just like turning on your airport card or brightening your screen will draw more power. If you charged without being plugged into the wall, it would drain your battery a little faster, but again, nothing to be worried about.

    cheers :)
