    So the question is , can I keep my C5v actively connected to the power charger docked in the station all the time. I assume it will not get hot or damaged due to constant charging. It actually happened in one of my older C5 (C2D) that i kept it on the docking station with ac power connected and went on vaccation for 8-10 days.

    When i arrived i found that the tablet is not working. Later i discovered that the motherboard for this unit went bad maybe because of an overcharge or some heat up situation which blew the charging IC or something similar. I had to replace the motherboard for this unit (which was another story to procure one in the first place).

    According to the following article the charging should be smart and once the battery is full it should only be doing trickle charging.

    However just wanted to have an opinion from the fellow users.

    Thanks for your replies.
