Do Play and Recharge iPod speakers damage iPod battery?

by wasserstoff1991 / December 14, 2008 2:25 AM PST

I recently went to several apple stalls which sell those iPhone speakers with dock. And I have noticed that a number of iPhone display already have battery problem. Common example is that iPHone show fully charged but when you remove the cable, the battery is only half full. Does that mean that using those iPod speakers do damage and overcharge iPod/iPhone? So we should not buy that kind of speakers?

I'm planning to buy a iPod speakers for my room. Any suggestions? Thanks!

To explain this would take far too long and won't fit in this small box. Batteries in all devices do not last forever and this has some owners upset.

I understands that battery itself have a cycle. However I won't like to know that whether these charge and play speakers will spoil the battery fast as I saw in the stores. And what model of spsakers you would recommend?

Sorry for the trouble but I really hope you can help.
Thanks! And happy holiday!!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
