No more then when your not using the dock. Most mobile devices monitor the charge, so that you won't over charge the battery. I have an Atrix 4G and I use both the standard dock, as an alarm clock, and Lapdock as a netbook computer. My phone is always being charged in both docks, at least 11hrs a day, and I haven't noticed any abnormal decrease in the batter or increase in heat. I would say that my phone is being charged more then not. I am still using the stock battery, but have a backup battery. I switch between the two every week, just to keep both batteries fresh. (Only been doing this for about 3 months.) At least once a month I let both batteries go down to about 30%.
