If you’re worried about messing up the dock, I’d just get an external battery as a power source for the pie. Wouldn’t add too much bulk depending on the battery.
Let's say that I end up getting one of these: https://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB ... 000mah-_JM
(sorry for the language, but I have to search one that I can get, and fast, not waiting for 3 to 6 months while it comes from China straight to my house and then pay taxes for it). I don't expect it to be original, but heck, I don't care, it just needs to be as slim as possible. Would the lapdock still be able to charge the battery and power the rasp while it's being charged? Just so you don't have to google translate everything, it says the output max. capacity is 5v 2.1A, which I think should be okay, because I will be using the rasp + lapdock just for some openofficeing and reading some PDFs/PowerPoints (slides, AKA Libre Office Presentation).
I will use the raspberry in my graduation project and as a media center at home, but just leaving it connected to an outlet and acessing via SSH, and connecting it to my house's outlet and using my TV as the display, in that order, so it won't be drawing that much power while in class.
BUT, I still want to use the capacitor, is it really that simple to wire up? I don't think it should screw something up (I just discovered that it will be connected to a Lapdock 100) as I would test with and LED and a resistor... I just don't want to lose my time trying to figure it out
