Yes. Instead of the solid adapter, a short USB cable gives more flexibility:

Can you use your C5D from a desktop/laptop without wearing out the battery (i.e., will usb power constantly charge the battery, or is there a bypass circuit built in so that the battery stops charging at 100%) and then having it ready to go when you unplug for travel?

Yes, battery stops charging.  See link above

Really great and comprehensive review JS, thanks for taking the time! I found your entry right as I was trying to understand the first problem you pointed out - how to connect an iOS7 device to the C5D without having 26 feet of wire and connectors sticking out all over the place. It appears you've handily dealt with the issue, which was my last reservation with snapping up a new C5D. Of course, your reports on the sound and the performance with various cans was also quite helpful as well. 

 

Just wanted to give out a big thanks for your work - very well done!
