Hi, i want to know if it is safe or OK to leave the SATA power cable plugged into my SSD/HDD(connected to motherboard) while i only plug out the SATA Data cable.

Motherboard(Data Cable IN, Power Cable IN)<------------>SSD(Data Cable plugged OUT, Power Cable still IN)

The reason i ask this is because i need to dismount my HDD/SDD to use my Dock, and my SSD's power port is broken, i don't want to keep plugging out the power slot on the SSD's end.

Which is worse breaking the connector on the SSD or on the motherboard? How about neither and get a cheap 2 dollar adapter/extender and make that the sacrifice?
