C5-05: How to make charging on USB optional?

I am using a Nokia C5-05. I use the USB connector frequently to sync or connect to internet from my laptop.


What I observed that the phone battery starts charging as soon as I connect the USB cable. I understand the frequent recharging of the battery will decrease the life expectancy of the battery.


So, is there any option, like the USB mode that pops up when I connect the USB cable, that will allow me to choose whether the charging is to be done or not?

Hey Kangkan, Welcome to the Nokia Forums!

Im afraid it is not possible to prevent the device from charging whilst it is connected through USB.


I hope this clarifies any queries.
