    I want to disable the charging circuit on my Droid X, I am not worried about the battery or cycles ect. but the USB port I want to use it on is a one off (or extremely limited) USB adaptor that is not a high powered port as in my laptop. This one provides just enough power to fire up a USB stick and transfer a file to it I think it only provides less than 50ma. I am afraid that if I cannot turn off the charging circuit before connecting I will damage the adaptor. Any apps or instruction on how to turn off mine?:thinking:

    You should not have to worry about anying. When you plug in you sould still be able to transfer data, it just wont charge your battery. That is all.

    If the computer doesn't complain about too much current, I wouldn't worry about it.
