Temporary disable charging via usb (Windows 7)

Hey guys

I just registrated here to ask if it is possible to disable automatic charging whenever i plugin my ipod touch 4g into my laptop. I don't want to screw my battery by charging a 50% loaded battery just to plug it in to put some new music on it. Is this possible? My laptop operates under windows 7 home premium 64-bit.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: i'll hang around more if i like it around here

Welcome to iLounge. No, you can't disable charging on the Touch, but it draws relatively little current compared to your laptop, especially if you're just adding some new tunes then disconnecting.

Hmm okay. Thought the battery might lose "health" if i'd do it erryday => plug in for 5 min. to remove/add music erryday. Thats what I do quite often.

You can charge as little or as often as you like, lithium-ion batteries are not subject to "memory" issues like the old NiCad batteries.
