I'll try to put this is simple words so that DJI can't dodge the question with a canned response. They probably just won't answer.

Question:
How can I stop Mavic 2 Pro RC from charging my android phone?


Too complicated for dji support (dji ignore this part):
Does anyone know any way to prevent controller discharge to phone? Cutting the 5V wire prevents the phone from recognizing that it is connected.
My samsung note 8 can drain the RC in 1 hour, and my phone was at about 90% battery the whole time, so the "only below 40%" thing is a myth, or only applies to iphones. Sure I could carry around a power bank so that I can pump completely wasted power leaving my rc back into my rc, and just let that rc battery get totally thrashed from so much input and output.

Any elegant soldering solutions? Is there a simple spot people have found on the RC board to stop it from being able to throw its battery charge away?

Turn Fast charging off in your Note 8 and always start the day with full charged Note 8.
I fly 7 battery without a problem on my S7.

Hi Milint33W,
I run on iOS and there is in the app, when connected to the M2P, an option under settings and then remote controller settings that is labeled Charging Mode. If that is on it will charge your phone from the RC, if off that should not happen.

Hope that helps

Only way that worked for me:
Unlock/root your phone, then you can use this app: https://play.google.com/store/ap ... mantya.stopcharging

I always root my phones, so it was not a big deal for me.
For the average android user this behaviour of DJI RCs can surely be annoying and there is no solution...

Ive been considering rooting. I used to root my phones, but now there are a lot more good reasons not to, especially on the newest phones. I may still.
