    disconnect N1 battery charging while tethered to laptop?

    Hey All,

    I tethered my nexus one to my battery-charged laptop today and my N1, which started to charge off my laptop's battery, began to drain my laptop's battery in record speed. Is there any way to stop charging the N1's battery when you're tethered up?

    Thanks!

    Why not use Wireless Tether?

    In my personal experience, 3G uses more battery than Wifi.

    I have found that i can get several days (3-4) on a wifi enabled, 3G disabled run like when i am away or out of the country. however i can barely get 2 days out of my current build running on 3G alone.
