    Unfortunately, there is no option. As soon as you plug your iPod into the dock, it will begin charging. The only time the dock will not charge your iPod, is if the dock goes into sleep mode (or it runs out of battery itself). This happens if your iPod doesn't play any music for over 10 minutes and happens automatically. Other then that, the dock will charge your iPod, whether you want it to or not.

  • Actually, if you connect it to the auxiliary input on the back with a mini-stereo cable, instead of putting it in the dock, it will not charge it. I do this with my iPhone so I don't have to take it out of the case.

  • If the unit is on it will charge regardless you cannot stop it from charging while the unit is in use. Hope this helps.
