How do I turn off Power Delivery on the UD-CA1?

I just got a UD-CA1 to use with my XPS 13 9360, and it’s working perfectly. I was wondering if it’s possible to keep the dock hooked up but to turn off PD so the laptop isn’t charging? I was always told it’s not good for optimal battery life to leave a laptop plugged in for hours a day.

I know there are BIOS settings to optimize for mostly AC use, but I was hoping I could keep the dock connected and use all of the ports on it, while just disabling PD to the laptop.


Thanks for asking Matt.

PD cannot be disabled.
