    TLDR: You can't.

    The way it works is the phone runs off the case battery first, and then when the case is depleted, starts using the internal phone battery. When charging with the case on, the phone battery is charged first, and when that is full, then the case battery is charged.

    There is no switch or software control to change this behavior. If you don't want the case battery used first, you'd need to take off the case.
