Default [Q] USB-VBUS Power

Hi, recently I've installed Carbon ROM on my phone and I saw an option labeled "USB-VBUS Power" under the app "NovaThor Settings", I know that I9070 doesn't support usb OTG, but I've checked with a multimeter and the port gives an output of 3.9v
.
My questions are, what can I do with this option? Will I do any harm to the battery if I use it?
Any way to use the usb as a serial port or something? (Interfacing with Arduino for example..)

Thanks in advance

You can use it to charge your other phone.
