Then the option should be available under Power source for computation. You may have to scroll up

Oh, I see Advanced preferences aren't even necessary. Just pressing Power Source for Computation should already give the following options:
Wall socket
USB connection
Wireless charger
and in red Battery

Maybe something gone wrong in translation. Try the 4th option from the top.

I would guess the language has too many lines, causing the last line not to be seen.
Can you rotate the screen in landscape mode?

The first and the fourth options are similar - wall socket.

Where did you get this version from? Because as far as I know, the Android version from the Google Play Store is only available in English, it isn't translated. And there's no option in it to set it to a different language.

Well, in that case it's a bug. Please report it at BOINC Github: https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/issues
I ask that you do that because Vitalii will probably ask you extra things that only you can answer.

Perhaps a translation error.
The fourth should be battery.
