So I have heard that the battery charging is controlled by the firmware. Is there a way to have the battery charge ONLY to 10% and then stop charging it? The reason is because the batteries life will last longer. These devices are going to be plugged in at all times. So the batteries get fat on occasion, then they press up against components and obviously I'm worried about fire safety. When they are fat it always messes with the wifi and the touch screen, but if I relieve the pressure by cutting the metal back off it works fine.

So I guess I have three questions:
Will this battery blow up eventually? Can I leave one with a fat battery running?
Is it a good idea to use a replacement battery that might be more rugged? (I already CAN install one I just dont know how long it will run or if it is a good idea)
MOST IMPORTANTLY: Is there a firmware edit or something possible that would keep the batteries at 10% charge level while plugged in?

Thank you guys,
SM
