Device plugged 24 hours a day - battery replacement/removal possible?
I have an Archos 35 home connect - but question is for any device
My device has a 3.7V, 750 mAh, 2.77 Wh Li-ion battery, but it has inflated, it's dead, and the manufacturer doesn't make them anymore (Coslight CA403064) :(
The fact is that the device is plugged permanently, which must explain the inflation (too bad, looks like they don't put a security cutoff system !).
So, as I'm a pure beginner in batteries, and as I don't want to burn the house (lol), I'd like some help with the following questions :)
1st : can I replace the battery with any other battery (the original one has three wires : blue, black, red), and would you know a good model, with security systems ? The original battery size is (millimeters) 3.8 mm x 625 mm x 30mm, but any other "small" size would be good as I'm gonna put the battery out of the device if it doesn't fit in.
2nd : as I let the device plugged permanently, is there a way to plug it without any battery ? Is it safe if I simply put the battery off ? Or if I plug my USB power supply (1.5 A/5V) on the +/- wires after putting the battery off ? Something in my mind tells me it's no so simple... ;)
Thanks for your help :)
Is this a good question?
