24×7 plugin rolleyes Not a good idea
Keep it at safe distance – fire alarm recommended
Use jioFi plugged in without battery

Not if the mobile supports which for convenience I am terming Laptop mode. Some Sony mobiles when rooted can even control the charging voltage which is even better.

Root and messing up with the kernal and charge controller. It not a good this and also void down the warranty for some manufacturer.

Last but not the least device has to deal with thermal throttling 😕

Rooting doesn’t void warranty in case of Xiaomi devices. It is a feature that is built into the charging circuit. Even if you don’t root it will still exhibit the default behavior. Without root its a tad more cumbersome to check, that’s all.
Thermal throttling? After limiting charge to say 80%, both Redmi 3s and Note 3 draw only 152mA consistently. Battery isn’t charged further. Temps barely above ambient.

Which sim u will be using in that ?
If jio you can buy a Jiofi device and use jiocall application on any other mobile that will serve both of your purpose I am doing that currently.
The only downside i find is you can’t use upi application everything else works perfectly

Redmi 7A

Provides probably longest battery backup.
Charges real slow.
Comes with 5a, 1A charger.

Yep in case of mi. Warranty do not void but its a hit and miss.
I did try controlling the value but somehow it did not worked for me several other is used to arised wavelock and auto restarting. You may give it a try hope it works for up.

but at the end of day. its the manufacture who knows what’s best for the device.

I have been doing the same successfully for the past 3 years! So imagine my disappointment that Poco didn’t support it. Oneplus devices don’t as well. Oh well. The devices that need it the most are covered. Batteries in Redmi series aren’t of a very good quality. On the flipside relatively cheap and continue to be widely available years after launch.

wont this degrade the battery quickly as battery cycles will be consumed. i think better would be to bypass the battery when its fully charged and directly consume power from charger.

I said no such app does it. But changing kernal value is different thing. Nevertheless if its works for you its good.

@Aveejeet

This is the best bypass technique I can think of unless you have a smart charger (you can buy that too).
The way to use is this:
Use your phone for 24 hours on hotspot or whatever you wish to do. Don’t charge in this duration at all but keep a track of how many percentage points battery loses over 24 hours. Let’s say your battery lost 60% charge. Now find out the time in which your phone charges 60%, let’s say it is 2 hours.
Now you program this device to run for 2 hours in 24 hours everyday. Once setup, the device needs no intervention at all.

NO Phone actually.

It’s simple electrical science. A mobile phone has a battery and charger in a series circuit. The battery will always deplete(as the source of current will always be the battery) and the charger will always try to juice it up.
A conventional Laptop has battery and charger in a parallel circuit. The source of current can either be battery or the charger. Hence, a laptop works even without a battery.

How come batteries being cheap and widely available is a flipside? That’s a plus

This should be implemented in phone batteries as well. What’s the alternative? Remove the battery permanently and short the contacts?

Yes. But it’s too complicated to do. The power source needs to be modified so that it exactly matches the voltage of the battery while also dealing with minute power surcharges.

Yours isn’t rooted, right? Try checking in Ampere. If at 100% charging current and voltage at idle are relatively low then the battery isn’t being charged any further. Apps with root access make it very easy to confirm.

Yeah, not rooted.
I couldn’t understand using ampere app for this.. please say in steps.

#Ps- even though I disconnect in 90% (LED goes green) I want to know how can I know this.

#Pps- until I saw this thread, I was in opinion that «smart»phones are smart enough to stop feeding battery once its capacity is full.

I think instead of charging mobile for 24×7.. you can go with smart chargers with wifi switch.. inwhich you can preset auto-on off facility and forget about searching phone with this facility.
I came to see these type of chargers in internet but not purchased it.. i hope it will cost below 1k. Try checking this.. !

OP, use a power bank which stops output when phone is charged.
Better use a power bank with by pass charging.

Battery degradation will be there in this case on average but in your case direct power to mobile by bypassing battery will also damage the circuit/mother board of the mobile, since it heats a lot along with the processor and other components due to continues non-stop step down activities of DC.

Why not just buy a 3g/4g wifi router like tplink MR3420?
