People keep trying battery tricks to fix that - it's not broken, and it's the same as laptops.

All comes down to modern safety circuitry in the charging system - a screw-up there causes these batteries to literally catch fire.

And by the way - there's zero ripple in a battery output, unlike what comes from the wall. So, I'm more than ok with designs that don't run directly off the wall, bypassing the battery. Running at full power from the charger through the battery would be trickle-charging - guaranteed to start a fire.
That I did not know. I've read so many threads on batteries that it's been ingrained into me to bump charge my phones lol. I won't proclaim to be an electrical engineer as I am not one.
