Default Run S3 in charge without battery, possible?

Hello,

Im using the North American S3. I had a GNex before from my work and I was able to remove the battery, plug the phone in, and turn on the phone without the battery installed.

My implications for this would be to stream a sports game from my phone onto a tv, Id like to have the phone in the charge but the battery removed.

Does anyone know of a way to make the S3 do this?

Thanks all

Sorry just realized wrong forum.

Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but what would be the advantage of having the battery out for that?

I don't believe it's possible. The phone runs exclusively on the battery, and the charger works only to charge the battery.

Take the battery out and give it a whirl. I doubt it will work. Laptops will do this, but much more current runs through the motherboard than on our phone.
