I am looking at some home automation stuff and thinking about wall mounting some tablets. these will probably be some cheap tablets like refirblished ipads. I am wondering about the battery, is leaving the tablet plugged in with the battery at 100% 24/7 a bad idea? I am not worried about overcharge or anything like that as the tablits and batteries have that protection built in. I am mainly worried about battery expansion/ fire hazards, I have read that it isn't good to keep a battery at fully charge in a hot environment.
I have heard a few people have automated the tablet charger to shutoff when the tablet reaches say 70% then turn back on at 30% or something like that. Is that a better solution?
Or am I being overly concerned about this and just not worry about it?
While it's not the healthiest for the battery, the risk of a fire isn't any higher than just using the tablet.
