No one has posted such a mod. But the question remains as to what purpose would be accomplished by doing this?

That is in effect what happens when connected to the charging dock, power from the charger. Any power supply connected directly to the battery terminals must contend with the system running current both into as well as out of the battery. The software will prevent the robot from running when power is supplied through the charging port, as it properly recognizes the robot is not free to move. Of course, it starts up in that condition making an initial move to withdraw from the dock. Problems can occur when due to defects in some diodes the battery power leaks back into the charging port connections, sensed as though on the dock, triggering software responses, maybe stopping cleaning, would have to find those reports.
