  • you can remove.... requires removing bottom panel and some screws , takes like 5 minutes but  honestly  for the  lb~ not worth it  to be hnest..

    quick vid for you on removal assuming you got an R2

  • This is not recommended.

    Since you don't have a UPS Battery (like APC unit) attached, this battery serves same (important) purpose. Like, FP says, weight is not much. Also, it's ok to keep Lithium batteries charged to 100% most of the time. Just run them down to 20% about once a month.
