working with 18650 battery

    It took only one charge for charger to stop working and I had problems to charge it with other USB devices for some reason. So I took the risk and open the alarm (it was easy) the battery in fully charge is 4.15V and they say 350mah so it has the same voltage with one 18650 battery , I cut battery wires and connect them with a 18650 battery holder and close it again (I posted a photo to product link but its the same alarm with a 18650 holder attached). Now its working fine and with a good 18650 battery it holds around 40 to 50 days instead of 3 or 4.
    Of course now I have to charge battery separately from the alarm

    Will this unit work with the charger plugged in so you can leave it on all the time?
