You can get batteries for most hotspots from Amazon.  You can have your replacement in a day or two.

I had that problem, because I was leaving it on charge all the time. New battery. Charged to 100% and switch to one of those small white cube chargers for an iPhone. Maintains,  but doesn’t over charge.

Is it possible to power the hotspot with 12V and remove the battery. That's what I do with our Netgear hotspot.

I solved my battery overheating (twice) by connecting it to a 24hr timer. After a while you know how many hours to charge per day. Set and forget.

This is also what we do.  Many timers only let you program one on and off per day.  We got one that can be programmed with multiple sessions each day.  I've got it programmed for one or two hours on and off during the day, and off all night long when there is no usage.
