Battery Ballooning

I noticed recently that my battery is ballooning due to age of the battery itself & the ambient daily temperature in my house (averaging at 30C).

How to vent out the gases inside the battery? Poke it carefully with needle then re-seal it using a duct tape?

RTC clock keeps reseting to 1 Jan 1970

As the title said, its randomly occurred, but when that happens, the RTC clock is inaccessible via i2ctools or hwclock till I force reset the UPS using the UR button.

What's the cause of that problem?

My fw ver is 32 & back to Jessie coz I can't install RetroPie on Stretch yet....

Working on a complete overhauled script.
Meanwhile you could try the script if the install, removal and status section works.
