" Will it hurt anything, no but it will really be slow for a while."
Really Slow as in snail slow. Molasses running uphill in January slow Users with torches and pitchforks at your door slow.
If your system ran like a Lamborghini it'll run like a Yugo. An old one. With bad gas. And bad sparkplugs.
Ask me how I know!

Great plan Rob and I wish more folks were as proactive as you are. I
agree with the get it done when the system can shut down, since there is
a very high probability that a new battery would have to charge up
anyway, and if it's changed on a live system, cache is down for that
length of time. Will it hurt anything, no but it will really be slow
for awhile. Better to shut down and be safe, after all your not running
a finance system where it must be 100% available.
The problem we have in our area is the CEs won't swap a battery before
it's time, so they don't tend to allow the preemptive swap out.
