You cant charge batteries more than 100% of their capacity.
You do in a testing facility where your intent is to push them well beyond their limits.
My neighbor used to work at the Chrysler proving ground near Chelsea MI. They drop cars from several stories high, drop things on them from similar heights, free rev engines till they blow up, run them hard with brakes dragging....

(What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?)
Overcharging batteries to see what happens is not charging them more than 100% of their capacity.
When they are fully charged, no more energy can be stored.
It is like filling a gas can over it’s capacity. Sure you can keep pouring gas in the inlet, but it just escapes and makes a potential explosion.
All the energy is used up making explosive gasses.
They may find out what happens, but in the end they can’t get any more energy out than 100% of capacity.
