Still wondering if I can safely put 5 volts in the external battery plug.
If you are referring to the tiny internal battery connection plug, then NO... DO NOT PUT 5V ON THAT CONNECTION UNTIl IT'S KNOW IF THE CIRCUITRY CAN HANDLE IT. The #11 circuit could manange 5V but, but it a totally different circuit board design. That small plug is not mean to be an external power supply plug (like the USB plug is). You could safely put a larger single cell lipo on the internal plug, though, but the recharge time will get even worse than it is. Best to charge external single lipo cells with a dedicated external charger.charger
