It doesn't, thats why I ask.

I suppose its supposed to be charged with its own charger that they sell separately. I have an adapter that I can charge it with my PL6.

That's what I was thinking.

Thanks.

Btw a lipo like this, can I just charge it and not worry about it being fully charged sitting around? With my flight lipos I charge immediately before flying and then keep them at a storage charge when not. Hoping I don't have to baby this one like that

Any battery sitting around at full charge is a hazard regardless of chemistry. is this a receiver battery or transmitter battery? If you expect it to put out minimal amps such as for a receiver it shouldn't matter. The small rx lipos I use in my RiteWing toys have been charged for years.

It's the battery that powers the goggles and the module inside.

Low draw. Leave it charged but don't expect it to last forever. Check it every now and then.
