battery is3.7, 3.8 charges with usb power of 5.0v rated at 1 am.

throwing higher than 5.0vdc will burn out your cam, 6.0 vdc will do it for sure.

its designed to be powered/charged from the USB port which is 5volt so can't see how it can do any harm. I've ran one off a USB battery pack for 3days continuous with no issues
