LiPo Booster.

LiPo Booster is a breadboard-friendly boost converter board based on the TPS61230 IC from Texus Instrument. It has an output voltage of 5V, and is designed to be used with a single cell LiPo battery.
 
For normal and half size breadboards, the LiPo Booster can be plugged into the power rails without blocking the vertical 5-pin strips. It can also be used with a tiny breadboard or breadboard of any sizes as shown below.

  1. I don’t see any kind of protection, is there a polyfuse on the bottom pcb side?

    Not all cheap lipo-packs are (properly) protected, even if they got some kind of pcb used.
