1. Is it OK (i.e. safe) to combine these Li-ion batteries in parallel? In this case the mAh will also add up or not?
2. Is it possible to use the same USB port as input AND output? E.g. In this design is the USB port bi-directional so that it can be used for the "power pack" to charge but -also- to be charged? I believe no, so how do I go about using a second connector in order to "charge" the pack?
3. Again, I do not have formal electronics/engineering education, so, is this way out my league? Or, simply put, should I just forget about it and just use the MintyBoost as is?
Is this a "bad" sign that I do not get between 5 and 5.2V but 0.04V less than 5V? I hope not.
