Running Linkitone from an External Battery

Does anyone see a problem with running the Linkitone from the USB port with a 5v source.
This is for an automotive application. I can convert the 12v car battery to 5v using a buck converter to a modified USB cable to provide power only to the micro USB port.

Running Linkitone with 5V 3A UBEC

I would like to run my Linkitone from a 12v Battery in order to reduce the voltage I have a 5v 3A UBEC DC/DC (Buck) converter.
The battery input on the spec sheet says 4.2V.
The question is:
What is the upper voltage limit on the battery port.
