Xadow GSM+BLE: connect battery to breakout pins

Hi all,

I have purchased Xadow GSM+BLE but I can't find any batteries with the required JST-SH connector in my zone. My question is: if I connect a battery to the breakout pins 3 and 6, could I charge this battery through the 5V microUSB?

Thank you.

It should, vbat should be vbat - but for me, the 11-pin connector has fix 3.3V instead of the battery: is it like for everyone or just my module is wrong?
(now I can't connect several battery cells parallellto the bus to add extra power - yes, I know the risk of parallell lipo cells)
