can i charge that battery straight from the rover or will I need a separate charger for it? I see there is a DC barrel connector but I am not sure what voltage to apply there and if I can charge the battery from it.
Also, is there a protection circuit for the battery?

Thanks so much. I thought the USB port was only there to program the arduino. I haven't tried plugging it yet. I guess I should have tried that first :)
