I have left it recharging, sitting on an old dinner plate, next to me, just in case.
I've looked a bit through your thread and I got interested. Also, I was wondering about a few things.In some of the cases you write that you want to get the 3.7v straight from the lipo. But as the lipo becomes more empty, the voltage will drop. Although the battery is not yet "empty" it is probably too low of a voltage for the camera.
If you would use 2 lipos in series to get 7.4V then you want to use a DC-DC converter. If I recognised the circuit then that's one of those LM2596. They have probably a 90% efficiency at best. So not optimal.
Have you considered using RC lipo batteries? They are usually of much better quality than those eBay powerbanks and not expensive either. All you need to get in that case is some circuitry to prevent over-discharging and away you go. All-battery.com has these.
