You'll need to give it close to 5v if by USB. 3.2-4.3 is tolerable over the battery terminal.

Removing the lipoly battery isn't a bad idea if you use USB, but if you do, you'll need to put a resistor across the pin for the thermal sensor. The e200 will not boot unless the thermistor is reporting close to room temp. You can figure out what you need to use by sticking an ohm meter on the battery terminals. IIRC its a 10k thermistor but its been years since I played with the 200 charge circuits so I could be wrong.

I suspect that if you do use the USB port, you'll need to account for additional power losses in the USB voltage regulator. I have no idea what these are like.
