The WeMos lithium battery shield provides a means of powering your WeMos mini, or WeMos mini Pro (see item HCWEMO0002) from a single cell (3.7V) lithium battery. The shield contains a DC-DC converter to step-up the batteries 3.7V to 5V supplying your WeMos mini and shields with up to 1A of power. When the battery is depleted simply plug the shield into a USB power source using a mini USB cable and it will automatically recharge the battery. Two LEDs on the shield indicate when the battery is charging and when charging has completed.

Hi,
Do you know if this acts like a backup battery so if I power the D1 from the USB connector it provides 5 V to the D1 and charges the connected battery at the same time and if I remove the USB power it still provides 5V to the D1 from the connected Battery?

Yes that is correct. Whilst the USB cable is connected both the battery will be charged, and 5V will be supplied to the 5V pin (~4.5V). If the USB cable is disconnected 5V will continue to be applied to the 5V pin (~5V) whilst the connected battery holds a charge.
