Question Venom 700MAH 35C 1S LiPo - Does it have a voltage protection board?

I don't know much about protection boards/chips, but I know LiPos have those things to prevent it from being overcharged, does the Venom 700MAH 35C 1S battery have one? I can feel a long rectangular thin piece in the LiPo (I'm not squeezing the battery don't worry I'm just touching it lightly), and then a the real LiPo pack starts to come up, it's a thin piece and turns into a thick piece which would be the battery, but I can't see it since it's in a blacked out covering.

I charge it from a normal computer USB jack with a USB charger (not an advanced 60 dollar charger), I believe the USB charger has it's own chip but just to be on the safe side I wanna know if my Venom battery has a chip so I don't have to keep an eye on it ALL the time. Obviously I'm not gonna leave it unattended though, but just incase I fall asleep..

THANKS!

I don't know the specific pack you ask about but most LiPo batteries do not have protective circuits to protect them from being overcharged. That is handled in the charger.
