Man, that’s a slllloooowww refresh time on the e-paper display. If it were 500 msec or so, it’d be obnoxious, but usable.

Can these boards be used with larger epaper displays, e.g. 6 inch ?

I purchased one of these boards from Banggood. However it differs from the one pictured in that instead of a slide switch on the right side above the battery connector, there are four blue LEDs. The top one blinks all the time and the other three are always illuminated. Is there any way to program these LEDs?

These LEDs are controlled by the IP5306 power-management IC. They should indicate the charge status of the attached LiPo, but I’m not entirely shure, because the datasheet is in Chinese. Here is a link to the datasheet: https://www.electrodragon.com/w/images/f/f0/IP5306_datasheet_v1.01.pdf
As far as I understand from the schematic included in the datasheet, this chip boosts the LiPo voltage up to 5V and also charges the battery.
