Lora 32 v2.1 - battery charge issues

I am running into issues with using this device on meshtastic and then connecting either a 18650 3000mah battery or 3000mah 3.7v 11.1Wh lithium pack and connecting in a solar panel via the microsub port that is 5v 3.5w. There have been no changes to the board and is factory. It looks like some changes to the board are needed but would like a little more direction on the charge chip.
