    Nope, the RICE port and the recharge port are two different things, for different purposes.
    You won't be able to use the RICE port to charge your batteries nor would you be able to use the recharge port as a RICE port.

    To add to the above, the rice port is a female 3.5mm; recharge port is a male 2.1mm

    You could build a custom cable or adapter and have them both the same, but you'd run into one significant issue. Accidentally plugging the charger into the RICE port and burning up your board.

    I'd avoid that if possible. At some point, you'll forget which is which, or someone will try to be helpful and charge it with the wrong port.
    We all have to start somewhere. The journey is all the more impressive by our humble beginnings.
