Yes it works fine from USB. It normally runs from 6V but I tested it down to 4V and it worked fine. A USB lead supplies 5V so that?s ok.
We sell a cable that goes into a USB port and the other end has two wires, positive and negative. You just solder these into the PCB where you would normally put the batteries.
The product code for the cable is 4101 and the product page is here http://www.kitronik.co.uk/products/batteries-holders-chargers-usb-power/power-supplies-and-usb-power/usb-power-lead/
