Im building a hexapod with 3 DOF. 18 servo motors are used. The servos type is DS9811 (Torque at 4.8V: 25.0kg.cm). Moreover, i am going to use an Xbee module for wireless communication (3.3V @ 50mA). I am not sure how many servos will be operated at the same time. The microcontroller to be used is an Axon II. The datasheet of the microcontroller says that a 6V 1000mAh+ NiMH battery works great. But does this mean that the Axon will be able to operate as many components as i need (in this case 18 servos+Xbee).
I found a battery on the website below, is it a good one ? :http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/p/5916-NiMH-Rechargable-Battery-6v-2300mAh.aspx
But the battery have 2300mAh. Is it ok to use ?
Do I need to buy a charger.
