overload? as far as I know batteries cant over load, they just wont put out the required power.
I have two battery's powering my robot :[...]how can i protect my battery's from having short circuit and/or overloadwhat do you suggest i use (what kind of fuses, circuit etc...)?
I would put it before the regulator though.
Well, my idea was to protect what's downstream form the regulator in case it fails, not the regulator itself. If the zener is before the regulator, and it shorts sending, let's say, 15V in 5V circuits... That would cost more than a 7805, i'm sure.
Thanks for all the help but what kind of fuses(what amp, and something that could plug into a breadboard) and other components would you suggest for these batteries:
So just confirming a 5-6A fuse close as possible to the positive connector of my battery?
Do i need any other fuse from the h-bridge or something
if this battery wouldn't last long then what battery do you suggest : something with more mAh , NIMH battery? and i also have this battery:
(PS: sorry i ask so many questions I'm just quite new to this )
Quite OK, but don't forget Google and your own brain - being spoon fed won't teach you very much, compared to the Ahaas/Eurekas releasing endorphins to your grey matter when you solve something by yourself.
