« on: February 19, 2013, 10:12:19 AM »
hii ,
i need to control 35k brushed motors  i have heard that they require a lot hell of current ....
which batteries would you guys recommend  and i need to control 3 motors at a time
should i power them individually or 1 battery should power the 3 at a time????

Hi

I have no idea what 35k motor is, hence posting a datasheet would help a lot :)

Without datasheet no one can tell what batteries You should use. You'll have to measure current draw - that's the only way. Measure it when motor is stalled (be fast, You don't want to burn it) and when free-running. Also, if You don't know voltage of the motor be careful not to over-voltage it, start with small voltage and track temperature, while free-running it should not get hotter than around 40°.

Voltage? Ampere? Weight? DC/AC? Time without a reload?

LiPo batteries are quite popular. I like them.
LiPo means lithium-ion polymer. They are light compared to others and can deliver 1 to 10 amperes which is quite good.
The drawbacks are they need a special charger and they can burn.

NiMh (nickel–metal hydride battery) is the second option.
They are heavier, but they are a little safer.

Probably cheapest batteries You can get are SLA type. They can take fair amount of abuse as well and then be recovered by well built charger. The biggest downside I see is that they are very big and very heavy (compared to other common types of batteries).

Cheap, heavy, safe: Sealed Lead Acid (SLA)
Lightweight, some safety problems (see recent groundings of Boeing Dreamliners): Lithium Polymer (LiPo)
Medium cost, medium weight, safe: Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)
Lightweight, very few safety problems, more expensive: Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (LiFePO4)

I use LiPo for my small, walking robot, and LiFePO4 for my larger, rolling robot.
Here's an example of a reasinabke LiPo battery for a 12V motor driven robot: http://www.hobbypartz.com/98p-25c-5500-3s1p.html If your motor draws 10 amps when running, this battery will give you about half an hour of runtime. If you need more runtime, add more batteries in parallel.
Make sure you have a charger that can charge a LiPo battery correctly.
