Oh, and no, you cant run the whole thing off of just 4AA batteries. The circuitry will run off the AA batteries but the servos need more thus the 9 volt.
Admin: What data sheet? Are you referring to something on this site? I checked the battery case and all it said was "Charge with chargers recommended for NiMH batteries"...
Ok, found the data sheet (Radio Shack seems to like to hide it)... It says that it charges at 1.5V 180mA, and my charger says 1.45VDC 200mA. Will the difference of 20 cause a catastrophic explosion?, Will our intrepid hero ever solve his battery problems? Tune in next post for the answers (hopefully ).
could I use these two batteries for the whole robot or will it run out of power to fast?
I'm only allowed to use 4 batteries (<,=1.5V each) or one battery pack (<,=4.8V) at a time. Any help ?
