I'm looking into using these batteries: http://www.batteryspace.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=711
Wiring eight to make a 9.6V pack, x3 of those in parallel to make a 9.6V 30AH pack. (I've got money and time on my side so...yeah) I've also seriously considered getting a motorcycle battery, but they're pretty heavy and I want as light as a load as possible for the motors, hence less current draw. I don't know how heavy my finished robot is going to be, (haven't put it all together yet).
But if any of you know of a specific 9V or 8V lead acid battery that's above 26 AH and weighs less than fifteen pounds, I'll consider that one. (I found one just like that before and could've sworn I bookmarked it, but now I've lost the site!)
Okay, I'll do a search for soldering batteries. I'll also look into those connectors too, ed.
What does that mean, when the wires are Flush, Admin?
