Hi,

I've upgraded my AllBot 408 to a 412.
But now it can no longer lift its own weight.

1) Have you tried the 412 setup with batteries yourself? Did it work ?

2) Will the new LI-ION battery pack be more powerful?

3) How can I easily power the bot with a cable?
It's a shame its not just a USB port.

Thanks in advance !

1)Yes we tested it with the VRBS2 or external power supply

2)The Li-ion battery IS more powerful!
see: http://www.velleman.eu/products/view/?id=434062


3)You can easily power the BOT with a cable.
Just connect a 5V/3A or higher power supply to the battery shield.
But make sure that the batteries are removed.

Best Regards

Probably a dumb question, but where do I find a 5V/3A cable for power?
Can I strip an old USB cable for this? Or do I need to buy it?

Thanks!

There are no dumb questions :)

Connect the power supply to the VRBS1 at connector SK1 on the top right of this image.

I use the GP 2600 serie rechargeable NiMH batteries.
The do just te right thing for me. 1.2V and 2600 mAh
Way much better than those Duracell ones.

Do you have a 412 build powered by those batteries? or just the 408? I'm also using the GPs.
