HI PEOPELS, LIKE THE SITE.
I have been think alot about the power consumption of the robots, in particular the rs media. Unsatisfied with paying so much from batteries, i have been trying to find a solution. One of me friends owns a rc model shop, they have a new type of battery. Its called a lithium-polymer, on the thing, it says it puts out 2200 mah fine, i thought nothing more of it. Until, me friend said that i could pull 44 amps out of it with no problems.
So my question is this do you think the robot would pull what it needs like 3 amps 4 amps, until the thing is flat. If it would we would have a 11 hour run time on one li-ploy cell, the charge time would be about 2 hours to. The other bit of good news is this, the li-poly cells run at 7.2 volts/ 9 volts. So im thinking two in the legs, and we have 88 amps and a run time of 22 hours.
The only problem is they are explosive, not like normal batteries
i mean explosive, see the link.
i no it says from over charge, but its the same if you hit them to hard. what do you think.
