Overview

No more need to remove rechargeable "AA" cells and place them into a separate charging station, or replace non-rechargeable alkaline cells. Simply plug in a 7.5 VDC, 1 A wall transformer and the charging circuitry does the rest, automatically. This pack/charging solution can replace up to several thousand "AA" alkaline batteries over the Li-ion cells' lifetime.Two Li-ion 18650-size cells and a power supply are required, not included. We recommend our High Capacity Li-ion Cell and 7.5 VDC, 1 A Power Supply.

Key Features:    

  • Fits into the Boe-Bot robot’s chassis, replacing the 4-cell AA battery pack
  • Holds two rechargeable/replaceable 3.7 V Li-ion 18650 cells
  • Provides up to 6 hours of continuous motorized operation (depending on cell capacity)
  • Rechargeable Li-ion cells don’t need to be removed from your Boe-Bot for recharging—charging circuitry is built into the board.
  • Multiple LED indicators provide charge readiness information for each individual cell; status key for the LED indicators is printed on the board.
  • Comes with all hardware and cables necessary for installation into your existing Boe-Bot           
  • Automatic charge/discharge switching circuitry

Application Ideas:

  • Portable power for data-logging applications
  • Mobile Robots - especially the Boe-Bot
  • Stingray Robot (#28980) 

Details
