how to charge the battery?

Postby headamage » Mon Dec 04, 2017 6:15 pm

can i charge that battery straight from the rover or will I need a separate charger for it? I see there is a DC barrel connector but I am not sure what voltage to apply there and if I can charge the battery from it.
Also, is there a protection circuit for the battery?

Research is the only place in a company where you can continually have failures and still keep your job.
I knew immediately that was where I belonged.

Thanks so much. I thought the USB port was only there to program the arduino. I haven't tried plugging it yet. I guess I should have tried that first :)
