Not enough power


#1

Hey everyone, when I connected my NXT to the motors they are strong enough to get up the rampage easily, but as I connected the BrickPi it wasn’t powerful enough. What can I do that the BrickPi becomes stronger ?

Forget about the rampage :slight_smile:
rampage should be RAMP !

The RAMP has a slope of 25 degrees.

Has anybody tested different batteries or rechargeavle batteries?

Hey Morgs,

Your options for powering are here: http://www.dexterindustries.com/BrickPi/getting-started/power-up-the-brickpi/

What are you currently doing to power the BrickPi? You can power up to 12V, and if you need to get up a steep slop, can we recommend an 8XAA battery pack?
