Safe Operating Voltage


#1

The robot computer behaves erratically when the voltage drops below a certain limit. I need to find a safe operating voltage so that I can change the batteries when it reaches that voltage. I can use Python function volt() to find the current voltage. I plan on getting a power supply, but meanwhile need t track the voltage. What is the safe operating voltage limit? Thanks!!!

Hey gmnn, it absolutely does. I would recommend you keep the voltage above 7.5V. That gives the converter enough space to handle the voltage drop and keep the input to the Pi at 5V.
