Replace AA batteries with AC DC adapter or battery phone charger?


I have a couple of Universal AC-DC adapters. Could they be used in place of the AA battery pack with the right jack? If so, what would be the required voltage and amperage?

Also, could a phone charger with the right USB jack adapter be used in place of the AA battery pack?


The AA battery pack provides power for the motors. The USB cable connected to a charger or PC will only power the board and the sensors devices.

You can use a 6V DC adapter to replace the battery pack.


Thanks! I found a 6V DC adapter, plus a plug that fits, and it works!
