Battery Power

by kjlowe on Mon May 12, 2008 6:27 am

I'm planning on buying a motor shield, but before I do I want to figure out how I'm going to power it. I was thinking that I would go with Nickel-cadmium batteries since I will likely be doing deep cycling, but I can't seem to find any in capacities over 1Ah.

I will likely be running 2 servo's and a small dc motor. If I'm hoping for around 2 hours of continuous use, what would you recommenced to power them?

I believe a 9V would be enough to power the arduino for more than a couple hours straight. But similarly what type of battery would you recommend for it?

Thanks for you help!
