Battery Booster Pack for Mobile Robots P3-AT

This project started as a way to support the need for more power logevity during testing and a way to utilize batteries several sizes to large that were accidently ordered.

The batteries we used for this booster pack were three 12V 12AH Lead Acid Casil Batteries about 4" by 6".

While these batteries were several inches too large to fit in to the robot itself, the voltage and current were compatible enough that they could easily be added in parallel to the stnadard batteries used.

The Mount

In order for the batteries to be easily added to the bot without inerfering with functionality or taking up the valuable real estate the top of the bot offers, a mount had to be consturcted.

For this mount we decided to use angle iron as the main material and nuts and bolts as the fasteners. These materials were chosen because of the ease with which they can be used for construction and the strength they'll provide in the face of the somewhat weighty batteries.

The dimensions of the base are: 13.5" x 9.25" x 5.5"
