I’m really keen to buy my first pi for a robot project with my boys. I’m planning a pi zero w + Piconzero differential drive robot with a lego chassis. I’d like to use just a single 4 x recharge AA battery pack to keep size down. Am I on the right lines?!
I assume the 4.8v will do to power the pi zero and the piconzero. But will I get into trouble with the motors? Could a motor thats too big damage the boards? Will it cause the pi to reset? I guess I’m looking for something like 2 x F-130 motors but geared and running on 5v.
I know a single 9v battery would do the trick but I don’t have a charger for those (maybe I should just buy one…)
What do you think??
