JST to 9V Battery adapter – single
3 in stock
A single JST-to-9V Battery Adapter for operating the Viper with a 9V battery. (9V battery not included.) One 9V batteries (use our dual adapter and two 9Vs doubles run-time). We recommend Duracell Procell (PC1604) for one hour of run time – better than every other 9V we’ve tested. Procell’s can run a HXT12K servo at 1.5A continuous (while driving) for well over 15 minutes with two betteries. (Robot matches are 3 minutes each.)
For maximum competitiveness, we recommend using the rechargeable 2S 7.4V 300mAh “Galaxy” lipoly pack, or the 3S 11.1v 300mAh “Galaxy” lipoly available with Lipoly Charger. This Adapter cable is so that you can power your bot with a 9V battery instead of a lipoly battery (saving you the cost of battery and charger until you are ready to upgrade!).
