Switch and Charge Jack
Switch and Charge jack: Are you tired of removing your robot’s armor after every match just so you can charge the batteries? This lightweight jack makes charging batteries as easy as plugging in a connector. Robots that draw less than 6A continuous can even use this as the main power switch!
Switch and Charge Jack shown here, wired into our red and black mini terminal blocks.
Make your life easy– no more unbuttoning your bot to disconnect the battery! Use our charge jack. Once the jack is plugged in, the power is cut to the bot, and it’s safe. You can then charge your battery, all without taking the battery out. It’s so easy, at a very low cost.
Used on all of our Viper Kits.
