A very simple question.
Looking to make my spider mobile. To power the board (not the motors) I was considering:
5V 2.1Amp total output plugged into the usb port.
A little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing. Would it be safe for me to use this?
As far as I know a standard usb port is 5v 0.5Amp.
But not sure if the battery would have 2.1Amps available, or if it would be forcing 2.1Amps and fry the board?
Or does any kind person have another low cost non-soldering solution?
After two Xboxes, one Ps2, one WII, and various other electronic devices, I have been banned from using a soldering iron in the apartment.
