What battery are you talking about?... The first link goes to one bizarre video... I think I saw an ezb in the video somewhere, but were ya' drinkin' a little that day? :)LOL The second link is a dead link....

Do you have a direct link to the battery in question?

#2  

Your video is a little hard to understand, the mic sounds like it was in water. But I did follow what your question was.

It looks like you have the right battery (you got it from EZ-Robot correct?), but you may not know it is designed to go inside the base of one of the robots like Roli, JD or SIX...as those robots come with a power base that can hold the battery inside and they would have a connector inside for the battery plug.

The standard power base, like the one that comes in the developers kit is where you see the round plug for an external power source. It is not designed to have an internal battery like you have. To use it, you would either need to obtain a battery connect plug for your battery, and then connect the wire leads from the connector to the male power plug with the screw terminals.

Or you could cut the connector off the battery pack (leave enough length to reattach the plug for later if you want), strip the wires to expose the ends then you could use it with the round male plug. This method is what I have used for rechargeable batteries in the past.

Does that make sense?

Like Justin said about getting a connector for the battery and connect to the leads of the power plug, similar to the adapter I made. (just figured a picture would help)

THANKS JUSTIN RATLIFF AND STEVE FOR YOUR HELP. STEVE WHERE DO I GET THAT PLUG? OR SUED I GET ONE OF THOSE BASES/WITCH ONE? ALSO CAN I GET AN AC ADAPTER TO USE ? WHAT KIND AND WHERE DO I GET IT?BECAUSE I WILL BE RUNNING ABOUT 21 TO 22 SERVOS AT ONE TIME TO MAKE ALL MY [QUEST ALIVE DOLLS MOVE AND SING AND DO SHOWS. I DON'T WONT TO KEEP CHANG BATTERS EVERY 5 MINS .THANK YOU SO MUST FOR YOU HELP RG JUBILEE .

@rgjubilee It might be better to buy the base form EZ Robot... But you really should use a 7.4v lipo or 7.2V niMh battery pack. If you go the power supply route you are going to need one high output one... minimum of 15amps I would say (based on the # of servos you said you would be using).

Steve made his connector... Radio Shack should sell the parts you need... Copy Steve's picture to your cell phone and show the Radio Shack guy... From the picture he should be able to pick out the parts for you (assuming he sells them)... Do you know how to solder? Because you going to have to solder the Deans plug to the 2.1 barrel plug.... Which mean you will need a bit of 16g (minimum) stranded wire to join them...

#6  

Unfortunately, Radio Shack does not carry Deans connectors (at least according to their web site) . They have become practically useless to the electronics hobbyist lately and I expect it to get worse as they crawl towards bankruptcy.

Unless you live near a Fryes, the Internet is now your best source for electronic components (Microcenter also has some, but mostly kits vs parts).

@Alan, so she is better to buy the EZB base and barrel plug adapter from the ez robot store.. That way she can buy any battery and simply snip of the existing battery connector and install the ezb barrel plug....

#8  

I get my deans plugs at a local hobby shop in town.

#9  

THANKS STEVE AND RICHARD FOR YOUR HELP. STEVE CAN YOU SHOW ME A DRAWING ON HOW YOU PUT THE PARTS TOGETHER TO MAKE THE PLUG? I HAVE TO SEE IF I CAN FIND THE PARTS. I ALL READY TRIED RADIO SHACK.THEY HAD NOTHING!I WILL HAVE TO SEE IF I CAN GET SOME ONE TO DRIVE ME TO A NERE BY HOBBY SHOP. PS CAN I GET THESE PARTS AT THE ROBOT SHOP ON LINE? IF SO WHAT DO I ASK FOR?.THANKS AGAIN RGJUBILEE.

#10

When I made my adapter, I used the end off of the switch unit in the picture below.

When you wire up the Deans to Barrel, you will go positive to center and ground to outer on the barrel.

If you use a barrel plug with wires and you are not sure about which runs to the inner and outer, use a multimeter to check continuity between the barrel and wire ends.

#11  

STEVE THANK YOU SO MUSH FOR ALL YOUR HELP. I'AM GOING TO ODER THOSE PARTS AND DO WHAT YOU SAID. IF I RUN IN TO A PROBLEM I WILL GET BACK TO YOU. YOU BEEN A GRATE HELP THANKS RG JUBILEE.

YES BUT HOW? I TRUED EVERYTHING[ WART IS A URL?

A URL is a web link (stands for Uniform Resource Locator)... www.ez-robot.com is a URL... www.eBay.com is a URL... You have already done this in your first post, so you must know how?... So do it the same way as you did in your first post...

#20  

Yes. The link will be

http://www.youtube.com/watch?=crazynumber

Easiest is to cut and paste. When viewing your video on Youtube, the URL will be in the location bar at the top of your browser. Select it with your mouse, then click Ctrl-C to copy it.

Then in your post here, click the "add a YouTube Video" button, and in the box that opens, click Ctrl-V to paste in the URL you copied.

#21  

RG, those are some crazy robots you have around your Christmas tree. Looking forward to seeing more of you around here soon.

When I post a YouTube video and am at the YouTube site I just right click my mouse button over the video window and it will pop up a little box with the link already cut out and ready for you. Choose "Copy Link" from that menu and you have it. Then back here at ez robot use the Add YouTube button below the message window and paste in only what you copied over at YouTube. Then post your new message and the video will be there.:D

#22  

THAT LOOKS SIMPLE I WILL TRY TO SEND YOU A VIDEO THAT WAY. PS THE BOX ON YOUR SITE MARKED [UBB CODE] AND SAYS ATTACH FILE ./ I TROUT I COULD JUST SEND A VIDEO OFF MY HARD DRIVE THAT WAY? WHY DON'T THAT WORK? AND HOW DO I SAND A PIX ?IT ALSO SAYS URL I DON'T HAVE URLS ON MY PICTURES ? OR /DO I ? AND HOW DO I GET THAT? I'AM TRYING TO SEND THEM OFF MY HARD DRIVE I DON,T HAVE PICTURES ON YOU TUBE IN LESS THY ARE IN A VIDEO.DO I HAVE TO MAKE A PICTURE VIDEO AND PUT IT ON YOU TUBE TO SEND THEM TO YOU?THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR HELP RG JUBILEE.

#23  

Ez robot doesn't want to store everyone's photos and videos. This would take a lot of space. You will need to place the photos and videos on another site and provide a link. I use youtube for videos. You might try photobucket for photos.

#24  

Actually you can upload pictures that are .JPG useing the Attach File button. I do it all the time. Just click on that button and navigate to the .jpg pictures on your computer. Once you click on the picture you just push the Upload button.

PS LET ME KNOW IF YOU GOT THE JPG?

#26  

RGJubilee, Thank you for sharing. Like your work. I use my phone to record and send to youtube. After it is there, copy the address on the forum to "add youtube video". It is on the bottom right side of options. Then hit reply. It will create a link, similar to post #21 that can be shared to community. Steve S

#27  

I DON'T HAVE AN UP TO DATE CELL PHONE LIKE THAT.I JUST HAVE AN OLD SMALL DINOSAUR . IT IS FROM 2000 OR SOME THING. STEVE DID YOU MAKE THOSE ROBOTS?

rgiublee, If not from your phone, you can upload videos that you have saved on your PC from a camera. Go to youtube, Towards the top right, there is a upload box. Click on that, and you can browse videos on your PC, select your choice, and upload. After it is uploaded, you can view it, and copy the link to EZ Robot, as stated in post #21. Yes, most are home fabricated, Mini 6 is a great EZ Robot design, and JD is a great purchased robot. Steve S
