I have been looking through all the old posts and cant find any info anywhere anymore on what the old standard servos needed for voltage feed. I used to plug them right into the old V3 EZB and they ran nicely off the 5vdc it supplied.
Anyone know their max voltage?

Edit: Yes I was correct. This topic DJ explains they are Futuba. In another Josh gives the model which is s3003.
If I am correct then the operating voltage is 4.8-6.0v according to this site (and a few others)
I was glad to find out that the standard EZ Robot servos worked on the original Revolution Robots using 7.4 volt lipo batteries. I have wondered what voltage max range they would take?
My question is, am I correct in thinking my rechargeable Radio Shack (six C size) R/C pack 7.2 volt Ni-Cd battery packs will work on my current Robot Captain Ann Droid when I receive my EZB 4 without regulators?
She has 10 standard EZB3 kit servos.
I know there are distinct discharge rates and voltage advantages to different types of batteries.
I understand sensors may need a regulators.
This was a very helpful thread! Thank you Dave. Keep sharing and asking.
Thank you for responding.
Currently I operate my robot for over 30 + minutes with the Ni Cd pack. One extra pack also.
I also have a Radio Shack 7.2 volt Ni-MH that I have not tried yet?
I was afraid I would have to buy many regulators to upgrade her to take full advantage of her IRobot Create platform send and receive serial, (already does great, calculates angles, distance, and tones with EZB3).
So much to look forward to.
