First, apologize for my english.
I want to run my robot without battery.
Has ever tried someone?
Can an adapter be tinkered and connected to a universal power supply?
If someone has already built,
I would look over pictures.
Upgrade to ARC Pro

I use a switching power supply 6-12v 5000mA that i had for my rc charger and i have set it at 7.5V.
The model is MW7H50GS if you want to make a google search.
Your English are much better than mine!
Can you show me a picture of the adapter to the Lipoakku plug?
The pole coverage interests me.
Is the battery disconnected from the system during this time?
Or have you installed a changeover switch?
Thanks a lot of.
I gave you a solution to power up your EZ-B stand alone.
It possible to power up your robot by power supply but you must do some mods at the electrical circuit inside the main body (battery case).
As i don't have the original jd robot (mine is 3d printed) if you can post a photo of the body inside i will give you the way to make the modification. Don't forget that you must have some basic soldering skills.
Then when you unplug the power supply you can use the battery to power up the robot.

There are a number of threads on the forum with recommendations for power supplies. I suggest searching on the term "inrush" rather than power supply for better results since the issue being solved is inrush current.
I never thought the so small servos could need so much energy.
This is really amazing.
Unbelievable, what a small battery makes.
At 20 amp I leave the fingers of a DC jack.
I know this from the flight model building and is too dangerous.
Lipoakkus are too sensitive to short circuits.
JD is too expensive.
I have found a power supply of Graupner with 20A and 5-15V for model building.
I hope this will work.
How long can I run JD on the power supply?
When should I give him a break?
Can overheat if the duration is too long?thank you
I don't think there are any hard and fast rules about how long you can run the servos before giving them a break, depends too much on what they are doing and the load being placed in them. Balancing on one leg or holding the arms out straight will cause more strain then just walking around. You'll need to do some trial and error. If the servos feel warm, give them a break.
