Professor E's Overview
This lesson demonstrates how to charge and care for the robot battery.
Remember to connect and disconnect carefully, using the thumb and finger to gently rock the connector back and forth. Never pull on the cable wires.
Always charge the robot before use. The battery saving monitor will indicate if the battery is getting low. Power off before charging.
Review the Getting Started Guide for more information.

The Deans connector is designed for high current charging that can't be done through the balance plug. In most cases the balance plug is used for cell monitoring.

It can use the balance connector for charging since it is a low current charge. I would recommend using the EZ-Robot charger with use of JD. The alternative would be having to connect/disconnect JD's internal power harness in order to access the deans plug, which would be a very laborious process if you did this for every charging cycle.[/font][/size][/color][/font][/size][/color]
