LED's

When using an LED formation, with a picaxe and added sensors, servos, and motors that is powered by four AA batteries, does that change what the source voltage for the LED formation would be? And would it be possible to add this LED formation to the start here bot at one of the output pins so you could control the blinking of several LEDS instead of one at a time. Or if there is a better way to accomplish this could you please enlighten me?

What battery pack to buy

 

Hi,

I am making an obstacle avoiding robot which uses Tamiya Twin-Motor Gear Box (http://www.robotshop.ca/tamiya-twin-motor-gearbox.html) which has two FA-130 motors. Maybe I will add lcd, leds, etc. in future. So what battery pack should I buy. There are different types of battery packs available at http://www.pololu.com/catalog/category/54

Which one would serve the purpose, and would be usable for future use.
