Here is a hopefully simple question, and a little explanation to go with it.
Okay,here we go...
I am currently adding extra sensors and bits and bobs that eat up power on my robot and I would like to give my robot a bit more power to work with and so that it can run longer. That is simple thanks to12 AA batteries
My robot uses a Picaxe 28X1 and from what I have read it doesn't like more that 12V.
Here is the problem: my 12 AA's give out 18V ( and yes I did use a calculator! ) but I can only give my chip 12 of those 18V.
