  • sla m2-atx for onboard computer wifi bot

    hello all, my summer project was to make a wifi bot, im about halfway done with it, im starting on the on board computer and im using the m2-atx and i was wondering what you guys think about a good sla battery? (sealed lead acid)

    how much amp/hours would be good to do the job?

    Well, what's your power draw in amps, and how long do you want to run it for (in hours). And there's your amp-hours answer. I'm really not trying to be rude, but sorry, it's not a question that anybody can really answer with the information you've posted so far.

    I hope you motor is powerful enough to move around a heavy battery (the more AH, the bigger it is).
    Gen 1: Pentium 3 1GHz - ATX - 2005
    Gen 2: Pentium M 1.6GHz - ITX - 2006
    Gen 3: Pentium M 2.0GHz - 5.25" SBC - 2007
    Gen 4: (coming soon: Core2 Duo - 3.5" SBC - 2009) never ends

      yes motors have their own power bank of 2 12v 55ah sla's in series
      the motors are from a power chair
      the frame i welded strong enough for me to sit on and move at a good speed

      the computer is running off a separate battery bank. im not sure how much amps the computer setup will draw, but the m2atx is powering a p4 with 20gb hd and wireless card, thats about it maybe for a good hour
