  • 9v batter?

    Would a 9v battery be sufficient in testing the m10000 by itself? (regulated through an m1-atx of course)

    do you mean a 9v lantern battery, or a 9v "stick-on-your-tongue-for-fun-as-a-retarded-kid" battery?

    From the description in the MP3Car store, it can go between 6-24 volts input and a short burst of 5.7v for crank. I guess if you are in that area, it will be ok...

    Why do you ask?

      Running some tests at home with no atx power supply to really borrow-and yes im referring to the retarded kid's battery. So you suppose this would be efficient in the short run?

        I suspect you will have a very dead battery very quickly.... try it though. Tell us the results

        Yes, you should search... and Yes, It has been covered before!

          Possibly could work, for about 2-3 seconds and then shutoff.

          In little robotic competitions, we used 9v to power them. We had about 8 of them, and we got 1 good run out of them, and then they didn't have enough juice.

          9v don't carry much power. I would just pick up an old PSU for like 5 or 10 bucks. If you can't then old car battery. If you can't again then get a lantern battery from like RadioShack if you have to.

            Maybe if you stick say.....fifty of them together.....!

            You need not only volts, but amps too. I am not sure what the amp rating on one of those batteries are but it cannot be more than a few milliamps....You probably will need 4 to 5 amps (at 9 volts) to give you enough power to go through M1-ATX and then to the mobo...

              just thought of something else. The built in controller for turning off voltage if it drops to much would be tripped always, so i don't think it will even power up.
