Hello All! What is everyone (especially in US) using for power supply’s for their inMoov? All the info I can find so far is outdated links mostly from 2016.
I have my finger kit going but not enough juice for the HK15298’s I picked up. Figured I might as well figure out my power needs now. Especially since I just finished printing the hand/wrist/forearm.
The HK15298B are high voltage units with plenty of power for most of the locations, I use 7.4v LiPo 3000mah batteries placed throughout the robot to keep the leads short, and a bench power supply for testing. I built a changing system that uses a 12V input, and buck/boost/charge for the batteries. Works fine so far. The Servos need lots of current and stable voltage, so don’t go cheap here.
