Power and battery units are parts that provide the required electrical energy to robots (especially mobile robots) for their actuators like electric motors or electronic parts like microcontrollers or sensors. In power and battery category various kinds of mobile energy sources like batteries, battery charging circuits and adapters, alternative energy tools like solar panels and various battery and power source accessories are listed.
Even though power and battery products can be used in stationary robots, they are essential in mobile robot applications. Since mobile robots change position frequently they can’t be powered by stationary sources, so they need to carry their power sources. Due to that necessity volume, weight and energy capacity features of batteries are important for robot designers.
