I have seen posts in the past about using a single LiPo battery to power a BabyO based bot and have myself made one awhile back but it has been a while and I have a few questions.
First I am using a first generation BabyO board with the old motor driver.
I have seen comments on the forum of changing the clock frequency from 20mhz to say 10 by changing the declaration in the code which in turn might save battery power. I also read a post and was told to change to an internal clock setting - specifically the internal default fuse setting i am driving two planetary geared pager motors to control a small chassis that is using o-rings as the tread between the wheels to act like a tank tread.
Are there benefits to changing to an internal clock over external declaration changes? risks? Is it better to define the external frequency to be slower. I don’t need a lot of processing - just trying to get the most out of a single 3.7V LiPo as I know it can be done.
Any thoughts on other settings or if that is the best fuse setting are appreciated. I don’t want to risk locking up the board and I am sure there are trade offs - just looking for some recommendations.
