Max Current VBoost

I am atempting to mount n Arduino board atop the 3pi for a bunch of sensor I/O as well as controlling a servo, with the 3pi acting as a slave to drive around.

What is the maximum current I can safely draw from Vboost to power the arduino? It requires 6-20V input. At 9.2V my components will draw an absolute max of around 240mA. In reality it should never reach these levels.
Trying to figure out if I’ll need to add extra batteries or not.


Hi, Michael.

Please refer to the FAQ on the 3pi robot page. There is a question about adding peripherals to your 3pi. Please let me know if you have additional questions not answered by the FAQs.
