In light of this thread:

  1. Would using any non-VEX battery pack for any decorative features (lights, etc.) be allowed? (I don’t think so, but just wanted to know)
  2. Would using non-VEX LEDs as a decorative feature be legal, if they were powered through the VEX controller? (i.e. for a glow under the robot)

This would not be legal. Non-VEX components, even if non-functional, may not be powered via the VEX Microcontroller.

Thank you!
