I recently went to a tournament in Granada Hills and I saw a team with a modded battery in their joystick. I will attach a picture.
The had two aluminum blocks in the top battery ports and the two blocks had a wire attached to each leading to a connecter like on the end of the Power Expander. Connected to that they had these batteries: http://www.vexrobotics.com/products/accessories/power/276-2220.html
I have a few questions about this.
- Is it competition legal?
- If my team were to do this would we be able to make our own Joystick battery “door” in a 3D Printer?
- Would the Joystick run properly on that size battery rather then the normal 6 AAAs?
