Extra batteries?

Are we allowed to have extra V5 batteries in our pit?

You can bring anything you want to the pit, but there’s no guarantee that the ref will allow you to plug in a fresh battery if the robot dies mid-match (most likely, they won’t let you). Hope that answered the question.

In fact that would be expressly prohibited by G9.

But yes, you should definitely have extra batteries charging in your pit if possible.

Yep, no mid match swaps. And a reminder when you swap the battery packs in your pits, make sure that it’s plugged in on BOTH ends.

We don’t plug in our battery until the previous match has just ended. Doesn’t kill our battery.
