What is the max length battery this will take?
(Specifically, will it take protected rechargeable 14500 batteries which are approx 53mm long?)

  • This product is designed to be used with AA sized batteries. 

    From wikipedia:

    "An AA cell measures 49.2–50.5 mm (1.94–1.99 in) in length, including the button terminal—and 13.5–14.5 mm (0.53–0.57 in) in diameter. The positive terminal button should be a minimum 1 mm high and a maximum 5.5 mm in diameter, the flat negative terminal should be a minimum diameter of 7 mm."

Our favourite way to power our robots is using AA batteries. They're readily available and pose a lower risk of fire compared to Lithium based batteries, especially when learning about robotics.

To secure your batteries you need a good holder, and we have sizes from 2AA to 10AA to provide the right power for your projects.

This 2x AA holder is good for 2.4 V with rechargeables or 3 V with alkalines.

Each holder comes with a PP3 style connector (the same as on a 9V battery).

To use this holder you will probably need a 9v (PP3) style connection cable, which is not included. If you are going to draw a large amount of current, for example powering motors, we recommend using the 9V High Quality Connector.
