Where can we order some backup 120amp breakers for the robot?? It's not listed at Innovation First's website.

Im in the process of looking for these also, but I believe one of the team updates said that there was some kind of truck store that carries them. It was between updates 12-14 i believe. Ill check into that and get back with you

We had a very hard time tracking them down. The breaker is apparently discontinued but, by sheer luck, one of our mentors found one for us. Try searching truck repair places for one. Apparently, they're an automotive part. I tried searching for them on the web, but after seraching for 2+ hours, I gave up.

Good luck.

breakers, and will sell them directly to FIRST teams. The Bussman part number is 185120F.
To order by telephone, call 1 800-989-9632, ext. 153.

It may be impossible to find the exact battteries that FIRST provided, as they are deep cycle. Since you aren't allowed to use any batteries except the ones given in the kit, it doesn't matter if you have different ones for practice, though.

My expert internet searching found that Custom Marine Services out of South Carolina has the Bussmann 120 HI-Amp breakers, part no. 185120F also. They are in-stock and are $42.00 ea. apparently they are also used in boats, the guy was real nice and confused on why so many robotics teams we're ordering 1 ea. of these from him :p but I explained it all to him, and he said keep on ordering!!
