Battery Consumptions

During the season I began to wonder about the life cycle and utilization of the batteries that the robots use current.

As Dean spoke both this year and last about the importance of the environment and the need to plan for the future. I thought back to the time I was in Scouting and all the program taught be about being conservation minded. For that reason I am beginning to investigate the batteries we use and would like anyones help that can.

Thus, I am examining the life cycle of the batteries we used this year for power. I am looking for either decrease in power returns and increase in charge cycles or other issues over the course of useage.

If any teams did research on their battery useage, or the life cycle of the batteries I would greatly appreciate them sharing the information. To help me.

I will share any data I gather for the betterment of all teams next year.

With Respects,
