Battery Included in 25 lbs of Spare Parts?

Hello, everybody. I was curious as to whether batteries are included in the 25lbs of spare parts that we are able to bring to the competitions. After all, batteries weight about 12 lbs, so they would take up a majority of the weight from spare parts.

Thank you!!

I think the answer on that would be NO. Otherwise teams who bring multiple batteries wouldn’t be able to bring any spares.

The 25 pound limit applies only to fabricated parts, not to unmodified COTS parts. Since you are not allowed to modify the batteries, they are not fabricated parts, and don’t count towards the 25 pounds.
