I kinda figured it was common sense that 9V wouldn't support 6V + 5V = 11V. I just thought there might be some kind of extra black magic in there that would allow 9V to power 11V worth of components.What would you suggest I use for 11V+ worth of power?
I am using a 6V power source for a gas sensor I'm using. Then I'm using the on board 5V to power an LCD I am using. So, I am using two power sources. My question is if I wanted to use a 9V battery, would that be able to power both components without needing to use a USB cable? I want to make my gas sensor more mobile and portable. I don't know much about power sources, and whether or not something is getting enough power. Thanks!
The gas sensor alone is rated at 900mW, ie about 150mA, which is beyond the ability of a small 9V battery topower properly (if at all).
