Thank you Wawa, that’s what I thought I understood from the datasheet. As you can see by my question, this is really not my field of expertise.
I have another question for you guys since a new problem showed up. I have a project at school in which I need to build a robot who completes different tasks. The more batteries I use, the more points I loose (I can only use AA 1.5V batteries).
So my robot is using 2 12v steppers and a servo (1501mg). I wanted to use 4 AA, to get 6V and transform it to 12V with a DC-DC converter. Everything was going fine until I plugged in the servo. It is pulling so much power that the Arduino keeps shutting down.
According to your experience, would 6 AA batteries be sufficient to power the motors and keep the Arduino from shutting down?
Thank you all for your answers.
