Correct charger for omnibot 5402

Postby MeowRobot » Mon Aug 09, 2010 10:21 pm

I've read all over the website about correct chargers for omnibots
negative center
(a plug that fits)
and mAmps of 300-500 ish (i read it on many different websites, but the all had different recomended mA ;/)

i have a universal adapter (1.5v - 12v) (+ or - center switch)
multiple plugs so it can fit many devices.

but it has 300mA only

my question is, if i get a plug that fits, set it to 6v, and - center,
will it work to charge up my omnibot 5402 properly?

That is a good question. The original battery charger that came with the omnibot back in the middle 80's was at 300 mAH.
I can't explain other sites just mine. As I was able to buy better chargers over the years. I changed my F.A.Q to reflect what I was selling.
The higher the mAH rating the faster it will charge. But, the Lead Acid battery doesn't like to get hammered when charging. I wouldn't go any higher then 500 mAH on a changer.

Yes, your charger if set correctly as listed will allow you to charger your robot.
