Step 9 - Mount Battery Pack

Mounting the Battery Pack

For All ActivityBot robots.

Parts needed for this step:

  • (1) battery pack, 5-cell AA (#753-00007)
  • (2) white nylon flat-head slotted screws (#710-00046)
  • (2) 1-inch round aluminum standoffs (#700-00060


  • Thread all the servo cables through the grommet hole to the top of the chassis to keep them out of the way.
  • Insert the battery pack inside the chassis with its plug end toward the grommet hole.
  • The fit will be tight. You may need to insert one side and then push on the other side to snap it into place.

  • Find two WHITE NYLON flat-head screws.
  • Insert these screws into the holes inside of the battery pack that is closest to the corners, and out through the chassis.
  • GENTLY twist a 1-inch metal standoff into each screw to hold it in place. Make it just snug but do not over-tighten or you may strip the screws.

  • Thread the battery pack cable through the grommet hole to the top of the chassis.
