Connecting Multiple Servos to Single Battery Pack

Wed May 06, 2015 12:26 pm

Hi,

I wish to connect 17 Servos to a single NiMH Battery Pack. I would like to avoid soldering the wires together. Are there any types of connectors which I could use to connect all the Servos to the Battery? The Servos have a Standard Connector.

Thank you.

Joseph

You could use a breadboard, and attach the battery to the side positive / ground rail.

Or you could also use external boards:
