The Battery Cubelet provides energy to power a construction. It contains two rechargeable batteries and a small power switch. The batteries are removed from the Cubelet for charging, so if you keep a few batteries around, you won't need to stop what you're doing to wait for batteries to charge. You can add as many Battery Cubelets to a robot as you like to keep big robots running at their best. You'll get best results when the Battery Cubelets are equally charged; if one has less charge, it will shut down until the higher-charge Battery Cubelets are at an equal level.
The Battery Cubelet can only be powered by our Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. Replacement batteries and a charger are available.
Anyone can build robots that drive around on a tabletop, respond to light and other objects, and have surprisingly lifelike behavior. Instead of programming that behavior, you snap the Cubelets together and watch the behavior emerge like with a flock of birds or a swarm of bees. Each Cubelet has a tiny computer inside of it and is a robot in its own right. When you put Cubelets together, you're actually making a robot out of several smaller robots. Each Cubelet communicates with its neighbors, so you know that if two blocks are next to each other, they're talking.
