Hi. I am just starting out with the USB Robotics with the Boe-Bot kit. I've gotten to page 59 (printed manual) "Finding the connection Instructions for your Carrier Board".There is a "i" paragraph describing what to do with Board of Education Rev B, but I believe it is outdated for my USB Board B because I do have a 3-position switch and jumpers for power.
1) What is the correct jumper settings for my USB Board of Education Rev B Board?
2) Do I continue to follow REV C instructions throughout the manual?
I was surprised to learn that my AA Nimhs were no good due to there lower voltage. I have always tried to use Nihms because discarded old batteries are bad for the enviroment. The Board has a 9 volt batterie socket but the manual states "Use only supplies with DC output voltage ratings between 6 and 7.5 v".
3) Is it ok to use a 9 volt Nihm batterie for Robotics with the Boe-Bot?
