  • The Parallax Arduino ShieldBot comes now with a 5-cell AA pack, not the 4-cell AA pack shown in the photo. This was an upgrade we introduced after SparkFun started stocking the robot, so it’s Parallax' mistake (not theirs). Here are the resources for the robot, too http://learn.parallax.com/ShieldRobot. - Ken G

  • I wish you guys (SFE) carried just the plain board. I already have a BOE-BOT chassis and sensors for it, and I would love one of those boards

  • Does this come with a 5x AA battery holder or a 4x AA battery holder? It’s pictured here with a a 5x, but the Parallax site shows a 4x.

    • That picture was taken from what we actually had in stock, but there is no guarantee that’s what we will continue to get.
