  • Thanks a lot for your reply. That’s what I thought, too, and was not sure why the parts list for the project has a 4xAA battery holder and not a bigger one.

  • First, thanks a lot for starting this projects series, I am sure it will be awesome. Second, a question: as far as I know, the RedBoard needs at least 7V to be powered through the barrel jack; in the wishlist, there is a 4xAA battery holder - is this going to be enough? I never tried powering an Arduino other than using USB so this is probably a silly question but just want to make sure. Thanks in advance for your answer!
