Post Battery question
Hi there,

I just have one simple question: is it possible to keep the NXT run forever when the battery charger is plugged in, or does it have to be off in order to load?

thx, DiMastero

It should run just fine, unless the motors are under constant heavy load.

I had a robotics exhibit running at a museum all summer with several NXTs running continuously (24 hrs/day) while plugged in. They were not extremely loaded, but everything ran fine for 3 months. They were running on the older style Lithium-Ion battery packs (#1678 / 1400 mAh) and I really have not yet addressed any possible battery problems due to having them plugged in for so long. Don't expect to see any issues since Lithium-Ion packs don't have much in the way of memory issues. I'll post back when I get a chance to assess everything.
