Battery back-up option for the DYNOmite-Pro boards utilizes six AAA batteries and/or one 9-volt style battery. Different battery materials (both rechargeable and non-rechargeable types) can be utilized to get the best combination of run time, convenience, and cost.
Rechargeable batteries are automatically charged whenever the DYNOmite is operating from its AC (or an external DC) power supply. Failover to the backup battery is automatic whenever that power is removed.
Estimated-life table (below) offers a relative comparison of the run times for various battery materials. On-board AAA and removable 9-volt style batteries can be utilized.
