Is there a reason why most servos in arduino based projects use NiMH batteries? Answered
Most circuit designs on instructables seem to use NiMH batteries to power up servos (i've been looking at robotic hand projects). I don't see why we can't use a 6 volt power supply to directly power up the servos (assuming weight and portability is not an issue).
Is there any other reason to use those? And is there any other form of batteries we could look into also?
Finally if i were to use a 6 volt power supply and connect it up to a breadboard that powers up the servos, and then feeds into the arduion's 5 volt input. Would that damage the arduino regulator?
