. How many amps do the motors pull? . How many motors will be running at one time? . What else on the ROV needs electrical power and how much? . Any volume or weight limitations? . How long between recharges?

-Not sure how many amps, but the thrusters take 12volts each -Two or three motors will run at a time -The cam and lights, I'm using two 6v batteries -There's no weight limitations, the batteries for the thrusters will not be installed in the rov, there's not enough room -I don't no what u mean between charges Thanks for responding

. An automotive or marine battery should work.

if it is less then 1.5 ft in length, get a Li-ion or Li-poly battery if you need to power a full-sized submarine, go with a couple atv batteries can you connect the motors in parallel? it should save you some money, since you'll need less volts, more amps
