I have an Arduino and an ArduMoto. I want to use that to power 8V motors with a 17V battery (using PWM).
It says for the Ardumoto that the VIN used to power the motors is the VIN of the Arduino (limited at 12V). But there is on the Ardumoto a VIN input, with written on the side :
VIN Max 18V.
I wonder if I can plug in a 17V battery on this, without a risk for the Arduino ?
