Step 36 - Prep the Barrel Jack Connection

  • Remove (cut off) the jack from the battery holder, leaving a small amount of wire connected to the holder. 

We will only be using the jack portion for this Step – you can use the battery holder for another project if you so desire.

  • You can use your included Voltmeter here to check the continuity to determine which wire corresponds to the CENTER connector.  The CENTER connector is the positive terminal of the power connector.

Why ask you to do this? Learning how to use your voltmeter gives you a valuable tool when troubleshooing issues that may arise with your Arlo robot – now or in the future.
