  • 4x m4x16 inner hex head screw
  • 4mm hex key

Position the battery box on the battery metal plate. Align the both assemblies holes. Insert each of the m4x16 screws in the box holes.
Tighten the screws using a 4mm hex key.
Make sure each of the screws protrudes equally on the other side.

Step 4: Power connector and battery cover

Prepare:

  • 1x power cable (3pin female socket with a green wire and push connectors)
  • 1x power cable nut (needs to be detached from the cable beforehand)

  • 1x battery cover

Push each of the plastic screws in the corresponding holes of the battery cover.
Insert the power cable in the hole in the cover. Thread the cables.
Push the power cable socket with one hand.
Tighten the socket nut with the other hand.

Step 5: Cable connection

Prepare:

  • Step 3 assembly
  • Step 4 assembly
  • 1x battery pack

Table of connections:

  • power connector green wire to (+) pin on the button
  • power connector black-with-white-stripe wire to NO pin on the button
  • power connector black wire to (-) pin on the button
  • battery red wire to C pin on the button
  • batter black wire to power connector black wire
Connect the green cable from the battery cover to the + pin of the button.
Connect the white-and-black cable from the battery cover to the NO pin of the button.
Connect the black cable (female connector) from the battery cover to the - pin of the button.
Position the battery pack in the box.
Connect the battery pack red cable to the C pin of the button.
Connect the battery pack black cable (female connector) to the power cable black cable (male connector). Slide the rubber cover to make the connection tight.

Step 6: Battery box cover

Prepare:

  • Step 5 assembly
  • 1x foam
  • Philips cross-headed screwdriver

Cover the battery pack with the foam.
Push the batter pack into the battery box. Push the remaining cables in the box. Make sure nothing is protruding over the box outline, so it won't be pressed between the box and the box cover in the next step.
Close the box cover.
Tighten the cover screws with a cross-headed screwdriver.

Nice and tidy. Now it's time to put everything together.

After this Task you'll end up with 3x m5x10 inner hex head screws that will be used to mount the battery pack to the Rover in theTask 8.
