It could certainly be something else but that was my first guess.

    So my question is would putting the 14 Volt, 3A supply to the Arbotix hurt it or the AX-12's? I know its over their rated voltage, thats why I am asking if anyone has tried it and been ok?

    Its really tough to get a different powersupply when your in Afghanistan...

    14V won't hurt the arbotix -- but could hurt the AX12.
