Hi Sally,

Batteries are definitely the easiest and safest option. I would recommend looking a lithium polymer batteries, which have a very high power density.

If you are concerned about weight, you can add buoyancy foam to your design to offset the weight. Most professional-level ROVs have quite a bit of flotation for this reason. We’ve got buoyancy foam available here and there are other options out there, especially if you aren’t going very deep.

Hope that helps!
