Hello, the battery from Robotis has a capacity of 1000mAh. Can I use higher capacity LIPO batteries such as those with 1800mAh (11.1V) to supply power for my robot? Will this cause damage to the controller or dynamixels?

If i remember correctly, the battery that comes with bioloid has a low-voltage cutoff circuit under the plastic coating. If you find same size battery with higher power spec just make sure you add a low voltage warning or cutoff.
