Not including standoffs.
Absolute maximum; higher voltages can permanently destroy the motor drivers. Recommended maximum is approximately 24 V, which leaves a safety margin for ripple voltage on the supply line. Not recommended for use with 24V batteries.
Typical results at room temperature with both channels running at 90% duty cycle.
