My Code Crackers teams wants to add counter weight to the back of their
robot to keep it from tipping due to a front heavy attachment.  They asked
if they could use a spare NXT battery since it is manufactured by Lego.  In
looking at rule 4 - Equipment, it depends on how batteries are classified.
To clarify if this is within the rules, are Lego batteries considered
electric or non-electric?  


"REGULAR ELEMENTS - You may use as many non-electric LEGO elements as you
like, including pneumatics, rubber bands,

and string, and they may be from any source or set

HARRY POTTERT/etc.). Exception: Factory-made wind-up/pull-back "motors" are
not allowed.
