Selecting a linear actuator for the T2 z-axis
If you use and L/4R arrangement, I assume it used 4 times the power - burning off watts in the series R and the motor.
This is obviously not in line with your aim of running off a battery. Actually servo drives may be a benefit here in spite of their complexity as the current flows only when needed to accelerate/decelerate the load (regen braking possible?) or to hold position which is usually a much smaller load.
