I'm assuming that you are talking about the final task's battery, and not battery's you plan to use to power your motors.

The battery is a standard 9 volt battery. Please note that the battery's contacts are different from each other, but are on the same size Here are pictures:

If you're talking about batteries to power your motors, any batteries can work, as long as they are under 10 volts. (15 AA batteries add up to 10 volts, which I need to check the rules to see if is legal or not.)
