Choosing power supply, how to get the voltage and current ratings?
I have a pc power supply which I modded to use as one for my projects. It's really cool, and I love it.
I just have a question though. Say I am using the 5V port with a device like a regular old dc motor. Can I connect the motor directly to the power supply without regulating it in some way?
What I am trying to say is that the power supply is capable of delivering high current, so are there devices which will actually try to take as much power as possible just because it is available? If so, do I have to control this in any way?
