I am building a robot that sports 2 motors ripped from an old RC car. After many attempts to find the data sheets, nothing of use turned up. So, I ran some test and found this out about the motors.
- Operating Amps(No load): 130 mA
- Max Eff: 500 mA
- Stall: 2.5 A
My question is, How many amps does my motor driver circuit need to be able to handle? Could I get away with a 1A driver, or should my circuit need to be able to handle the full stall amperage?
