I was told I need to add an IN5408 diode in the following setup but I am unsure where it goes.
2xAA battery pack Positive to On/Off Switch (simple open close circuit switch) To small hobby motor
Negative from hobby motor to battery pack
I am not sure if I need to protect the switch, the battery pack or the motor from feedback. I do know which direction the diode allows flow. I just don’t know where to put it in this circuit.
Thanks for any help in advance. Sorry it’s such a simple question but google returns everything way more complex than what I am doing and it confuses me.
