I am very new to the word of electrical circuits.
As I finally decide to learn about electricity and componants, I bought this kit to start in a fun way:
The motor according to the seller is a DC 1.5-3V and 24000 rpm. So a single AA 1.5V battery should be enough for this motor.
I connected 4 motors in parallel to have more torque in the system but I cannot figure out what battery voltage should be the best for this circuit. As the motor is 3V rated, the 4 motors are connected in parallel it should only need a 3V power source to run (i.e. 2 AA 1.5v batteries.)
The 4 motors are connected in parallel with the power source and there is no other component in the circuit.
When I use 2 AA 1.5V batteries the motors run for a very short period and slow and stop, and when I use x4 AA 1.5 batteries the motors run but the wire starts heating a lot.
What is happening here? How do I work out the right voltage for this circuit
I have been searching the answer on this forum for 3 days but I'm still not sure.
Here is the picture of my setup: As you see on the picture, the wires were so hot that the case with 4 AA batteries melt and the yellow connector moved away...
