Will this motor work with 2x C type batterys

Asked by: Chris
Yes 2 x "C" batteries @ 1.5v = 3v Whilst this is within the operational parameters stated on the product listing *• Operating voltage between 1.5V and 3V You also need to factor that this this motor will draw 0.66 of an amp at 1.5 v so will quickly exhaust standard dry cells, ideally it should be run from a power supply unit.

Which battery pack would I need to go with this to make it run?

Asked by: pgilpin
You will need a battery that can supply 3 or more volts. (Try a 5V pack.(the same voltage as USB.))

I wanted to use this with a simple toggle switch and a 1.5V AA battery in a single battery holder. Is your light duty wire compatible for this circuit?

Asked by: Bob T

How can I regulate speed of motor?

You would use a motor speed controller or limit the volts/amps to the item.
