Greetings Everyone,

I just found this site and can't believe the loads of information available.
I tried searching but maybe one of you can answer my question more directly.
I am looking to purchase a few of these motors

for some props i intend to build this month. My question is would I be able to power multiple motors off of one of these wallwarts?

Do these motors pull only the amperage they require or will a wallwart with too high an amperage cause them to burn out faster; as would be the case when stringing too few leds on the same wall wart.

Thanks.

With motors, your only concern is that the wall-wart can provide enough current (at the correct voltage, of course). If the wall wart (or any other power supply) can provide more current than you motor needs, then you are good to go. If you use more than one motor, just add them (current) all together and make sure your power supply can deliver the current (best rule is that you supply twice the current that is needed - all at the same voltage). HTH
