Hello all.


I have recently ordered some Tamiya Torque tuned Motors, and I was reading up on them and found out that they require 3v and require 3-6 amps each/

I was wondering if I'm using AAs, is wiring up two AAs in parallel enough amperage for the motors?

The answer depends on the type of AAA batteries you're using, but even with lithium primaries or Eneloop AAA, 3-6 amps is a lot of current draw for such a small cell. So if it works, you won't be getting the best performance and will be reducing the life of your battery (if rechargeable).
