Motors

Motors are components to transform electrical energy into movement. Many motors will work for Squishy Circuits. We have found motors work best that have a very low current draw (~30mA) and are rated for about 5 volts.

Feel free to view our short video on Motors and Squishy Circuits

This is the motor we like best. It is a bit larger, so it is easy to handle and work with.

We attach terminals to the ends of all of our motors to ensure proper electrical connections.

If you find a motor you like to use, feel free to recommend it to us!
