Is your HPCB 6V Pololu Micrometal Gearmotor 50:1 compatible with the L298D Full Bridge Driver

I am planning to get a 50:1 HPCB 6V Micrometal Gearmotor but I am a little bit scared if it wouldn’t work on my L298D Full Bridge Driver, will it work or not? Thanks :smiley:


We recommend choosing a driver that has a continuous current rating equal to or greater than the stall current of the motor you want to use (in this case 1.6A at 6V). It looks like that driver can do 2A per channel, so it might be fine, but you might also consider some of our newer drivers that have extra features:

You might especially consider our DRV8838 Single Brushed DC Motor Driver Carrier:


Thank you very much! :slight_smile:
