Description: This is our new Hobby Motor now with a 6mm, 10 tooth, gear to make your basic projects a little simpler to manage. It works well for basic things like making a fan or spinning something pretty fast without much resistance.
The motor has a normal operating voltage range of 1.0 to 3.0VDC but can handle a max load of up to 12VDC and a no load speed of 6600±10% RPM (@1.0V DC, 110mA). More information is available in the spec sheet linked below.
Note: Thought the Datasheet for this Hobby Motor states a max voltage range of 3.0VDC, our supplier has ensured us that it can handle a max load of 12VDC.

This small, light motor was just what I needed for a small project. Good price and the right size. No complaints.
It would be nice though if SparkFun would show spur (or worm wheel) gears that fit (or mesh) with the gear on the motor. Also, I think it would be nice to show bushings that fit d.c. and stepper motors being sold on the website so that you can attach the appropriate gears to the motor if need be.
