My wife picked up a used Barbie Powerwheels jeep. The motors run on 12v, but I'm not sure how much current they draw. I did find one guy on the net that is using a Pololu driver that provides 14A continuous and 30A Max current.Anybody have any experience with these motors? I'd like to build my own driver - would like reccomendations for links to plans. I haven't even taken the motors off of the jeep yet, but Ive had trouble finding what exactly the current draw for these things is.
Thanks - you talked me out of building that driver, which would have been a bad idea. I have 0 experience building H bridges - so starting with a smaller one would definitely make more sense. If I have to spend a lot on the motor driver, I may not even want to do it. I've read the Powerwheels motors are pretty inefficient.
