battery choice for DC motor?

I wanted to know what battery would be the best for running this motor (Loading...) through a SN754410NE Quad Half H-Bridge IC. I know I want a 12 volt battery, but I’m not sure what battery would be best in terms of current output.

Thanks!

The best answer to that is:

The biggest battery that your project can tolerate.

DC motors suck the life out of batteries faster than you can say recharge :slight_smile:

If your project has room for it you should consider a motorcycle or scooter battery.
