Controlling two motors.

I need to control two motors using my arduino through the L298N motor controller. My motors are both 4.5V each. I just want to know how many volts my battery needs to be? Thanks

Sounds like you just answered your own question. Is that "4.5V" the motor's input voltage rating? Where did you get that number?

What is the battery going to power? Anything other than the motors?

Hi, If your motors are 4.5V, you will need at least 6V to power them through a L298 motor controller because you will drop up to 2V through the controller.

If only there were a cheap, easy to use battery case…
