[SOLVED] Powering a mixed bag of servos.

quick question about powering servos (sorry).
I am about to create the setup as pictured below:

I am planning to use a battery holder for 4xAA 1.5v batteries for the power supply. Everything hooked up to a breadboard.

However the 2 servos are different models. they both have the same operating voltage, but they draw a different current:

Operating Voltage: 4.8-6.0 Volts
Current Drain (4.8V): 8.8mA/idle and 350mA no load operating
Current Drain (6.0V): 9.1mA/idle and 450mA no load operating

Operating Voltage: 4.8-6.0 Volts
Current Drain (4.8V): 8mA/idle and 150mA no load operating
Current Drain (6.0V): 8.8mA/idle and 180mA no load operating

My question is - will these servos work with the diagram that I have, or do I need something which will regulate the current?

And yep, I'm new to this!


There is no problem in powering different servos from the same power supply as long as they work at the some voltage. And as long as your servo power supply is powerful enough to power the servos it will work fine.

Thanks Bajdi! Will give it a go then and I may even post the results on here if it all works out...
