I purchased a Waveshare Motor Hat because it has the nice Pi Zero size, extra long headers, and already has headers and blocks soldered, all for less than $13. https://www.waveshare.com/motor-driver-hat.htm I didn’t realize when I bought this that it stated: Power supply: 6V~12V (VIN terminal) This seems outside of standard 5V 4AA cases and most portable LiPos. I’m just powering two DC Drive Motors (drive with 3-6VDC, 200-400 mA run, 1.5A hard stall)on this Adafruit round mini platform: https://www.adafruit.com/product/3216
I’m pretty new to electronics so apologies if I’m missing something basic. Advice on power options is appreciated.
I don’t think this is a repeat post as many of the others wanted a single pi and hat power option. I just want to figure out what works for the hat and motors and that’d fit on a small chassis. Thanks.
