Quite simple, feed the motor from the 9V before the regulator.Nigel Goodwin, I am not sure what you mean.
The output of the voltage regulator is 5V and the input is 9V. Bad idea feeding it from the output which is 5V??
I't a bad idea feeding the motor from the regulator output.
It will still run red hot, and require a massive heatsink - there's no need to have a regulated feed to the motor.I am trying to find a voltage regulator that can handle 2A if anyone find something let me know
