2 volts. Current Draw Current draw is the amount of current, specified in milliamps or amps, that the motor requires to produce a certain amount of torque. Motors consume different amounts of current depending on how they are operated: • No-load. A motor that doesn't have anything attached to its shaft isn't doing any work and is said to be free-running. No-load current tends to be very low. • Load. As the motor does work, its load and current draw increases. Manufacturers rate the current draw under load using different standards, making it hard to judge a motor using this specification alone.

Voltage. The specified operating voltage of the motor. Most motors can be operated at higher or lower voltages, though extremes should be avoided. Of Fish, Weight Scales, and Torque First a story. Thomas Edison was not only an inventor, he was a businessman. When he learned he was losing money because his phonograph players were being broken in rail shipment, he asked his engineers to come up with a stronger box, one that could withstand being dropped off a loading dock at a train station. Edison was also quite frugal, and given the number of phonographs he sold, he didn't want to make the box too strong, or else he'd spend money unnecessarily.
