recently i found that the problem with my project is that the motor consumes more than 1 amper (with no load),
because i tried using the L293D it didnt really work well (that's an understatement).
since i would really like to save the trouble of building my own high current H-bridge, i thought the L298N can do the job.
so after measuring i found out that the motor consumes:
1.5 amper with no load.
2-2.5 with the nominal load.
