Low volt DC motor (6v) without H bridge


#1

Is there a way to run a small motor without the use of any H bridges, transistors, etc?
(one direction is fine for me)

Because if i put the pins into ground and 5V it works but i cannot regulate the speed.
And when i try to put the +pin into an analog or digital it does not work (but makes noises).

I tried the H bridge node, led, etc…
No luck.

No. If it did work, you would burn out your Arduino pulling too much power through it. The H-bridge with its transistors allows a small signal from the arduino to allow power directly from the battery instead of drawing all the power through the arduino CPU.
