LEGO Motors

There are presently three different LEGO Technic Motors, all of which use a 9v power supply and use standard LEGO style electical connectors.

The original Expert Builder motor (from set 960/870) is a 4.5v motor and uses a different style of power connection. It is not directly compatible with the Handy Board unless you use a motor power supply separate from the 9v NiCad pack powering the board. Another early Expert Builder motor (set 880) used a 12V supply and the same connectors as the 960/870 motor.

Note: S@H is short for Shop at Home, LEGO's mail order service for the U.S. They carry sets not available in the general retail stores, as well as spare parts kits. They can be reached at 1-800-453-4652.
