What are these three things attached to my toy motor?
So I got a wild hair that I wanted to help my son build a wind powered LED. I have a toy motor and on the back are 3 solder spots attached in a sort of triangle with wire and attached on each “leg” of the triangle are 3…... pods? I don’t know what you call them. I don’t know if they are resistors or what?
Long story short, I’d like to know how I need to hook up the LED to the motor to make it light when the motor spins. I’m not very good with electronics as you can tell. =)
