Materials for the Simplest Electric Motor

  • AA Battery
  • Insulated copper
  • Neodymium magnet


One AA battery is enough, you can use another type but then make sure the diameter of the coil is the correct size.

Insulated copper wire

I used copper wire from an old network cable, is 24 AWG (0.51 mm diameter) .

You can extract one of the different wires that are inside.

Neodymium magnet

Under the battery, you must place the magnet . This is the hardest piece to find, you can get it on RadioSack, Amazon, Ebay or just to get the magnets from some headphones or a old radio speakers.

If are preared for a hard project, you can see here another great project: How to build a Simple Electric Motor
