Pulse Motor On A Stick

This is simple electric pulse motor mounted on a ‘craft stick’. I show it here running on a pre charged 2.7v / 5F supercapacitor and a 1.5 v button cell. For some strange reason the motor will run for 7 hours on the tiny button cell. The lowest run voltage I have seen is less than 100 millivolts but it needs about 1 milliamp. The little ‘stick motor’ is setup so I can test low power sources such as indoor solar panels and homemade batteries.

Here is the link to the reed switch:
