As you will probably notice in a sentence or two I am new to robotics. I am trying to make a "James Bond" (or Barney Stinson) end table that will use a car window motor to lift a middle portion of the table and a box underneath. This box will be on rails and will hold some LED's, a bottle of scotch, and a couple glasses.
So I have two motor assemblies as well as the window mount but I do not know what to power this with. I have read forums all over and have seen something about H-bridges, and how to modify the motors and such but no real beginner's guide to power. I read one forum that said not to use a computer power source and that a car battery is best for these things but I was hoping there is something AC powered other than a car battery and a battery tender.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
