One quick question

What is the max continuous current of the L98 motor driver?
Here's the datasheet:

I can only find the max current surge/peak: 2A

It says 'non repetative' is 3A (100 us) and repetative (80% pwm) is 2.5A and i believe 2A is continous (they call it DC operation).

What you gonna use it for?
