So far in my bots Ive been reusing the same 2 transistors that I got with my original ARDX kit.

 According to

Im using these:-

A “NPN bipolar junction transistor used for general purpose low-power amplifying or switching applications”.

 I’m using them as switches for my motors BUT I think the power is too high for these transistors.

(At the moment I’m powering my bot with 4xAAs) and the motors often stay stuck on instead of switching on & off.

But I’ve just bought these Battery Packs to lower the power a little:-

But I need to go back for these snap-on battery connectors:-

and Im wondering which of these would be suitable for my use?
