How much current are you pulling? Have you ever measured it? My guess with the battery sizes people here are talking about and the duration they are getting that nearly half an amp is pretty good. Think about it, that's over 5 watts. Of course, every scale and every application has a different need.

In the application I'm using I have a 1.5amp stall (about 800ma running) current on the main motor and my "smoke creator" uses an amp, but it does create a lot of smoke....
