5V Solenoid Help

by phreakinuts on Sun Feb 09, 2020 10:38 pm

So I'm trying to get the basics of the 5V solenoid to work. I can feel that the solenoid pulses, but doesn't seem to have the capability to push/pull correctly unless I assist it by hand. I have it wired as seen in the product images only using an Arduino Uno and using a 1A power supply.

Any suggestions?

What solenoid? I.e. the product id/link? And a link to the circuit picture/diagram. Those will help to figure out what's going on.
