Jaystepher presents: Lego Power Functions! Power Functions Motor Set. Set number 8293. Contains 10 pieces. Recommended for ages 9 through 16. So it appears we get lights, motor, a switch, and a battery box. Let’s check it out. Nothing else in the box? So here’s all the various
packages we get in the set. We get some gears and cogs. Wires. Let’s check it out. The Power Functions Motor Set is all unpacked. So here’s the power box. Now this does take six AA batteries,
and they are not included. Let’s talk a little bit about this. I have it in off-mode. There is a forward and reverse, but you want be careful. You don’t want to leave this on because
this LED will run down your battery in time. Also the connectors are polarized so you can’t these cables in backwards. Really rigid construction. You also get the switch. Another polarized connection. Center’s off, forward reverse. Really Cool. You get three propeller shafts, two shafts, a large cog, to smaller cogs, and a coupling. Let’s have a look at the LED lights, and these are white LEDs. They just simply slip inside of a Technic brick. Same polarize connection. Really small lights. And we have a small DC motor, and this does go in forward as well as reverse. Same connection. So, I’m going to demonstrate this. Very easy to connect. Connect the lights up. See how bright they are. The cables are a little stiff because it’s new. Turn on the power box, and let’s throw the switch on. So they are pretty bright. They light up the work area pretty great. So these are pretty bright.
I can imagine using these for headlights for maybe the Technic crane, or even maybe a Lego structure. Now let’s take a look at the motor. Simply put this on the switch the same way. Stick a cog and a shaft. That’s forward. Reverse. Motor seems pretty reasonable. This will work good for maybe a lift or to retract a crane. But remember to turn off the
power box when you are done because you do not want to run your batteries considering there are six AA batteries. So this tells me that this is a nine volt box. I know some of the earlier systems
were four-and-a-half volts. This is a nine volt system. So I’m going to be using
this for some new creations. So this is the Lego Power Functions. Set number 8293, contains 10 pieces, and is recommended for ages 9 through 16. If you’re looking into exploring Power Functions, this is the set to get. Little on the high end, but this does have some possibilities. Thank you for watching!
