    Hello I am using an arduino uno and I want to run two stepper motors off an ardafruit stepper shield for arduino v2 kit - v 2.3. The stepper motors are 12v 350ma will I require a power supply for the stepper shield or will it run off the arduino uno power once it's connected to the stack

    So I will need the power supply connected to the arduino. Then an additional power supply for the stepper shield. What sort of power supply would you recommend to run the two 12v motors ?
