How to switch 12VDC 1.5 amps and 0.3 amps

Hi :)I have to switch some fans on and off electrically but I don't really know how to do it.. I wanted to use MOSFET but is it a good idea ? If yes, which models ? I already worked with relays but it seems to be an "overkilled" solution for this application :p As writen in the title, one will be used with 1.5amps and the other with 0.3amps (12VDC both).Thanks :)

Can an old smartphone be repurposed?

Hello and my heartiest greetings to all reading this,I have this old Nokia Lumia 540 and was wondering whether I could replace the OS with something like the Raspbian to use it with python and utilize all the cool stuff already there in the phone. Is that sort of thing possible?I am totally new to this stuff and hence have no idea about any of it. Please help me out.Cheers. :)
