Anyone know what voltage the motors that vibrate PS2 controllers operate on? Answered

I want to use the small motors I salvaged from a playstation 2 controller in a project. I need to know what voltage they operate on so I don't fry them.

Low I should think. Test them with very low, and keep increasing until they spin about as fast as they do in the controller.

Approximately 3V, which is two double A batteries.
