Quick Transistor question? Answered

I am using pnp transistors as switches.

I finally got a working prototype!!!

Anyway my prototype motor runs at .18A and the real motors I want to run are 3.3A

Can these PNP's handle that?

And can you tell me how to figure that out so I'm not always asking simple questions?

Thanks!

The product at the end of that link is a "Model: 2N3906", this is they type of transistor.

Search for "2n3906 datasheet" and you get to this data sheet
This should tell you what the transistor can handle?

Search RadioShack's transistor range for ones with heat sinks if you need to handle more current than that one
