I can't speak specifically to the A8, but I'm using 2130s with standard NEMA17 motors. They are set at 650mA and as long as I have a fan on them they do well.

Thanks for the support Dik, but I'm sure Dave meant it positive.
I did take no offense.

Back to the topic.
I've learned that the 2108 driver is better when you use the original motors, the 2130 can't handle the higer currents the motors draw and will be missing steps.
Can anyoune shed some light over this?

best regards Piet.
Hi guys,
Sure no offense was intended! :)

Where did you find this info Piet?
I must admit that I have no long-term experience with these drivers as my printer isn't finished yet.
Maybe the next days I can wire my RAMPS+TMC2130s to the Anet and try that.
If I do it, I'll reply here in this thread so you can find it!

Have a nice day,
Dave

Didn't mean anything by it, just that I don't see myself as elderly. My mother (89) is elderly...
