I am currently working on a project on an automatic hand sanitiser dispenser. For this, I used LM358 and implemented an IR sensor. The output current of this IC (10mA) is passed to IRFZ44N and it amplified (70-80mA). But the problem is that the water pump requires current from 130 to 220mA. So, is there any way to amplify the current to the desired range? Or do breadboard implementation lead to current losses? If possible, should I make any changes to the load resistance to amplify the current? Here is the circuit diagram for the same.
