There are a lot of DC-DC converter solutions out there.  But the main thing
to remember is that although the motors may draw a small amount of current
at 30 volts say 100ma, they will draw at least 3 times the current on the
9.6V side of the converter.  This could be as much as 300ma per motor in
this example.

two cents

Just wondering if anyone had any ideas for a step up voltage converter. I'd
like to convert 9.6 volts up to 24 to 30 volts or so. Current requirements
would be only to run 2 small gearmotors, about 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches,
Canon quality, sonot a lot of  mAs needed. They are painfully slow at 9.6
very slow at 19.2 v, but they may be adequate at near 30. Any low cost
