Running a DC motor from ecig mod

Hello friends,

As you will see I'm new here, I'm from the UK...recently started to get bored so have decided to start this hobby of messing around robotics and metalworking/woodworking (nothing to heavy as of yet) and selling my projects for extra income. Really starting to enjoy it as well.

I have a question though, from the title, I'd like to know if I can run a 12v dc motor (taken from a battery drill) with a ecig mod. It uses about 50mA when running as doesn't have any load and pulls about 15+ A when under load and anything in-between.

I have a an old smok alien mod, the idea of this isn't to keep running the motor constantly and putting in under load but of a testing facility to quickly plugin----test motor----unplug/solder----test----unplug/solder----test, and so on.

I was wondering if I connect wires to where the coil (RBA) would normally go would this spin the motor when I press the fire-up button on the mod, I ask this as I already have all the equipment but also this mod is easy to charge, small, easy on/off, etc...

What do you guys think?
