I thought I had seen somewhere that you can use a different 12v battery for a power wheels (a Peg Perego Gator, in this case) instead of dropping a 50 spot down on a battery from the manufacturer. Could anyone shed some light on this? I am just looking for a cheaper alternative. Thank you all in advance.

Yes, you can use an aftermarket SLA type battery. See the FAQ for more info. If you use an aftermarket battery you must add an inline fuse or resettable breaker. Only use SLA type batteries, any other kind is too dangerous.

Thank you for the info. I had found some cheaper batteries. It was the "SLA" that made me hesitant. As always, this site is a wealth of information.
