so all You really have to do is wire a 12 and 6 or three sixes in series and find a place to mount them. No gear or motor mods are necessary for that kind of upgrade. I'm considering going from 12 to 18v to spice things up but am very much a begginer
sounds easy enough. the only problem I foresee is finding a place to mount these things. Have you guys found it easier with the three 6's or a 12 and a six. Looking at some of these pics and diagrams Im getting the impression that 3 6s is more of a space saver.
I spotted an 18 volt battery on the kidswheels.com page and was wondering what would be better the 18v or three 6v? It was a little more expensive than the gruber batteries. Mounting and wiring the battery is the only advantage I can think of. Which one would hold a charge longer? How long does it take for these sla batteries to lose charge during storage and what is the life expectancy?
Chopper...do you know which model it is and if most all the Wal Marts caryy this charger? I got the $17 model that charges at 1.5 Amps, but maybe I will get this one instead. Is it automatic? Is 2A per gruber battery too much? I have 3 6v Gruber 12ah that I was going to charge 12v(2 in series) and then 6v separately. If I could charge all three at once this would be better.
They sell it at walmart for $25. With that charger, you can charge all 3 6 volt batteries at the same time. Just hook them up parallel and charge them at 4amps (and yes it is auto shutoff). I do it all the time. If you want to do one at a time, just use the 2 amp setting. And keep that smaller charger you have, it's nice to be able to do multiple batteries at once.
