# Can I replace battery with higher ah?

## Can I replace battery with higher ah?

CAN I SUBSTITUTE A LOWER AMP HOUR (AH) BATTERY WITH A HIGHER ONE? As long as the battery that you are substituting is the same voltage, you can use a higher capacity (higher Ah) battery than the original one.

## Can I use a 12 volt trickle charger on a 6 volt battery?

You can, but you would need a voltage regulator to drop the 12 volts from the charger to 6 volts for the battery. A simple but effective way to do this is to put a 6 volt light bulb in series with the charger.

## Why are 2 6V batteries better than 12V?

Because most 6 volt batteries have a higher number of amp hours for each battery, it makes sense to purchase two 6 volts and wire them in a series – that gives you 12 volts, meeting your electrical system’s needs. The 6-volt batteries last longer than most 12 volt ones, and they are lighter, as well.

## Should I use 6v or 12v?

The 6v batteries cost more and if one dies the system is now 6 volts and unusable. The 12v system is cheaper, but has the advantage of redundancy if one battery dies. So, 6v system has the advantage of capacity and the 12v system has the advantage of redundancy and cost.

## How long will a 6v battery last?

6v batteries will generally hold enough charge for 45-60 minutes of continuous use, while 12v batteries can hold enough for 2-4 hours depending on the power requirements of the installed motor. 24v batteries vary, again depending on the power usage of the motor, but usually last between 2-4 hours.

## How much is an amp hour?

An amp-hour is one amp for one hour, or 10 amps for 1/10 of an hour and so forth. It is amps X hours. If you have something that pulls 20 amps, and you use it for 20 minutes, then the amp-hours used would be 20 (amps) X . 333 (hours), or 6.67 AH.

## Are RV batteries 6V or 12V?

RVs run on 12V power. So how can you run a 12V RV with a 6V battery? There are two ways to wire batteries together, series and parallel.

## How fast does a 12v ride on go?

How fast does a 12 volt go? A 12V power wheel can produce a maximum speed of 4-5 mph. Such cars are suitable for outdoor use as they can easily go through rough surfaces.

## How do I know if my engine is 6 volt or 12 volt?

Check the condensor in the distributer. It may be marked also. If you have a 6 volt battery, try to start it with that. If it is supposed to be 12 volts it will crank real slow or not at all.

## Will a 12v motor run on 6v?

So the short answer is that the motor will run slower, most likely at half of the speed it runs with 12VDC applied. The motor will try to draw whatever current is necessary to run at that half speed (roughly twice the current required when 12VDC is connected).

## Do they make a 6 volt alternator?

We have taken the very reliable Delco 10SI alternator and configured it to provide higher amperage power for 6-volt applications. Now you can replace your old generator and not have to worry about rewiring the rest of the vehicle.

## Are quad batteries 12v or 6v?

ATVs and quads usually require 12v batteries that are often suitable for use in motorcycles as well. A power sports battery needs to provide the high output needed to start your four-wheeler.
