6v batteries (was 1200GTO stalls)

The chemistry of a lead-acid battery works at 2.1 volts not 12v.

You get 6v as easily as 12v by combining only 3 cells instead of 6.

6v is a common battery (autos used to be 6v).



There's no problem using 6v and 12v batteries in series for 18v but

finding a good charger is another matter. Deltran could possibly

do it with a PROM change on their 24v charger if it were worth

their while (UL etc means it's not worth their while).

Too bad they don't make a good 6 volt battery, you could put that in

series with a 12v one to get 18v.
