Question about MagLite - Mag Charger System 110v (M) Model - RX1019

My maglite magcharger will not charge the batteries any more. The batteries are 6 volt but there is 12 volts coming into them from the charging cradle. Is something wrong with the charging cradle?

Check the output voltage on the power transformer that plugs into the wall. It should be about 7.5v and if that is what it says the it will be defective if the output is actually 12.dc. But if that is what isays it should be then you need to make sure that it is the right power supply.

Thanks cwa3613 but I am not using the original power transformer that came with the unit when new. It stopped working years ago. I have since been running 12 volts directly to the charging cradle from my auto cigarette lighter outlet, and the plug that attaches to the charge cradle. For a long time I have charged it this way, but I never measured the output of the cradle. But I do not think it should be 12 volts. (the battery pack is 6 volt0

12v battery won't charge replaced inverter and battery got 13.6v coming out of the inverter and only 12 at the battery

inverter problem as it is a required voltage of 14.5 volts to charge a 12 battery ( a fully charged battery is actually 13.2 volts as 6 cells of 2.2 volts each = 13.2 volts )

I have shumacher se 82-6 battery charger and iam trying to charge my Chevy s-10 battery that is a interstate model mt-75 what setting do I put it in 6v 6a or 12v 2 a or 12v 6 a please help

12 volt 6 amps to quickly charge it from dead/flat or very low.

12 volt 2 amps as a trickle charge to maintain the battery when you are not using the vehicle for an extended time.

How to wire rhe batterys for 24 volts... Example pos. To pos. Or neg. To pos. Ther are two batterys 12 volts

if you want the same voltage but with increased capacity connect positive to positive and negative to negative on each successive battery ---connected in parallel
example 6 X 12 batteries each of 200 crank hours will be equal to 12 volts and 1200 crank hours ( good for mobile fridges , winches , battery hoists etc)
if you want to increase voltage in the bank then connect positive to negative for each successive battery ---connected in series
for example
with 6 X 12 batteries of 200 crank amps you will have 6 times the 12 volts which equals 72 volts and the current flow is increase from 200 crank amps to exceed the 1200 crank amps because of the electrical principles and formula I think it works out to be around 72 times the 200 crank amps ( I am sure that there are mathematicians out there that will adjust the sum to make it correct)
However I think that you get the idea
when charging batteries it is always positive to positive with the battery leads to the first battery in the bank and the difference is if in parallel the charger has to be big enough the charge at the accepted rate of the batteries ( 12 volts charge at 14.5 volts and around 20 amps an drop back as the batteries charge
when the batteries are in series it all changes and best talk with a good battery supplier as to how it is set up and if you need to change the charging circuit and equipment

Okay, I'm working on a scooter for my nephew that originally came with (2) 12 volt 12Ah batteries minus the charger. and I know I need to replace them with (2) batteries of the same 12 volts and lets

not exact, to charge apropiate needs 10% more than nominal voltage. if not, will not charge the batteries.
And the charger its very important because you can over charge the battery.An example,if you have a 12 Amps Batteries each one if you put it in series will be 24 Volts.at parallel conection will be 12 volts but the double of Amps.
At serial connection will be 12 Volts the amps will be the same but the volts will be 24.

The charger at 12 Volts must be 13.8-14.5 DC Volts and divide the Amps in Hours.
The charger at 24 Volts must be 26-28 Volts. to charge well.

The charger for 12 amps batt example must charge 2 amps per hour at 6 hours = 12 Amps.(2 Amps Charger by 6 Hours Charging= 12 Amps.(Fully Charged.
3 Amperes Charger needs 4 Hours to charge 12 amps Batt.
5 Amperes Charger needs 2 Hours charging an a quarter
All of this is at DC Current.

Luck.

My 6d maglite keeps blowing the bulb

6D Maglite? As in 6 D cell batteries?

1-1/2 Volts (Each battery), times 6 = 9 Volts.
Using the proper bulb?

The original is a Krypton bulb. (No, I didn't make the name up)

Guess what happens if you put a 3 Volt bulb with 9 Volts?

Starts with a jump but cuts off soon as cables are disconnected

Check your batteries voltage you need at least 12 volts.If you don't have 12 volts then put the battery on a 2-4 amp charge for 6-8 hours.Then if the battery does'nt have 12 volts get a new battery.If your battery has 12 volts afterwards and still cuts off then your alternator is faulty.With the engine running your alternators power wire should show 13-15 volts coming out.

How do you charge the 12 volt battery with a 6 volt charger

• A 6 Volt charger will charge a 12 Volt battery, it will just take twice the time to get the 12 Volt battery to full charge as a 12 Volt charger would take. V*I=W. It will take up to 36 hours to get a full charge from near dead but it will work just fine.

Battery dies after a few minutes

Is this a toy? Is this equipped with deep cell batteries? Checked the water? Check the voltage of each battery in the pack ... should be 6 volts each ... charger putting out? Check while charging ... should be 25+ volts (make sure you measure DC.

If you have a battery that is particularly low ... it will have to be charged independently ... If this is the case, with a 6 volt charger - charge that battery. If you have two batteries that measure low ... you can charge with a 12 volt battery. You will not have to disconnect anaything to do this ... just watch what you are doing ... do not use the unit charger AND the 6 or 12 volt charger at the same time.

CONVERT FROM 6VOLT TO 12VOLT SYSTEM on my 1995 bajaj auot rickshaw rear engined

only do this if the parts are made to let you do it? the charging systen is still going to be at 6 volts no hope of charging a 12 volt battery is there? and the ignishion coial is 6 volts as well, has it got a starter fitted??? well if it has thats also 6 volts? stick 12 volts in it its going to burn out prity fast now then? still wont to go over to 12 volts????

Wont keep a charge

Hi,

You should be able to get over 12 volts from the charging system of the lawnmower. I would think once it is running, you should get 12.8 to just over 13 volts dc to adequately charge your battery. If you have less then 12 v power output from your chargiing system, well then the charging system is not working properly.

Of course, if the battery is defective and wont hold a charge, you can test that be taking the battery out of the machine and checking the voltage. It should be 12 volts or slightly better. If you let it sit overnight and it drops substantially, well it is likely not holding a charge and draining internally. If it does not have 12 volts to begin with and your charging system is ok, well then it is likely defective.

Also, you can use the glass hydrometer made for batteries to draw up some fluiid and check against the colour scale.

Each cell on a battery is 2 volts, so 2 volts times 6 cells is 12 volts. So if one cell is bad, then they all become bad as the battery needs a total of 12 volts to operate.
