Morning all
Could anyone help.
Recently I have sent my 36volt battery forklift to its final resting place.
All was not lost though as I have saved 12 of the batteries to make two monster 12volt
cells.
My problem lies with the old 36 volt charger.
Can this in some way be converted to 12volt,or a 36/12 transformer installed?.
It is such a shame that it cannot be used anymore.
Any ideas out there.
