Six 6 Volt or Three 12 Volt Batteries.


New Member
This is for hot rod and diode, or anyone really.
So do i understand correctly that i can use 3 12 volt batteries instead of 6 6 volts.
If so i thought reverse ran on 18 volts, i guess 24 volts make it faster and 12 a little slower in reverse.
I'm asking because i need new batteries for my 36 volt 84 club.
Thanks in advance.
Great forum, very insightful.
keep up the good work guy's.


You can use three 12 volt batteries but your run time and overall life of the batteries will be much shorter than using six 6 volt batteries. I'd suggest using six 6 volt batteries.
Thanks for the compliment on the forum. :hattip:
