ELECTRIC GO CART HACK

Introduction: ELECTRIC GO CART HACK

I bought this go cart used with no battery's or charger. its runs from 12 to 24 volts, so i took my RYOBI 18 volt  flash light apart and hooked it to the wires that went to the battery. i have a bunch of these batterys so the fun never stops, cause there is always a couple on charge. also it did not have reverse, so i wired in a toggle switch to control the direction.

    Hi, Thanks for your idea !But I have a question, i didn't understand what's the role of the flash light in your go cart?

    i had the flashlight laying around so i took it apart and wired it to the power wires of the cart. then my kids were able to easily remove the batteries to recharge them. in short the flashlight housing just holds the battery.
