Would it be ok to run 2 12v 4A SLAs in parallel to give 8A and connect in series with a 12v 8ASLA for 24v 8A? Answered
I'm building an electric go-kart from a bustup mobility scooter and the problem is this. I don't have cash around to buy batteries but do have 2 x 12v SLA @ 4A and 1 12v SLA @ 8A. Would wireing them in the diagram below work OK. Part of me is saying I missing something.
The reason I need 24v above 4A is to power the S-Drive controller & 24v Motor. I'm not sure of the the motor ratings as the label is damaged and can only make out 24v Brushed. I'm also using the S-Drive as I have 3 of them lying around, they're programable and can also handle upto 45A.
Any advice would be greatly apreaciated as my son is excited about the project as at the moment its just a battery issue.
