Try To Locate Charger by Make and Model
Check to see if your electric scooter, bike, or go-kart make and model is listed in the Browse Parts by Make and Model section to determine which battery charger it requires. If you can not find the electric scooter, bike, or go-kart make and model then we have two solutions below to help determine the right battery charger.
Locate by Output Rating of Existing Charger (Use this method if the battery charger is not missing.)
If you have the old charger and it is not missing then a new one can be found by reading the output ratings of the existing battery charger. The output ratings should indicate the Voltage and Amp rating of the charger. Simply match these ratings to the same ratings of a new battery charger to select the right charger. Next, the proper output plug will need to be selected. To select the right output plug view the available output plug options below the battery charger description and click on the add to cart button to the right side of the correct output plug. Battery chargers located with the method above can be found on our Battery Chargers page.
If you can not find the right output plug below the battery chargers description then we can usually custom install the right plug on the charger. In this case please submit a Support Ticket and request to special order the battery charger that you need with the output plug that you need.
If the Vehicle Has a Lithium Battery Pack Locate By Getting Charger Specifications From the Seller or Manufacturer
If your vehicle's make and model is not listed on our site or unknown, and if the existing charger is missing or does not have a sticker on it with the output ratings, then there is no way that we know of to determine which charger to use with the battery pack. Sometimes a lithium battery pack will have its Voltage rating labeled on it and this will help to determine what the charger Voltage should be, however, it will not help with determining what the charger Amperage should be. If this is the situation that you are in then we recommend contacting a seller or the manufacturer of the vehicle to ask them what output Voltage and Amperage the charger should be.
If the Vehicle Has a Lead-Acid Battery Pack Locate by Number of and Specifications of the Batteries
If your vehicle's make and model is not listed on our site or unknown, and if the existing charger is missing or does not have a sticker on it with the output ratings, then you can determine which battery charger is required by counting the number of individual batteries in the battery pack and reading the Amp-hour or Ah rating on the batteries.
Match The Lead-Acid Battery Pack To The Correct Battery Charger Using This Chart
|Number Of Batteries||Charger Voltage|
|1 battery||=||12 Volt Charger|
|2 batteries||=||24 Volt Charger|
|3 batteries||=||36 Volt Charger|
|4 batteries||=||48 Volt Charger|
|5 batteries||=||72 Volt Charger|
|Battery Amp Hour or Ah Rating|| Charger Amp Rating|
|5 Amp-hour/Ah batteries||=||500Ma Charger|
|7-8 Amp-hour/Ah batteries||=||1 to 1.6 Amp Charger|
|9-12 Amp-hour/Ah batteries||=||1.6 to 2 Amp Charger|
|18 Amp-hour/Ah batteries||=||2.5 to 3 Amp Charger|
For example, if an electric scooter, bike. or go-kart has three 12 Amp-hour/Ah batteries then it would require a 36 Volt 1.6 Amp battery charger.
