Need 36v charger or PS.

Post by dacflyer » Sat Jul 06, 2019 10:36 am

I have a few projects that are 36v powered. Motorized gadgets.
Anyway i can't find a charger that is somewhere in the 5 to 8 amp range..
Usually 1.5, maybe 2 amps. then jumps to golf cart sizes.
Why is there not any in the 5 to 8 amp range ??
If there are, where's a link..
The one i have right now is 1.8A, good enough for over night charging, but if I need to top off during a break, Then I am stuck with trickle charging.
My batteries are 7 to 12AH.

Hi.
36V usually charges at 42V; times 8A is a sustantial ~400Watt capable charger with few target products.

A few this site sells:

i'll search the models and see what i can find other than Aliexpress or Amazon.
Amazon's on by boycott list. they did me wrong long ago on some stuff i ordered.
it wasn't right, and the did not cover me for it. all they had to do was an exchange. but they said the seller was not an Amazon certified seller.
but apparently they could still sell stuff on Amazon..

I just seen these are more for lithium battery packs.. I'm dealing with SLA / AGM types.

Amazon kicked out a lot of fringe sellers, you may find it more reliable now but you are not necessarily going to get better service from Ali or eBay

well, never had any bad issues with Ebay..and any i did have were resolved quickly.
i may give amazon another try one day, but right now i have a very sour attitude with them..
i did finally find me a charger.. $37.00 for a 5A charger..
thanks for a lead..

How about 3 12-volt Deep Cycle batteries and a charge controller? Charge the 12's individually.
