# Can you run a 6 volt motor with a 12 volt battery?

Contents

You don’t want to connect a 12-volt battery directly to a 6-volt motor. You will need to get a motor that is rated at 12 volts. Plus, you will need to change the car’s wiring so that it uses a 12-volt current.

## How do you get 6 volts out of a 12 volt battery?

It’s possible to step 12 volts down to 6 volts by incorporating a pair of 10,000-ohm resistors into the circuit. Cut two lengths of wire, and strip each wire of 1/2 inch of insulation at each end. Attach one end of the first wire to the positive terminal on the power supply.

## Can I put a 12V battery in a 6V ride on?

The short answer is no. If the car is designed for a 6V battery, use of a 12V battery will destroy the motor.

## Will 6V work on 12V?

When you convert to 12V you can still use your existing 6V distributor; the only component that has to be changed is the condenser (it must be upgraded to a 12V type). … Your 6V gauges can operate on a 12 volt system as well, but you’ll want to install a voltage reducer in-line on your gauge’s power circuit.

## Can you use a 12 volt battery on a 6-volt deer feeder?

It’ll work just fine. We ran about 15-20 feeders at BAO for over 9 years. Most of those 9 years, our 6V feeders had 12V batteries in them and we never burned a single one up.

## What is the difference between a 12 volt and 6 volt battery?

A battery is full of cells with chemicals that transfer ions back and forth to create electricity. Each cell in a deep-cycle battery can produce about 2 volts. A 6V battery has 3 cells, making a total of 6 volts, and a 12V battery has 6 cells, making a total of 12 volts!

## Can you charge a 12v battery with a 6v charger?

No, there is not enough voltage provided by 6 volt charger to be able to charge a 12 volt battery. Depending on the batteries chemistry a 12 volt battery will actually have different “full” and “charge” voltages.

## Can I use a 12V DC power supply on a 6V?

If the device has its own internal switching regulator, the voltage probably won’t be a problem, but since the 12V power supply has a lower maximum power (12V * 0.35A = 4.2W, and 6V * 1A = 6W), it may draw too much power and the power supply will be damaged.

## How long will a 6V battery last in a deer feeder?

I agree that the \$5 six volt batteries will last 4 to six weeks feeding twice a day.

## What kind of battery does a deer feeder take?

“6 Volt 6v 4.5ah Rechargeable Deer Game Feeder Battery”
