6 volt power supply
« on: April 24, 2014, 06:24:52 PM »
Is there a 6 volt "power supply /jump box" ? I carry a 12 volt in my other cars and would like a 6 volt in the '47... W.Sanders

Haven't seen one, you can momentarily jump with a 12v, just make sure anything can can turn off in the car is off, radio, and such, of course if the battery dies and you need a jump good luck keeping  it running off the generator.

Anybody know exactly what is in those jump boxes?  Could you take one apart and put a 6 volt optima battery in it and have it work reasonably? 

Just a thought.

Its just a re- chargeable battery Glen. I find them a waste of money because when the battery gives out you throw the whole thing away. Better to get yourself a good spare battery and a set of jump leads. You then have a battery to use in the car should you ever need it  also.
