Are 6v jump starters available?

Post by Red Devil »

Exactly what it says really. I’ve been looking at some beetles which are 6v and I was wondering if you can get a jump starter to use in a 6v system. A quick google hasn’t yielded any results but I’m sure there must be some suppliers that cater for this market aren’t there?

Cheers

Think I may have answered my own question as I’ve found this which implies there are two 5v output settings and one 12v. I hope I’m reading that correctly but I’ll drop them a note to ask. I have a feeling the 5v will be a usb charger however so any info still welcome.

^^^^ The 5v outputs on this unit above are for charging your phones/tablets ect - standard USB is 5v 1A or 2A (iPad charge etc) which is what they state on their ad....

The 12V output is 10A - this is the starting circuit

Its a good question though - I've never seen a 6V starter pack!
