    Default 12 volt battery

    my mate gave me a gm 12 volt air compessor
    & i have a old 12 volt jumper thingy, light socket, 240v point, has 2x6 volt batteries (dead)

    so i bought a 12 volt 7amp battery for it, wrong size

    Q. can i charge it with a traxxas lipo charger? has a 2amp setting

    then i'll run the compressor off the battery
    why do we need the NBN ? because the copper network is constipated & needs fibre

    What are the exact details of the 12 volt 7A battery?
    Like format, SLA, Lipo, NiMH etc??

    The Traxxas only does Lipo & NiMH.\_(ツ)_/

    No, just get something like this:


    Don't use laptop chargers.

    This era of thoughtless consumption must end so we can encourage a world of creative geniuses rather than consumer idiots.

    in hindsight i should have gone with the 240 to 12 volt converter
    but was trying to fix me jumper thingy too
    now i got f-all lol
    the compressor still has the ciggy light connection, unbelievably i havnt cut that off yet.
    if i try 1 of the 12v power thingys i have already, i'll run the multi-meter on it as well.
