does anyone use a cordless drill battery on their setup what voltage are you using, 12-14-more thinking of switching for weight and space available. I have all Dyna system meaning datalogger, 4000sp, retard, egt, and 3 selenoids and 4 timers.
Lots of people use the 14 volt cordless drill battery ---works fine
Don't do it. The voltage will be there, but you will be lacking enough amps to properly fire the coil.
Not sure where you got your information, but it is completely different than my experience. I use an 18v battery from a Milwaukee cordless drill. I bought a battery mount from Mike Berry/MB Precision Machine. I have 3 batteries and swap them between rounds keeping them charged. They work fine for my application: 158" Harley big twin, Dyna 4000 Super Pro, 4 Dyna coils.
as long as the initial amperage capacity is there vs the draw of the system , you will allways be ok ,, if you are sized wrong for current draw the resulting voltage drop will cause curent to rise and you'll never have more available than the batt. spec ,, higher voltage will allways give a favorable margin of error
Refer General Advice thread FBG dry cell battery:
why dont we have a "Leadacid Larry" link
TryRyche, first hand experiment.. Track and dyno..
We use the Dewalt 14.4 Drill batt and never have a problem out of them. We even use them to run are Vaccum pump works great!
Good idea Jack, we could have Flooded Lead Acid, Sealed Lead Acid, Absorbed Glass Mat, Gelled Electrylite, Nicd , Nimh, Liion, Lipol, etc etc etc ,.but seriously batteries is a very varied subject, i have been in this business for a couple of years and i learn every day,my best tool GOOGLE.
