Been out of the sport for awhile and my 12v gel sealed batteries finally died. What is everyone using for their electric starters now?
Just saw one on line and am placing an order for it now. Thanks!Lipo's are nice if you want a cordless starter like Boris Mazor produced where weight is a factor. If you are still using a starter box and the batteries are mounted in the box you have a little more freedom to choose the batteries. Power tool batteries are nice if you are already have the charger and batteries. Take a look online as people are 3D printing battery adapters to connect a Dewalt/Milwaukee/Bauer battery to 4mm banana jacks.
3D printed battery adapters for power tools
Then buy the cheapest tool you can and gut it for the adapter. I was gonna do this with a usb adapter for the dewalt. It cost me like 25 at the time. The project got stalled and then when I was going to start it up again, they were selling them.I could, if I had a tool that was dead. All three of the battery types I have are all new within the past couple of years
