# Your question: Can you run a 24V motor on 18V?

Contents

Yes, but the drill will have greatly diminished power. Ensure that the charging of the battery is independent of the drill. A 24 V charging circuit will overcharge a 18V battery and likely cause a fire.

## Can I run a 12V motor on 18V?

No. You are applying too much voltage to the motor. This will cause too much current to flow, and in turn, burn out the motor. If it is rated for 12 volts, it should get at the most 10% more or 13.2 volts.

## Can you power a 24V motor with a 12V battery?

At 24V the motor may be able to run but will get fairly hot. Long term it will wear out the bearings and seize up. If it can’t handle the power it will burn out the motor pretty fast. If you run a 12v motor from 24v its current drain and speed will still depend on the mechanical loading.

## What happens if you run a 24V motor on 12V?

24v hooked to 12v will spin for a while on a full battery but there will be no torque. You could stop it with your hand. It is like running your motor with half the spark plugs missing.

## Can I use a 20V battery instead of a 24V?

There must be a voltage difference for the electrons to flow. The charger needs to be a higher voltage than the battery for current to flow into the battery. You could use your 20V power supply, with a voltage booster of some kind, to make a 24V battery charger.

## Can a 9V motor run on 12V?

The 9V batteries are weak because the other half of the story is how much current they can supply. … It’s possible to run a 12V motor on 9V, but it will run slower and with less Torque.

## Can I run a 12V fan on 18V?

If you connect a 12v device to an 18v power supply, you stand a good chance of letting the little bit of smoke escape. The fan speed will increase, but it is not designed to that voltage. The motor will suffer excess current and it will eventually burn ( wont function again ).

## Will 24V work on 12V?

12-volt lights are compatible with 24-volt systems – they use electricity and can be wired into the system. Light bulbs and light strips are designed to operate at slightly lower and slightly higher voltages. … The problem with adding them to a 24-volt system is the excess voltage.

## What is the advantage of 24 volt or 12 volt?

Using a 24 volt supply instead of a 12 volt supply greatly reduces the wiring cost to almost half the original cost. This is so because increasing the voltage of a system causes a reduction in the current through it, and in turn reduces the size of the wires you need .

## Can a 24V motor be converted to 12V?

While in theory 24V stuff can work using 12V, this is not always the case. If I remember correctly, the heat generated in a conductor is proportional to the square of the voltage; fire likelihood is a nasty side effect of this. A knowledgeable parts guy, as per @beno ‘s advise, is a good option.

## What battery do I need for a 24 volt trolling motor?

24 Volt Systems (2 Batteries)

Two 12-volt deep cycle batteries are required.

## How do you tell if a motor is 12 or 24 volt?

The nameplates are most often found in the foot petals of the motor. Otherwise, you can look at the configuration of the trolling motor batteries to find the volts. Open the hood and look at the battery. If you see 6 cells, it’s a 12-volt battery, but if you see 12 cells, it means it’s a 24-volt battery.

## What is difference between 12V and 24V?

The main difference between a 12V battery and a 24V battery is the amount of power store in it. A 24V battery of the same ‘Ah’ rating as of a 12V store twice power. Because the energy store in the battery is given by multiplying battery voltage with Battery Ampere hour.

## Can I charge a 24V battery with a 18V charger?

It will probably work but could overcharge the battery if not monitored. Originally Answered: Can you charge an 18v battery with a 24v charger? Yes. Simply connect a resistor in series in the circuit.

## Can you charge a 18V battery with a 20V charger?

Charging a Cordless Drill Battery with Laptop Charger

Most laptop chargers are rated for 18-20V, which is very suitable for charging an 18V battery. The process is simple. Understand the type of connector your laptop charger has.

## Can I use a 40 volt battery in a 24 volt tool?

No, not without intervening circuitry to step down the voltage to 20 volts. You can generally use a higher capacity battery (that is one with more amp hours and thus run time) but the battery itself has to be 20 volts. Higher voltages will destroy the tool.
