Just a quick one guys, been out of the lamping scene for years but got some new permission and gotta get a lamp on it. Just been in the attic and dug my old lamp out. Its a lightforce floodlight with one of the big heavy battery packs. The battery pack is two 6volt batteries, wired together. The charger has a setting for 12volt or 6volt. Im just unsure what i used to have it set on for charging. I would assume being two 6 volt batteries making 12volt total id need the charger set to 12volt?

Only if the batts are wired in series

Batt 1 +
Batt 2 -
Batt 1 - to Batt 2 +

This would then be 12v

As above if in parrelel then it's 6v
