I just bought a wilderness wheel and all the cables, throttle, controller and rack from a bike shop that wanted to unload its surplus equipment. After I got home I wanted to charge the batteries and see if they would hold a charge. I noticed that he gave me a 24V Charger. I measured the batteries that I connected in series and they showed 30V on the volt meter. The charger had the green and teh red light sold on it when i plugged it in to charge. So I dont hink it charged the batteries at all. To charge the batteries what do I need to do? I have the three 12V 10Ah batteries connceted in series and, is that the correct way to charge them with my 24V charger. I saw on ebay a 36V charger. Should I just buy it for the batteries and ditch the 24V charger?
Second problem I ran into is the wheel has no markings on it to let me know if it is a BD24 or BD36. I am a little scared to hook up my wheel cables to the battery pack and burn the wheel if it is a BD24 instead of a BD36. How can I tell if I got a BD24 or BD36? Are there any markings on the wheel that tell you it is a 24 or 36? Besided that I have two set of cables coming out of the wheel. Would this mean its a BD36?
Third is there any way to tell if the throttle has any numbers on it to know if it should be run with 24V or 36V batteries?
Many thanks in advance for your help. I will try yo get some pictures up soon.
