The world we live in is constantly changing by the minute. Everyone wants to move with the times, and you can’t blame a child who wants his/her power wheel to go faster than it does so as to keep up with the trends.
There are some ways on how to modify power wheels. I will focus more on one that I do believe to be more efficient and immediate than the rest. The capacity, voltage or strength of a battery itself plays a significant role in achieving a faster power wheel speed.
Most power wheels come with a 6-volt battery. The battery is usually in place for obvious reasons. This is to power a DC (direct current) motor so as to spin which therefore propels the wheels to run.
Our best option is to put two batteries in place of one. In this case, it will be two 6 volt batteries which total up to 12 volts. Now it would not take a genius to figure out that if the battery is doubled the motor will spin two times faster hence propelling the power wheel to go with as much speed.
The two batteries should be a matching air or of similar capability. If one is worn out, then we won’t get the desired results.
STEPS: HOW TO MAKE A POWER WHEELS CAR GO FASTER
Firstly, you should identify a suitable spot for the extra battery to be placed. Connect the two batteries to ensure they have a universal connector. This ensures that we have a common source of power connecting to both the switch and the motor.
Secondly, ensure the polarity is correct. Keep in mind that both positive terminals on the battery have similar gender connectors. It is vital to use insulated connectors alone for the sake of the child’s safety.
Thirdly, charge both batteries separately to full capacity, to ensure their effectiveness. While at it, you should make sure the extra battery is fixed solidly to avoid any inconvenience.
After going through all these steps, we are safe to say that we successfully have a high power wheel performance.
Finally, other factors can contribute to a power wheel going slower than desired. One of the issues can be exceeding the child’s recommended weight by the power wheel, the surface on which the power wheel is run on and worn out tires. Solving each of the problems stated above will also result to high-performance power wheels.
